Why are you wearing that fur raincoat?

Paraphilias manifest themselves in a remarkably wide variety of behaviours; some folks like to watch, others take a more active role, and sometimes those old guys wearing trenchcoat want to show you something. Well, if you like to share, it's best not to involve a blogging gal carrying a camera phone.

Hmm, shame she didn't get a clearer shot of him if the aim was to publish it and humiliate him. If he's into exhibitionism, might the exposure just encourage him?

It would have been much funnier if she had a shot of him in the act.
been "flashed" a few times, long before cameraphones or digital. *sigh*

Yeh, this gal got a nifty motion shot of her flasher.

What's the penalty for this crap back in The States? In the UK not only will you get two years, your exposing ass ends up on the Violent and Sex Offender Register.

And then there are those of us who like to watch people watching others doing sexual things.

Sizzle. One time on the subway after exchanging a knowing smile with a young woman she stood too close to me. I was flustered for an hour afterwards. That's about the most exciting thing ever happened to me on the subway.

"Pervert" is such an odd word for a newspaper to use, isn't it? Even if it is just the NY Daily News.

Yeah, I prefer "weinie wagger."

Too bad she didn't say "That looks just like a penis, only smaller."

Here's the photo page of friendly_chic407's photo Mutant linked to above. It's worth a look for her detailed account, in my opinion; although it's the full size photo Mutant links to that has all the gruesome detail (definitely not SFW).

It took guts to take that picture.

Shouldn't this stuff be tagged with a big "NSFW"? I'm sure plenty of people would prefer to avoid looking at websites with any kind of sexual content while at work.

In other phone related news, dipshit steals phone takes pictures, sex vid, gets instant internet stardom.

Good for her. Same deal as with the dog poo girl. I'm totally behind nailing these anti-social people by any available means.

I can't help but feel that the photos of the guy who stole the cell phone, and the way the person who lost their phone dealt with it as somehow impotent and pointless. But I don't feel the same way about the people who snapped the pictures of the pervs. I don't really know what the difference is, though.

I got flashed on the London tube once - before camera phones - and it was hilarious. The guy was a pro, he looked like a businessman, trench coat, tie, hat, trousers. . . that were only from his knees down and attached to his shirt with long garters. When he opened up his coat and I saw all the trouble he'd gone to I couldn't stop laughing. Somehow I don't think that's the reaction he wanted: he looked like he was actually offended and he kind of stomped off. I wish I had a picture to remember him by. Good times, good times.

Looks like the NYPD is sniffing around for a suspect on the subway perv flasher. I don't know that I really want to be buying raw seafood from a guy like that. Still, if it isn't the same guy they think it is, someone owes him a huge apology.

It looks like one of the photos mentioned above may lead to an arrest. It certainly looks a lot like the guy cops want to talk to.

I wish I'd pointed that out.
