Confused explicit photos and video of ourselves while we were together

I was wondering if there is anything I can do about this...

I broke up with my ex a few months ago...and we weren't talking for a while because we were both pretty angry...we started talking again recently, and I had forgotten to ask him about this, but I had sent him explicit photos of myself and we had also made an explicit video of ourselves while we were together...I asked him if he would get rid of any file he has or any copy he has, and he said that because he was given them / he filmed us with consent, that it is his property and he is able to do whatever he wants with them as long as he isn't displaying them publicly, or selling them...he then said that he'd get rid of them if I payed for the disc...I wasn't clear about what he meant, so I asked him how much a disc would cost...thinking it'd be the cost of the blank dvd...and he said, "how much are the files worth to you?"...

I would just like to know if there is anything I can do about the photos? Or is there anything I can do at all about the situation? I'm from Ontario, Canada, so I would need advice for this region...

Thank you!

He can be charged with a crime if he posts that publicly;

You people on here without any legal experience make me laugh.

Firstly, he would actually have to display them on a website, etc. Also there would have to be sufficiently convincing evidence that he himself did the posting.

Secondly, do you have any linked proof/logs/emails from him that specifically states "how much it is worth to you?" (though hopefully he was more explicit about blackmail than just that line) Play along with and log the chats. Then, if you feel like it, take that information and pursue criminal charges (though I think this is a misdemeanor...)

Pissing off your ex in this situation is a bad idea if you don't want the pictures to be released. Be sure you know what you're doing. It's very possible one of his friends might "find it" or something, or he claims that's what happened. Make sure you have at least some hard evidence of blackmail or his intentions to post them before you start upsetting him directly.

Without that evidence he can easily post them without any legal recourse on your part (at least none that's any success).
