Never Take Intimate Pictures
Incidents like this are a great reminder to always be aware that although it may feel right, or romantic to share intimate photos with your partner, always remember that those photos are forever and if things ever go wrong in your relationship who knows what could happen with them. The best advice is to stay away from allowing them to be taken altogether.
