Juvenile. Hilarious. Sexy. Intriguing. “Literally the worst thing ever.”
These are all terms people have used to describe one of the most controversial trends of the internet era: dick pics.
While the intentions and ramifications of dick pics are often shrouded in mystery, there’s one thing we can agree on:They’re everywhere.
Sometimes they come in the form of a joke, like the Subway worker in Ohio who put his dong on a footlong and got fired for it. Sometimes they spark some much-needed eroticism between two lovers in a long-distance relationship. And other times they land celebrities on the cover of tabloids while their career, reputation, and marriage all burn to the ground.
Dick pics are nothing short of a 21st century phenomenon. But the question remains: Are they a body-positive art form or a menace to society?
