Kinda NSFW: Do you think sending someone pictures of your junk ever works?

Asked by Imadethisupwithnoforethought (14334 points ) May 7th, 2012

I keep reading about men getting in trouble for sending pictures of their junk to women they hardly know.

At first I thought they were idiots, but maybe I am misjudging. I mean, it seems a lot of men are doing it, and doing it repeatedly.

Am I ignoring a powerful tool of seduction? Should I be doing this more often?

Only if the recipients are as equally fucked up as the sender. Depends on what are you hoping to attract, a solid relationship or a sleazy hook up.

I doubt if it works with women you don’t know very well, but it seems to me it would be a different story with someone who is already quite interested in… uh… your “junk,” as you so delightfully put it.

Maybe that’s your problem. You think of it as junk. I can assure you that I am not the only one who thinks quite the opposite about my cock.

It does work. I know two women who look forward to receiving emailed photos of their male acquaintances’ dick shots. There are times it doesn’t. Another woman I know says it’s useless since she can’t blow it if she decides to be spontaneous. Right that moment. Makes sense doesn’t it-?

Not related but personally, the photo of a woman’s vagina wouldn’t do it for me. A side boob shot or a butt shot along with that sensuously sloping curvature of the waist shot would.

Well you know what “they” say…water seeks it’s own level. lololol

wundayatta's avatar

So, @Coloma, you’re saying you want some guy to… uh… make water for you? Kind of like “On Golden Pond” only instead of “pond” we would substitute “showers?” lolololololol

Seems to me a picture would be preferable. Unless you like doing laundry.

@wundayatta Heh..shout it out! lol

I’m wondering about the “more often”.......

Apparently, it does work for some people. My neighbor hooked up with a woman a couple of towns owner after he took nude pics of himself, including close-ups, and posted them on some website. After he came back from visiting her, his wife found a map in his truck along with a phone number. She called the number and had a long chat with this woman.

The woman said that the husband had told her he wasn’t married, and gave the wife the name of the website. The wife not only located the site, but she found the original images and printed them out. I found out about all of this when she brought them over to my house to hold for safe keeping. It was a mess.

Anyway, the point is…it obviously can work in some cases. To what degree, I have no idea. Personally, I would end all communication with an internet friend who sent me a nude photo.

If a man needs to market himself like a prize bull, what kind of woman does he expect will be attracted by such a gesture. Get to know each other and then take naughty photos of each other if it pleases you.

It just seems so trashy and it seems like it appeals to the lowest common denominator (no offense to junk-sexting lovers).

mazingerz88's avatar

@DominicX Are you calling my Mom a cheap whore? Lol.

It wouldn’t work on me. I’d much rather see your great legs, chest, or arms, and I’d most like to see your face. I have no desire to look at pictures of penises. They really aren’t that attractive, you know? ;)

ragingloli's avatar

Not on me. I usually respond with “Haha! Mine is bigger!”

ucme's avatar

I can’t comprehend how any image of household waste/garbage would hold any appeal to anyone, other than maybe refuse collectors.

LuckyGuy's avatar

@ucme It works on me! I swoon when I see a picture of a junk free garage.

ucme's avatar

@LuckyGuy Well now that’s a different story, junk free is the only way to go.

You just haven’t seen the righ…nevermind.

I think just about anything can be turned into a fetish. If shoes can be a turn-on, why not a penis, which is actually supposed to be used for sex?

I think there is probably a lot of shame around the notion that someone would find a penis to be sexy. After all, conventional wisdom says the relationship is about the person, not the parts. It’s supposed to be a male thing to get into boobs and pussies and asses. Women are supposed to be above or beyond that, and if they are into parts, it’s female parts, anyway. The poor male member languishes, except for men who are size fetishists.

The other shameful thing is to be in love with your own penis. It’s so narcissistic. And yet men play with themselves and grow hard and feel powerful and horny and associate that with their penis.

I think that sending a picture of a penis is an attempt to share how good you feel about your penis and to share the pleasure you feel when you have sex. It’s a problem, of course, because the picture doesn’t convey that very well. It’s the same problem as all of porn. How do you convey an interior feeling pleasure? The answer? The “money shot.”

I wonder whether men would send pictures of their penises ejaculating if they could. That probably sounds gross and disgusting, but I suspect that is the feeling that men really want to convey: let’s have ecstasy together.

I doubt if many women would admit to it, but there are probably some who really do enjoy the pictures. Maybe it’s because it is their boyfriend’s penis. They are probably not interested in random penises, except for a few women who are very visual in a way similar to a lot of men. But I don’t think there are many women out there who like random penises. I think that if they do like penis pictures, it is because it is the penis of someone who is very special to them. That penis is beautiful, not because it is a penis—most penises share a lot of similarities—but because it is the penis of the man they love.

As a wooing gesture, I have to wonder though. You’d think that if it didn’t work, men wouldn’t do it. But so many guys do it, it seems like some must be having success. Maybe there are size queens out there.

LuckyGuy's avatar

Is this any different than high school girls taking pictures of their boobs and sending them to boy classmates?
Well, now that I think about, it., yes, there is a difference. Most likely the girls are committing a felony since in most states it’s a felony to send porn to anyone below the age of consent.

I like women with some class, so I’m going to say it doesn’t work. Lol.

Whoa! @Blackberry! Since when are we so hoity-toity?

I don’t know if you meant that last sentence to be a play on words, but there may be truth in it no matter which way it is read. Several of my male friends who are gay do like penis photos.

Blackberry's avatar

@wundayatta Unless we’re talking about an actual couple that’s having some fun, I just don’t see how me sending a picture of my junk will do anything except disgust a new prospect. If she didn’t ask for it, it’s not different than exposing yourself to her in the car on a first date lol.

wundayatta's avatar

Well duh! Everyone knows you don’t expose yourself until the second date!

Blackberry's avatar

@wundayatta Exactly. You have get inside their barrier first; gain their trust. Lol.

Coloma's avatar

Yeah, I’d much prefer to get a feel pun intended for the girth of a guys gray matter before the Jackass wants to play Donkey Kong.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

It depends of what reaction you want to “work”. Sexting between already interested people is sometimes fun, amusing and also titillating. As a female though, I can say receiving un solicited mystery text of male tinkie winkies doesn’t do much of anything except get my creep vibe going.

Wasn’t there some research done sometime by somebody that determined females somewhere are less sexually aroused by disembodied genitals than males?

wundayatta's avatar

I think guys are probably more interested in getting pictures of the body parts of interest (bpoi) from their paramours than they are of sending them out. But sometimes reciprocity seems to have a way of getting the desired outcome. I wonder if women who have sent photos are more interested in receiving their guys’ photos then those who have not yet had such an intimate photo exchange. I hope that makes sense. For the record, I bet that women who have sent their photos are more interested in seeing bpoi photos from the guys they are emailing. Or texting.

Maybe this works in places in which such things are applicable, like Montréal Amateur, where you post naughty pics and videos of yourself, and meet other people who do the same. There are places for this kind of stuff. Unless I’m getting serious with someone that I’ve known for a while, I don’t want random dudes sending me pics of their shlongs, and contrary to popular belief, I’m pretty sure that a lot wouldn’t appreciate me sending pics of my snatch outta nowhere. Does it work? Most likely depends on where and in what situation. :/

I was wondering, since summer is so short in Montreal, do they all make hay while the sun shines?

Symbeline's avatar

But I don’t get it. Make hay? Whu?
