50 Legit Reasons For Why Men Send Dick Pictures

Ahh, the wonders of technology. We can call another country at the touch of a button, discover new planets and creatures, create beautiful works of art. So please tell me why is it that some men use the brilliant tech we have on offer to send…pictures of their dicks? Sexting someone you’re into is fine and dandy, but having an active social media presence, I can’t tell you the amount of unsolicited dick pics I’ve been sent over the years! So what’s the reason? Luckily, we’ve rounded up 50 of the male form to tell us exactly why they send their IRL aubergine emoijis into unsuspecting inboxes!

46.“Well I think partially, it’s similar to men who flash women in public parks. In terms they get off from exposing themselves but I don’t think it’s the primary reason. Maybe it is the case of a numbers game, they want a quick lay so will hope one of many women they send a pic to will respond positively?” – 32, United Kingdom


47.“The dick pic thing is beyond me! You’re more likely to get a photo of my dinner.” – 39, United States


48.“Hahaha. I have no idea. Do they do that all the time?” – 44, United Kingdom


49.“Maybe they are proud? Who knows?” – 37, United Kingdom


50.“I suspect it’s a misguided thought that somehow you seeing a picture of a penis will mean you will either 1. Not being able to resist and decide to sleep with said person or 2. In the hope of getting a nude back…” – 29, United Kingdom


Wow, the insight! I’m actually struck with the amount of guys who said they have never or would never send one – are you sure!? There’s some brilliant psychology in these answers, such as the guy who said that some men project the fantasy onto the woman – they send a nude in the hopes of receiving one back. I’m not sure how many women that’s actually worked on, but good theory. I personally believe that some (not all!) men are led by their dicks, so sending an image in the hopes of skipping the small talk is what they think is their best bet. They’re just shooting their shot, right? Hmm…well, maybe not. Perhaps they should take some advice from some of our other men up above who hold off on sending those dick pics!
