I wouldn't say it's dumb.

Then you are forgiving to the Nth degree.

Whether it's the Internet or 1973, it's ridiculously stupid to have compromising photos taken of yourself for anything other than professional uses. If you're in to porn, then showing your assets has a very clear career advantage. Being in accounts payable or HR, not so much. Fun little perks are like getting roadhead on your way to her/his parents for dinner. Shit that, unless you are directly caught by a LEO, isn't going to come back and haunt you 5 years down the road.

It has nothing to do with trust and everything to do with comporting yourself like there is a day that exists after tomorrow. The stupid shit you do today on devices that can store and easily transfer that data to third and unknown parties will come back to bite you in the ass. It's not an "if", it's a "when". There is zero possibility that "never" is going to factor in to the equation on when something that egregiously stupid comes back to haunt you.
