                         INTRODUCTION
     He  told her the pictures would be for his eyes only.' He prom-
ised they would be hidden away  on a compact disc.2 So Annmarie
Chiarini, after relentless coaxing, agreed to send nude photographs
of herself to her long-distance boyfriend, Joey.3
     Annmarie's  ordeal began when  they broke up in 2010.4 Joey
promised  to destroy her.' He put the disc containing Annmarie's
photos up for auction on eBay under the listing English Professor
Nude  Photos! and forwarded  the link to Annmarie's friends and
acquaintances.6
     Consumed by humiliation, Annmarie oscillated between
panic and persistent anxiety.' She would often wake up at 3:00 AM
