A new law was introduced in England and Wales over sharing sexually explicit images without the subject’s consent in April last year.

Of 80 reported cases since the new law was introduced in April last year, 70 of the victims were women.

More than half the total number of complaints involved victims in their 20s, with 13 teenagers also targeted. The oldest victim was in their 60s.
