Dick pics are everywhere, and nobody knows what to do about them. I think it's your dick, and how you fucking photograph it. A spate of recent papers seeks to engorge the discourse—and explore just why men are sending these nudes in the first place. According to Cory Pedersen, a psychologist and human sexuality researcher at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, about 50 percent of the dick pic senders she interviewed had no qualms sending an unsolicited photo of their genitals. The difference between the groups came down to two variables: narcissism and sexism. Men who exhibited higher levels of both tend to send nudes without asking. Still, Pedersen has also found evidence that that characterization is too simple.
When Not To Send A Dick Pic
Dick pics have never been as popular as they are today. With relatively high-quality cameras in the pockets of almost everyone these days, it's possible for people with penises to take explicit nudes and share them with recipients anywhere in the world, instantly. Oh, the wonders of modern technology! But not everyone is happy to be on the receiving end of a dick pic. Historically, dick pics haven't found favor with many women, a large portion of whom tend to find them hostile, annoying and sometimes downright disgusting.
The Art of Taking (and Sending) Naughty Pictures
W hen Leah Holroyd joined a dating site five years ago, the year-old noticed a lot of men had listed The Great Gatsby as a favourite book. Holroyd found him pleasant enough, but she was looking for a relationship rather than just friendship, and he only ever talked to her about authors. After a couple of weeks, the bibliophile said he would be visiting London where Holroyd, who builds online learning courses, was living. He suggested they swap phone numbers to make arrangements easier. Nor does this just happen through online dating. Some men have used the AirDrop function on their Apple devices — which allows users to share files with other nearby Apple devices — to send unsolicited pictures to women. Anyone, of any age, who has AirDrop turned on at its most unrestricted setting is at risk of picking up their phone to see a graphic image that was sent anonymously by someone in the same restaurant, cinema or train carriage. Laura Thompson, a researcher at City, University of London, whose work examines harassment over dating apps, says the issue has until now been trivialised. What happened in the mind of that man between talking about books, inviting a woman for coffee and a walk — and sending her a photograph of his penis? Unsurprisingly, I did not get very far by asking men in person if they had ever sent unsolicited photographs of their penis.
Hello, ladies. Allow me to address the men who have accidentally, totally coincidentally, absolutely randomly landed on this page for a second:. Seventy-six percent of women are totally into dick pics when appropriate, so this is good news for you. Also, knock it the fuck off with the emojis. That was weird, so, like, don't do that. Stand back a lil bit. Also, a little mood lighting never hurts like, bad nighttime lighting where everything looks yellow and you have to use flash But a fresh-out-of-the-shower mirror picture is always a safe bet!
