Some 4 percent of Americans have been victims of revenge porn, according to a report released Tuesday by the Data & Society Research Institute and the Center for Innovative Public Health Research.

Revenge porn is described as displaying nude or nearly nude photos or videos of someone without their consent.

The report is the first of its kind, and is based on research conducted by Princeton Survey Research International from May 17 to July 31 of this year.

Respondents ages 15 to 29 were the most likely group to be targeted, with 7 percent of victims falling under the age of 30 and 2 percent over 30.

The report also found that 10 percent of women under 30 have had someone threaten to post explicit photos of them.

In that same age category, 4 percent of men and 6 percent of women said someone had posted a nearly nude or nude image of them without their consent.
