The few common reactions to an unsolicited ~d*ck pic~ are laughter, anger, or sometimes a zoom-in/phone tilt. But Aussie model Emily Sears had a totally different response. She’s started forwarded the obscene messages and images straight back on to the men’s girlfriends and family members.


Emily, who is based in Los Angeles, has 2.4 million followers on Instagram and an almost endless feed of stupidly hot selfies and modelling shots. She told BuzzFeedNews her audience is – ahem – very engaged.

“I usually receive at least one or two dick pics per day, at minimum. It’s just been consistently happening for so long. I became absolutely fed up with these kinds of disturbing and disgusting messages and comments online.”


So she and a model pal decided to do something about it. Whenever they receive a DM-ed ~d*ck pic~, the pair begin snooping on the men’s social media profiles to see if they have a partner. If they do, they’ll screengrab the wife or girlfriend’s profile and send it back to the men.

“We send the photos as a reminder for them to have respect for women. I think it provides an accountability that people seem to lose online; being behind a screen gives people a false sense of anonymity.”


And before you go ahead and think the thought you’re about to be thinking. Emily’s already refuted it.

“I get messages from men who say we’re ‘sluts who are asking for it’, which can get pretty overwhelming. But I truly believe its a huge social problem reflecting the attitude many men have towards women and I want to keep trying to fight against it.”
