Because it's the least-sexy thing you can do.
You know what professional photographers do? They make people look sexy. Do you know why they get paid to do that? Because normal people can't do it themselves. IFC's new web series Modern Dating takes on all the challenges of being a single person who doesn't want to be one in the 21st Century. This episode, "The Trouble With Taking A Sexy Selfie" stars Riley Soloner (aka Vacation Jason of The Chris Gethard Show) as a guy who thought he was going to get to see some sultry pics of his lady friend. Unfortunately, he has to find an attractive angle for himself, first.
