Youth-produced sexual images have been at the heart of moral panic and child protection concerns within public and legal discourse in the UK. This anxiety revolves around the notion that young people’s sharing of sexual images inherently triggers a chain reaction of harms and losses; from lost images, to lost innocence, lost privacy, and lost rights. Although the Protection of the Children Act 1978 and the Criminal Justice Act 1988 prohibit the circulation of nude images of under 18s in England, the criminal prosecution services have expressed a reluctance to criminalise young people for sharing images consensually amongst their peers. The non-legality of youth-produced sexual images means that educators and practitioners are unable to address the lived experiences of young people’s digitally-mediated relationships. As a result, young people are encouraged to refrain from sharing sexual images through deterrent-focused education messages, as exemplified by the Direspect NoBody campaign. I observe that this doubly negative framework upholds gendered double standards of sexual propriety and paradoxically engenders the very harms its aims to prevent, leaving young people who are exposed online unprotected. In this paper I aim to disrupt the victim-blaming discourse held in a dominant ‘pedagogy of regret’ and call for digital and sexuality education frameworks which promote a model of collective responsibility and a pedagogy of respect. Shame, loss and harm need not be a forgone conclusion for young people in the context of positive sexual rights and educational messages that Respect EveryBody.
