"the Pictures may have been taken voluntarily, but have ended up in circulation and continues for several years later be published on web sites with sexual övergreppsmaterial on the children."
" We are seeing more and more material that children and young people have taken on themselves in our hotline. The risk is that they end up on pages where there are perpetrators who exploit the images for their own purposes, " says Anna Karin Hildingsson Boqvist, secretary-general of Ecpat."

"most young people can see the benefits of sharing nude pictures. It is seen as a way to flirt, to get confirmation and explore their sexuality. But many also experience regret and concern about what happens with the images and a sense of having lost control of the situation."
"– Above all, it is about the feeling that the abuse does not end, and with that there are an infinity of how long this image can be on the network and where it can pop up says Ecpats secretary-general."
