The Gentleman’s Guide to Proper Dick Pic Etiquette

The invention of photography has given us the ability to take snapshots of real bodies in real time.

People have been taking nude photographs since the invention of the daguerreotype in the 1830s. Erotic photos were very clandestine throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, although not as rare as we like to think. Our forebears were doing the same freaky shit we do today, but to capture it on camera was a forbidden pleasure mainly for the bold and curious.

Nude photos of the Victorian and Edwardian eras carry a distinguished charm that is mostly absent from the nude photos of today. As technology has advanced and become more accessible, there is less focus on artistry and greater desire for immediate gratification.

It is perfectly okay to take pictures of your dick, but with great technology comes great responsibility. You can’t just point, shoot, and send. There is an art to taking good quality dick pics, and proper conduct for sharing these images.

A gentleman of fine repute must understand the rules and techniques to appropriately display his generative organ to consenting adults.

I. Consent and Safety

First and foremost, consent is always the number one rule. One must ask for and receive consent before sharing photos. Consent must be freely given every time you want to share, so don’t assume that it’s always okay.

Do not randomly send unsolicited photos to anyone. Do not bother people who are not interested. No means no.

The only exception is if all parties have clearly established that pics can be shared any time, but that is something that needs to be discussed and agreed upon, and is subject to change. As a general rule, it is always a good idea to ask first.

Your safety is equally as important. Do you feel comfortable with this transaction? Do you trust the person on the other side and know that they’re completely legit? You are not obligated to share anything, and neither is the other person. Make sure you feel confident in the situation before proceeding, and you also have the right to change your mind at any time.

II. Courtesy and Respect

Respect the other person’s feelings and boundaries, and honor their time and availability. Approach the situation with zero expectations, and be prepared for the possibility that things might not turn out the way you would prefer.

Be assertive but not aggressive. You want to present yourself as confident, but you don’t want to come across as cocky, pushy, desperate, or off-putting.

Always be polite. Express your gratitude. Don’t be a jerk, and don’t do anything you’ll regret later.

At the same time, make sure that your feelings and boundaries are treated with the same courtesy and respect. If someone is making you uncomfortable or giving you a weird vibe, you are not obligated to continue the conversation.

No one’s nudes are worth being treated with disrespect.

III. Be Honest

Honesty is always the best policy. Be honest about who you are, your intentions, what you like, and what you don’t like.

Do not exaggerate the size of your penis or lie about other aspects of yourself. Dishonesty is not impressive and does you no favors. No one likes deception and false advertising.

Being real and sincere demonstrates that you are trustworthy, which will benefit you in the long run. Just be yourself.

IV. Take Your Time

Always follow the correct order of things. Be sure to establish communication and trust before anything. Engage in pleasantries and formalities and let the conversation progress naturally.

It is important to remember that every person is different and every interaction will develop as it is meant to.

There is no need to hurry. Rushing the process can actually reduce your chances of success. It is far better to work your way up to the pic exchange. As the conversation progresses, try introducing a little dirty talk and seductive teasing, if this is appropriate.

The objective is to build anticipation before the big reveal. A bit of foreplay can ensure that your trouser snake is given a proper introduction.

V. Hard and Soft

Online guides to dick pics often suggest that you should only take erect pics and discourage soft pics.

I highly disagree.

While it is true that many people prefer to see a hard cock, there are many who also enjoy seeing soft cocks, sometimes even more so. There can be quite a contrast between flaccid and erect, and both are equally beautiful.

A true phallus admirer sees the beauty in the entire cycle of arousal, from completely relaxed to throbbing hard, and all the various degrees in between. Taking photos at different stages of arousal is an honest representation of what your penis looks like and what it can do.

You should feel comfortable with your penis in all of its forms and recognize its beauty for yourself.

VI. Hygiene and Grooming

People of the late 19th and early 20th centuries were obsessed with bathing and fitness, and the nude body was often presented as an exemplary model of health.

The modern gentleman should also strive to display his manhood at peak hygiene and vigor. In other words, wash your genitals. It’s important to make a good first impression, so be certain that your cock is vibrant, fresh, and immaculate.

There are people who enjoy the unwashed and a certain amount of filth, but it’s in bad taste to share such images unless the other person expresses interest and gives consent. Otherwise, just keep it clean.

Many online guides say that you should “tidy up” your pubic hair before taking dick pics, but I find that highly unnecessary. Unless manscaping is something you do already, there’s no need to modify your pubes just to impress someone.

Whether you’re rocking a wild crotch jungle or completely epilated, the most important thing is that you’re comfortable with your body. Be authentic and just do what you would do normally.

VII. Lighting

Lights! Camera! Action! Penis!

Proper lighting is the key to success. Finding the balance between too dark and too bright can be tricky, but it’s worth the effort to create a quality product that leaves a lasting impression.

Since you are both the photographer and the model, it is up to you to experiment and find what light sources work the best.

Natural sunlight may be sufficient, or the soft glow of a candle or fireplace could create the perfect mood. Perhaps the overhead lighting in the bathroom is the best option, or that lamp by your bedside. If you are able, perhaps you’d like to invest in fancy lighting for more professional-looking photos, but it’s more important to make the best with what you have.

Try shining the light directly on your cock, from different angles, or combine multiple light sources at different positions. Play around with different compositions of light and shadow.

Camera phones have a built-in flash, which can be useful if no other options are available, but you are pretty much at the mercy of its limitations and have very little control over the end result. It is better to use an external light source whenever possible.

There are many options. With a bit of trial and error, you will discover the optimal conditions to show off your manhood.

VIII. Strike a Pose

Your penis looks exquisite and well-lit, and now you’re ready to take some pictures. Instead of staying in one position, try taking several photos from different angles. Take a few shots from above, underneath, from the sides, and as many different perspectives as you can.

Try a wider shot that shows more of your body. How much you want to include is up to you. A bit of torso is always nice. Including your hand in the shot is also a good idea.

You may want to show off your ass or try a few photos of just your balls. Don’t be afraid to highlight other sexy parts of your body. You don’t have to share these photos if you don’t want to, but try mixing things up and taking different types of pics for your own enjoyment.

I recommend having a few full body shots that show your face. There are far too many headless horsemen out there who are afraid to reveal themselves.

Try different poses. Sitting, standing, kneeling, lying down. Don’t hesitate to move around and work for the camera. Prop your leg up on a chair, sit on the floor and spread your legs, stretch your body, do some yoga, dance, feel alive!

Many guys enjoy taking close-ups, but one must exercise care to take them correctly. Extreme close-ups can make your penis look distorted and unnatural, and may cause the camera to go out of focus. Blurry pictures are no good. Find an adequate distance for improved quality.

IX. Scenery

Always be aware of your surroundings when taking photos. You may not think it matters, but what’s going on in the background makes a difference.

Most people don’t care to see the clutter in your bedroom, or the fact that you haven’t cleaned your bathroom in three weeks. No judgment, I’m guilty of both of those things.

Do not take pictures sitting on the toilet. I know a lot of guys like to do this, but it’s gross and leaves a bad impression. However, snapping a photo of your dick while standing at a urinal can be naughty and hot.

Make sure that what’s happening in the background doesn’t distract from the main focus: your beautiful genitals. A neutral backdrop is most effective, such as your bed or a plain wall. Bathtub photos can be fun.

Also consider a background color that contrasts your skin tone to draw more attention to your member.

Outdoor photos are always advisable whenever possible. Penises and nature are meant to be together. A wooded area or beach creates a wonderful scene.

If you are clever, you can incorporate your environment and decor into the overall aesthetic of the photo. For example, flowers and foliage can serve as the perfect accent to frame your cock and balls.

X. Be Creative and Have Fun

Nude pics can be a great opportunity to show off your creativity. Anyone can take a boring old dick pic, but you are a gentleman of refined taste! Your penis is a masterpiece!

Clothing is a great way to express yourself. This can be your favorite pair of jeans, a business suit, a leather harness, or whatever turns you on. If you’re in the mood, a silly costume might be a fun idea. You don’t always have to take yourself seriously.

Cock rings and other kink and fetish gear can help showcase your family jewels. And if you enjoy jockstraps and fun underwear, now is the time to show them off!

You can design an elaborate photo shoot centered around your dick. Utilizing props, decor, and accessories can be fun. Experiment with mirrors and reflections. Other household items like a book, pillow, or piece of jewelry might add a special touch to your photo.

It is also fun to create photos with different themes. Holidays such as birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween, and Christmas are all rife with potential. A pop culture reference might win you some bonus points if the recipient appreciates the reference.

One thing I advise against is using a ruler or other object to brag about your size. Not only is this obnoxious, it is also incredibly tacky. I promise you, no one wants to see your dick next to a can of Lysol. It’s not a good look.

Also, abstain from using filters and effects, unless they are of genuine benefit to your photo. Sometimes it’s okay to adjust the contrast or color saturation, but be prudent to avoid overdoing it. Photos that are heavily edited may come across as disingenuous.

Whatever you do, have fun and be yourself! Ultimately, it’s not just the penis but the whole person that’s the most important. Let your personality shine through!

XI. Penis Portfolio

Variety is the spice of life, which is why I highly recommend taking lots of photos.

It is a good idea to amass a library of pictures from different times and locations. If you have options, you can be selective about which pics you share with particular people. It also helps to avoid sharing the same pics multiple times with the same person, which I see often. Always strive to take more!

Don’t bombard someone with pics unless that’s what they want. Try to match their contributions pic for pic, unless you’re feeling generous.

Ration your pics so you have more to share another time. There’s no sense in revealing your entire collection at once. Gradually revealing smaller portions will help ensure the recipient remains interested.

Lastly, please have recent photos. Those pics from ten years ago might be nice, but bodies change over time. For the sake of maintaining honesty, keep your penis portfolio up to date as much as possible.
