wendell, I have some bad news for you. not everyone on the internet is your friend. some are greedy capitalists who will try to ensnare you in their two-bit moneymaking schemes. frequently they will use the lure of naked women (or men, perhaps, or even animals) to accomplish this.
what you have received is a communication from one of these people. these messages, commonly known as 'spam', are not actually directed at you personally. I know this may be hard to accept, but this was not a message from an actual girl. this message was written by a computer, under the direction of a 32-year-old balding mustached geek who has not actually seen a naked girl whose image wasn't rendered in pixels, at all whatsoever, in the course of his entire life.
most likely your address was obtained by unsavory, and quite possibly illegal, methodologies. I would not rule out capitalist mercenaries breaking into your room at night and looking through your shit.
I'm sorry to be the one to tell you, but it's important that you know, and I'd rather you hear it from me.
