Not me.

Have had some creep stroking my bottom on a crowded tube once.

Or is that a double negative? I have never been flashed at. Unless you count willy waggling in your own home.

Not me. Groped by a couple of strangers but never flashed.

Unless you count boyfriend many years ago doing "the helicopter" for me.

I was flashed at 21, on the Tube of all places, by some utter saddo in a long Aran sweater, erection and cowboy boots. Will remember it to this day. <urgh>

So not me then.

Nope, never.

No, never.

I am not sure how I'd react if it happened - I'd like to think I'd say something amusing and deflating like "oooh, like a penis, only smaller" but I'd probably be [shocked].

I went to an all girls school, our uniforms were like flasher magnets. We used to compare the various methods and found it quite funny. My favourite was the 'not wearing trousers or pants in the car' method, where they drive alongside and open the car door. (although we always went around in groups - not funny if you're on your own.)

My friend and I were walking once and some creep was following us (on a bicycle) with his hands down his pants, but thankfully we didn't have to see anything.

I've been flashed. I was walking home from secondary school, past the cemetary with some of my friends. As we were walking by he called out and we all turned around and faced it. It was the first time I had seen a real life penis. We were sooooo shocked.

We called out (to the school across the road), while J and N climbed over the railings to get him.

He ran away. What a wuss.

I've been flashed in Central Park, walking a dog at 8am.

I wasn't shocked or upset. I was fucking FURIOUS.

That could have been a kid!

There were cops in the park, on little golf-buggies. I sent them after him.

i have been flashed at, and hate the fact that it is seen as something amusing.

When i was flashed at, i was 19, it was 2am in the morning, i was cycling home and had a puncture, so had to walk the last bit, i heard a voice behind me, turned round and saw a man, stood there with an erection, he had a stocking over his face, i remember thinking, 'my god he's going to kill me', i don't know why, i was so scared i picked up my bike(!) and ran as fast as i could , when i got home i had to stay in my friends room - shared house. the next day i reported it to the police, and even the policewoman found it amusing, it really, really wasn't.

When I was 14 me and a friend were sitting in a Cathedral in a big city in Germany (exchange trip) whose name escapes me <old gimmer> and the guy along the pew was masturbating.

Never in this Country though.

Oh. Hmmm, well, I just remembered something, but I don't know if it counts as flashing. I was in Freiburg, Germany, biking along the river around mid-day, and there was a homeless man sat on a park bench along the river, with this trousers round his ankles, wanking away in plain sight. It was one of those utterly improbable "does not compute" things - I was cycling towards him, I saw him and what he was doing but utterly failed to process what my eyes were seeing, even as I biked past. He never stopped as I zipped past, and when I finally took in what I'd just seen I nearly fell off my bike.

So does that count then?

Me, I have never been flashed at. Wish there more of us able to say that to both flashing and other kinds of sexual assault (where sadly I would have give another answer).

AurraSing Tue 21-Jun-11 06:36:17

jacksmania Erm,yes.
I've been flashed at twice, once when I was about 7 walking home from school and later as an adult in Egypt. I didn't feel intimidated either time, just cross.
