i didnt save any images - just saw them on screen and yes i have cleared my history. If images like this can be "normal" they were - clearly no coercion and the models seemed happy to be posing.
So you feel i do not need to wait for a knock on my door?
No, you will be fine. Just make sure you delete your browsing history etc.I dont think you will get a knock on the door
Does that clarify? Alex
