Sometimes human stupidity is extremely entertaining. However, there are times where it is not so funny and I wonder how humans have survived this long. This week has given me a great contrast of both, but the story I am about to share was not funny for me. I would probably laugh if it happened to someone else, but I did not enjoy the experience.
Anyway, it happened on Monday. I guess it was actually Sunday night for the person on the other end of this exchange, but it was Monday morning when I happened upon it. By it, I mean the photograph of a penis that had been sent to my phone.
Now, for those of you who know about my new boyfriend, it wasn’t his penis. It was the penis of a guy I don’t even talk to anymore. He didn’t send me any kind of message along with the photo, not even a winky emoticon. It was just the penis.
I don’t know what this person was thinking when he sent me the photo. He knows that I’m seeing someone, so I don’t know why he thought that it was a good idea to text me a dick pic. Was he thinking that I would see his penis and realize what I was missing? Because that’s not what happened at all.
I saw the penis and deleted the message, mortified. I debated whether or not I should tell my boyfriend about it. I was worried that he would get mad or upset when he had nothing to worry about on my part, but I decided that honesty was the best policy in a new relationship. Or any relationship, really.
Luckily, the boyfriend in question handled it really well. He obviously did not like that some guy he didn’t even know had sent his girlfriend a dic pic, but he was more concerned about how upset I was about getting the photo.
I am sharing this because I would like to raise awareness about how unwelcome random dick pics are. If you ever have the urge to send someone a photo about your genitals, make sure you think that through. Are you certain that the person on the other end will enjoy waking up to a penis on their phone? If your first thought is, “My penis is fabulous! Who wouldn’t enjoy having a picture of it on their phone?” then you probably shouldn’t send the photo. You think too highly of yourself.
