Italian woman commits suicide over sex video

An Italian woman killed herself after sending a taunting video of her having sex with a new man to her ex-boyfriend – before the footage went viral on the internet.

Tiziana Cantone, from Naples in Italy, was filmed performing a sex act on a man and the video was uploaded on to the internet before being widely shared.

There are claims in Italy that she had sent the video to her former lover to taunt him. But the explicit footage appeared online in 2015 and she faced months of abuse and mocking.

According to close friends and relatives, the 31-year-old was deeply depressed and on the brink of suicide for months prior to her death. Italy has reacted to Tiziana’s suicide with a mixture of shock and shame. Her death has provoked a debate about the corrosive effects of the public shaming of young women.
