A dick pic, is a picture of a man’s genitals. Most of the time, it will be un-solicited and sent by anonymous men over the Internet. It is the kind of message that pops-up on your phone in the middle of your working day, or that wakes you up in the middle of night at 3 AM with a sick feeling in your stomach. It has become a vehicle for expressing sexual interest in someone, or for flirting online. No futile presentations, such as ‘Hey my name is...’ or ‘Nice to meet you...’ are needed anymore. A simple man’s penis can do the entire job of seduction. It’s straight to the point, it doesn’t waste time, and it can be experienced as something very aggressive for the receiver.
