Men have revealed why they like to send dick pics on dating apps.
New York’s The Cut blog offered a selection of numerous men who explained why they did it.
‘In the gay world, a dick pic is the equivalent of small talk, especially on any sort of sex app,’ Tanner, a 32-year-old in marketing, said. ‘There’s usually a hello, a few back-and-forths before showing your dick is the expected next step. At this point, dick pics aren’t exciting anymore. I don’t even try to take good ones myself because it just doesn’t matter — they’re more of a sign you’re breathing than any real barometer of whether a dude will have sex with you.‘
For Ryan, a 27-year-old cook, dick pics are the ‘ultimate sign of confidence’.
‘It’s important to let a girl know exactly how ready I would be in a situation where she would need me to be naked,’ he said.
Michael, a 39-year-old videographer, said: ‘In gay circles and/or networks and/or apps, not only is the dick pic a courtesy, many decide to skip the dick pic altogether and go for the asshole pic, a starfish selfie. Some dicks are deal-breakers while others seal the deal in a few seconds. A picture is worth a thousand words, and we are living in a world of Twitter-length messaging. Get to the point.’
Mike, a 25-year-old waiter said: ‘I like dick pics cause the camera makes your wang look bigger. Plain and simple.’
Charlie, a 33-year-old writer, says while he likes receiving dick pics he doesn’t send them himself.
‘God bless the dick pic!’ he said. ‘My very close straight girlfriend regularly sends me the photos she receives from her conquests, so I reap the rewards too. She’s become a size queen over the years, so it’s a win-win for us. But it’s for that reason that I do not share photos of my junk. Call me old-school.’
But Kevin, a 50-year-old comedian, is even more straightforward. ‘I send dick pics because — at the risk of sounding cocky (heh, heh) — I have a truly beautiful dick.’
