intimate image

An intimate image or video is one that was taken in circumstances that give rise to a reasonable expectation of privacy, and shows the person:

  • naked,
  • exposing their genital region, buttocks, or breasts, or
  • engaged in explicit sexual activity.

It is a criminal offence to publish, distribute, share, or sell intimate images of someone without their consent. In order to be found guilty of this offence, the person in the image must continue to have a reasonable expectation of privacy at the time you commit the offence.
