3 Things To Do When You Get A Dick Pic

3 Things To Do When You Get A Dick Pic

First, remain calm.

Millions of law-abiding young women across North America receive text messages that include the daunting, unwelcomed, yet sometimes attractive image of a man's penis.

That's right, mandingos, bamboo sticks, meat -- the dick.

I, like many other women, do not know what inspires these animals (men) to send such photos. But I have a few suggestions for how women can respond when they receive a dick pic by surprise.

First, remain calm.

I know taking a deep breath and carefully crafting your response is not the first thing you'll think about when the image of the head, shaft, and jungle of pubes at the base appears on your screen.

But it's imperative to not let the dick pic scare you or anger you. Your next steps could be the factor in changing this animal's life, for the better.

Second, analyze the dick.

Yea, analyze it. Is it a nice dick?

One you would like to have in your life?

Did he put his face in it?

If he put his face in it, that's love right there. I mean, he trusts you. So if you get a mandingo pic with a face, don't freak out. He most likely is just a freak and wants you to be a freak too. How cute. On the grim side, is the penis lame? Like does it barely even stand up on it's own? How's the angle? Consider all three. If each warrants a thumb down, delete pic and respond accordingly.

Lastly, respond accordingly.

This can be a tricky one. Your reply really depends on 1) how well you know the guy, 2) the type of relationship you have, 3) your interest in him.

If you've just met a guy and a week later, and he is sending dick pics, and you have never flirted (hardcore flirted), and he's firing off dick pics; go for the jugular. Curse his ass out. (But if it's a nice dick, go easy.) Like don't insult the dick, just his behavior. Especially for dudes over 25. Maybe no one has ever addressed his dick-pic-sending aggressively and he needs to know why it's unacceptable.

Some relationships are hard to define. Some people flirt with one another, and even sleep with each other, but never desire anything serious. I think if this is the case, getting a dick pic may be okay as long as it's welcomed. Hey, you can even shoot back a boob pic. Keep it playful and respectful though. (NEVER PUT YOUR FACE IN IT.) I learned that the hard way.

Are you really in to this guy? Be real, some dudes are just good for the mandingo, and others you could see raising children with. If you want something meaningful, getting a dick pic too soon could mean you need to move on and look elsewhere. If you're down for a good time, simply laughing it off will save you some drama.

I have mixed feelings about this dick pic ordeal. On one hand, if a man truly wants to spend time with you and is attracted to you, he will make that known in very appropriate ways. On the other hand, I think sending pictures like this can steam things up. But only if the timing is right, and both people agree that it is OK.

As for the sudden, dude-I-barely-know-you dick pics, share with friends, get a great laugh, then delete. The dick might be nice, but he ain't shit. Reply with haste and ask, "what would your mother say?"

My Parents Didn’t Tell Me To Stay Pure Until Marriage, I Made That Decision On My Own

So, please respect my decision.


As we evolve into a more open and accepting world, the one thing that is getting less taboo is sex. It's not something that is talked about behind closed doors. It's something that is on the television screens and easily accessible on our phones. People talk about it and promote it like it's small talk. It's so hard to escape, especially as a young adult.

To say that I am staying pure until marriage is a very uncommon thing, at least in my opinion. Sure, I have friends who are in the same boat as I am. But, even at a Christian college, sex is everywhere and most people are partaking in it. However, I decided to not.

Growing up, my parents never told me to stay pure until marriage directly. I went to church and heard about it in sermons. I knew that by keeping myself pure until marriage, I would enjoy it more knowing that I waited for my future husband. I understand that some people may not agree with me on this topic, but here's why I am saving myself.

1. I want to know that the man loves me.

For me, I want to have sex with someone that I love. Now, you may defend this with the fact that your boyfriend loves you. That's great. But, dating isn't always a sure thing. Boys (and girls) can say that they love you, just to get in your pants. And, they will. It happens all the time. And, because you are blinded by love, you will end up giving in and doing it. But, see, I don't want to be blinded by love. I want to know that the person I am with, is with me forever. By making the biggest commitment aka marriage, that is a clear sign that they love me and want me forever. This is a good example of actions show more than words do. They can say they love me, but when they showcase that love, that's when I know it is real.

2. I want to give all of me to one person.

I heard this great example my senior year that discusses this exact thing. For someone like Hugh Hefner, who was with HUNDREDS of women, when he got older, he said he didn't feel anything anymore when it came to sex. He was numbed by the whole experience. It wasn't pleasurable or for love. By having sex with countless women, he had given a little part of himself to each of them, until he had nothing left. Therefore, by saving myself for one person, they would be getting all of me. As a whole. 100%. This is special because no one else has that except for my future husband.

3. The idea of getting pregnant scares me because of the lack of security.

For the past three generations in my family, they have all had children young. 15, to 17, to 20 years old. Blinded by love. Manipulated by their hormones. They had sex and got pregnant. To see not only 1 woman, but 3 women in my life go through that, I know how difficult it is. You're a kid yourself. Personally, I do want children. However, I have so many dreams and goals for myself. I want to graduate from college. Get a good career. Travel. Fall in love. A lot of that can be halted by a child. I don't know if I would get to achieve everything I want to, especially if I would have to raise the child alone (which usually happens). So, by waiting for marriage, I am using the biggest form of birth control.

4. There's no comparing, if you have only been with one person.

Now, this is different for every relationship. However, everyone feels insecure or uncomfortable when it comes to dating and relationships. Knowing that someone has had sex prior, you wonder if you are shaping up or doing better than the previous. By only having sex with one person, it relieves the stress of comparison.

5. It brings me closer to God.

One important lesson I have learned from friends, college, and personal experience, is that relationships (when it isn't built on God), you tend to stray away from Him. Therefore, by making my relationship with God stronger, I fall in love with Him first. Then, I am capable of loving a boy and committing to something like marriage and sex.

So, no, my parents never convinced me to stay pure until marriage. It was my own decision. I have reasoning for staying pure and it's my choice. So, please stop shaming virginity in the 21st century, because I'm not shaming you if you aren't one.
