It's no secret that some men like to send send pictures of their junk via social media - preferably to a willing participant, but all too often that's not the case. Sometimes the recipient can be scrolling through Twitter or Instagram and then BOOM! There's an unsolicited dick pic in their messages. Grim.
But as gross as those unsolicited images are, they could soon be used against the sender in a uniquely modern way.
You see, the new iOS systems being rolled out across iPhones around the world are getting a bunch of features - and one of them is an app called Measure.
Yeah - you know where we're going with this. You goddamn know very well.
Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, told people at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference: "Measure is a new app in iOS 12, which uses AR to quickly gauge the size of real-world objects similar to a tape measure.
"The new app automatically provides the dimensions of objects like picture frames, posters and signs, and can also show diagonal measurements, compute area and allow users to take a photo and share it with accurate dimensions right from their iPhone or iPad."
So essentially, now someone will be able to have a look at a picture of your Johnson and ask the guy to also send over a snapshot of the measurement.
Thankfully for some men, because the technology is based off augmented reality like Pokémon Go, you won't be able to get a picture of someone's junk and use the app - it has to be done in real time for it to work.
Considering sending a dick pic? If it's within the bounds of a consensual relationship and everyone's on board, go ahead.
If not, then a) keep in mind that even though you might think yours looks ahhh-mazing, the recipient might not be so please about a sudden schlong appearing in their inbox - whether viewed as disrespectful or a violation, it's unlikely to be appreciated. And b) just don't.
One woman was so put off by random blokes sending their manhood to her that she started sending them back to their mums.

Rebecca McGregor, 21, from Aberdeen, Scotland, says she's fed up of men being 'disrespectful' and sending her the explicit photographs - claiming she receives about three per day.
After being pinged a message on Snapchat of a man revealing his torso and (more significantly) his penis, Jessica said it was 'the straw that broke the camel's back'.
She found his mother on social media and sent her a message: "Hey doll, I see you're listed as [name removed]'s mother? I think you need to have a chat with your son on how to approach women - see attached xx."
So make sure you know that the person you're sending the picture to actually wants it.
