Mum Finds Her Baby Bump Photos On Fetish Porn Site

A Sydney mum is warning  pregnant women to be careful when posting pictures of their baby bumps online, because the photos could end up on a fetish site for men who get off on looking at pictures of pregnant women.

Blogger Meg Ireland, who writes a website called “Shut Up Meg” has written about her own experience of finding out that private photos she shared of her bump in a mother’s group on social media in 2014 ended up somewhere she definitely hadn’t intended them to be seen.

The 25 year old discovered that her pregnancy photos had been shared on a website dedicated to “preggophilia” which is a porn site for people who like pregnant women.

Meg writes:

“That time my bump went viral in a not so good way. 

This bump pic along with around 15 other pictures of mine ended up on an online “preggophilia” site. Which is a porn site for people who like pregnant women. 

I see so many people upload their bump pics and now I just gasp and hope to god they don’t get into the hands of someone they shouldn’t. 

We shouldn’t have to worry about people stealing our photos, but unfortunately it happens ALL THE TIME! 

When I was scrolling through this god awful site trying to find where this thread was, I saw some pretty fucked up shit. People who were uploading pictures of their wife to other users, brother in laws uploading pictures of their sister in laws and women uploading pictures of their work colleagues!!! I literally couldn’t believe what I was seeing. 

Who was I to blame for this? People would say I should only blame myself for uploading “personal pictures” and that it was my own fault (even though my profile was then private). I see it differently. I didn’t care that someone had screen shot my photo to show someone, it’s was what they did with my photo/s that made me physically sick to my stomach. 

WHYYY should we have to sit and worry about this when uploading a photo on our social media sites?

Please be cautious about who follows/adds you. Block them if they look like a creepy MF.

Moral of the story, I totes want another bubba and a big Ol’ belly like this again! 😫😫”

She told the Daily Mail Australia she she saw the pictures about six to eight months ago after they were stolen from an online mother’s group.

‘One person in the group was a fake and was using my picture to encourage other ladies to post pictures of their bellies so they could steal them and post them on these bizarre sites,’ she said.

‘I emailed the website after having to go through all the horrible content to try and find it… they took it down after I threatened legal action.

‘I just want to spread awareness and make sure others realise there are these people out there targeting innocent pregnant women online,” she said.
