Skip to comments.Vanity About Vanity: Electronic Exhibitionism?
Posted on 11/15/2012 10:50:37 AM PST by dagogo redux
I'm curious, among our crowd here, if anyone out there ever engaged in the sort of exhibitionistic shenanigans we keep reading about in the endless stream of scandals in recent years. The appeal of doing so eludes me, and I'd like to understand this growing phenomenon better.
Have you ever posted or sent naked or bare-chested photos of yourself to a member of the opposite sex to impress them?
Did you think it would impress them? Did it?
If unsolicited, did you assume these postings or emails would be well received? Were they?
Variations on this theme are also welcome.
No guy in the picture, although it’s not clear who took it. It’s not the most flattering of photos, either . . . but she must’ve liked it. And you guys aren’t coming to the wedding, anyway, so she’ll never know I think so.
How interested, I don’t know but she is definitely seeking your attention. How much of it? Got me, maybe she wants you on a string or she actually wants you. You know her character so try and sort that out, carefully.
I'm much more impressive in braille than in person.
I honestly don’t understand why men send pictures of their penises to women. They are ugly and women don’t want to see your junk.
If you have abs like Tatum Channing send those.
I don’t so I don’t...
Did she have a dog or child in the photo? Or some special item that she just adores? That would make it more just sharing her likes, loves etc.
If the photo was just of her and all about her, she wants something from you.
Unless she adores the blouse she was wearing, or her couch . . . .
Honestly, I think that's a little weird. If you are already interested, I assume you actually know her and know what she looks like. Why would she just decide to send a picture? It seems a little narcissistic.
That was why I asked. If women are half as intelligent as I think they are (chuckle), then she knows I’m interested. Why send the photo? She should be running for dear life.
I've been a programmer for a long time and, contrary to what a lot of people seem to believe, the internet and emails are basically public forums. It is one of the least anonymous places ever invented. Always has been.
My last comment was directed to "All," because I wanted to thank everyone for letting me hijack this thread. I would never have dared to ask, otherwise.
Hmmm, that sounds like she is interested in you or she wants you to lust after her(just wants your attention and nothing more, it is for her ego) You will know the difference.
But if she asked— do you like my new sofa, blouse, haircut? That wouldn’t so much mean interest.
Here’s a photo of me standing naked in a snowstorm.
Not photos, but I’ve gotten a few text messages from the wife that’d raise an eyebrow. Yeah, I enjoyed them — and I made sure she knew it.
Regular exhibitionism is less permanent than electronic exhibitionism, though ... so that’s a better option. A little flash of skin outside the house is always fun. Its better live than in photos anyway — more ... tactile.
All this crap about sex and sex scandals is the media distracting us from the fact that the evil Obama communist perpetrated impeachable offenses in killing 4 Americans and covering that up.
And it keeps them from having to talk about the widespread voter fraud.
I got tied up with some work just after posting anyway, so I’m glad for the hijack. :)
(requisite dirty picture included)
My pleasure. As far as ethnic tradition goes, you are among those who might be selected to be figuratively be hung in effigy at the wedding, if it occurs.
