  • Just knowing that that video is online

  • and anyone can watch it at anytime,

  • it makes me feel sick.

  • I had met this guy online on a band's page.

  • His name was Chris.

  • I was 16 at the time and he was 19.

  • We started chatting because obviously, like, we were into the same music.

  • We started off just sending pictures to each other.

  • Just sort of like smiley faces, or just like...

  • But he started asking for sexual pictures of me.

  • I really didn't want to send them, like, I hadn't done anything like that before and it felt really weird.

  • He just kept saying to me 'look it wasn't a big deal' and 'everyone was doing it',

  • and he would stop talking to me if I didn't.

  • I just kind of, yeah, I did it in the end.

  • He wanted to meet up with me.

  • So we went out and then he took me to his place.

  • We, erm, we had sex that night actually.

  • The next time his tone changed.

  • He was quite scary and controlling.

  • He started then saying he wanted to film us having sex.

  • Yeah, I let him film us.

  • One of my best friends came to me and he said that he had seen a video of me and Chris having sex online.

  • That was the worst.

  • Chris uploaded it to a porn website I think.

  • It was all so difficult I just couldn't even make it into college.

  • I felt so embarrassed and ashamed and so alone because I didn't know who else had ever been through something like that.

  • The police got involved after my parents found out.

  • But it was horrible because I didn't want anything to do with it anymore I wanted it to be over.

  • But they wanted to press charges 'cause what Chris had done was illegal 'cause I was under 18 at that time he filmed me and uploaded it.

  • They said that everyone else that would've seen the video online had broken the law as well.

  • Chris is now on the Sex Offenders' Register.

  • I feel really angry about what he did to me.

  • I trusted him.

  • And I feel really angry towards the other guys as well 'cause they may as well have been in the room at the time.

  • It's taken me a lot of counselling to try and get over what's happened.

  • And no matter what I do that video is always gonna be online.

  • And I just hate that I can't get it back.
