To the uninitiated, sending a dick pic seems like a real dick move, a staggering desecration of a phone's purity. But despite a lot of women writing how creepy these spontaneous phallic works of art are, many dudes continue to send their nudes. On Reddit, some perpetrators finally explained why.

A simulation of the deed in question.
A simulation of the deed in question.

1. For Stringer71, the pic is an end in itself, rather than about getting laid. It also resulted in jail time.

A few years ago, I was all wrapped up in depression and porn addiction. I didn't really want to have sex with someone so much as jerk off and send dick pics, so that's what I did. I snapchatted pretty much every female contact I had from an "anonymous" account. Some gals several times a day. A few of them ended up getting together, doing some detective work, and calling the police. I was charged with 3 counts of Privacy in Communications and 3 counts of indecent exposure, had to spend 3 days in jail, pay a hefty fine, lost my job, lost my apartment, had to move back in with my mom for a year, and alienated myself from a lot of friends. First time I've ever been in trouble with the law; I complied with everything and admitted it all straight away - the cops had to stop me so they could actually read me my rights. The prosecutor wanted to hit me with everything she could; over $10,000 in fines; up to 3 years in jail; registering as a sex offender.I'm left with one count of Indecent Exposure on my record for the rest of my life, barring a pardon from the Governor which will probably never happen.

It's the worst I have ever felt, and it still holds sway over me, today. I've never fully bounced back, but goddamn it I'm trying. When the judge handed down the sentencing, he looked me in the eye and said, "There's going to be a lot of people trying to get the same jobs you'll apply for, but they haven't done the things you've done. Good luck finding work." Pissed me off so much, and drives me to be better so I can send him a letter and thank him.

It's been , I've started my own video production business, have worked for FoxNews, Fox Sports, Food Channel, and Travel Channel. I've done special effects makeup on Eric Roberts. I've held high level production jobs on movies with Wilford Brimley and Margot Kidder (Lois Muthafuckin' Lane, y'all!). I'm getting better and stronger with every step, because fuck that judge and fuck my past self.

2. Tempacct16 gets right to it, and straight-up says it's a kink.

Probably late but I'll chime in as someone who does this from time to time. I would describe it as a kink, really. There's a certain reaction I'm looking for from the recipient and it just makes me feel good. I'm rarely looking for sex to be the end result of it--i think I just enjoy the reaction and it makes me feel like someone's impressed with me and has a sexual desire for me. I generally send it to girls that I've hooked up with previously and try to "make them miss me," I suppose. Not sure if it sounds pathetic but whatever. It looked like this thread was missing actual testimony so there you go.

3. AsAGayJewishDemocrat uses his worm as bait.

I can't speak for straight men, but I'm a gay guy and will occasionally do this. To be honest, I realize it's a turn off to many - but to some it is a quick and easy way to gauge interest.

My dad taught me to cast a wide net instead of focusing on my favorite fish.

4. It's an art form for I_Enjoy_Cashews.

Well, if I do that, it won't be "just a dick". I'll go on Snapchat and doodle on it--make it look like an elephant, tree, banana, etc... then randomly send it to my SO for a laugh.

5. itsreallyscary "gets off on reactions," and is Internet-famous for it.

I did this.

I have a big dong and I get off on the reactions. It made me feel good about myself, and I always felt like having a big dong sucks if nobody knows about it, it doesn't work to your advantage. But really I was just kinda horny and I wanted someone to find me attractive.

It turned into being a dick guy on Omegle, and hoping to catch a girl watching.

Then I discovered Chaturbate, and now I have like a huge following and pretty much any time I log on I can guarantee at least three or four cam girls watching me and getting off at the same time. It's pretty great. Shallow, unfulfilling, and cheap, but god it feels good. I get all kinds of attention and constant reactions and I TOTALLY get off on it.

It made me really confident in myself. I started working out and got in really good shape and now I have like a whole following that 'worships' my dong.

It's really strange, but I imagine this is what most guys who do this are after.

6. It's a dangerous thrill for rz-req.

I've sent my dick to some girls I knew for a short time and was lucky to receive positive responses; the thrill to do it got the better of me. I'm fortunate to be really happy about my dingeldong. I wouldn't do it completely random though.

7. Dude787 is a statistician about it.

Shotgun method.

Time efficiency; less likely to get a yes but takes less time on average per yes in theory (Well, not necessarily but that's the hope)

8. Seven_inch (nice username, bro) chocks it up to animal instincts.

I was on one of the smaller gone wild subreddits, and I got really turned on so much that it felt like my animal instincts kicked in and I didn't know what I was really doing. During the picture taking and sending process it was all my subconscious working.

I mean, I didn't think this while doing it but only after masturbating. You all know the feel after you masturbate you think more rationally? Yeah it's like that.

So to the other comments talking about "1 in 100" chance statistics. Well no for me that wasn't true. There's no way my stupid animal subconscious was thinking about statistics while sending a dick pic. I was just caught up in the moment, and she was a redditor anyway and I have no idea where she lives.

She did say thanks for the pic though, and seemed to appreciate it. Despite this I've never sent an unsolicited dick pic ever again

9. AnimalCrust just wants to be "seen."

I recently quit doing this, after about a year of sending them to 2-3 girls that i've hooked up with. It started when one girl on Tinder asked for my snapchat and was subtly asking for a dick pic, so I did it.

Then it got extremely addicting for some reason, so I kept doing it until she really got sick of me sending them and eventually stopped talking to me. But at that point it had become a fetish. So then I started talking to another girl on Tinder, and just talked dirty over text for a month. Then she got horny and asked to see my dick so I sent it, but like the other girl, i kept sending them just out of the blue afterwards, and she eventually got really disgusted. We did actually meet in between all of this and made out, but that was the only time.

I think what urges me to do it the most is pride in my body/dick. I have about 8 inches and I was working out every other day, so my body is/was in its prime. It was also somewhat of an artistic challenge trying to get the perfect pic of my body. Basically the same thing as the guys who post in /r/ladybonersgw

Another KEY ingredient here is edging. Sometimes I would wake up and start edging, and the horniness gets so bad that I just reach for my phone and had such a compelling urge to show a girl how horny I was. With snapchat, just the fact that you can see that your pic was marked as "seen" was good enough for me.

The entire time I knew it was a really sad thing to do and would ALWAYS regret it afterwards, but when you're incredibly horny and you can reach out to a girl with just a few taps of your phone, it was really hard to resist.

Oh and another aspect is obviously lack of sex in general. The first girl I started with I had sex with once, but it was long distance, so it never would have worked out but I still had sexual desires for her. I could have went out to bars more and tried my luck the normal way but I also had a lack of confidence and was just kind of lazy about it, and didnt want a relationship

So yeah, its a really complicated answer because its a combination of a lot of things. Feel free to AMA, this is an alt account anyways

10. csbysam uses it as a last resort.

If I am talking with a girl I'm not specifically trying to be just friends with and our conversation is either plateauing or staying platonic I'll shoot her a dick pic as a last resort sort of thing. Either it becomes sexual or she doesn't want to do anything with me. Either way I know where I stand and don't waste my time.

11. the_lost_cheeto just wants tit for tat/tit for dick.

Well, I do it for many reasons. One reason is because, if I like how she looks and I'm desperate enough. It is to try and get a nude. Fails most of the time, but when it happens it is amazing. Another reason is just because I am part voyeur. I walk around my house naked hoping someone will look in. I don't do it to scare people. I won't do much more than that. Even when people catch me or whatever I still walk around like normal. Also, I will jerk off where I might be seen. The feeling of being caught is awesome. The final reason is if they contact me first and I am going to town I show her what I am doing. If she is up for it I will play around. If she is not up for it, it save me time beating around the bush trying to get what I want at the time.
