It happened, finally… although this is not a proud moment or something I’d boast about, not an achievement that I’m proud of… someone has finally sent me a Dick Pic! I’ve gone this long on the internet without having been sent one before until last night (THAT, I am proud of). I should be grateful that the gent actually asked before sending it over, despite me saying no!
I guess I happened to catch him as he was re-evaluating some pictures of me (from Tinder, not that I’d personally sent him). It went something like this;
8:32:12 PM RA – hi
RA – looking at your pics haha
Me – UH oh…
RA – those curves are so perfect for me
RA – pics dont normally turn me on either haha
RA – kinda weird
Me: – I’m sorry?
RA – wanna see what you made?
Me – Honestly, no I think I’ll pass.
RA – its just a pic
RA – just wanna share the warm feelings in some way
Me – It’s really ok.
RA – cmon
RA – like i said this is rare
RA – i’ll put a tie on to keep it classy
A few minutes later….
RA – Sent
An hour later (I was on the phone with my brother so I hadn’t seen his response)
Me – DUDE, not cool.
It should be noted that I left the text just as he’d written it, and this irks me. I know that my writing and grammar are not perfect, but I make an effort to at least try to figure it out so that everything makes sense. The fact that most people seem not to care “because it’s the internet, relax” really ticks me off. How do you really know who you’re talking to, or what they may offer you down the line?! If all I have to go by is written word then I want that person to think that I’m at least a LITTLE bit intelligent, even if what I’m SAYING isn’t. (^_~)
It should also be noted that I’m not dumb… I’m aware that SOME people browse the internet and do the unmentionable while looking at pictures. And honestly, in different context I would have found it flattering. I mean, who wouldn’t want to know that another person finds them attractive? Just… don’t tell me about it when we don’t have any kind of real relationship. I’m not going to tell a new friend about the sex dream I had about him/her unless I know that we’re both comfortable with it. If I know you well enough, sure you bet that you’ll be hearing about the sex dream I had about you. Mostly because any time I do have a sex dream about a friend it’s really bizarre. We’ll laugh about it and then move on with our lives. No harm done!
Anyway, so he sent it. I said no, I didn’t tip toe around saying no, I literally said NO. And yet there it was in my inbox… I didn’t open the picture but I could see a small preview (thanks gmail!) and he had indeed put a tie on. I thought that was funny and found myself laughing at that, but could not believe he’d actually taken the time to take a picture and send it to me… on the plus side at least he wasn’t small, by any means but that is besides point. WHO DOES THAT? AND HOW IS THAT OK!? My friends and I always make jokes about Dick pics… but again, I’ve never personally received one (except once, but that was definitely under specific circumstances).
I cringe at the thought that this could happen again, I’m not a prude or anything (obviously) I just don’t feel comfortable with the idea of pictures being exchanged. The human body (male included) is an amazing thing to look at, but I’d rather do it in person vs in a picture. Pictures don’t do things justice…
So dudes (and ladies)… 1) ASK before you send over any nudie pictures and 2) If the recipient says NO, then s/he means no. If you want to show you privates that badly then ask him/her out and maybe you’ll get to whip it out like a normal person.
