Spring in Kuwait: Why are you sending me pictures of your personal?

Is it just me....

Lately, a very odd phenomenon has been happening to me.  I meet men.  You kinda haveta weed out the good from the bad, but this is different.  I've met men lately - from different walks of life -  who are sending me unsolicited random photos of their penises.  Not one, not two, not three.....  These guys are business professionals, mature, and people who you would never in a million years expect to send photos of their tallywackers.

I don't know if it is just me.  I mean - do I have a face that says, "I really want to see your dangly bits"?  I don't ask them. I don't even have time to respond before BAM  - there it is.  Eeeeewww...  I'm not saintly or anything, but OMG.  Whyyyyyy???  I'm not talking dirty.  I'm not behaving in a way that would solicit this kind of behavior.  I'm just going about my life as usual. 

....we have now reached a whole new level of low-class....  I have reached a whole new level of disparagement over my single status.  Is this the future?

And what does this say about the senders?  I guess a picture says a thousand words:  That their entire existence revolves around their schlongs?  "This is who I am."  Wow.  Has society become so base?  Does it really come down to (on average) 6.5 inches?  "This is all I'm worth."  (Well, okay, I have to admit that one was REALLY impressive, but still....)

God forbid I start getting videos...

Dudes, if I wanted to see neked pictures of men, I would log onto one of those sites specifically for that.  Where is the mystery?  Where is the intrigue?  Put your clothes on, let's go to dinner and let's get to know each other.  WTF. Whatever happened to talking to a girl?  Can you imagine:  "How I met my wife...."  

Mafi ayeb bil Kuwait?  Wallah?  Killish?

Sometimes I think that I have issues and then I realize how truly phucked up other people are.  Sigh.

Hi DG,

"These guys are business professionals, mature, and people..."

I would definitely take out mature and replace it with adults - and even maybe -...

Cheers

Oh, I sent that to you? Well, that solves one mystery. Carry on.

Desert Girl said...

JD - Correct. I'll leave it in because of your comment. :)

Jahrawi - Would you happen to be NK? If so, where have you been? Either way, thank you for the very considerate comments.

Traveler - you are faaaar to much of a gentlemen to stoop to such lows, my friend. :)

Oh DG, I'm not laughing AT you, really. I'm laughing at your post. Wow! Dare I say negative attention is better than no attention at all? In your case, no!
I am curious - are these men emailing these photos to you or sending them to you on your phone? All I can do is shake my head. I don't think it's anything about you that is inviting this type of behavior. Although I've noticed the more a woman acts like she doesn't care over here, the harder a man has to work to get her attention. I know what a classy broad you are. I hope you can find a man who's a class act that deserves you!

It's because you're a foreign female trying to get to "know" them, most men here will just think "She's not Arab, thus meaning she's easy & I can bang her much quicker" and then you deal with their gross crap. The sex crazed Arab men don't see you a nice girl to date and Court, but they mainly see you as a cheap prostitute. You might take what I say as harsh, but it's just how it is over here. Your best bet would be to date an Arab guy studying in America, at least he'll be less sex crazed and could actually want to know you. (Or maybe just try dating a non-Arab guy for once and have a high chance to avoid this gross shit all together.) The fact of the matter is that she'll see you and think "Oh, I'll impress her with my huge desert tent or fancy beach house and she'll easily sleep with me." Also, I'd like to add that finding dates by getting numbers/flirting is a stupid idea, you're gonna get a dirt bag. I've found the best way to talk with guys are at chill parties, that's just my two cents.

Dude, I didn't get off the banana boat yesterday. I've been in Kuwait 16 years and have known Arabs/Kuwaitis for all my life. My ears are highly sensitive bullshit detectors and I know who is good, bad, ugly, and decent. I'm not easily impressed on ANY continent. I'm not collecting numbers driving down the street - these are professional men who have been educated overseas and should know better. Just because I'm foreign, don't assume that I'm stupid please. One false assumption does not warrant another.

Traveler said...

Yeah, I am a gentlemen.

The framed oil painting will be delivered later this week.

Hey, go easy on Anonymous 10:34, again you went for the kill, but he/she had a few good points. They might be stereotyping you because you are western, basically what 10:34 was saying. Yes, he/she didn't realize that you didn't just get off the boat and you are a seasoned Kuwaiti resident, however, you have to respect your perseverance in this crazy Kuwait world, you don't give up easy, I guess you are not going to stop trying until you also find your prince like your friend Expat.

... and 10:34....

"A cheap (foreign) prostitute" as opposed to an cheap Kuwaiti prostitute? I have found in my personal experience that many Kuwaiti men treat foreign women (at least Western foreign women) better than they would some/many Kuwaiti women. (And ladies - please feel free to chime in with your comments here.)

Are you calling all Arab men "sex crazed"? This seems to be quite a racist remark, doesn't it?

Don't you exchange numbers at your chill parties?? Wouldn't you consider that be a stupid idea also? It is the same theory: Get a number, get to know someone. Or were you planning to have your mother call her mother and arrange an engagement? What's the difference in how you obtain the number? [I've been to plenty of parties ("chill" or not) where I wasn't even aware that other women around me were paid entertainment. You probably wouldn't know either, would you? And no- they were not foreign paid entertainment. How is a man to know the difference?]

My family has a huge beach house (in the US) and I can afford to buy/own/operate a bigass desert camp. Again, je suis not easily impressed by things. If the conversation moves in that direction, I move in the opposite.

Traveler said...

...and yet you never even invited me out to that desert camp --

Now you know why I am sending you the painting :)

I have a feeling Anonymous 10:34 is female. A bitter one at that.

You're a respectable woman, DG. You know this and so do all the people who matter in your life. Next time some adult man wants to send you pictures of his less than visually appealing male anatomy... you may want to consider threatening to file a police report. I can assure you a local woman would... or she would tell her brother/father/etc. Their disrespect towards Western women has nothing to do with the woman herself. It's the man with the warped mentality.

When smart phones and video calls first came along, I once answered a video call from a faceless man actively masturbating. WTF?! On my BUSINESS phone no less!

I agree Kuwaiti men treat Western women far better than they would a local woman. And it might be because we tolerate so much less nonsense. We're not going to spend our days at the salon and evenings out with the female family members while he's out chasing woman all day. We require far more attention (emotional, psychological, etc) and material items aren't the answer.

Your way of getting to know people, by exchanging phone numbers, is about the only option there in Kuwait. And as you said, you didn't get off the boat yesterday. You know the games, the players, and how to avoid it for the most part. But even when you stumble, it's still a learning experience to lead you into something far more positive.

Hi Anon. I've been a reader of this blog for a long time and I have to add that DG has met her Prince. He's waiting in paradise for her when it's her time with dozens of pink roses. (May he rest in peace.)

I hope she meets another wonderful guy that treats her the way she should be treated until then. <3

Desert Girl said...

Wow Expat. Your comment made me cry. That was so sweet.

He is waiting. I had the BEST dream ever one night. Shamlan was in Heaven with my dad and my step-mother. They were all in a garden and they were going dancing. I loved that dream. I know where to find them. :)

What's worse is guys you meet online who keep pestering you to send them pictures of your "private area". WTF for? Why do you need to see a pic of my vajayjay? So you can post it on the internet? So you can jerk off while you look at it?
