Stranger than Fiction

WARNING! Contains a link to adult content!

My blog is PG rated because, apart from the occasional little swear, I don’t post adult content. Today only, I’m posting a link to another site with a post having a photograph of a totally naked man on it. So if you are under 18 or will be shocked by such an eyeball scorcher, please DO NOT click on the link. The reason that I’m posting this is because I think that this blogger is actually doing a really good thing. Generally when I get this kind of stuff on any of my sites, I delete, report, and block the sender. It never occurred to me to name and shame any of the perv trolls I’ve come across, but now I’m thinking that in some cases it might not be a bad idea. Maybe if they get seen by interweb users who are not scared or intimidated by their gross little attacks, and possibly laughed and scorned under tables all over, they might be a little more careful who they send pics of their willies to.

I’m not sure whether my one one star review for Fly Birdie could be called a troll review, because that reader could have genuinely hated the story, so I’m totally cool with it. Other than that I believe all the reviews I have are genuine, so I can’t claim to know how it feels to be review trolled. But the flasher trolls – well – I’ve had my fair share I reckon. Some of them are worrying, because you wonder what else they’re getting up to online, and it’s pretty obvious that some of those pervs would be properly dangerous if they ever found out where you lived.

But then there are some that, while their behaviour is cringeworthy, they just make me laugh myself off my chair. I’m going to post the link to the first blog post I opened today, but I repeat – before you open it, be warned that it contains a selfie of a completely starkers man – totally in the buff – so DO NOT click on the link if you don’t want that sort of thing burned into your retinas for a bit. Personally, I’m still crying a little from laughing so hard. Seriously guy – what were you thinking?

I grew up in Johannesburg. Back in the eighties, Hillbrow was filled with the coolest shops and restaurants, and generally the in place to be as far as fun was concerned – just as long as you didn’t tell your parents. In the afternoons it was also the place of choice for flashers to hang out. I never went there alone though – I was always with a group of friends, so generally when these brave guys leapt out of doorways and alleyways to show the world their awesome wares, all they got every time was teen screaming, running away, and then lots of laughter and jeering. This had to be what they expected – right? Or did some smelly old cretin really expect to be pounced on by a group of teenaged girls overcome by lust at the very sight of their dangly bits?

I really wonder what the guy who sent his 18+ naked selfie to Feeling the Fiction was expecting. When I opened the post, I was totally not expecting to see naked guy, so the first thing I felt was offended and grossed out, but after reading her post I was laughing my head off. But then, recalling all the other eyeball scorchers I’ve been dealt while innocently sipping my tea and catching up on the interweb, it occurred to me that while I’m laughing now, this sort of thing is absolutely criminal and can be really damaging if received by any sort of innocent.

We are all the product of our life experiences, and I suppose that I’ve seen enough to find this particular perv pathetic enough to laugh at, but I wonder. Now that the flashers, who in the eighties had to risk being caught and arrested or beaten up by offended groups of ladies, have the anonymity of the internet to cruise around, what else are they getting up to? There has to be something deeply twisted in the mind of anyone who thinks that it is acceptable to send naked pictures of themselves to total strangers, whether a magnifying glass is needed or not. Maybe blacking out his face was too kind though – if you’re going to send pictures of yourself like that to complete strangers you totally deserve to have people know who you are.

      I remember those legends too – in fact it’s really cool to think back on those times I haven’t thought about for years. Haunted houses and crazed murderers – there really was one disturbed young guy who used to lurk on his balcony and try and pee on passersby. Never told my mom about it though – amazing the secrets kids sometimes keep. 😀 Love and massive HUGS to you my lovely Kizzy! xxxx

    I can’t comment on the site but I fell over laughing. ‘My dick is hard’…………..really? What the hell size is it when not aroused? I’m trying very hard to feel sorry for the poor sap but failing miserably. BTW – you owe me a new keyboard, mine just drowned in coffee.

      They’re really quite offensive. When you’re just zooming around opening notifications and so on it’s always a shocker when you see these things. I find most of them really funny though & generally send them a bit of snark before reporting them, but I know that quite a lot of people would be horribly intimidated.

        I’m guessing it’s more of a ‘guy on girl’ type of trolling. Never heard of female flashers and you said this was like an on-line equivalent.

    Hmmm … is that the best he’s got? You do have to wonder what a person like that is thinking … I mean, has he looked into the mirror lately? Oh, wait, he’s just taking selfies. Whatever. I imagine some cybercop coming around, waving his hands, “Nothing to see here, folks. Just go on home.”
    Thanks for the alert, Jo 🙂

    My dear Jo, all I can say about this post is:
    a) I LOVE The Sweet (really takes me back to those old school discos, had a major crush on Brian Connelly) so thanks so much for sharing the video clip; and
    b) That guy is a complete and utter dick. Pardon the pun. Oh, maybe if he had one…ha, but I’ll stop right there… 😉
    Thanks for highlighting the life and times of these pathetic pervs Jo. Wish we could stop them…

    Oh Jo, you so make me laugh! I was more of a Glitter Band girl back then and so an arch enemy of the Sweet fans! Even dated the drummer from the band once or twice but I don’t tell anyone! Not had the courage to click the link yet but the comments and your post are giving me a fair idea. Keep exposing the trolls! ‘Scuse the pun.

I used to just click Join every time anyone invited me to a Google community, until the day I opened the page to pics of some sort of swingers club for older people – wow – I’m very careful these days.
