New Law in Texas Makes it a Crime to Send Unsolicited Nude Photos

Texas is taking a stand against people who like to send you nude photos you never requested.

The new law taking effect in Texas today (Sept. 1) criminalizes so-called “cyber-flashing,” in which people send unwanted nude photos to a recipient, mostly women, who haven’t asked for it. House Bill 2789, signed into law by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in May, makes it a Class C misdemeanor for anyone to send an unwanted, unrequested indecent photo – whether it’s sent via text, a dating app, email or any other platform.

The law makes Texas one of the first states to criminalize unwanted sexual images. Those who are found guilty of breaking the law could face a $500 fine.

“Many people – especially women – get unwanted sexually explicit pictures by text or social media,” said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. “Now, it’s illegal in Texas.”
