Revenge Porn Help Centre

Have you had your intimate images shared online without your consent?

You're not alone, we are here to help

We are an Indonesia's service supporting adults (aged 18+) who are experiencing intimate image abuse, also known as, revenge porn. The Help Centre was established in May 2020 during COVID-19 outbreak, as when we all entered lockdown, digital forms of communication and connection became central to our lives - and that includes our dating lives. In lockdown, the exchange of nude and sexual images is likely to be a more common way to express our intimacy with another person. We have also observed an increasing trend in people being blackmailed over their intimate images, as well as people trying to monetise their intimate content.

Intimate image abuse can also be referred to as ‘revenge porn’, non-consensual pornography or image-based sexual abuse.

It is the act of sharing intimate images or videos of someone, either on or offline, without their consent with the intention of causing distress. 

Based on UU No. 44 of 2008 (Pornography) made it, ‘an offence for a person to disclose a private sexual photograph or film if the disclosure is made without the consent of an individual who appears in the photograph or film, and with the intention of causing that individual distress’.

About Intimate Image Abuse

Intimate image abuse can also be referred to as 'revenge porn', non-consensual pornography or image-based sexual abuse. We've answered some common queries about this type of abuse below.

Intimate image abuse is the act of sharing intimate images or videos of someone, either on or offline, without their consent.

In Indonesia, it is an offence for a person to disclose a private sexual photograph or film without the consent of an individual who appears in the photograph or film, with the intention of causing them distress.

This crime can be committed by anyone, it’s sometimes an aggrieved former partner, but NOT always. You do not have to be in a relationship with the perpetrator for it to be considered intimate image abuse.

Anyone can be a victim of intimate image abuse, regardless of your gender, sexuality and whether you are 18 or 80+.

The intention is to cause significant embarrassment, harassment and shame and the effects can be devastating for victims, especially on their mental health and wellbeing. To have explicit images that are deeply personal in the public domain is an emotionally traumatic and violating experience. The effect on victims is often pervasive and long-lasting. While they have been the victim of a crime, those affected often internalise feelings of guilt and shame. Depression and anxiety are sadly commonplace. There can be reputational and financial harm from employment loss. Some feel so isolated and overwhelmed that they consider suicide. If you are feeling like this, you are not alone, please seek help. People are waiting to listen.

In some cases, the content is shared in an act of revenge to embarrass, humiliate or cause distress to a person after the breakdown of a relationship, but it’s not always about revenge. content can be shared as a way of financial extortion, or blackmail, sometimes known as ‘sextortion’, to expose someone who has a high profile status or to ‘out’ someone. We often see it as an element in wider cases of stalking, harassment or domestic abuse.

As we know, the internet is a massive space for platforms to share content. We see most content shared on social media platforms or general porn websites. In some cases, links to the content are emailed or sent to family, friends or employers. Some cases have stemmed from hacked devices or cloud storage (for example the high profile iCloud hack where hundreds of images were accessed, including those of celebrities).

Reporting to Social Media

The Revenge Porn Help Centre works closely with most of the major social media platforms to help prevent this type of abuse, and when it does happen, develop strategies for quick removals.
On most social media platforms it is against their community guidelines to share intimate content posted without consent. Every site is slightly different with how you should report the content but there is usually a ‘report’ tool on the image in question.
However, we know that when you’re in a panic or you’re utterly distressed about having your intimate content active on a social media page, all common sense and logic goes out the window. If the content you want to report is not intimate image abuse but something else which is harmful, such as online abuse or harassment, please find more information and help on Report Harmful Content.
Here’s a quick rundown of where you can report intimate images on the popular social media platforms:
