It is not a new thing to see one's bedroom photos and videos leaking on social media and going viral.
Bedroom photos and videos leak for several reasons, including getting financial gain from the victim among others.
Jealous Ex-lovers also leak such pictures and videos as a way of punishing or rather pulling out their revenge
No one is safe when it comes to leaking such, you may say 'I never record such videos', but with advanced technology, someone you are in love with can record without your knowledge.
A recent case of leaked videos involved a prominent politician in the country and a famous socialite, even though they both refuted the videos.
Presidential hopeful Dr Mukhisa Kituyi is the latest politician who had to come out to refute the video after a woman leaked a video showing body parts said to be his.
Through social media, Facebook, Dr Mukhisa said the body part that was in the video was not his.
Socialite Bridget Achieng also recently had social media embarrassment after her alleged videos leaked.
She was part of the trending topic on social media for days, with a section of Kenyans trolling her for the same.
Since no one is safe, it is, therefore, good to know how to handle the situation when the videos leak to avoid embarrassment.
Love Matters Kenya has today outline ways of dealing with such cases to avoid embarrassment.
They used social media and educated Kenyans by saying the first thing one should do is to reach out or rather contact the social media site where the video or photo is posted.
For instance, if the pictures are posted on Facebook, the first thing is to contact Facebook and inform them.
You are then expected to say the photo or video was posted without your knowledge and permission, and you request that the same is pulled down or deleted.
They noted that the picture will be deleted once the social media site is informed.
More so, you are also told that filing a case with the person who leaked the video is another way of dealing with the matter.
"If your ex posts (bedroom) photos or videos of you on social media, please contact the social media site where the photo is posted as soon as possible. Ask them to remove the photo because it is online without your permission. Search yourself through search engines to see if the photos or videos have also been posted on other sites. Also remember, what your EX has done is more common and is punishable. Therefore, report this to the police," read the post in part.
