The mother-of-one has been awarded £28,000 in damages by the High Court from the American website that carried the pictures.
The award was made to the woman for her ordeal in being falsely portrayed as advertising sex for sale.
She sued the United States-based operators of the Adultwork site after being alerted by a friend that her pictures had appeared on it in 2011.
Alongside photographs “of a highly personal and sexual nature”, the court heard information was posted on a range of sexual services and prices.
The woman, who cannot be identified, has never been involved in prostitution. The photos were taken either by a former partner or herself and sent to others in private. No consent was given for their publication.
