Hunter Moore Makes a Living Screwing You

The hated revenge-porn profiteer says he wants to teach a lesson with his web site. How long before the 26-year-old learns one himself?

Such cautionary tales don't stop approval-seeking minors from self-submitting. "I have little girls e-mail me naked pictures of themselves like, 'I hope you like me,'" Moore says. "It's really bad." It's the one area in which Moore seems to show a glimmer of personal responsibility. He talks about establishing a nonprofit that would educate minors about the potential consequences of underage sexting. "Some of them think it's funny to put them on my site. They don't realize: Not only are you fucking over that girl, you're fucking over your life, too. You're going to be a sex offender for the next 10 years when I report it—not only are you fucked, your whole life is fucked. That's my main goal, but people don't want to hear about that stuff."

Then again, the noise drowning out that stuff might be the squealing minors proudly claiming Is Anyone Up as an ambition. For example, an arbitrary search for the site's Twitter handle and the number 18 brings up "i hope your [sic] still there so when i turn 18 i can self submit myself :]" (March 25) and "Can't wait til I'm 18 so I can happily self submit to @is_anyone_up and hopefully one day fuck @Huntermoore" (March 27). It gets soul-scorchingly redundant from there.

"Oh, I love that shit," he says. Laughing. "I love it." I ask about this on two separate conversations two weeks apart just to be sure, and his response is remarkably consistent. "To be perfectly honest, I think it's fucking awesome that people want to be on my site when they turn 18." The underage ambition to be nude on his site is cool, just not the unlawful execution. "It's kind of disgusting but amazing at the same time." They probably don't even mean it, he contends. "It's the Internet," he dismisses. What about in real life? "If some fucking 14-year-old ran up to me off the playground and was like, 'I can't wait to be on your site,' I'd be like, 'All right, I think it's time to shut down the site.' Yeah, wait, are 14-year-olds even on playgrounds? Anyway, whatever."

Hunter Moore says there’s an easy way to avoid a cameo on Is Anyone Up: Don’t take nudes; you don’t have a problem.

Here's what it's like to be a 19-year-old college sophomore and learn your lacy pink panties are displayed worldwide on Is Anyone Up. You open Twitter one afternoon while doing homework, check your reply column, and—oh, no!—instantly start to cry. Your iPhone rings. Friends are on the line, using their soft, concerned voices. Some kid you sorta know from Poughkeepsie, whose band was recently signed, tweets at you, "Nice tits!" which is a megaphone to mutual friends that you're naked on the Internet. Your Facebook account turns into an unwelcome string of gross notes from pervy zombie mouth-breathers and douche bags you hated in high school. By the next morning, you have 600-plus friend requests, 400 brand-new Twitter followers, and countless raunchy messages concerning your body parts.

At least that's more or less how Kristen, who asked to have her name changed in this story, remembers the immediate aftermath. One Thursday, the New Paltz student came home from soccer practice to find herself locked out of her online accounts. When she got into her Facebook account again, her chat icon was goading personal information from acquaintances on her friends list—she'd been hacked by a stranger. Three hours later, her name was a headline on Is Anyone Up.

Four weeks after the post, we meet up at a tiny Midtown Starbucks. "What bothered me the most was the fact that a complete stranger was the person who submitted them," she says, flattening a tear on her bottom left eyelid. Pink nails, pierced nostril, she's a cute blonde in town from upstate for half the day, helping her mom with a conference; she's terrified of her parents finding out, and the excuse for our surreptitious conversation is shoe shopping. The bright side: The photos on the website are tasteful posterior shots and one dreamy black-and-white semi-nude torso. Kristen swears the faceless photos had never been sent. Saved in her e-mail, they were intended to be gifts for the long-distance "kid who I have been seeing, who I've been in love with on and off for years." Unfortunately, few people believed her that a hacker had excavated the nudes, including him. "He didn't want to talk with me anymore."

At least they weren't worse. "All my friends were like, at least you're not the girl shoving fruits and vegetables in places they shouldn't be," she says, feigning comfort. "Everyone was like, 'They're very artistic!' I'm like, 'Oh. My. God.'

Kristen could've, in theory, subpoenaed the IP address of the person who submitted her photos, or been the one to test in court how far the DMCA shield extends to Moore's site. "My friends told me, 'You'd be the one who saved everybody!'" she says. Money would be one obstacle, but the unwanted attention would be another. "Then I'd be the girl sitting up there with Hunter on Anderson Cooper. And no."

Without New York City, none of this would have ever happened.

Wow, I have never seen such a horrible case of small dick syndrome. Not sure why the ugly mofo has not done the world a favour and hung himself. And yup, that is one hell of an ugly nose.
 If he accidentally falls off a cliff I know nothing, just sayin.

This article has NOTHING TO DO WITH JEWISH NEPOTISM. HE JUST HAPPENS TO BE A JEW BEING PROMOTED BY OTHER JEWS. IT"S JUST A COINCIDENCE.

This guy is very likely a Mossad operative. He hides behind his jew-promoted fake "bad boy" image. I would keep a close eye on him as he is probably involved in the next israeli false-flag attack in the US, a la the jewish "art students" who helped set up 9-11.

I am torn between wishing HIV upon this man and knowing that it won't stop him from spreading it to others. He really should be put down. And I'm a doctor. It's a public health need.

The ironic thing about this hump in the road douche is that he's completely unoriginal and lacking in a any degree of creativity. Acrewig people over and making money? Wow, he thought that up all by himself? NOT. His fears of getting whacked one day are probably well founded as he will screw over the wrong person and his inevitable fate will come to fruition. l wonder who will make money of that episode?

Just another loser who seeks his 15 minutes and got it along with 10 pages of wasted ink from the Village Voice. Way to go Village Voice! He will be forgotten by the time most hit refresh on their comps

Why would any woman want to let this sleaze anywhere near her? He comes off like he's proud to be a walking STD factory. His mother must be so proud. Jeez...

I find it really just sad above all things that people are looking up to the near exact definition of a sociopath, as a role model, he complains people need to "toughen up" when really he made a career off putting other people down and is so afraid of ever letting ANY woman in to see the little bit of good he may or may not have, that he has to put on this pathetic "im so deseperate for attention" attitude by flashing his cash and saying "oh guess what i may very well end up having someone kill themselves over my actions" but hey look at how many woman ive slept with. Things like money and meaningless sex with strangers go away and all that will be left is himself, and that is something i think he doesnt ever want to have to face. I honestly just dont think I personally could reach my thirtys and look back and see that i was responsible for destroying young girls lives and chances of ever really having a successfull CAREER ( sure you could be famous on his site with your friends for being naked but just wait till your employer does a backround check on you or even when you grow up and your kids decide to google your name, ya pictures last a lifetime) destruction ive caused in the world, no matter what amount of money i would make.

Then again what i think the real issues is deep down isnt just this mans lack of sympathy for ANYONE besides himself, but the fact that people just act out of spite and revenge not thinking "hey while im upset now, doing this could really hurt this person permentantly"

Geez are we that desperate for attention and so heartless that we have come to this, if so i honestly fear for my nieces who are 12 now as to what the hell would be coming next after Hunter moore has had his turn at "success"

If I saw him being beaten to a pulp on the street I would not call 911 but surely take a picture with my phone and post it for his fans

I want to hit him. Hard. Someone needs to sue the fuck out of him. He is a college kid buying alcohol for middle school aged children. He is the person who let's someone die because he's too lazy to call 911. Someone please post how shitty he is in bed and how small his dick is.

As much of a loser-douche as this guy may be, he has a point. Ladies need to stop doing stupid things like sexting and taking nude shots. If you are going to play the game, you have accept that you may lose.

Even though it has negative consequences, I agree with freedom of speech and this type of thing should be legal just as http://www.dirtyphonebook.com and other similar sites are legal. That being said, the way that Hunter Moore carries himself seems a bit off-putting and I think he will end up in trouble. I don't know if I'd define it as "revenge porn" though. It seems more related to the way that society has gravitated towards reality TV.

well written mate. Life is unfair, and yes, he may suck for his action but there are more horrible people than him. The hypocrisy to the highest level of anyone visiting his site and pretend they did not like is a complete idiot. His site may not live long, since internet is not always free in the United States but for the meantime let's just enjoy the misery of others.

The repugnant thing about this guy is that he trades in slut shaming. It's unfortunate that people are naive about the consequences of sharing nude photos of themselves, but that doesn't mean that they deserve to be humiliated for that action. At its core, Is Anyone Up operates on the assumption that if you're a sexual being, you should be shamed and "outed" for it. This is sex negativity of the highest order and speaks to both Hunter Moore's and our culture's sexual hang-ups.

Colombian-ginger wingman also sandwiched between two girls, Moore playfully pushes the women together so he can kiss them both at the same time. But the dancer is growing jealous, so she cradles his head possessively and coos at them both, "My baby."

@Yummyfur23 there is no shame in nudity, it's because our fucked up society puts shame on something so natural that this shit happens. If ppl would stop being embarrassed by something so natural this man's case of small dick syndrome might not have enabled him to garner such fame.
