Women are not aroused by “man-part” pictures
Summary of story from The Washington Post, June 2, 2011
Over the weekend, it was revealed that Representive Anthony Weiner (Democrat, New York), or someone pretending to be Weiner, allegedly sent a photo of his bulging briefs to one of his Twitter followers.
Weiner has maintained that his Twitter account was hacked in a prank.
Over the years, a handful of famous men — and a boatload full of unfamous, Craigslisty men — have landed in the news for sending women photos of their artfully framed packages.
A general note for men: Broaden your seduction techniques! Women do not enjoy seeing photos of bulging briefs via Twitter.
When polled, women said they would prefer to see – a photo of a made bed, folded laundry or a picture of a man, sweaty, cleaning out the storm drain.
“There is a great diversity in what women find arousing. If you look at the empirical literature, it does indicate that the majority of women are not as aroused by pictures of naked man-parts” says Marta Meana, a renowned psychologist who studies women’s sexual function at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas.
Women, research increasingly shows, are nuanced sexual beings whose arousal depends on context, mood and a whole bunch of things they aren’t even aware of.
Men do tend to find the equivalent naked pictures of women titillating. When they send women photos of their genitalia, they are engaging in a sort of sexting golden rule: I think it’s hot, so you should, too.
WVoN comment: Honesty and poetry do much more for me than a naked shaft.
