DALLAS -- Imagine you’re in a relationship and then something goes very wrong. The personal pictures you shared before you broke up could now be floating around the Internet on porn sites.

“At the end of the day, it’s wrong,” Janie Lovvorn said.

Tuesday, a new Texas law went into effect making revenge porn a crime.

“I was kind of shocked that it wasn’t illegal already. That’s kind of crazy,” Lovvorn said. “I think it definitely needs to be illegal. That’s ridiculous.”

It is now a class A misdemeanor to post sexually explicit or nude images on the net without the partner or spouse’s permission. The new law is the brainchild of Senator Sylvia Garcia.

NewsFix asked, have you ever wondered if that could happen to you?

“Definitely not a possibility that that could happen to me; it would be a scary thought if that was a chance,” Ty Marlin said.

“I kind of feel that might have been your fault in the first place,” Tyler Oliver said.

“People make mistakes in their past," Lovvorn explained. "And nobody should have it publicized all over TV and the internet, no matter what they’ve done in the past."
