    some hot guy asks you to unlock your private pictures and so you do and then they don't open their pictures. Grrrr. When will I learn?

    Whereas Miss Gay Manners would find it very cheeky for someone to ASK to see another's private photos, and not wait for the privilege to be offered, she definitely feels you have every right to respond with a crisp "You first!" And you still have the right to decline afterwards.

    I find it annoying when someone just sends you the link to their private pics without talking to you or your ever laying eyes on their public ones first.icon_mad.gif

    Because I'd rather know who the person is before I open up "R" or "X" rated ones Caslon.

    Sometimes my reaction isn't very positive or even
    "so".....icon_neutral.gif

    I made a guy mad once because I didn't have any 'private' pictures to show him. I apologized, I guess he thought that I didn't want to 'share' with him. Honest answer is that I just haven't taken any pictures of myself in the buff or near buff.

    Kansan, Evil...got one of those yesterday. I think some trolls use the saturation bombing approach, see who bites, and close the deal. They don't even read profiles (mine says no face no response).

    Then again, there are some real sweet babyfaces out there that occasionally astound you with their H U G E N E S S.
    Red, maybe your so-called rude pix are just too rude for the vanilla masses.
    Of course, I can't really tell you for sure until you've unleashed your RUDENESS into my mailbox.

    What are rude pix for, exactly? Are you meant to trade 'em like baseball cards? Then what? Create a collage-of-cock screensaver?

    To funny.

    It doesn't happen to much here, but, on Craigslist...

    sending penis pics first...it SO classless.

    And, of course, there's the insecure guys that lash out.

    One feature that I think would be nice, and IRC, and gay.com, AOL, and so on have it, would be Total Permanent Ignore. It's awesome.

    I think the worst pics to get in your mailbox are the sphincter shots. Especially as an introductory picture, it just ain't pretty.

    Yeah, I can understand why these intrusions can be annoying, but what about the guys that are new to this site and otherwise not very computer savvy, for example, me. I was looking at a forum recently and saw a response I liked and so looked at the guys profile. He was very handsome, so, I clicked on unlock private photos, not yet realizing that I was unlocking my private photos which since I don't have any photos yet, was an exercise in futility. I wonder how many other guys have done this!! (Oh, by the way, since I can not remember who this was, if you are the person, let me know and I will lock back up the privates that don't exist yet.)

    Oh yeah, and I don't have any photos because, being typically male, when I recently bought a digital camera, I neglected to read the fine print or the directions and since I still have Windows 98 program I can not download any pictures into my computer. I have been saving to update to 2000 or NT. Just yesterday it occurred to me that I might be able to do this at an internet cafe and it turns out that I can so I am now preparing pics. All this explanation to let you know that there may be extenuating circumstances for not having photos other than being thought of by oneself as ugly.

    alex: you might be able to just transfer the pictures directly from your camera to your computer without any software. Just got to "My Computer" and look for your digi camera, and then open it. Just look around in the files for your pictures and then move them. Just don't delete anything else, heh.


    As for the OP's comment, I can't say that it's happened to me (as I don't have private pics) but I have gotten a proposition for sex as the first line when someone chats with me. I mean, come on, lol.

    I'll join in on HndsmKansan's tune. I've written back to people who have done this saying "Thanks, but I really wish you had said hello to me first." I'm sure that may cause me to be thought of as a prudish son-of-a-bitch by some, but I can't really think of a better or more polite way to express to someone that even online, I have boundaries. And if there is one, I hope someone will tell me what it is... but for whatever it's worth, the people who have gotten that email from me are often pretty cool with that response and say things like "You're right... sorry." I even managed to forge a really nice friendship with a guy who unlocked his private photos for me before he even got to know me, and he said that since then he's been a little more discriminate about who he allows to see his private photos.

    I also feel obliged to say that as many great (not to mention physically beautiful) men that I have met on this site, there are some real psychos on this site too, and the last thing I would want is for those psychos to have naked pictures of me... or to have them sending me naked pictures of themselves. Call it a security measure, I guess.

    Whatever.

    I imagine some guys must get off on showing complete strangers pictures of their willies. If someone wants to send me pics unsolicited, then thats cool as I don't find it boring or offensive.

    Red, you should better than show your bits first. Let them get theirs out before you see if it's worth you giving them a flash or not.

    HERE! HERE! HK:

    The same thing happened to me, some guy I had never exchanged emails with
    Sent me an unlocking his private photos for me.

    I never un-locked his photos and he is and was a HOTTY!
    I was thrown off by the fact that this is the first impression that he wanted to make.

    It may sound prudish. What can I say I am what I am!
