Use htaccess to discourage hotlinking images. On a limited scale, I have not seen any negative impacts from hotlinked images, but then again those I saw were not hotlinked from sex sites.

If you don't know how to block hotlinking, go check out the Apache forum here and there should be some posts about how to do it (or you can ask there)

|I see no way to remove my pictures from these sites |
As mentioned by others above, use a hotlinking routine.
In this case I would serve a substitute image of the same size with an appropriate message.
One that would probably be considered inappropriate in any other circumstances.
The problem should soon go away.

Heh I've done that. Just replaced the file with a graphic that said "This image was stolen by a ----- ---------- ------ "* and left it up. Hot link was gone in 24 hours.
* no way WebmasterWorld would let me publish what I put in the graphic.

Mine's a garish green-magenta-and-black graphic that says NO HOTLINKS in huge block letters. Impossible to overlook, especially if the page has several of 'em in different sizes and shapes. So, if nothing else, it makes the offending site look bad. Heh, heh.
