 & laquo; All & ocirc ;, here is my penis & raquo; or why you have to take the & ldquo; dick pics & raquo; seriously

Kim Lizotte hosts the documentary” Hello, here is my penis ” .

The subject may seem frivolous and elicit smirks. But dick pics are serious stuff. In the documentary Hello, here is my penis , author and columnist Kim Lévesque-Lizotte explores the ramifications of unsolicited phallus photos.

From the outset, Kim Lévesque-Lizotte affirms in the documentary that she herself received “all kinds of dick pics on all kinds of platforms.”

“The first dick pic that I received, I thought to myself: “Ah that's funny”, but the fact that I remember it so clearly shows that it really had an effect ”, she tells Metro .

“When you get it, you laugh nervously, which is a defense mechanism. It's something we do to trivialize problematic behavior, ”she adds.

A little experiment conducted at UQAM's NeuroLab for Hello, here is my penis also shows that these images have a real impact on the nervous system of the people who receive them.

An unsolicited dick pic is an assault

Starting from the phenomenon of dick peaks , Hello, here is my penis casts a wide net by dealing with sexual violence, misogyny, digital intimacy, gender inequalities, toxic masculinity and sex education.

“If I had made a documentary it would have been called Inequalities and Toxic Masculinity , it would have been heavy and no one would have looked at it! laughs the host. But opening a door on sex education with a targeted phenomenon like that, I find that a perfect approach. “

Through this investigation, Kim Lévesque-Lizotte wishes to recall that sending these pictures without consent constitutes sexual violence. “Even if you are not ill-intentioned, if it is not requested, it is an assault”, she insists.

The testimonies of several women who receive it regularly, including the public figures Catherine Fournier, Jessica Prudencio and Chantal Machabée, demonstrate it clearly.

“Misogynistic insults and dick pics are part of their daily life. These three women are just trying to exist! Anything that hinders the development of women puts me in an impossible state! ” says the host.

It reminds me of the importance of feminist struggles. Christi , nothing is won because there are women who cannot even exercise their profession in peace!

For a healthy sexuality

In Hello, here is my penis , Kim Lévesque-Lizotte also gives the floor to a few men in order to understand why many of them believe they arouse desire by sending pictures of their reproductive organ.

“The documentary allowed me to have the guys' version, to understand why they are going there. The dick pic exists because men and their penises are all about identity. ”

“ It must make a lot of men unhappy to think that all their sexuality revolves around their penis, the size of their penis and the performance of their penis, ”she adds.

At the end of the documentary, writer and ex-escort Mélodie Nelson brings a necessary reflection on desire. According to Kim Lévesque-Lizotte, society as a whole is more than due for introspection.

“I like to promote a return to eroticism. There is a way to live your sexuality well, so that it is fun and healthy. ”

Hello, here is my penis will be available on Crave starting December 22.
