A pervert who filmed sex tapes without the consent of his partners and posted private photos on "revenge porn".
Sicko Andrew Abbott, 35, has been jailed after sharing the explicit images of two ex-partners with online groups, including offers for people to meet and harass the victims.
He collated a large library of images and video clips taken when he and his girlfriends were intimate.
The footage was captured throughout the relationships with one lasting a year and the other lasting a decade.
While some of the images and videos were filmed and taken with consent, Abbott also admitted to recording private acts without permission.
The carpenter's crimes were uncovered by the women, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, when the recordings were shared online by others.
Detectives said Abbott showed a "clear intent" to cause distress to the women.
Brighton Crown Court heard that Abbott, who lived in Goring, West Sussex, but now lives in Walthamstow, east London, recorded private sex acts with one then ex-partner which he then shared in April 2019.

At the same time, he also disclosed private sexual images of a previous partner from almost a decade before.
A judge at Brighton Crown Court jailed Abbott for 16 months for three offences of disclosing private images with the intent to cause distress and one offence of voyeurism after pleading guilty at a previous hearing.
He was also given a restraining order and a sexual harm prevention order for 10 years, severely restricting his access to digital communication devices.

Abbott will also be on the sex offenders' register for 10 years.
Detective Constable Jon Berisford, of the West Sussex Community Investigation Team, said: "This case began to come to light when one of the victims saw on social media that the more recent partner had been in contact with Abbott.
"She then contacted that woman and revealed his behaviour towards herself, which caused the second woman to confront him and to end their own relationship.
"She then also looked further into social media sites and realised that images of her were being shared online without her knowledge or consent.
"Our enquiries then uncovered the further images of the first woman.
"The material was disclosed to an online message forum, rather than shared directly to people who knew the two female victims, but the intention to cause distress was so clear that Abbott had little option but to plead guilty to all four charges at Worthing Magistrates Court in April.
"The emotional impact on both of them was significant, but they were both in court to see justice done."
