California is considering a law that would make it illegal to post "revenge porn" in the US state.

The state assembly bill would make it a crime to post pictures of anyone online in a state of full or partial undress.

Crucially, the latest version of the bill makes it illegal to post pictures even with that person's consent.

This is why you never perform a sexual act on camera.

I film all my sexual adventures. I have to. Just in case.
