Introduction

 

Revenge Porn means disseminating intimate pictures, videos, and recordings without the consent of victims. The report of revenge porn has been increased during the Lockdown due to stress, breakups, job loss, increased use of the Internet, and social media. Recently, The case of the Bois locker room got much attention. It was all about the gangrape chat. Later on, news outspread that a girl masterminded gangrape chat. It was actually shameful that the teenagers are engaged in such kind of activities. Apart from these mentioned reasons, there are other reasons behind revenge porn and they are - Legal Lacunae It was a great injustice to victims of cybercrime as the Indian Penal Code,1860 and Information Technology Act,2000 are available but they don't cover the problem completely. The Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, 1986 criminalizes the activities which involve uploading and disseminating the indecent pictures of women. But they are still not providing justice to the full extent. Sec 354C of IPC deals with punishment for such activities which is imprisonment for the term not less than one year and may extend to three years and fine.

 

 

For the second attempt, the term shall not be less than three years and may extend to seven years and fine. The person is taking away the right to life with dignity of the victim and he is justly punished with imprisonment not less than one year and not more than 7 years at any cost. This isn't justice to the victim. Revenge Porn is misnomer The word Revenge Porn fails to communicate and express the latitude and gravity of the activities. Victims are not able to live their life with dignity and sometimes they feel so embarrassed that they commit suicide. Voyeurism means when the person shows his interest in observing the people when they are engaged in sexual activity, or undressed or naked. This kind of activity gave rise to the case of revenge porn. The urge to have intimate pictures and videos also arises due to voyeurism. It is also mentioned under Section 354(d) of the Indian Penal Code.

 

 

Gendered nature: It is usually assumed that the female gender is always exploited by revenge porn but in some research, it was observed that male is also exploited. Women too exploit and blackmail mail regarding videos and pictures. So, this issue isn't limited to any particular gender. Romanticizing women's non-consent In any relationship when both the partners are having trust over each other then they share intimate pictures and videos with each other. In many cases, if the woman is showing no interest in sharing any intimate pictures or videos or not ready for any sexual intercourse then her consent is romanticized with trust. Trust is the soul of every relationship. So, on this basis, her consent is taken forcefully or by manipulating her. In most cases of revenge porn, ex-partners after breakups disseminate the intimate pictures and videos.

 

 

Cyber Bullying: Cyber Bullying is the way through which the victim is harassed, threatened, embarrassed, and leaves the victim depressed and sometimes takes away the life of the victim. Cyberbullying involves cyberporn. Intimate videos and pictures are taken by the person intentionally to bully the victim. The worst part is that there are no special Anti-Cyber-Bullying laws in India.
