    Hi all,
    Long time lurker, but had a bit of a funny situation so I thought I'd post!
    I met a girl the other night who I brought home and when she saw my penis she wanted to photograph it (on camera phone). I said no (after all, we had just met) and figured that was the end of it but yesterday was getting messages insisting that I send pictures! Lacking the immediate facility to do so, but being well aware of how digital information stays 'out there' forever, I'm not sold on the idea. Has anyone else had a similar situation?

    Camera-phones, sophisticated high-resolution consumer-priced digital cameras, webcams. These all represent a quantum shift in cultural habits that bears serious study. At no time in history has capturing images been so easy. Before the Polaroid camera, which, remember was relatively expensive and not that common, capturing images of the naked human body in states of arousal was nigh-on impossible unless you had private access to a photographic darkroom. After the Polaroid had developed itself, even then it was a unique artefact, virtually un-copyable. Contrast that with the instantaneous and near-infinite reproduction of a digital image via the Internet.
    Now, for the first time in history, it is not uncommon to see an explicit image via the internet of someone even before seeing their face or, indeed, knowing their name.
    This paradigm cultural shift has immense consequences for human relationships that we have not even begun to explore.

    At least a couple of the photos in my gallery came from "casual" acquaintances. Like the previous post said, digital cameras have made this pretty simple and an easy way to try something just a little bit naughty. Plus, some people like to show off what they did over the weekend. Heck, my current SO jokes that most of her friends had seen my cock a couple of times before they even met me.

    I could virtually not agree more with 9 x 7. I am firmly convinced that the invention and all but global distribution of camera phones will once be regarded as the beginning of something huge, hopefully not the end. The very concept of privacy itself is in grave danger, and not from the NSA or whatever your average paranoiac is afraid of, but from Motorola, Nokia etc. Ten years ago, you could sit in a café, in public, but by yourself, and you were pretty safe from being observed against your will in any way, and certainly safe from being photographed. If someone would have walked up to you with a camera in order to take pictures of you, it would have caused an uproar. People have been chased down streets for this, and rightfully so. Today you are potentially under surveillance as soon as there is a second person in the room with you who owns a cellphone. In cafés, on the street, in a club, at the urinal... anyone can take pictures of you and even film you at any time, without drawing any kind of attention to them. A cellphone is just about the least suspicious object to hold in one's hand.
    I admit that this development may also have certain benefits - in totalitarian societies, the digital camera may turn out to be a powerful weapon against repression. All in all, however, I think it will affect our culture in a catastrophic way, and should definitely be the subject of an ongoing public debate.

    GREAT post nicky9x6!
    I was thinking the exact same thing. Up to this point, developing photos of yourself was somewhat a "big production", nowadays you can do it all in the comfort of your own home with a color printer.
    Not to meniton the fact that taking photo's have become alot more stealthy (i.e. Phone cameras, watch camera, mini digi cams, etc....)
    Times have changed.......

    Unfortunately, with the advent of technology, there is the lack of respect for ones' personal privacy. Using technology responsibly is something MOST people do. However, there are those that choose to push the limits . . . i.e. camera phones in gym locker rooms, etc. . . .

    A gym SHOULD NOT have to post signs, stating "NO CELL PHONES IN CHANGE AREAS ALLOWED!" . . . however, that is what is happening acroos the continent. The actions of a few, mar things for the many. Then the next thing to happen is government intervention - all in the guise of "protecting our rights" . . . . .

    Can you imagine if (God forbid) something were to happen to your wife that required a police officer to go through her purse looking for ID.

    Who cares? I'm not freaked out when someone sees my cock -- or a picture of it. All men have 'em and mine's not a bad specimen.

    Sure, I'm been photographed by casual friends. Most recently, a guy who massages me took a picture of my hard cock with his camera phone. But wait! What if he runs around town telling people it's me? What if my boyfriend finds out?! ooooooooooh. nooooooooooo. ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    Big f-in' deal.

    Nude photos really hurt Tommy Lee's career. Vanessa Williams' too. Oh, then there's Madonna -- ruined her. Jude Law is finished. Paula Jones and Gennifer Flowers were just bimbos before -- now they're bimbos with a spread in Playboy. Of course, they're killing Jenna Jamison and Peter North. No one paid any attention to Burt Reynolds once he posed for Cosmo.

    Maybe if John Kerry whipped out his monster at some rally in Ohio, he'd be president today...

    Let's not forget Schwarzenegger (sp?), Brad Pitt and Paris Hilton. They've all been photographed nekkid and they're still famous for things other than their bathing suits. But for the life of me I'm not sure what Paris Hilton is famous for. :shrug:

    I think it's just a matter of your personal comfort level. If you think it would creep you out to find your nude pics turning up online, DON'T DO IT!!! If you wouldn't really care one way or the other, go for it.

    I remember feeling fairly secure here when I first joined, and posted some almost nudes. I was quickly informed that my pics were on another site by someone else claiming to be me. After some ill-ease, I decided I really didn't give a fuck, as I am not in a career in which I could be hurt by something like that. However, for those who are, or for those who just feel better with a bit more privacy, act with prudence! Of our nearly 9,000 members, only a few hundred post. We have no idea where our pics could end up.

    @Ponypete- I think when you're rich, you can be famous just for that. Obviously it's not talent or acting ability!

    Well, it's very simple really. Having rich parents. Talent won't get you very far in the media.

    My god, the incriminating pictures of me are definitely floating around... It all started on one drunk night and a guy friend of mine had a camera phone... I have no clue who's seen them, whether the guy still has them, or whether they're on the net, and honestly, I don't care. If someone is masturbating to pictures of me, then damn, I feel special... :shrug:
