Learn how to permanently remove posts from MyEx.com.

MyEx.com is a revenge porn website that is used to publicly shame and humiliate previous romantic partners. Users of the website post sexually explicit pictures, videos, and other derogatory information about their ex-lovers.  While it is very easy for users of the site to put content up, there is often very little recourse for victims  to take content down.

Currently, there are no federal laws that prohibit websites from hosting revenge porn. In fact, a federal law called the Communications Decency Act largely shields websites from legal consequences stemming from material submitted and published on their site by third parties.

Laws Against Revenge Porn on Site Like MyEx.com

Some states are starting to pass legislation to deal with the revenge porn phenomenon. For example, in October of last year California passed a law that criminalizes revenge porn. The law makes it a misdemeanor for individuals to take and then circulate sexually explicit images of another person that were supposed to be private without consent and with the intent to harass or annoy the other person. If convicted, a violation can carry up to a $1,000.00 fine and six months of jail time.

Even though California’s recent law is an important step toward protecting victims of revenge porn and groundbreaking in many respects, many have leveled criticisms of the law because it does not go far enough. For victims and critics, the penalties appear weak. Additionally, the law has been criticized by many because it does not cover “selfies,” only images taken by others. Furthermore, the law does nothing to help remove the images from revenge porn websites, it only serves to punish the person who submitted or posted the content.

Although the website “MyEx.com” currently includes a link on each post to “Remove My Name”, the link appears to go to a third-party “reputation site” that only offers services to suppress information and links off the first page of Google.  The site also requests people send a $399.99 payment to the Philippines of all places. Very shady indeed.Learn how to remove revenge porn posts on MyEx.com.

Even if a third party reputation service could get content completely removed from a site like MyEx.com, they cannot guarantee that the person who put content up in the first place won’t just re-post the same content and images. Only an attorney has the ability to confront the perpetrators and seek a court order if necessary to truly put a stop to a revenge porn attack.

Revenge porn is form of cyber harassment and bullying. It is socially and emotionally damaging to its victims, especially if personal information is attached to offending material.
