Most women who’ve tried online dating will have, at some point, been sent an unsolicited photos of a stranger’s penis.
Despite the fact that very few women actually like receiving dick pics (and therefore, presumably, the men sending them get 0 sex), this doesn’t seem to have deterred guys from sending them.
But LA-based writer Kerry Quinn had an idea; what if she sent men unsolicited vagina pics? Wouldn’t that be a great way to teach them a lesson?
This is what happened…
First up Kerry had to find a suitable vagina. Writing on Thrillist, the 41-year-old explained: ‘the only people who see mine are men I’m intimate with (and, duh, my gynecologist).’
Thankfully there are no shortage of vagina pictures on the internet (we know, shocker), and after a bit of digging (sorry) Kerry found a ‘cute’ one she was happy with.
Next up Kerry set up a profile on dating app Bumble, which allows users to send each other pictures through the app. As she explained, ‘If I was going to send vaje pics willy-nilly, I didn’t want to have too many weirdos knowing my phone number.’
Armed with her Bumble profile and v-pic Kerry then set about matching with 100 unsuspecting men… and that’s when the fun really began.
First up Kerry tried a bit of flirting before sending the pics after a bit of flirting. When that failed to shock anyone she attempted sending it earlier in the exchange. By the end of her experiment Kerry was basically sending the vagina pic as an opener.
Here’s a selection of the responses she received. Brace yourselves.
*We LOVE this guy!
Of the 37 guys who replied to her unsolicited vagina pic, three sent her shirtless pics, seven replied with X-rated accounts of what they’d like to do to fake vagina, eight asked to see more, and 10 replied with dick pics ‘including one that included, a, um, happy ending.’
‘Every one of them wanted to meet me, regardless of age or location.’ mused Kerry, who obviously never actually met up with any of the IRL, because that would have been really weird and probably a bit dangerous too.
And although Kerry didn’t succeed in her aim to shock any of the men, the experience wasn’t totally without value for her. She admitted: ‘In a strange twist, though, I did feel empowered, although in a much different way than I expected.
‘Men were clamoring to meet me, which is a great feeling even if it’s not for the right reasons. I’ll be honest: even though it wasn’t mine, I stood a little bit taller for a few days all thanks to the fact that, uh, guys love v-pics.’
There’s a lesson in there somewhere.
