But for many women, sex remains inextricable from risk — of disease, pregnancy, violence — which inevitably affects their pursuit and enjoyment of it, regardless of the immediacy of the threat. Holden had initially intended for Critique My Dick Pic to interrogate this. Eva Bloom, a sex educator also in Toronto, says that though the taboo against sending naked images is slowly lifting, women are still being punished for it. Yet even as it becomes more commonplace, the persistent framing of sexting is that straight men send images to women who did not ask for them, and straight women send images to men who ask for them. Coupled with the enormous variation within women, this means, again, that attempting to separate differences between male and female sexuality from the bigger picture is fraught, if not futile. If women are more reticent to initiate sexting, suggests Toronto-based sex writer and podcast host Kate Sloan, it may be out of internalised shame or fear of judgment, or because of their own experience of being objectified. Then, for extra credit, consider tone, narrative, aesthetics and the desires of the recipient.
