A writer and former model has said that the new craze of 'Dick pics' that has taken social media by storm, is completely harmless, and that people shouldn't be "so sensitive".
Stina Saucers said that she receives "four or five" every day, and that, although she was initially shocked, she soon got used to the fad, and, in time, saw the fun side of it, even making friends of the senders.
Dick pics - where a man called Richard sends a headshot of himself to someone he's never met - have become very popular on some parts of social media, and seem harmless enough.
But some people don't think so.
One woman, Louise Greggory, said:
"I'm tired of all these Richards sending me pictures of themselves. Big, ugly things, they are, taking up the whole of the screen like that!"
Stina, whose name can be rearranged to spell 'stain', laughed at this, saying:
"People should lighten up. There are an awful lot of Richards in the world, and if all they want is for women to stare at their photos for a few seconds, what's wrong with that? Honestly!"
Police, however, have warned people who receive the pictures to be very careful. Detective Inspector Dick Staines of Sussex Police tweeted:
"People should exercise caution. Not all of these Richards are what they seem. They claim to be genuine, but you shouldn't believe everything you see on social media."
