    Hey @joshy123 thank you for reaching out on here. I just wanted to reassure you that we can all make mistakes from time to time because we are human beings. No one is perfect at times and we can make mistakes. It sounds like what happened and I am hearing that you send an explicit picture to someone you thought was a friend, and now they have taken your face, image and number and are threatning to post that image if you don't pay them money. It also sounds that you liked that person as well and you know her for quite some time. It sounded like she was being very very threatening towards even if she sent you a message about feeling horny. May I ask if you feel comfortable sharing and you definitely don't have to, did she ask you to take a picture explicitly and then send it to her?. Because if she did then technically that is manipulative behaviour and also technically she may be harrassing you there. Sometimes even people we may be friends with can ask us to do things we may not want do or we may feel pressurised in that moment to do so. I can imagine how stressful that situation must be for you right now. It definitely does sound like she was manipulating you and blackmailing you just like @faolan suggested.

    It may be an idea to report this to police straight away because this could potentially escalate further if not dealt with properly. Again we can make mistakes but sometimes we need to think about things first especially if and I might be mis-reading this so I apologise if I am not writing this quite well, but a friend is being very particularly pushy or seems to be manipulative in the way the words thing. The thing is people can be quite clever with how they word things so for example if she messaged you saying she felt 'horny' that may have been suggesting that she wanted you to send an explicit picture but she worded it differently not to arouse suspcisious in some form. I'd say if she keeps further threatning you, keep a log or track any evidence even writing down things in a notebook because then you will have evidence if you need to go to the police too. I am always here too if you do need any help with anything or support during this tricky time for you <3.

    Sending you a hug,

    Amy22 <3

    Could involving the police lead to Josh being in trouble with them for sending an explicit pic which the girl is likely to tell them was unwanted?
