A guide on how to take ‘creep shots’ of women is currently being sold on Amazon.
The book, which is available on Amazon Kindle devices for £1.45, consists of eight pages and contains advice on what to do “before, during and after you take creep shots”.
Called ‘How To Take Creepshots: The Basics’, the e-book was published by Lorenzo Giovanni who brazenly states: “You can comfortably practice it without going to jail because it is LEGAL.”
The author goes on to explain how he thinks creep shooting is a “healthy hobby” and reveals he got into it when he was 12 years old.
“I met my cousin’s friend Vanessa when I was 12 years old. Vanessa had soft pale skin, a sexy curvy body, and a small juicy booty.
“I would watch her from my window with a Sony DCR-DVD108 Handy Camcorder and took dozens of pictures of her bending over, and reaching up to pull down branches, and her shirt would rise up and expose her tummy,” he wrote.
The book, which one Amazon reviewer has called ‘disraceful’, describes creep shooting as an “art form”.
Its product description reads: “Have you been interested in taking pictures or videos of those sexy young women you see at the mall?
What is upskirting?
The cruel and invasive craze involves perpetrators using cameras to take images or video up victims’ clothing without their consent to see their genitals or underwear.
While the vast majority of known cases involve men targeting women, the roles sometimes can be reversed.
The first available data on the prevalence of upskirting showed victims as young as 10 complaining to police.
Currently, there is no specific law in place banning the practice.
