It seems that the ‘naked selfie’ or more modest ‘underwear selfie’ is something that has taken the world by storm. It provides a less personal way to get personal. I suppose it could be used as some sort of foreplay, to excite your partners, or entice them into bed with you later that evening, but my thoughts are that it is more used to boost ones confidence, I mean who doesn’t like being told how hot they are? A friend of mine once said to me ‘If you’re having a bad day, just remember, you’re someone’s reason to masturbate.’ Which I think sums up perfectly this revealing selfie trend. I still don’t condone this behaviour, its only one small click from the recipients phone, to forwarding to their friends, or worse, posting online, and as we’ve seen in recent months, once it’s out there, it’s almost impossible to get back.
I was recently asked for an underwear selfie. It’s not the first time, and I don’t imagine it’ll be the last. While I’m not supermodel thin, or anything more than average in the aesthetics department, I suppose everyone is attractive to someone so by the application of this theory (and the wise words of my friend!), there must be a handful of men out there that would like to see these goodies.
Of course there was never any doubt in my mind as to the outcome of that conversation. But it got me thinking, it gets boring just saying ‘no’ or any one word variation of that. How would these seemingly confident men react to a stream of witty and cleaver comebacks and turndowns? My best guess is the majority wouldn’t know what to do, and move on to the next target, in the hopes that her morals are lower than his standards.
I am a fan of sending a picture of a fat naked man from the internet, or the following:
I feel it adds an extra punch.
This guy who asked for my underwear selfie, was slightly shocked at my response, but ultimately apologised for his rude behaviour. I have to admit, I did not expect an apology of any sort. It was like he reverted back to being a child at school, saying an unwelcome or inappropriate comment in the classroom, and being reprimanded by the teacher. I don’t think it particularly helped that he was high, but that’s the risk you take when you take drugs and tinder. Let that be a lesson, kids, don’t Tinder whilst under the influence!
I’ll leave you with that lesson and some ideas for how to respond then next time a guy asks you for nudes;
