I know I'm not supposed to send dick pics. At least that's what everyone's advising post-Weinergate. But what if a girl I'm seeing wants a dick pic?
If you've ever attempted to navigate the minefield that is online dating, the chances are you'll have received a dick pic. They usually come as a bit of a surprise, tend to be fairly early on in conversation, and normally give you all the clarification you need to sack the boy off because clearly he has no social skills.

A few months ago, I had a round of these conversations with the usual suspects in my life. Think of it as a dick Overton window: a continuum of acceptability, but in this case, one that varies from person to person. Boyfriend dicks have a measurable component, of course, but not a consistent one.
My friend broke up with her boyfriend the other day because of a butt dial. Or rather he broke up with her because, after years and years of being together, he finally got a clear view of what women's brains look like when they find themselves hunkered down in a safe haven with other people who have boobs. Which is to say: absolute filth.
Welcome to Tough Love. I simply want to give you the tools you need to enrich your damn lives. So, my question is basically this: Did I screw up this amazing perfect friendship by confiding my feelings to her? Was this a mistake?
I have to say, it felt like I was living inside an episode of Sex and the City. His dick is like a gherkin! Like most women, I carry around my own small-penis story, to be shared at moments precisely like this.
