Really, I think the given with doing this is that you have to think of the very LAST place or situation you'd want photos like this to show up, or the very last person who you'd ever want to see them.
Then you have to figure that unless you never show your face, and only have the most generic shots ever, with a body with nothing about it that's unique in some way, that could happen. No matter what you do.
Then you figure out how okay you are or aren't with that.
Really, I do think it all comes down to that. Ultimately, we can only do something so safely that isn't a safe thing pretty much by design, you know?
By all means, if you want to really reduce that risk, then you don't include your face, ever, you don't include any body part (or something like piercings, tattoos, scars, etc.) or location that can give any clue about who you are. And you don't post them anywhere that isn't very protected, like by a password, or is only shared with a lover or friend you deeply trust and have established a pattern of trust with.
Otherwise, I really think that the reality is that when we post something publicly, we've got to know it always has the possibility of getting out there and being seen by someone we probably don't want to have see it.
