It’s something many women will have experienced in their life time.
A man sending a photo of their penis that you did not ask for and certainly did not want to see.
For some reason, there are men out there who think it’s acceptable to do this to an unsuspecting woman – but it’s not.
The trick is working out how to respond to the picture – if you don’t just delete the thing the second it comes through and try and forget it ever happened.
Thankfully there’s a woman among us who has shared her own creative way of dealing with d*** pics, and unsurprisingly people on social media are loving it.
Ginger Banks from Scottsdale, Arizona, shared a screenshot on Twitter of a recent conversation she had with a man, during which he sent her a random photo of his genitals.
Thinking fast, the entertainer replied with: “Did you just send me a picture of a child penis?”
The man, clearly taken aback, said: “WTF no, what’s wrong with you?”
But Ginger didn’t stop there.
She told the anonymous contact that she would be reporting them for sending the image, before sending them a picture of the CyberTipline website for reporting incidents of child pornography.
Ginger wasn’t really going to send a tip, but it was enough to strike fear into the heart of the man – and many others.
Her post went viral, with more than 25,000 people sharing it and 113,000 people liking it.
People praised the idea and were quick to share their own ways of dealing with situations such as this.
“It’s these types of innovators that keep hope alive,” said one.
“Humanity has come so far,” commented another.
A third wrote: This is awesome. Seriously, I’m a guy and I have never figured out why they do this.”
“I dated a woman who kept the most recent one and sent it in reply to the next one she got. I thought that was creative,” a fourth revealed.
Someone else suggested an alternative response, which looked a lot more painful – an image of a kitchen tool used to chop up food such as hot dogs .
