When Ryan Jon decided to ask young men about the psychology behind their dick pics, he didn’t expect to unearth an entirely new trend.
But after speaking to a number of young Australian males, he picked up on one common theme: they’re not sending pictures of their genitals to girls, they’re sending them to other guys.
In a column for news.com.au, Jon quotes one young man as saying, “If you don’t send dick pics to your boys, they’re not your boys.”
It seems men are now acutely aware that when they send a dick pic to ‘impress’ a woman, they run the risk of being called out for their confronting behaviour. There are multiple examples online of men being mocked or shamed in response to their unwanted pictures.
My favourite hobby is searching for men who send me disgusting DMs online and replying with pics of their female family members and wives.????????
