It could be argued that it is the prudish and prurient attitude of society that really harms the people whose pictures are released. If they were treated as no big deal then the blackmailers would have no leverage and little incentive.

I've been saying similar for years.

The utopia depicted in Iain M. Banks' Culture novels, where nothing is taboo so long as it doesn't hurt anyone else, may be fanciful and unobtainable but is certainly worth aspiring to.
