Not too long ago an acquaintance sent me a text message saying “I’ve just been watching porn and saw you. When did you do that?” Um, I beg your pardon?

My mind started racing. Like a lot of people I’ve filmed some home made bits and pieces and I’m probably not as judicious as I should be when it comes to sharing some of the images I’ve taken. Had someone I’d shared a short video with shared something online or had one of my fellow “performers” posted something? It was unlikely I thought.

With baited breath the acquaintance went off to find a screenshot from the porno. It turns out it is a guy who lives or lived in Sydney and was in the porno I did some photography on many years ago but it wasn’t me and in my opinion the only similarity was skin colouring and a scruffy unshaven look. It wasn’t me.

It just goes to show, when you put something out there it can always come back. If I did porn I wouldn’t be ashamed but you have to expect that someone will see it.
