Another Omegle Incident. - May 17th 2017, 09:33 PM

This thread has been labeled as non-PG13 by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for younger users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Okay, so probably around an hour ago I was on ormgle. Small details to consider I was initially just messing around, I am homosexual and I am 19. I was just browsing and skipping as one does on Omegle and appeared this 35 year old guy. We talked, didnt exchange much info besides age and country and we talked until, he told him what he was doing...he was playing with himself. I didn't want but I got excited and showed him my penis for around 10 secs. I also showed my face before this...and now I'm scared. I literally made an account because I'm scared. I'm not scared of a video of me being posted on some porn site (because the oversaturattion of porn and porn sites). I'm scared that this man will track me down and exploit me or blackmail me. I hear alot of stories and I was reading a couple and now I'm scared. I don't want to believe that it only 10 seconds I could have ruined my whole life and just flushed my career and everything down the drain. I know that they can find your IP address. And his face was shown to. I'm just scared and need to know I'm gonna be alright. I was planning of telling some friends, but I don't want them to know what I do in my private time. I need some advice, some affirmations. And I promise Im not trolling, people tend to think these kinds of posts are trolly but I swear, im being honest. I feel stupid because I knew I shouldn't have done it and I feel bad for getting excited, and now I have to live with this guilt and self-pity and frustration.

The 35 year old french man was attractive and he didn't seem like the type of person to exploit a younger person despite our limited interaction. I just..hope that he isn't the person I'm afraid of. Someone evil and disturbed enough to exploit me, a stranger. I know I'm 19 but still that's like revenge porn.

Hey there,

While I can understand your concern, I don't think you have anything to worry about. When people choose to blackmail others, it's usually for a specific purpose, namely having something to gain from the blackmail. It's highly unlikely that he will see any point in blackmailing a 19 year old, as there really isn't much that he would be able to gain from doing so. Additionally, blackmail meant to cause embarrassment usually has something personal behind it, which wouldn't be the case if you don't actually know this man.

Don't worry about this too much. It was a mistake, but I highly doubt those 10 seconds are going to come back to bite you later down the road. However, I would like to encourage you to use this as a lesson and think through the things that you do on the Internet beforehand next time.

Take care,
Sammi

she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

The Omegle horror stories we hear about sometimes often end with the "blackmailer" revealing that they were recording the whole time and taunting them with it or something. Like Sammi said, usually blackmail is to provide personal gain, and more often than not, that personal gain would come from the "look on someone's face" after revealing that you now have video evidence that could potentially ruin their future and career.

I doubt that someone would try to get a video or info on you, not tell you about it or taunt you with it, and then randomly post it somewhere. If they randomly posted it somewhere without you knowing, they wouldn't get the satisfaction of terrifying you, so therefore, what would be the fun in that?

I don't think you need to worry about this too much. I like the phrase "we'll cross that bridge when we get to it", because it helps keep me in the now, and dealing with current problems... rather than creating imaginary problems and imaginary solutions, ultimately wasting time because that problem doesn't even exist at the moment.
I do agree that you need to use this experience and really think hard about what you're actually potentially doing to yourself, next time one of these situations occurs.

Just fear gone awry, known as "catastrophizing".

Something us humans appear to be very good at!

Always imagining the very worst possible and highly unlikely thing.

You're only 19, therefore you don't have any money, so no one's going to waste any time trying to blackmail you. It's not worth the effort.

Sometimes things actually are just as they seem. Just two homosexuals having a little fun.

Blessings!
