What's Really Behind The Sexy Selfie

The One Finger Challenge

We use our bodies as a symbol of residence but still need to play by the rules of society by keeping covered. Born from that spite is the naked one finger selfie. It is achieved by holding up your index finger at a certain angle to cover both your breasts and “privates” in the mirror.

As a personal experiment for this article, I have experienced a lot of difficulty achieving this angle. So, to those who have successfully done it, I applaud you.

While being comfortable with ourselves, we may be making others feel uncomfortable. Whether it be because of our size and body structure or just by posting our nudity.

After doing some research and conducting a poll I have come up with the various facts.

1-More than 75% of the women only participated in this challenge for self-esteem reasons.

It is a new way to take a photo so naturally we are inclined to test it out. Most women take naked pictures of themselves to improve their self-esteem. It’s just a plus if their partner appreciates them too.

2-Less than 10% of the woman asked posted their selfie to Facebook or another social media site.

Sharing things is how we express our feelings so when these photos were shared, it was to show that we are proud of who we are and wat we look like.

3-Exactly half of the women asked sent their selfie to their s/o to enjoy.

Enough said.

4-95% of the men asked said the selfie was a good tease.

By covering parts of the body, it leaves room for imagination and the idea of seduction. They say it prepares them for the completely nude pictures that are to come, or gets them raring to go for later.

5-65% of the men asked said they took this kind of selfie.

It was easier for them because they only have to cover one thing 😉

6-All of the men who took the selfie did it for the same reasons as the women.

They wanted the confidence boost and wanted to tease their partners a little before they saw each other later that night.

Personal experience-

-I had serious angle issues due to my height and the position of the mirror on the wall.

-when I finally got the angle right I had issues covering everything I needed to cover.

-I finally got a successful picture and it did make me feel sexy, but my breasts are my favorite part of my body (besides my eyes) and covering them was a down side for me.

-I did not show my boyfriend, even though I probably should have.


How did this get started?

Why do so many people feel the need to post it for the world to see?

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
