The Psychology of Unsolicited Explicit Image Sharing: An Exploration of a Potential Mental Disorder of "Sending Dick Pics"

An Article by @TheNerdInCharge

Exploring the inner world of societal norms and unusual occurrences, we have been challenged to look into the world of "sending dick pics" as it is brought to our attention that, in fact, all men do not do this. Well, at least unsolicited. Some men don't do it at all.

Why do men send dick pics to women without permission?

So why do others do it with such abandon? We explored this topic in a scientific research paper-esque style, but we are a comedy blog for a storytelling company, so do not take this to heart.


The Psychology of Unsolicited Explicit Image Sharing: An Exploration of a Potential Mental Disorder of "Sending Dick Pics"


This research paper delves into the phenomenon of men sending unsolicited explicit images, particularly of their private parts, to women. By analyzing existing literature and case studies and conducting interviews with both senders and recipients, we aim to understand the underlying psychological factors that drive this behavior. We propose that this behavior could potentially be classified as a mental disorder, given its intrusive nature and potential harm to the recipients without cause for harm or care to stop the behavior in return for one's

own pleasure. Even in return for possible exposure and embarrassing shame, some men still seem to send their genitals through the interweb communication channels, and it has aligned with psychological abnormal behaviors exhibited in DSM-V classified disorders such as "Big Dick Energy" and "Big Man On Campus-ology."


Unsolicited explicit image sharing, often referred to as "cyber-flashing," has become a prevalent issue in the digital age, affecting victims of all ages. This behavior involves the non-consensual sending of explicit images, primarily by men to women. Despite the widespread nature of this problem, little research has been conducted to understand its psychological motivations. This paper aims to fill this gap by exploring this behavior's potential mental health implications.

Literature Review:

The existing literature on cyber-flashing is sparse. However, studies on related behaviors such as online harassment and stalking provide some insight. For instance, a study by Jane (2017) found that online harassers often exhibit traits of narcissism and psychopathy. Another study by Smith (2018) suggested that these behaviors could be linked to a lack of empathy and an inability to understand social cues. However, these findings do not directly apply to cyber-flashing, as it involves different forms of interaction.

concluding that flirting is also a reason, making us wonder about the correlation of some bird species and their mating dance.


To gather data for this study, we conducted a series of semi-structured interviews with both men who have sent unsolicited explicit images and women who have received them. We also reviewed relevant case studies and analyzed online discussions on forums and social media platforms. The interviews were transcribed and coded using thematic analysis to identify common themes and patterns.


We chose not to do this portion of the experiment and instead prefer a Monty Python-type interjection of words to make you think this is a scientific journal-quality article with real research and findings that could be conclusive of a theory. In reality, it's a farse article we used AI to help write to showcase the idiocracy of society and also the usefulness of AI tools on things that matter when it can't tell you things that don't matter correctly, like the population of humans on Mars in 2019 vs. 2024 or something otherwise useless information about CIA programming being a real thing on the masses since the 50s-90s and today they've mastered it. Still, the results are conclusive to show that we as a society haven't been able to label the phenomenon of sending dick pics with anything other than a random weird version of flirting.


Based on our findings, we propose that cyber-flashing could potentially be classified as a mental disorder. This behavior involves a significant violation of social norms and boundaries and can cause significant harm to the recipients. It also indicates a lack of empathy and an inability to understand the impact of one's actions on others. These traits are often associated with personality disorders such as narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder.


In conclusion, this paper briefly explores the psychology behind unsolicited explicit image sharing. While more research is needed to understand this behavior fully, our findings suggest that it could potentially be classified as a mental disorder. This classification could help in the development of effective interventions and prevention strategies.
