How to Describe Being XXX'd

Is there a name for this phenomenon?

It appears to be increasingly common, but it's hard to discuss it if there isn't terminology identifying it. In addition to a name for that kind of photo, is there a verb for having this done to you ( e.g. my ex just xxx'd me)?

Yes, where xxx="put naked pictures of me on the internet without my permission."

How about Xposed?

Or, Xposted?

If there isn't one already, I'd like to second "sleazebagging."

Hmmm...let's try this out:

Bodcasting: "My ex has been bodcasting me."

Bed-bugged: "We were bed-bugged and I didn’t even know it."

Screw-tubed: "I thought I was posing just for him, but I’ve been screw-tubed." (See also: nude-tubed).

Sack-jacked: (To have intimacy jacked (stolen) from the sack (bed): "I was sack-jacked!" (See also: sack-hacked).

Pose-*: Create your own combination phrase, such as: Posied, pose-hosed, pose-dived (See also: Exposted/exposed)

Booby-trapped

Sc0rned: A combination of p0rn + scorn ("Hell hath no fury like a woman sc0rned.")

S'all I can think of.

What about pron'd ?
Example "I'll send you these pics but don't pron me all over the internet."

Screwtubed wins. I mean, this isn't just double or triple entendre, this is a veritable n-tendre with n defying belief.

"Bodcasting" is genius. I hate love you, Milkman Dan.

Thanks for all these suggestions. I guess that means that there's no existing term for this stuff. It does seem to be a new genre of porn, somewhere in between amateur, voyeur, and snuff. A name for it would be useful, so you could say something like, "is this legit amateur, or is it xconned?"

What!?!? I can see the amateur and the voyeur, but what possible connection does this have with snuff other than it's undesirable (at least in retrospect) and involves a camera?

Snuff is a powerful word, and with good reason. Using the word in this context just cheapens it.

The connection to snuff (and the distinction from amateur and voyeur and gonzo, etc) is that it's fundamentally non-consensual. (Which leads to the triple-entendre, xcon.)

But this wasn't fundamentally non-consensual. There was consent for the photographing, but no consent for the exhibition.

The public distribution is fundamentally non-consensual. But I agree, murdering people while you rape them is far worse than posting naked pictures of them on the net. Sorry if that wasn't clear the first time two times around, stinkycheese.
