So, I've asked Brandon from My Own Private Idaho to grace my blog with his wit! If you're unfamiliar with Mr. Lost in Idaho, he's been in the blogging game for less than a year, but has managed to attract more followers than a Kardashian. Mainly because of the number of topics he discusses along with the Tosh.0-esque humor that goes with it. Well, I'll let him do his thing...
Scarlett Johansson’s recent headlines) We, as a society, have gone from phone sex to text-message sex to sexting (sending nude pictures to each other) all in the course of a few years.
But this isn’t news to you. You’ve probably done it. I have. It’s fun, sexy, and (when done right) a great way to spice things up.
What I would like to help with, however, is making sure you don’t look like an idiot doing it. Guys, this post is for you, to help you sext with the best of them.
Guys don’t have a lot going for them. I’m an overweight guy, so taking a picture of my beer belly or man boobs is going to scare a woman away. I have one part that looks sexy, and only one.
I’ll give you a hint… if you ask TOAR, it looks like raw chicken…
Yes, the man muscle. The disco stick, the pocket rocket, the one-eyed wonder weasel. Whatever you’ve named yours, it is your greatest asset in the sexting game. And if you can take the right picture, you can impress your friend on the receiving end, to make her *on* the receiving end.
A word of warning: 4 pictures out of 5 will look unflattering. You know the saying “Objects in mirror may seem smaller?” Yeah. Like that.
Learn the art of angles. Learn to take up the entire screen. Try to make it seem powerful. Intimidating. Something your text-mate would actually desire.
I’m 5’10”. My trouser-tackle is one-tenth of the size of the rest of me, and even smaller when asleep. (I’m a grower, not a shower…) Add a gut to the mix, and I could come across as looking like I’m packing a tater-tot, or hung like a Crayola. If I’m sexting a girl, trying to woo her into bed, she isn’t going to be turned on if it looks like she’s not going to be able to feel a thing…
Long story short, use trial and error. If you have a female friend with an objective opinion, ask for feedback. Or, when in doubt, watch this video from Saturday Night Live:
Next guest post... TOAR. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
