- The qualities that are attributed to men at the sight of a dickpic change according to the size of their penis.
- The use of webcams for the purpose of sexual exposure doubled among young people between February 2020 and June 2021, from 16% to 28%.
according to a survey conducted by YouGov in 201770% of women have already received unsolicited dickpics, that is, the photo of a penis sent via a smartphone This practice has greatly increased with the health crisis. In fact, between February 2020 and May 2021, there was a significant increase in the sharing of images of a sexual nature as dickpics: +11 points among young people aged 18 to 34, or 25%, according to the French Institute of Public Opinion (Ifop).
Imagine the personality of a photo of a penis.
A study published in the journal sexuality and culture explored this phenomenon. “Due to this increase in digital sexual behavior, the present study aims to understand what assumptions about potential romantic or sexual partners are made from receiving sexually explicit content.”, say the researchers. In other words, what do we imagine of a man’s personality when we receive a snapshot of his penis?
During their experiment, the scientists showed 106 people, including 80% women and 20% men, photographs of 24 different penises in terms of length, width, or even the amount of hair. Once the cliché was observed, the participants had to say what they thought of the person’s personality.
Big penis: more outgoing and better in bed
Results: Participants found large penises more attractive and imagined men to be more outgoing and better in bed. Instead, for the smaller sexes, it was the opposite. For thinner penises, they were associated with a neurotic personality. Finally, the participants judged better the sexes who wore their hair shaved. “I think the big lesson to be learned from this study is that people are judged and evaluated when they share photos of their genitalia.” Thomas R. Brooks, an author of the study, explained in the journal psypost.
“More opportunities to make assumptions about you”
“However, the story goes far beyond “big penis = good”he continues. What we discovered is that the picture of a penis contributes to the implicit theory about that person, which includes the supposed personality, behavior and other attributes. When you send a photo, you give the other person more opportunities to make assumptions about you.”the researchers concluded.
