Four women have banded together to take the stash of dick pics they received over the summer and channel them into art (as long as you consider a blurry, up-close shot of a penis art). Vice reports that the show, entitled “Show Me More: A Collection of DickPix,” will be like a walkabout of NYC penises, with 300 dickpix framed and featured at a Brooklyn gallery.




The show sounds pretty awesome if you enjoy seeing hyper-zoomed-in images of dicks, but there is one niggling fact about it: the photos are being published without the men’s knowledge or consent. Additionally, the pictures weren’t gathered from knowing participants who were honestly solicited for pics of their junk; instead, they were compiled by the artist collective Femme Future, who didn’t let on what they were for, and one of whom even posed as a gay man on Grindr to collect 150 dick pics.


It’s pretty obvious what the outrage would look like were the genders in this story reversed, and revenge porn–the practice of publishing naked photos of someone online without their consent–is ethically unacceptable no matter your gender. But in response, the artists claim they’re doing it as a reaction to the feelings of assault women can feel when they randomly receive an unsolicited dickpic. They’re also posting each framed penis photo next to a picture of their own genitals, and there will be no names or faces that will make it possible to identify the dick owner.


Of course, there is the question of legality in posting a naked photo of someone without their consent. Vice reports that “if your dick appears in the show and you were misled about the solicitor’s true identity you have a chance at legal retribution.”


Regardless, the show is slated to debut August 23rd, and if you’ve sent a dickpic to anyone–anyone–this summer, yours could end up hanging on the wall for all to admire.

If this were just done from people sexually harassing others by sending unsolicited penis pictures, that would be one thing, since this would be a good way to give the women some way to take power back after their harassment as well as possibly put some deterrence in to prevent it in the future. But some of what they did sounds like borderline entrapment, which is never good. If they actually solicited some of these pictures (I'm unclear about that operation on the gay forum) then that's not even in the same room as good.

Puh-leeze . . . blurry celltel closeups of anonymous genitalia? 
Unless the owners of the bits are identified in some way I doubt that even they could recognize their own.   
Seems to me the artists are helping the owners achieve their aim . . . "Lookit me, lookit me, I gotta dinkie . . . and a cell phone . . . but no brain . . . "

In the end everything will be ok. If not, that's not the end

My name is Ralph J.   Some of my friends call me R J.  I have been a nude enthusiast for a few years, but my family is not. I have to be nude only when alone or when I first get up un the mornings. I like music and have taken piano lessons. I like classical music.
