Abstract: Revenge pornography is a current crime which involves disgruntled lovers to upload on social media, intimate pictures of their once loved one with disparaging comments. As soon as the picture is uploaded it is shared within seconds and the victim's life is turned upside down. The article examines the emotions and legal aspects behind this act of revenge pornography. The introduction focuses on the progress of pornography alongside technology and the growth of sex trade with the development of the internet. Current Laws are examined to give a good overview of the current Criminal and Civil laws. Criminal laws which specifically target revenge pornography both in Malta and Internationally are also targeted in the article.
