“ne photo posted on American Apparel’s U.K Instagram featured a young woman in a short pleated skirt, leaned over to very clearly reveal her underwear. Maybe I should revise—the photograph was not of the woman, rather, it was a photo of her ass.

They are caught up in that cycle of whatever anger or hatred they are feeling, and they cannot control themselves” (Raphael, 2004, p. 78).”

Which was made by her boyfriend at the time, who was married, and thirteen years her senior. She sued to try and stop it [the tape’s circulation] and she couldn’t and it became the best selling sex tape for two years on the porn market.”
