Flashing someone with your genitals in the street - legally defined as indecent exposure - is punishable in the UK with up to two years in prison.

And yet, sending someone an unsolicited picture of your genitals is still a grey area.

Samantha Mawdsley, a 30-year-old media analyst, got a nasty shock when, after leaving a review for a restaurant on Facebook, one man sent her a message, asking for her "thoughts"

Turns out, the message was accompanied by a picture of his penis.

Mawdsley told indy100:

I received unsolicited dick pics when I was internet dating three years ago, and I just ignored it. But when this when came out of nowhere, it reminded me of when this happened in real life when I was 15, wearing my school uniform and in a public library. A man sat beside me and started masturbating.

It's the same invasion and humiliation! And while women stay silent, the men who do this contribute to get away with it.

Mawdsley's response? Spam the man with dozens of other dick pics.

It has been 99.9% positive. I did receive one more sick pick in hundreds of messages of support. And two people have told me I am immature and should have ignored it. But remaining silent just doesn't change anything. Why should women just "put up with it"?

You can watch the awesome unfold, below:

I want more women to 'point and scream' just like they would in real life, so long as they feel safe.

A campaign has begun to end unsolicited dick pics on Facebook, and it has almost 8,000 signatories.
