Yes, men are different: dick pick edition

Single woman turns the tables on men and sends potential dates unsolicited pictures of her vagina – and is horrified when almost all respond with crude enthusiasm
Kerry Quinn, from Los Angeles, has received many unsolicited pictures of male genitalia while using dating apps
The 27-year-old decided to send a picture of a vagina she found on the internet to unsuspecting guys on the dating app Bumble
Of the 40 she sent it to, three didn’t reply – and the other 37 all wanted to meet her

How anyone can reach the age of 27 without realising that men o tend to take these things a little differently……

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    So sweet. I am rarely sorry I missed the internet revolution in dating. I guess sending people pictures of your penis works or they would not do it, however I have to say I am unconvinced of the quality of the young ladies one might meet.

    Anyway, who let this popular beat combo into the building?

    I do like it when theory meets reality. What we call patriarchal sexism evolved in the West in such a way to protect women from the real world and its consequences. Perhaps we took that a little far? Oh well. The traditional gentleman is dead. This is the world we have. She better get used to the sort of young man who is looking for a partner who sends him a picture of her c*nt.

  2. This bit was hilarious, like it was written by an alien sociologist from the planet Gynos:

    Though many women feel that similar treatment from men constitutes sexual harassment, the men perhaps desensitized by the increasingly prevalence of online pornography, seemed unfazed.

    Yes, love. That’ll be it.

    Curse you, PointyElbowedSluts.com!

    Not only did they not freak out as Kerry expected, but many sent long, detailed replies explaining just what they would like to do to the vagina in the photo.

    BTW, don’t even bother reading the Mail story – they don’t show you the vagina. It’s all blurred out.

    Meanwhile, this guy was trying too hard:

    A man named Andrew told her quite simply that the ‘lighting is a little off’

    You don’t need/want to game a girl who sends you unsolicited pics of her fanjita, Andrew.

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    Steve – “You don’t need/want to game a girl who sends you unsolicited pics of her fanjita, Andrew.”

    Well maybe I am wrong and the English gentleman is not dead. After all, if a girl sends you such a picture, what are you supposed to say? The majority of men clearly did the obvious – there is not much more negotiation at this point. It is time to move on to other things.

    But if you want to be gentlemanly, what else can you do but comment on the photo’s composition? Perhaps you could try “That’s nice, do you work out?”

  4. So Much For Subtlety

    In passing, this is a nice example of female delusion:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-3328024/PLATELL-S-PEOPLE-s-not-just-Adele-Big-girls-unsung-stars.html

    Apart from being crass, sexist and offensive, Mr Noakes was also making a stupendously bad business decision. For has he not noticed that the larger lady is in the ascendancy in all walks of life?

    Adele would be gorgeous if she was a bit thinner. So she makes her millions ….. and what does she do? She does not celebrate her fuller figure, that is for sure.

    She hires a Personal Trainer and loses the weight of a small township. By and large fat people do not want to be fat because they know they look ugly.

  5. “I appreciate that this is probably horrendously politically incorrect but that is a stunning picture!!! You definitely win the prize for the best Bumble picture I have ever seen.”

  6. Astonished she’s surprised at this: in another context it’d be like walking into a boxing club, punching a bunch of random people and writing an op e piece for the Guardian at your disgust at the levels of violence threatened or observed as a result of your ‘experiment’.

    The only thing we’ve learned here is that sex-seeking men respond in kind to a sexually aggressive approach.

    Oh, and she’s a bit dim.

  7. GlenDorran wins this round…

    Yes. Flawless victory.

    But if you want to be gentlemanly, what else can you do but comment on the photo’s composition? Perhaps you could try “That’s nice, do you work out?”

    You could try the old “Wow. Are you a model?” line.

  8. A girl I knew put this well. She said “If a girl sends a guy a picture of herself naked, he’ll get excited. If a guy sends a girl a picture of himself naked, she’ll start giggling.”

  9. SMFS nails it. This wasn’t a problem until around the 80s when certain changes happened. Virgin marriage was still quite common in the 1970s. Then along comes modern feminism and stamps all over the institutions and “we’re equal” becomes the mantra and how dare you ever question that, even with data.

    And parents really need to pick up the ball. Schools teach the mechanics of sex, but no-one teaches girls about what boys are like, or vice versa.

  10. It’s even less connected to reality than you think. Women — the ones who aren’t stupid, or under the influence (of feminist theory, that is) — send guys nudie or topless pictures of themselves all the time these days.

    I know a very eligible guy who was single a few years ago, and he was positively deluged with them. Needless to say, he did not send any ladies pictures of his willy.

  11. What do you suppose would happen to any of the men that said “Maybe this is a little politically incorrect, but, wow, that is a truly stunning photo!”

  12. TheStigler

    “And parents really need to pick up the ball. Schools teach the mechanics of sex, but no-one teaches girls about what boys are like, or vice versa.”

    In part because it would be sexist or stereotyping to do so.

    Girls usually tell other girls, even if teachers or parents don’t. I can’t believe many girls (or ladies, rather) can reach this age without realising something about the drives of the average member (ahem) of the male sex.

  13. One of the first things I told my daughters when they started dating was that while it was easy to turn a young man on it was very difficult to turn them off again.

  14. You know, after Little Missy received her first penis picture, she probably should have reconsidered whether Bumble was the right place to be searching for True Love.

    There aren’t many reasons to live in Ohio, but one of the best is that it keeps one far away from the sort of people who live in L.A. People like Kerry Quinn.

  15. I was going to add: we can congratulate ourselves there”s no male equivalent.
    Then remembered helmet cams.
    Often to be found on pricks wearing Lycra.

  16. So Much For Subtlety

    JuliaM – “They just went for a kebab.”

    Well I hope they were careful. They could get a nasty burn.

    Mr Womby – “One of the first things I told my daughters when they started dating was that while it was easy to turn a young man on it was very difficult to turn them off again.”

    I don’t know. Start talking about wedding dresses. I would bet that would work.

    This is not about sexual arousal in the male. It is about the fact that sperm is cheap while eggs are expensive. Well pregnancy is expensive. So women will sift the gene pool for the highest quality DNA she can find. Men, in their natural state, unencumbered by guilt, will f**k anything that moves. Quite a few things that don’t too.

    bloke in spain – “I was going to add: we can congratulate ourselves there”s no male equivalent.”

    The male equivalent of what? The Dick Pic? These are all just subliminated versions of the dick pic. A man’s car, his shooting trophy, his lycra shorts. They all exist for the same purpose. Well, not so sure about the lycra.

    The male equivalent of the woman who is disgusted by men being too clear about what they want would be the woman who goes right into talking about the wedding. That would make for a fun first date. Or worse, names of their first three children.

  17. BiS

    The reviews of that product are beyond parody:

    “I read about this and was very curious. I’ve always wanted to see what happens inside, especially when I orgasm.It was a bit tricky to begin with because, of course, the secretions cloud the camera and it’s then difficult to make anything out clearly. So I thought of getting a clear plastic speculum, which then worked perfectly. What a revelation for me, and for my lover.The question I have is, can this work with Yahoo messenger so that we can use it together when physically apart. Having read the spec on here, I suspect it cannot, but can be integrated with Apple Face Time – assuming you;re both using a Mac or iPhone. If anyone knows and can tell me how to do this, it would be great. Otherwise, it is an amazing and great product, with a truly luxurious feel.”

  18. SMFS,

    “The male equivalent of what? The Dick Pic? These are all just subliminated versions of the dick pic. A man’s car, his shooting trophy, his lycra shorts. They all exist for the same purpose.”

    The reason that porn isn’t a big thing for women is that the biggest turn-on for women is means. Consider every bit of romantic fiction – the fantasy involves a prince, a banker, the ship’s captain. Even when a character appears to be poor, it turns out that he’s rich somewhere in the story. 50 Shades of Grey isn’t just about a woman who gets involved with a good looking, kinky man. He’s a rich, good looking, kinky man. You could lose the kinky part. You couldn’t lose the rich part.

  19. You’re wrong, Mr Stig. Women’s turn-on is dominance. It’s just writers of trashy novels who couple means with dominance, because women aren’t comfortable with the notion it’s only the dominance they’re really after.
    Even a chartered accountant has allure if he’s cracking a whip.

  20. “Even a chartered accountant has allure if he’s cracking a whip.”

    As chartered accountants and whips are not the most obvious of combinations, even I would venture to guess in Downham Market, aren’t you in fact demonstrating the case for means…

  21. @PF
    You’re neglecting the binary nature of dominance. Women who are not subdued & dominated will seek to subdue & dominate.
    No doubt Downham Market sees a nightly rogering with the 12″ strap-on. Accompanied by whelps & supplications.
    Could explain a lot.

  22. That is so binarist…

    “No doubt Downham Market sees…”

    I’ve driven through small towns / communities like that – it’s usually best not to stop.
