Boy, what a ugly morning, how can you see in all this light???
Last night was a fun night as I had dinner in New Hope with a bunch of the clan. It was the usual suspects. With a few new faces. I took the Professor with me and this was his first time meeting the clan. Everything went well till my one friend, like clock work said, "Wanna see my cock"? Yes. Alas, I have a friend who likes to show people his goods upon meeting them, as if this was how they learned how to shake hands in his house, a business card of sorts.
We were all at the Raven after dinner and we were standing there, and he called friends over to huddle around before he asks. "Do you want to see my cock?" Everyone always rushes -- and let's be honest here... he really carries a nice piece but, at this point, a regular member of the clan , I'm tired of seeing it. He's like one of those annoying mothers who insist on posting photos of their adorable newborn baby. To makes matters worst he was interested in another of my friends, not to mention the Professor was caught off guard, although he knows my group can be a hand full.
But it's not just the pushy flashers of the world that are the problem, For those of you out there on Grindr or Scruff, or hook up sites know that your goods are just as necessary of visual information as your face. It's sometimes the first thing people ask for. "Hey interested? you got pics" doesn't mean "I would like to see a photo you sitting proper on a armchair nibbling on a cucumber sandwich." It signifies that it's time to unzip and show what you are blessed with. This is likely a picture of your penis taken at the most flattering angle or state.
Having a picture of your penis on your phone is the closest thing that gay men get to having a membership card in the community. I'm no innocent, I have them too, but only my beaus or objects of flirtation get to see those. To me, a dick isn't a lead. Your penis isn't the first thing I want to know about you, unless I plan a one night stand, or else I'm only ever going to think about you as the guy with the.. insert adjective here.. dick. You then become secondary to the organ, something I'm only going to be looking at maybe 30% of the time. Do you really want your penis to be the most relevant thing about you? And it amazes me when out, I have observed guys sharing cock pics in big groups. Something new?
A penis reveal is something you work toward. A penis reveal is what happens after a long night of playing cat and mouse. A penis reveal is the thing that comes after unbearable tension and negotiation of sexual boundaries, whether that's after a first date, a third date or randomly meeting you while stinking drunk in a bar. Not that I know anything about that!!!!! But no matter the path that's chosen, a little build-up is important. The cock is the cherry on the dessert, not a half-price appetizer from TGI Fridays!!!
Now don't get me wrong, I have no problem looking at cock pics, I love them as much as the next queen, and when were at the beach house, a pool party or camping, it's a matter of time till were all running around naked. But when I'm interested in someone I do like the build up. And isn't it nice to find out something about him instead and figure out who the man attached to the cock is? Meanwhile my friend phones today and said he wouldn't be calling my friend the flasher back. Although the cock was nice he said, but that pretty much killed his chances. So, has our goods becoming a calling card?
