Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 12:46:55

Inspired by another thread. If you met someone in rl or online and they sent you a photo of their penis, would you think that was hot? Or even acceptable?

I would never ever ever get involved with someone that sent me willy pics.

Am I just old? Is this what people do now?

Dear God almighty no.

Not hot
Not acceptable

And if that is because I am old, then I am glad to be old

Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 12:48:50


God no.

Penis' are ugly things.

I think it is truely vile and if that makes me old so be it.

One of the dads up at school send my friend a picture of his penis......she showed it to me....every time I see him now I just see a penis on legs - not a nice vision smile

bobbywash Fri 21-Jun-13 12:49:47

All the rage with the yoof, topless shots from the girls too (so I've read)

NeverBeenToMe Fri 21-Jun-13 12:49:52

I have instructed my teenage daughters that if they ever receive such a photo, they should reply "Ah, that looks just like a penis, only smaller" smile

smoothieooo Fri 21-Jun-13 12:50:01

I was, until recently, on a couple of dating websites and it's amazing how common it is to be emailed pics of willies in various states of arousal. Apparently...

I never received one though - not sure whether to be envy or not!!

TabithaStephens Fri 21-Jun-13 12:50:15

I would think it was very strange. Maybe you can excuse teenage boys for not knowing any better but certainly not grown men.

drfayray Fri 21-Jun-13 12:50:40

I have been the lucky hmm recipient of such knob pix.

I came over vair Queen Victoria. NOT AMUSED!

Deleted owners of said knobs immediately.

Guys, really...knobs are not pretty. Please stop sending pix of knobs...

FreudiansSlipper Fri 21-Jun-13 12:50:42

yes i have someone i dated a few times and up until then i liked him

i told him i thought it was immature and stupid and not to contact me again he did (sorry nice texts) i ignored him

Someone from a dating site sent me a dick pic once. Completely unbidden at 7 o'clock in the morning whilst I was preparing my children's breakfast. Not only did it not make me feel sexy, I was so shocked, I burst into tears.
Not cool.

If men were attractive naked then i would say, each to his own.

I don't know why you want to spend any time looking at that bit, but i suppose the act of sending a picture, in itself, and them being turned on by it, could be sexy.

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 12:50:57

Jesus, what thread is this haha.

If it was part of a v. flirty back and forth with someone I wanted to recieve dirty pics off, then yes.

If it was a random photo from someone I'd just met/had no interest in then no.

smoothieooo Fri 21-Jun-13 12:51:32

I particularly liked the "That reminds me, I must buy chipolatas for tea" comeback!

ALso....I am on Kik messenger and I have had vast amounts of penis photos sent to me.

ewww! just why? why would anyone do that?

<baffled> confused

AllYoursBabooshka Fri 21-Jun-13 12:52:12

My ex once sent me a picture of his penis with a little flag poking out of it.

He thought it was very clever but said it was painful. I told him not to stick things in his willy.

Did I mention he is my ex?

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 12:52:33

Yes, unsolicited penises are a no no.

Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 12:52:53

Do you think the senders think, well, I like pics of tits and fannies so they must want to see my magic wand?

MarilynMoanroe Fri 21-Jun-13 12:53:08

Not for me thanks. I can get by without the need for random pictures of men's "giblets".

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 12:53:12

Do none of you send dirty texts/pictures? <curious>

musicposy Fri 21-Jun-13 12:53:36


That's all.

Nobody has ever sent me one of these, thank goodness. Looking at DH's once a month is quite enough. <prudish face>

NeverBeenToMe I love your response and must tell that to my teen DDs! grin

Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 12:53:41

what is kik messenger?? Is it a willy pic thing?

(so much to learn)

Signet2012 Fri 21-Jun-13 12:53:47

I had a random penis sent to me once.

I told my dad about this penis picture from an unknown number in conversation and he asked me if I recognised it.

No dad..... I don't tend to keep mental images of penises I encounter.

Then he told me he meant the number blush

Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 12:54:15

stuntgirl - certainly not


I never send nor receive dirty pictures. I really wouldn't want a penis photo. Ever.

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 12:54:41

Arf signet grin

FreudiansSlipper Fri 21-Jun-13 12:55:04

yes i do think that Hully

yes i have sent a sexual text when i am in a relationship but photos no i am not a porn star or have the desire to act like one and back off quickly i someone is wanting this from me

juneybean Fri 21-Jun-13 12:55:20

It's not just men... I've had women send unsolicited naked pictures. What happened to building the romance hmm

Maryz Fri 21-Jun-13 12:55:27

That thread was bollock. Or posted by a 14 year old boy.

<mutters in an old-gimmerish fashion>

I honestly cannot think of a single circumstance under which I'd want to receive a penis photo.

Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 12:56:25

I know arbitrary, me neither

<waves to Mary>

ParadiseChick Fri 21-Jun-13 12:57:31

Well there's a time and a place is say!

HighInterestRat Fri 21-Jun-13 12:57:47

My DH and I send pictures back and forth sometimes. I like seeing pictures of his, a random man I was chatting to, probably not. grin

"Do none of you send dirty texts/pictures"

Women are beautiful, though, men are ridiculous, fully naked.

FreudiansSlipper Fri 21-Jun-13 12:58:10

Signet grin

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 12:58:48

Gawd my PC was full of blurry, pixellated penis photos from shity webcams when I was a teenager grin

AllYoursBabooshka Fri 21-Jun-13 12:59:04

WHAT IF... Your DH was in another country, was worried that something was wrong with his penis and wanted your opinion before going to the doctor?

Like if it turned orange or something?

OnTheNingNangNong Fri 21-Jun-13 12:59:45

I've been sent some rather naice pictures of abs. Much nicer than an ugly penis.

Maryz Fri 21-Jun-13 13:00:06

It's common in schools apparently [baffled]

In a case I know, 14 year old girl sent 14 year old boy (unsolicited) pictures of herself wearing only a see-through thong. 14 year old boy responded with willy picture.

Parents of girl went apeshit. Boy was suspended. Girl was sent to counselling, but not punished.

Obviously willy pictures cause PTSD. Naked women pictures don't.

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 13:00:08

Oof, I dunno birds. My partner is a thing of fucking beauty always when he's naked.

musicposy Fri 21-Jun-13 13:01:02

Have told the teen DDs that if I ever catch them sending naked pictures of any body part more daring than their hands or feet they will be banned from facebook/ the internet for life. And I mean it grin. I must also talk to them about receiving such lovely stuff too!

Having said that, I don't really monitor what my 17 yo does any more except keep the lines of communication open. My 13 yo, though, is a different matter and probably just about the age they start receiving willy pics.

Thanks for the dicks up thumbs up. I am woefully out of date.

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 13:01:05

babooshka grin

Maryz Fri 21-Jun-13 13:01:11

Babooshka, I'd be more interested in knowing what he was doing with it than concerned about it's colour grin

absentmindeddooooodles Fri 21-Jun-13 13:01:27

No joke, I had someone give me a flip book of photos of his willy. He said it was so I could amuse myself while he went off on a college trip. Needless to say I pinned it to the departments notice board :-D and for the record never called him again!

Hully - Kik is a message service, a bit like whatsapp. I went on there so I could swap photos with DS and it doesn't cost say like a text picture message does. I didn't know any random wierdo could message you though - made DS come off it once the penis photos started appearing!!

LackaDAISYcal Fri 21-Jun-13 13:01:46

grin @ signet

gringrin @ "like a penis, only smaller"

on a similar vein, I have had a couple of FB requests from colleagues at work. Both are very, very young compared my old 40something ancientness, but perfectly nice, normal intelligent young women, but their fb pics all involve a full on pout in various provocative poses. Is this how the young behave these days? Why the need for all the pouting and posturing?

OHforDUCKScake Fri 21-Jun-13 13:02:11

No no no and no.

I wouldnt want a photo of someone I was in love withs schlong.

I definitely wouldnt want one from someone Id just met/was dating.

Similarly, I wouldnt send them a photo of my vulva.

Portofino Fri 21-Jun-13 13:03:36

Getting a pic of a sick willy would be more horrid than a not sick one.

AllYoursBabooshka Fri 21-Jun-13 13:04:03

Eating wotsits and scratching himself would be my first thought.

I would probably want to see.

StyleManual Fri 21-Jun-13 13:05:47

OHforDUCKScake - I don't think a photo of your Volvo is as bad a as a willy picture. There's no need to be ashamed of your choice of car.

piprabbit Fri 21-Jun-13 13:06:21

Do they send pics of their own willies, or someone else's bigger/better willy?

PostBellumBugsy Fri 21-Jun-13 13:06:55

Like I said on the other thread, about which this thread is about - if you go online dating for casual relationships, you will most likely end up with a collection of nob shots. I do not why or when men became such enthusiastic senders of their nobs - but they seem to have done.

I am a very respectable, naice, mummy of two & I have a collection of nob shots on my phone & even two cum videos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They do not enthrall me in any way at all - other than for entertainment value when I show them to my girlfriends - (yes, they are all unidentifiable, I'm not a complete bitch).

They are invariably accompanied by the request to show them my tits or even my foof - which the answer from me is always "no"! because I don't want to end up even as an anonymous pair of tits passed around the pub one evening for someone's mates to pass comment on

IgnatiusSprat Fri 21-Jun-13 13:08:12

If they sent you a big of a bigger/better willy, could you sue them for false advertising after you've seen the real thing?

<regards empty coffers; ponders>

IgnatiusSprat Fri 21-Jun-13 13:09:20

What is a cum video fgs?! Is that, like, what it sounds like? A video of them ejaculating?? WHY FOR GOD'S SAKE? And why are they still on your phone????? envy <<< This is not envy. This is boak face

pigglepaggle Fri 21-Jun-13 13:10:22

I've a friend who's using an online dating site and she's had a few photos of men's 'little soldiers' some of them stood at attention.
I personally think it's gross.

piprabbit Fri 21-Jun-13 13:10:29

I guess you might end up traumatised due to extreme disappointment, or possibly injured as a result of uncontrolled laughing.

Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 13:11:33


Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 21-Jun-13 13:12:29

I am genuinely astonished that this is a thing!

I would roar with laughter if DH sent me a picture of his knob grin Why would I need a photo? I can look at it whenever I want to!

I really hope this silly craze has gone away before my boys are old enough to want to participate. I will be having a bloody stern word if it hasn't.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 21-Jun-13 13:13:15

OMG - a cum video?!


Kikithecat Fri 21-Jun-13 13:15:17

Penises are for feeling, not seeing. Bleugh.

Maryz Fri 21-Jun-13 13:17:23

Do they photograph them beside incorrectly calibrated rulers?

PostBellumBugsy Fri 21-Jun-13 13:18:11

What else would a cum video be of, if not for them cumming? The two I have are spectacularly awful and only kept for their shock / entertainment value for all my equally naice married friends who can't quite believe this sort of thing happens! grin

Back2Two Fri 21-Jun-13 13:20:19

Just eeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwww!

LeGavrOrf Fri 21-Jun-13 13:21:07


LackaDAISYcal Fri 21-Jun-13 13:23:53

cum videos shock

Oh my giddy aunt!

<reaches for the smelling salts>

AllYoursBabooshka Fri 21-Jun-13 13:24:57

Oh dear.

What sort of angle set up would they use for that? I mean, are they holding the phone while filming? That could be quite hard difficult...

Actually nevermind.

I had a work colleague send me a video clip of him masturbating (completely unprovoked btw) at sparrow-fart one morning; my dd answered my phone, screamed and threw the phone across the room.

I was a total bitch about it and re-sent it back to his wife with a nice little text.

I don't understand the penis pics things - almost half the bloody population of the planet has one, what's so special about your?? hmm


tungthai Fri 21-Jun-13 13:28:31

It's really strange not erotic in the slightest.

My 15 year old niece got caught out when a naked picture she sent to an ex boyfriend did the rounds at school. I don't if it was bravado but she wasn't in the slightest bit bothered and said she had seen naked pictures of most of the girls and boys in her year. sad

PostBellumBugsy Fri 21-Jun-13 13:28:32

They volunteer to send them too - I have never once asked or even hinted I want to see their brain penis. wink

I'm also not sure I see the attraction of a foof shot, but it is often requested. I guess there must be women out there obliging?

musicposy Fri 21-Jun-13 13:29:15

Tapirbackrider well done!

StuntGirl Fri 21-Jun-13 13:32:22

My partner went away for a week a while ago, he got a few pictures of me in various states of undress grin Gawd I hope he wasn't traumatised by them!

I also send pictures, but i don't want any back. It is nice to think of your partner getting turned by you.

Hassled Fri 21-Jun-13 13:35:12

Bloody hell MN is an education sometimes, isn't it? Sometimes I'm glad I'm old.

Snippet in the paper this morning about a man dressed as a penis who was assaulted by an outraged passerby. He was rescued by a woman ................. Dressed as a vagina.

I think I live in a parallel universe. confused

Stunt Depends if you sent him a Cock Shot or not grin

Seriously though I have sent pictures while in a relationship but I haven't randomly thought 'oh Dave would love a pic of my fanjo' and sent one but seems penis owners sometimes think 'oh NotSP obviously loves cock shots so heres mine'

They are ugly things though. Send me a picture of vodka and chocolate and I'm yours. No need for the cock


PostBellumBugsy Fri 21-Jun-13 13:36:58

Hassled - I am old (mid 40s) and none of the guys sending nobs are spring chickens. All been mid 30s & over.

Hassled Fri 21-Jun-13 13:37:29

How do you dress as a vagina? just vagina or are we talking vulval bits too? And why has no-one ever suggested that in the " I need fancy dress ideas" threads?

Maryz Fri 21-Jun-13 13:37:47

How do you dress as a vagina [baffled]?

I can understand dressing as a penis, but a vagina is inside so isn't really visible in a dressing-up type of way.

<confuses self>

A photo of a cake would do more for me!

EarthMither Fri 21-Jun-13 13:41:32

Bleugh - no thanks to knob pix. I'm put in mind of the bit in The Bell Jar when Buddy strips down to his nylon fishnet y-fronts, prompting Sylvia Plath to write "the only thing I could think of was turkey neck and turkey gizzards and I felt very depressed".

SinisterBuggyMonth Fri 21-Jun-13 13:42:26

I wish someone would send me penis pictures

My DP sent me one in the early days, when he was on holiday.

I had a friend who used to get tons.

No such luck for me obviously I'm a bit of a perve

I like sending and receiving dirty pics and videos


<faints at the notion>

PostBellumBugsy Fri 21-Jun-13 13:55:49

To & from complete strangers AKiss?

ExcuseTypos Fri 21-Jun-13 13:56:18

I did once wake up to a penis.

It was a random large penis sent to me, by god knows who. It put me right off my breakfast.

Quodlibet Fri 21-Jun-13 14:01:54

I think it's one of those things that gay men do a lot (send knob pictures to each other). Clearly it doesn't really translate from the male sexual psyche to the female sexual psyche as intended.

(I've been on the receiving end of unrequited knobbage. A friend of mine was sent one unsolicited by our old lecturer a couple of years after we left uni - how grim?!?)

landofsoapandglory Fri 21-Jun-13 14:08:46

Jeez I have obviously led a sheltered life!

My teens best not be sending pics of their willies to girls!

DH is going away for four months soon, I shan't be needing any photos of his willy TBH, I have seen it almost everyday for the past 20 years. I, also, will not be sending any pics of me knowing my luck I'd send them to my dad in error!

But why?

I don't get it.

You meet a person online, or in RL, get chatting, exchange numbers...and then think "oh I know what will move this relationship forward, a lovely picture of my cock"?

And, tbh if DH sent me a picture of his, I would wonder what the actual fuck was wrong with him, and why he was taking pictures of it.
It would not make me want to run home and ride him ragged.

You know, that's a good point land

If you are actually in a relationship with someone, surely you don't need reminding what his bits and pieces look like, do you?

MamaChubbyLegs Fri 21-Jun-13 14:15:45

My ex sent me a series of pictures by email of him stripping down leading to a series of pictures of his willy in increasing states of arousal.

Unfortunately included his face in the pics. He looked well pleased with himself (on his face, not just his knob).

It was like the most horrible comic I've ever read sad

is that why he is your ex grin

cheerfulweather Fri 21-Jun-13 14:17:49

Neither. Just no!

TheHandbagOfGlory Fri 21-Jun-13 14:24:39

It reminds me of when they do that Live Embarrassing Bodies confused and the doctors look at a photo of some blokes penis to try and diagnose which STD they have.

snuffaluffagus Fri 21-Jun-13 14:24:47

I used to live with friends, and one of them had to move out, so we advertised the room. I showed a couple of people around, one was a guy who was very friendly over the initial emails. I exchanged a couple of emails with him describing us and the room etc. He came around to look at it and stayed for ages chatting to me (my housemate abandoned me with him when he got a phone call!). He didn't take the room but he did text me a photo of his erect penis a few days later. I hadn't saved his number so replied - WHO IS THIS?? He told me and I said, WHAT THE FUCK? He apparantly thought we'd hit it off, had been flirting (no, I was just being friendly).. and therefore I would welcome a photo of his dick.


anklebitersmum Fri 21-Jun-13 14:27:30

When new to tinterweb a few years back I recieved an unexpected willie photo whilst on msn..I was so taken aback I flapped and pulled the computer plug out the wall grin

TalkativeJim Fri 21-Jun-13 14:32:02

I don't get it at all.

It's not just that it's gross. It's that in isolation it just makes for such a ridiculous photograph. Exposes the knob as a really silly looking object. The grainy tummy of the knob-owner blurring away in the background only adds to the cringefulness of it all. Just grim on more levels than it would be possible to list. How, HOW could a sentient being ever then contemplate actual sex with the knob in question? After having had the opportunity to sit quietly, scrutinising what looks like a leg of ham carved into the shape of a meerkat, and thinking 'There it is, the THING that might go up me.'


AllYoursBabooshka Fri 21-Jun-13 14:32:56

Ye gods snuffaluffagus, how did he think you would react?

"Oooh, cock. I must meet this man again. Immediately!"

FoxPass Fri 21-Jun-13 14:35:45

"leg of ham carved into the shape of a mearcat" grin

ElectricSoftParade Fri 21-Jun-13 14:37:31

Happily I haven't received any willy pics but, a couple of years ago, some mothers at our school started to receive vids of a man having a wank. Four or five women received them and obviously chatted about them. All of them were bemused as they had no idea who was sending these intimate vids.

The sender was finally revealed as, although he didn't show his face at all, he had a very distinctive tattoo. On his hand grin.

He has since then been known as Wanky Dad.

gymboywalton Fri 21-Jun-13 14:38:27

this is one of the reasons that i am glad that i am 40 and that i met my husband at 20

really really glad

rednellie Fri 21-Jun-13 14:40:41

Slightly off topic, but on the subject of dressing up as a vagina I was at university with a girl who made an amazing Halloween Costume of lady bits. She made it out of velvet and all sorts of lovely satiny type materials. It was really rather beautiful, if slightly disquieting. If you imagine someone in one of those hot dog outfits, but instead of a bun and a sausage, she had the various lips, clitoris etc and a deep hole in the middle (where she was...hard to explain).

She did have a little string coming out of it too, I thought that was going a bit far...

rednellie Fri 21-Jun-13 14:41:03

And I don't get penis photos. Have never received one. Think it's utterly disgusting and I'm not that old.

Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 14:41:31

Love "unrequited knobbage"

and "There it is, the thing that might go up me"


Buzzardbird Fri 21-Jun-13 14:41:44

My friend's dh asked me if he could send me a picture of his penis. hmm. I told him if he wanted to send me a pic of a massive cock then his face would cover that!....knob

JuliaScurr Fri 21-Jun-13 14:46:04
Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 14:51:20

what is wrong with everyone?


Any one old enough to remember eyeball?

I went there as an internet newbie many years ago. God what an eye opener that was grin

It was not a "chat room" at that point. Just a list of names and you clicked on anyone you wanted. was weird.

I had an old slow pc and dial up connection,was before broadband, ( Im old too). All these years later I still remember the window opening to some naked dude in a cowboy hat having a wank. I was horrified and frantically tried to shut the window but it wouldnt shut. I can laugh now but at the time I was horrified,frantically clicking close before one of my kids saw and it just wouldnt go away. I learned my lesson that day let me tell you but still used to stumble across such things frequently. I had quite an extensive collection of penis shots at one point,my mate and I used to do a weekly share and compare of what wed collected through the week grin

bluebell8782 Fri 21-Jun-13 14:54:28

My DH has sent me pics of himself 'standing to attention' when I'm away. He'll say 'missing you' or something like that - I love it!

They aren't the prettiest looking things but it's his and I love him and find him very sexy so I don't think it's disgusting at all! Makes me smile and gets me going.

Unwanted random nobbly knobs are, however..

BTW... off the subject but I have wondered ... if a man exposes himself in the street to a female I image most would be upset, some would laugh and some would report - would most men react the same if a woman exposed her boobs randomly or is it more excepted because women CAN do that on a beach for example?

greenhill Fri 21-Jun-13 14:57:50

I'm so glad I haven't activated the Internet on my phone. I must be the only person in the country that only uses it for texts and phone calls only.

TBH I don't think I know anyone that would send me pictures like that though...

I may need to have a chat with ds1 tonight.

I am hoping he hasn't sent pictures of his parts to other teenage girls.
It's not something I've ever thought to discuss with him though, you know "hey son, don't take pics of your willy and send it to a girl you like. Because she will think you are an idiot"

SugarandSpice126 Fri 21-Jun-13 15:07:03

I have sent and received various photos (though never of my foof). BUT I think it's hilarious that some men seem to have this idea that sending a photo of their knob out of the blue would make the receiving woman think 'WOW! I must have that!' utterly bizarre.

At university in first year a group of us went on the chatroulette website (finished exams and very bored, please don't judge!). We were greeted mainly by men across the world wanking/with knobs out (cue screeches from us!), looking for similar minded females...though obviously it never quite worked as it's mainly males that go looking for that sort of thing online. I didn't find it even remotely arousing - only a mixture of horror and hysterical laughing! They all looked so proud! I can't imagine many women doing that confused

YouMakeMeWannaLaLa Fri 21-Jun-13 15:10:13

I've had these.

It's awful...they are so proud of it and must assume it will give you instant damp-gusset. No

One man I vaguely knew through friends sent me one, and I could see the door to the bathroom ajar in the background and the legs of someone, probably his girlfriend, sat on the loo shock Now that's low...lower than a standard cock-shot.

Hullygully Fri 21-Jun-13 15:11:45

the light dawns...I had been wondering where all the flashers had gone (hundreds when I were a lass) and they are all online. Of course.

happyyonisleepyyoni Fri 21-Jun-13 15:12:32

It's truly hilarious that men think this is a turn-on for women.

shows why they are single really.

YouMakeMeWannaLaLa Fri 21-Jun-13 15:18:05

I just reply 'Here's my pussy', with this attached wink

freddiefrog Fri 21-Jun-13 15:26:45

DH and I both got one the other day from a friend

Poor bloke was exchanging naughty texts with his girlfriend and sent his knob and balls in all it's glory to his entire contact list by mistake. Got a very grovelly apology a couple of hours later after he'd got the bollocking of his life from his mum.

FitzgeraldProtagonist Fri 21-Jun-13 15:29:09

What is that?! I mean, why?! I am in no way prudish, but such a thing would make me hurl. It is just so self congratulatory!

FitzgeraldProtagonist Fri 21-Jun-13 15:29:56

BAHHaHaaaaa Freddie frog!

MardyBra Fri 21-Jun-13 15:51:10

Vote for classics. Laughing like a loon. It started when someone said "on a similar vein..." way up thread. Not sure if that was intentional or not,

And the costumes in that newspaper link are inspired. Especially the low-hanging bollocks.

mercury7 Fri 21-Jun-13 15:59:42

I've had quite a few as a result of online dating...leaves me cold.
An artistic naked pic of a man with a good physique would be ok but men dont seem to have a clue about how to take such pictures of themselves, and not many have good physiques.

I have sent erotic pictures to someone I was involved with, but only because he asked, I'd never send just isolated body parts.

FrauleinF Fri 21-Jun-13 16:05:52

"the bollocking of his life"

What goes around...

Exactly that mercury

You might as well send a pic of your toenail or something

You cannot just send a pic of your cock. On its own.

It is not sexy or erotic or anything like that.

valiumredhead Fri 21-Jun-13 16:14:52

Good God no OP! <clutches pearls>

FridaKarlov Fri 21-Jun-13 16:23:34

There's no way my husband would ever send me a picture of his knob, but he's a never-nude so that's standard.

I think some men assume that because they'd like to see pics of our tits, we'd be similarly turned on by knob shots. I agree with the poster up thread: the isolation just adds to the ridiculousness. A male friend sent an undolicited dick pic to a female friend of both of us. She forwarded it to me. I sent it back to him with the message "Hahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!" He stopped talking to both of us.

mercury7 Fri 21-Jun-13 16:25:10

my theory is that it is rooted in the same urge that drives the man in the park with the dirty raincoat to expose his erection to passing women.

Pre internet/mobile phones most men who got that urge would have suppressed it or it'd have died before they actually dug out the raincoat & got to the park.

But now they get the urge and before they know if the camera phone has done it's work and his penis pixels are out there in the electronic ether.

I have asked men why they do it and they reply 'so that you know what you're getting' as if that were the only criteriahmm
really it doesnt enter their heads that its an automatic failshock

piprabbit Fri 21-Jun-13 16:32:36

Pre internet/mobile phones men used to get drunk and drop their kecks.

They still do, but now they have a phone to hand (so to speak) to record the joyful moment.

LackaDAISYcal Fri 21-Jun-13 17:59:26

that was me Mardy and no it wasn't but I'm crying now grin

SamuelWestsMistress Fri 21-Jun-13 18:03:27

I'd like it if it was Matt Smith.

Not so if it were Paul Daniels.

Actually I remember getting texts from a random number once and it involved whoever this was sending me pictures of a rather large veiny cock. Wether is was theirs or not remains uncertain...

Not my thing but each to their own

LeGavrOrf Fri 21-Jun-13 18:17:19

It IS like the flashers of old.

These blokes are the modern day equivalent of the dirty flasher in his mac in the opening credits of Cagney and Lacey.

TheRealFellatio Fri 21-Jun-13 18:29:44

I completely agree with you. I would find it odd in the extreme. If the online conversation had got to a point where we were both gagging for it then I'd arrange to meet and shag. or preferably go for a date or two first, and then shag. Not bloody look at pictures of his willy on the webcam. hmm

but then sometimes I feel to old and out of kilter with this world.

To be honest, if some random male acquaintance texted me a video of himself wanking, I'd probably see if I could get a PCSO to have a quick word about the whole sex pest thing. It really is not on. I may be humourless, but I would really object to receiving that.

auntpetunia Fri 21-Jun-13 19:08:52

My DD got sent a couple of these when she first got her phone! She was 10!! I replied to the first one you've got wrong number this is childs phone don't send such filth again! Got 6 in close succesion of it various states of arousal. Took phone to police who I believe paid visit to young man as I'd warned him a child was receiving pics and he hadn't stopped
DD thought it was the funniest thing she'd ever seen and very ugly.

Fakebook Fri 21-Jun-13 19:15:01

Eeew, no way! Penises aren't beautiful things. They look like those wormy things in the Tremors movies. Not pretty.

Oldraver Fri 21-Jun-13 19:19:21

If someone is trying to impress yo,u sending a photo of his dick will not go down well with me

I'm not averse to cock photos but you dont want one off a man who you dont really know

IfNotNowThenWhen Fri 21-Jun-13 19:20:42

Well, I have never had anyone send be a knob picture, and would instantly bin anyone who did , BUT, I have to say that peni are getting a pasting on here arnt they? It seems to be the accepted view of womankind that a penis is gross, ugly and/ or ridiculous.
I actually don't think so. Thinking back to ones I have loved,ones i have lost, and a couple that got away, I have very fond visual memories of cock.
In fact, I have a couple of naked pics of ex boyfriends that I am never deleting...
These shall sustain me in my old age ( I.e now).

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 21-Jun-13 19:31:42

I have directed DH to this thread and there is now much hilarity chez Baba grin

He is threatening to send me a knob shot from work on Monday! <blocks number>

Oldraver Fri 21-Jun-13 19:52:38

My OH has a beautiful cock, if I ever told him he thought I was mesing around.

Then he saw Embarressing Bodies the other week

pigletmania Fri 21-Jun-13 19:55:27

Yuck no thanks. That would be a deal breaker

fuzzpig Fri 21-Jun-13 19:56:14

Howling at a leg of ham carved into the shape of a meerkat grin

qualitytoffee Fri 21-Jun-13 20:00:07

I got talking to a fella on a website that we frequented, and to be honest, we clicked, then he sent me one of those photos, and that was it for me. If he didn't have enough respect for me and my (then 11 year old boy), then he wasn't worth my time. He was 54 for Gods sake!!

Jubelteen Fri 21-Jun-13 20:01:18

What a sheltered life I lead, have never received one, neither have my friends, well if they have they haven't shown them around. Would be completely disgusted if a colleague sent a pic of his dick, or wanking, would have a total SOH failure, it's sexual harassment. Proud to be a prude.

OccasionalTherapy Fri 21-Jun-13 20:02:37

yy to whoever said flasher...wonder if they practise to get a 'best cock shot' and then use that one with all future encounters...or knock off a new one for each separate encounter?
(Not sure if I should be impressed with personalised 'artisan' type cock shots over generic 'I've sent this flatteringly lit cock shot to 27 different women' shots)

The things MN makes you question! hmm

tungthai Fri 21-Jun-13 20:05:37

A 54 year old sending an unsolicited picture of a penis is surely a bit thick? I think this is problem people are getting thicker.

CocacolaMum Fri 21-Jun-13 21:06:41

I have had a photo of a cock! I looked up an ex on facebook just to see how he was (totally facebookstalked him tbh) and liked a pic by mistake, he saw and friend requested me. I was just congratulating myself on dodging a bullet by chucking him when he sent me a cock shot. Idiot.

CocacolaMum Fri 21-Jun-13 21:07:36

and for the record my response was "aww its not changed since we were 16. Poor thing"

StickEmUpPunk Fri 21-Jun-13 21:09:31

I think my second penis experience was randomly being sent one on an msn chat room ages ago.

It sounds like an urban myth ... It was true.
I remember thinking ..... Cripes im glad im a woman!

OccasionalTherapy Fri 21-Jun-13 21:58:53

Love Cocacola's enthusiasm for cock photo! But wow, the 'dodged a bullet' ex sent you a cock shot as a friend request?
Did he really think that a photo of his chipolata is going to make you swoon in remembrance? love the comeback btw!

mercury7 Fri 21-Jun-13 22:07:47

not an urban myth and not even rare, certainly not even limited to lads, I've had them from seemingly sober & respectable men, it's as if they completely misunderstand what women find sexually alluring.

Presumably they get negative responses, and yet they persist, I think they must get a thrill out of the exhibitionism?

Triumphoveradversity Fri 21-Jun-13 22:09:39

I was on a course at work with people from other departments. One of the very nice very close to retirement women got sent a random photo of a naked bloke with a full on erection. It was a wrong number, to my shock she ended up texting him a few times.

ParadiseChick Fri 21-Jun-13 22:22:08

I have been don't know enough a sky remote held up against it, to show size comparison I'm guessing.

ParadiseChick Fri 21-Jun-13 22:25:18

I'll try that again. I've been sent one (cock shot) with a sky remote held up against it...


Which was bigger??


ParadiseChick Fri 21-Jun-13 22:27:11

The remote, but not massively!

HighInterestRat Fri 21-Jun-13 23:03:42

But if I was (hypothetically of course as I'm very married! grin) looking to meet somebody online for a erm casual encounter rather than a relationship then looks and penis size would be definite criteria for me so I might like to see a picture or two. I don't find penis ' es (?) ugly at all as a rule. Certainly no uglier than female genitalia.

SinisterBuggyMonth Fri 21-Jun-13 23:37:52

(checks out)

Littleballofhate Fri 21-Jun-13 23:44:14

In my first 24 hours on an online dating site I received 56 cock pictures. One chap neglected to send his cock in a picture, just his face. I married him.

SinisterBuggyMonth Sat 22-Jun-13 00:25:36

littlethat reads like modern day Jane Austin!

piprabbit Sat 22-Jun-13 00:30:15

little I think that should be MN quote of the year!

Littleballofhate Sat 22-Jun-13 02:06:31

Tis true. Five years wedded bliss in July.

fanjo neither

amazingmumof6 Sat 22-Jun-13 02:19:46

Littleballofhate Sat 22-Jun-13 02:46:24

Why, yes, yes I have! grin

EMUZ Sat 22-Jun-13 03:49:35

It's when they send you the photo with the attached message "what do you think?"
Erm confused it looks like a penis?!

missingmumxox Sat 22-Jun-13 03:54:16

little that made me laugh a lot and feel happy a lot,
sinister you clearly do not work in a gender heavy work place, both mine, first female heavy NHS for 18 years and then my new one less than 10% female and only 2 years, would laughed our arses off at (no pictures of nobs sent to inbox)

catgirl1976 Sat 22-Jun-13 08:53:26

It's happened to me

In fact it was a video of said small penis

I found it neither hot nor acceptable

Twas grim confused

many years ago, when I ran a women's porn mag, we had a Readers' Husbands page, and some of our readers would send in quite nice pics of their blokes with nothing on.
However, we also used to get a lot of pics sent in by single men. We had a magnificent collection all over the office wall with disrespectful captions. Finally the MD insisted we took them all down sad. On the whole it's always seemed to me that men who do this are the ones who are just totally desperate for sex and their whole being is focussed on their bellends. ANd no matter how often you point out to them that this approach won't work, they won't stop.

Lazyjaney Sat 22-Jun-13 09:39:51

I suspect they do it because it works often enough?

ArtisanLentilWeaver Sat 22-Jun-13 09:43:12

Am I the only one who felt a little short changed and underwhelmed with Caitlin Moran's Bruce Springsteen pic?

mercury7 Sat 22-Jun-13 10:53:54

Lazy, I think it only 'works' in the sense that they get some sexual gratification out of doing it, I doubt it ever works as a seduction technique.
I mean the flasher in the park wouldnt be doing his thing if he had a fulfilling sex life would he?

Suspect it's an end in itself rather than a means to an end, and, as Solid says, a sign that he is totally focused on his 'end'

mummymeister Sat 22-Jun-13 11:01:03

I worked with an older lady once who said she thought all penis's looked like turkeys necks. I now have a male turkey and she is absolutely right. no one falls in love with a picture of genitalia they fall in love with a face and a personality.

Branleuse Sat 22-Jun-13 11:02:54

i was desperate to get a cock picture from dp before we met, but he wouldnt send me one till after we'd slept together

I have never ever been sent a cock shot.
I am very happy indeed about that smile

FeegleFion Sat 22-Jun-13 11:09:50

Willy pics are bloody bizarre and just why ? confused

BasilBabyEater Sat 22-Jun-13 11:39:46

Have you lot seen this story about a woman who forwarded a man's dick picks to his mum? Very aposite to this thread.

Branleuse Sat 22-Jun-13 16:57:06

that's horrid about the woman forwarding pics to his mum

honeytea Sat 22-Jun-13 17:17:27

My lovely dp sent me penis photos, he also sent me photos of the first snow and flowers he had picked for me and a sunset and his new haircut.

I very much enjoyed the penis photos, we had a long distance relationship so I didn't get much chance to see his penis in the flesh ( so to speak) I am very unworldly but from my very limited experience he has a lovely penis so the photos were lovely.

I also sent him photos of me topless.

All this naked photo swapping worked for us, he is a fantastic partenvand a wonderful father.

ShellyBoobs Sat 22-Jun-13 18:12:17

BasilBabyEater - that's funny and he deserved it.

She didn't need to finish it with a comment about rape, though.

melika Sat 22-Jun-13 18:26:57

Show me.

badtime Sun 23-Jun-13 11:45:29

Shelly, it was a comment about 'rape culture', not rape.

(fwiw, I think the term is overused, but her comment wasn't as crass as it seems).

badtime Sun 23-Jun-13 11:47:45

An electrician working on my house sent me a picture of his knob. I was horrified and thought it must have been in error. It wasn't!

mercury7 Sun 23-Jun-13 12:05:26

Pickled, was the sparks knob picture entirely apropos of nothing, or was he genuinely under the impression (however mistaken) that you were sexually interested in him?

I have no idea. He hadn't put the picture cost in with the quotation!

peteypiranha Sun 23-Jun-13 13:53:56

I love getting pics of dhs cock. It gets me in the mood for the evening.

FreudiansSlipper Sun 23-Jun-13 13:56:22

pickledmoomin i would reported him to his manager (if he has one)

when has it become ok to harass women who either work with you or you have done work for like this

I would if it happened now. It was 5 years ago. I'm far less tolerant than I was!

YoniBottsBumgina Sun 23-Jun-13 16:38:40

I'm 25 and I think I have had a cock photo off every single man who has ever been vaguely interested in me (well, enough to have my email/msn/facebook and let me know about said interest anyway). My friends who I have asked report the same.

You get used to it after the first couple but I am still baffled as to why they think it's attractive confused TBF the only one I've actually had from DP was sent in an ironic manner, but others weren't and they'd always be badgering you for compliments etc. WTF, it's a cock! I don't care what it looks like, only what you do with it grin

Thank God I've never been sent a cock pic! When I found out about my exH's affair I had a quick scan of his emails. He'd sent the OW a penis pic with the caption, 'Look at my tan line!' She emailed back, 'I want to put my face in that, mmmm!' shock Eeewww. Boak. He was 46, fgs, and it bends to the left.

I have told everybody that I can think of about this. grin

melika Sun 23-Jun-13 19:48:55

My God times have changed! It's almost normal to send these? I must be a prude. I think that would put me right off a man if he sent me one.

Definitely a generational thing. I am 54 and can confidently say I have never received such a photo.


I'm 32 and I've never received a penis photo either. I'm very glad of this.

MatureUniStudent Sun 23-Jun-13 21:08:46

Ellen grin

IneedAyoniNickname Sun 23-Jun-13 21:22:55

A guy I recently met online, who previously seemed lovely, sent me a penis.picture. at least I think he did tbh it was so small!.seriously!

AnyFucker Sun 23-Jun-13 21:33:18

I think we should be positive about the idea of cock pic sending

it makes it easier to weed out the fuckwits, instead of having to date them for a while before you realise they are wastes of oxygen

every cloud...

Well, yes. Got to look on the bright side...

Artyjools Sun 23-Jun-13 21:42:19

I just want to thank Mumsnet for making me laugh so much I cried. My husband came in and wondered what was going on. We then walked the dog and I tried to tell him about the man dressed as a penis being attacked and being rescued by a woman dressed as a vagina and I started laughing/crying again. He couldn't get any sense out of me.

We are far too old to understand any of this. I asked him if he would send me a photo of his bits and he said he would when they invented wide-screen phones grin.

2712 Sun 23-Jun-13 21:46:33

Can someone please tell me how to share this thread on my facebook as my friends would love it!

lemonmuffin Sun 23-Jun-13 21:54:25

I quite like getting cock photos from a new boyfriend tbh.

Not off some random stranger obviously. But from someone you've been seeing for a while and already slept with, it can be quite a turn on.

As always, people are different though. Maybe it's an age thing.

LackaDAISYcal Sun 23-Jun-13 22:04:15

I'm seriously contemplating joing a dating website just so I can get sent some cockshots. This is a whole dating area that I will probably never ever have experience of (though a male friend at high school did make me an 18th birthday card of a man in a black mac and when you opened it up he was a flasher complete with pop-up cock, if that counts?)

However, I can just imagine DH's post on "Just found out my wife has joined a dating website and has hundreds of photos of random cocks on her phone, what should I do?"

The overwhelming response...

Leave the bitch!

NigellaEllaElla Sun 23-Jun-13 22:05:13

I have not laughed this much in forever!!! I am shaking and crying with laughter. Absolutely brilliant. Loving the outrage and in particular the shock at the "cum video"

For the record I haven't been sent a penis pic. I am very, very glad about this.

mercury7 Sun 23-Jun-13 22:13:09

I once encountered a skype flasher, I hung up the second I realised what was happening...he pestered me by text asking why I'd hung up, I ignored him for a while, then sent a reply to shut him up...he tried to pretend it was an accidentshock

drfayray Mon 24-Jun-13 02:25:43

I am 51 and get them hmm
I really wish they wouldn't.
But it is a way to weed out the fuckwitts.

Hullygully Mon 24-Jun-13 08:19:31

I wonder how many ohdearlordfuckoffyouvilescumbags they have to get before they realise it isn't working?

AnyFucker Mon 24-Jun-13 09:23:22

Well, these blokes a bit dim, they probably don't connect the dots in their lives generally so I suppose they just keep doing it in the face of derision and contempt.

Very sad

AnyFucker Mon 24-Jun-13 09:23:33


Hullygully Mon 24-Jun-13 09:25:29


I think the thrill must be in the sending, the exhibitionism of it, rather than in the hoped for reception.

Like: here is my DICK <shivery thrill, consequences irrelevant>

mercury7 Mon 24-Jun-13 09:35:41

It's the only sexual thrill they get:0

They probably count any response, however disparaging, as a success.

WildlingPrincess Mon 24-Jun-13 09:39:37

Knew this would be about online dating! I've received them before. None were anything to write home about.

peeriebear Mon 24-Jun-13 09:43:35

I received a dick photo from the assistant DA of Bronx County once (I am in East Midlands!)
That was a strange time in my life...

PostBellumBugsy Mon 24-Jun-13 10:09:35

I don't think they get a particular thrill from sending out their nob shots, because I don't think it is a big deal for them. I think they are hoping for reciprocal shots & that is where the thrill lies.

Online dating is a numbers game. If you send enough women a shot of your nob, with a request for a reciprocal photo, you will probably get a few back. It is the same as if you start the 'sext' talk with enough women, then some will reciprocate. There is almost a formula feel to some of these online conversations sometimes and you can anticipate exactly where it will end up with the bloody nob shot.

Maybe I'm very cynical and other ODers will have a different perception.

Hullygully Mon 24-Jun-13 10:59:17

You're probs right postbellum

But I can't bear to think so, it's too awfully horribly depressing
