New App Offers Ingenious Option For Guys Who Are Too Shy To Send Dick Pics

Sex Heroes is an ongoing HuffPost Q&A series by Voices Editorial Director Noah Michelson that explores the lives and experiences of individuals who are challenging, and thereby changing, mainstream culture’s understanding of sex and sexuality.  In our modern age of online dating and internet hook ups, dick pics, for better or for worse, have become a kind of digital currency ― especially for gay men. Hop on Grindr or Scruff or any other web app designed to connect men looking for love ― or just someone to get off with ― and it won’t be long before you’re asked to show exactly what you’re packing. For some, sharing explicit images isn’t a big deal. But for those who are worried about privacy and want to avoid having their nether bits distributed to anyone ― or everyone ― on the internet, dick pics have been seen as a total no-go. Gyorgy Szucs, the 28-year-old gay CEO and founder of design and code company Creative Robot, wants to help eradicate dick pic stigma while promoting sex and body positivity and what he refers to as “kinkiness.” He’s developed a new app, called Dick Code , that lets users choose from a number of illustrations that most closely match their genitals and then generates a “code” that they can send to whomever they choose without fearing that move might eventually come back to haunt them.

Avoid The Worst Products Ever With These Insider Strategies. (Trust Me, You’ll Want To)

If you ask me, the shoddiest products on earth are toys. I don’t mean that in a derogatory sense ― as in, they advertised a computer, but instead they sold me a toy. I mean a literal toy . I’ve never had any luck with playthings. My three kids have broken so many of them, often within minutes of receiving them, I’ve lost count.

Dating After Your Spouse Dies Is The Third Rail Of Grieving

Ten months after Facebook Chief Operating Officer  Sheryl Sandberg ’s husband died, media reports revealed she had jumped into the deep end of the dating pool and was seeing Bobby Kotick , an old friend and tech billionaire. The world’s reaction to this news was fairly predictable: She was judged and slut-shamed  on Facebook in crude language. In the minds of many, the newly widowed shouldn’t date “too soon,” although no one has actually determined when “too soon” is. Is it a year? Is it when the kids leave for college? It’s a topic complicated enough that it is even discussed on  dating sites .  Sandberg addresses the issue in her new book, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy

There has been plenty of research on whether or not violent video games cause aggression in the real world. Famously, we have lawyer Jack Thompson who claimed games like Grand Theft Auto and Mortal Kombat were causing children to attack one another. His claims were met with a moral panic that culminated like all other moral panics ― lot’s of hysteria.

Former Apple Engineer Describes Domestic Abuse In Chilling Courtroom Statement

A Silicon Valley woman who allegedly suffered a decade of physical abuse at the hands of her CEO husband has offered up a heartbreaking account of her experience. In a victim impact statement read aloud in court last week, Neha Rastogi, a former engineer for Apple and Cisco, described what she said was a nightmare marriage to Abhishek Gattani, CEO of the Silicon Valley startup Cuberon. “ He hit me, multiple times during each incident on my face, arms, head, belly, pulled my hair and abused me and called me a bitch, whore, slut, bastard and much more in my language,” she wrote.

Ryland’s wish involved taking a tour of the Weather Channel studio and meeting his on-camera heroes. “I’m very interested in the weather, and it really inspires me,” he told The Huffington Post, adding that the studio tour was particularly exciting.  “It was like a dream because I never saw it before, and it looked so unreal,” he said.
