This week’s Anthony Weiner dick pic scandal — part two! — reminded me of this hilarious column written by our dear Mind of Man, John DeVore. Let’s learn, from an actual man, why dudes like to send pictures of their penises. — Amelia
Men send pictures of their penises because we want the world, or the person we love, or the person we love that week, to know that we have penises. We tell ourselves it’s to make women hot and bothered, but the truth is, those pictures just make us swell … with pride. If it wasn’t aberrant behavior, we’d hang pics of our red hot on the refrigerator door like a blue ribbon from the school science fair.
I have sent one picture of my wang to one woman. We were flirting over text, and she dared me, and so I took the picture. Considering I didn’t have time to properly light my apartment, I think the photo of el generalissimo was pretty good. I framed the shot well. I mean, it was no Mapplethorpe, but it wasn’t your average Craigslist wang portrait, where all penises look like they’re attached to an aspiring sexual predator. I sent the pic as a joke, because the request was a joke. She thought the picture was funny. She thought the entire exchange between us was very funny. Too funny. It wasn’t that funny, lady. I sent a picture of my jangly-gangly as a joke, but a little awe wouldn’t have hurt. After all, while it wasn’t a serious text, I still unleashed the kraken. Keep reading »
As we’re all fairly aware, a man with a hilariously ironic name was caught in a bit of a situation in which groin and chest photographs were Tweeted to various women, some of whom he clearly did not know. And before that a football hero allegedly* sent pics of his tony weiner to a woman who did not appreciate the gesture. Here’s where Anthony Weiner (and Brett Favre) went wrong and how you can send photographs of your swimsuit zones without fear of recrimination (and only some humiliation). This is what the grownups call sexting.
1) Be sexy. For guys, tumescence is of the essence. The so-called Brett Favre picture featured a flaccid wang book-ended by Crocs. I’m not sure of a more clear way to tell a woman that you’re completely uninterested in her sexually than the combination of tacky sandal thingies and soft dinghies. For the ladies, maintain your best level of grooming, don’t get too close and show some body. Read more on Your Tango…
It ain’t a scandal until someone gives a tell-all interview to “Inside Edition.” Good one, Sydney Leathers! The progressive activist from Indiana who carried on a sexting-and-phone-sex relationship with NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has given her first TV interview. Originally, Leather had only shared all her sexts with the gossip blog The Dirty. In the clips from this interview, she rehashes everything we already know about their dirty deeds — the texts were “very explicit”; he promised to buy her a condo in Chicago where they could go have sex; he’s a total liar — but she does debut a “beauty mark” piercing above her upper lip. She also agrees Carlos Danger is most definitely a dirty old man. Oh, Sydney, I kinda like you. [Gothamist]
Once the dirty Facebook chat history between Sydney Leathers and Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner aka “Carlos Danger” surfaced, we figured it would be just a matter of time before we saw the photos referenced in the chat. I read it in its entirety last night, by the way. It was definitely dirty, but not out of the realm of what you’d imagine it would be. I wouldn’t describe it as kinky, although Weiner seems to have a bit of a high heel fetish.
There are no nude photos of Weiner’s 23-year-old chat buddy YET, but TMZ obtained this picture of Leathers topless in a thong. After the jump you can see her appeasing Weiner’s high heel fetish and posing for a selfie in some full-coverage lingerie looking like the wholesome Indiana girl that she is. And if you dare, here are pictures of Weiner’s uncensored wiener (NSFW!!!). Keep reading »
Sydney Elaine Leathers, a 23-year-old progressive activist from Indiana, has been identified by Buzzfeed as the young woman who was sexting and phone sexing Democratic New York City Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner. The former Congressman, we learned yesterday, was identifying himself online under the avatar name “Carlos Danger.”
Sydney Leathers? Carlos Danger? What, did Sarah Palin pick the names for all these people? Keep reading »
Former Democratic Representative and current New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted today to even more naughty behavior online: he reportedly exchanged XXX pics and had sexy chats on the phone with a young woman for a period of six months. Although the timeline is still unclear, it is thought that this latest affair occurred during or just after he resigned from Congress in 2011, when he was busted sexting dick pics to ladies who aren’t his wife and lying to the public about it.

Ladies, ever get a creepy, unwanted dick pic or jerk off shot from a dude online? There you were, talking about your favorite Jay-Z song and then all the sudden — blam! — there’s a dick all up in your inbox. That’s what happened to Sarah, who had posted a profile on the dating website Let’s Date, hoping to find someone nice. The 20-year-old Long Island, New York, woman was was minding her own business, talking about the weather — literally, talking about the weather — with a guy named Trevor, when he surprise dick-pic-ed her.
Sarah was understandably upset. “I don’t need to be disrespected by someone I don’t know,” she texted back to him. Sarah told Trevor to leave her alone, but he didn’t listen, and instead responded with a barrage of insults. Time and again she asked that he stop messaging her, but he wouldn’t.
But rather than just getting mad, she got even. Keep reading »
Holy double standard, Batman!
Our fellow ladyblog Jezebel has an exclusive today about a 16-year-old Catholic school student in Fairfax, Virginia, who sexted a photo to two lacrosse players at the school, who then shared it with the rest of their team. The girl has been kicked out of school. Everyone on the lacrosse team, including the boy(s) who shared the sext, are still enrolled.
You can read the whole story at Jezebel, but the shorter version of the story is that 16-year-old Alexis, who manages the Paul VI Catholic High School lacrosse team, texted a topless picture of herself to her friend, a lacrosse player, on a dare. Together, they laughed about it and group-texted the sext to a second lacrosse player. They all thought they were just joking around, but then one of the boys — it’s not clear exactly who — then shared the sext with the whole lacrosse team. You know, like a tit-pic expediting service.

Texting? It’s more than that. Sexting? Not exactly. Welcome to ‘flirtexting’ — the “sweet nothings” of the digital world.
Emoticons. Acronyms. Hashtags. In order to keep up with our evolving digital culture, we’ve invented plenty of new ways to communicate — and the language of love is no different. Texting with your significant other is one of the best ways to stay connected throughout the day — and it can also be one of the sexiest and most creative. In fact, ‘flirtexting,’ as we like to call it, is practically an art form, and anyone can be a Van Gogh. We asked digital dating and e-flirting expert Laurie Davis, author of Love At First Click, to explain what exactly flirtexting is — and how to master it. Read more on YourTango…
We’re so bored of our own text messages. The only people who text us regularly are our mothers. Hi mom! We love you, but blergh. We wonder what kind of sexy text messages celeb couples are exchanging … hmmm. They must me more titillating than ours. Or at least more entertaining.
