    I can see that being more common in a smaller pool, like rochester. But in nyc, there's not as much willingness to converse when there's a gay man every 10 feet.

    I'm just over the fake masseurs and fake escorts trying to "legitify" their bs on the current apps (especially Jackd). No, I'm not paying you $80.00 for a butt rub and no I'm not paying you $30.00 for some head (giving or receiving).

    I'm the opposite of all of this. Given that if I'm on there I'm looking for friends or dudes to date on there, not hookups.

    [HASHTAG]#FACE[/HASHTAG] - I very rarely contact or respond to dudes with one or several public Face Pictures on the app. If it were Facebook, I would see your rationale. But Jack'd is (primarily) a gay hookup app. Seeing a dude's Face pic next to photos of erect peens in underwear and ass shots is not equivalent to marching for LGBT rights in DC. You might as well put your photo up in sex party bathroom stalls. I think dude's who DON'T have face pics shows the level of discretion that i like, also it shows me that they are not interested in becoming JACK'D FAMOUS CELEBRITIES. That they just want to meet someone they are compatible with but unfortunately this is one of the only options he has.

    [HASHTAG]#SHIRTLESS[/HASHTAG] - I don't mind the shirtless profiles if you want sex...but for the guys that claim to want a date or just friends, why do you need to show your body off? I rarely ever hit up shirtless profiles, even with hot bodies. That tells me the person is either vain or narcissistic or they need to be validated by others, even just superficially.

    However, I do accept that this is a hookup app, so I don't get, nor do I send many messages on a daily basis. I'm okay with that. But I have met some interesting guys on there.

    I agree w most of this. In defense of shirtless profiles, I simply realized that they got more juice on the app. As we see, while it lead to a lot more inbox mssgs, it clearly didn't lead to anything I actually wanted.

    Also, Im just not w 'fitness shaming'! If a woman had a pic of her in a bikini on a 'dating' profile, no one would assume she's only looking for sex. Im sooo over gay men acting like having a nice body is bad, or somehow, disingenuous unless ur a celebrity who we can add to the thirst trap threads.

    A gay man can be a good guy, handsome, nice, and have a nice body, and not be a thot.

    This is true, but the reality is those type dudes are few and far spread in comparison to the "gay norm".

    N thats something I won't argue. I just hate when gay men put a veil over gay men who happen to be into fitness. Call it what u want, but when presumed str8 men do it, we create thirst trap threads for them.

    GTFOH! You can tell a dude has a decent body without needing to seeing his pubes peeking out of shorts in a shirtless pic.

    If you want substance, don't use superficial qualities as bait. it's as simple as that.

    I've only had one engrossing back and forth on Jack'd that had me writing paragraphs and refreshing the app and eagerly awaiting a response. He had no public face pic, no shirtless pic...but a private full body clothed photo. Turns out he was a close friend of an Ex making him off limits. Small world.

    But definitely showed me it was possible. He had ano interesting filled in profile and an interesting profile pic that wasnt just some meme so I was open to conversing. Was time that wasn't wasted.

    I'm just not into them if I'm looking for SUBSTANCE. Shirtless as your first impression to me tells me that your body is the number one thing you are advertising as what you have to offer.

    Again, not mad if your wanting sex. But if you want to discuss how stars die and former galaxies, you shirtless in your bathroom or gym locker room doesn't scream that.

    Tinder is better from this perspective as choosing the 1-5 photos that represent who you and what you are interested in is both challenging and def factors into my decision to swipe right or left. Presentation matters if substance and quality is your goal.

    Maybe if the last photo is a shirtless I'm at the beach photo I think that would be okay, granted that he's got tame photos as well.

    Honestly people who are in shape don't have to be shirtless to get people to tell they are built well . I actually appreciate you a little mystery .

    So, if I give 0 fuks about stars, I'm a frivolous simpleton looking to smash?! What if I wana talk about love and hip hop being a guilty pleasure that I know I should be ashamed of watching? Or about my obsession w the ID channel? Or about how I actually do a lot of volunteer work, unbeknownst to many. Me having a shirtless picture, showing (yes, I go to the gym and I admit, I want to have one of those bodies YOU consider sexy) means that I can't be interested in more than sex?!

    Thats nothing but that same veil that many gay men often wanna throw on guys w really nice bodies. There's nothing wrong w having a 'dad bod', a lil belly, extra cushion, etc, but there is something wrong w automatically considering all of this 'real' or 'genuine', but assuming a guy w a nice body is 'vain' and/or 'shallow'.

    I completely get and understand the lack of a 'need' for shirtless pics, ijs, in keeping it 100, it obviously gets more attention.

    Not to mention, I haven't been on the apps in years. Maybe in 2016, at 34 years old, I wouldn't be as pressed to have shirtless pics. Tinder was the last one I tried, and w the option of a series of pics, I didn't have a shirtless one there.

    My issue is the whole 'deciding who someone is' because they have a shirtless pic. Women stay posting pics on IG that 'show them off' all of the time.

    Look, I'm just telling you how I perceive those photos, especially when surrounded by so many others similar to that in salacious poses with eggplant and sweat emoticons in place of text.

    Take my opinion with a grain of salt, but judging on your own experiences in the thread you've said that you got too many replies from men of little substance and not much to offer in the form of genuine conversation.

    So if anything that tells me that there were many guys like me not hitting u up, possibly for the same reason.

    Nikka who cares about your nice body?! they are a dime a dozen on Jack'd! it's not like the body pic is helping you stand out on there, real talk. Standing out in the black gay community is actually doing the opposite of the shirtless tattooed "stripper/bartender looking for tips at a gay club" look.

    Exception: A dude with before and after photos of his weight loss journey. That comes off more as showing he's goal oriented to me, which is a good dating quality

    U know exactly what my point is. I'll leave that right where it is. Also, I doubt that I was getting looked over by 'men of substance' on jakd. I'm gonna go w the more likely situation of it being an app where the goal for most wasnt to communicate, especially for those who incorrectly assumed I was looking to smash because I had a shirtless pic.

    1. You could at least edit the grammatical errors in your clapback to my clapback.

    2. Please stop thinking of bartenders as sluts!

    Seriously though, aren't any of those guys with face and body pics worried about becoming JACK'D FAMOUS?

    Even the guys constantly seen "on the prowl" in gay bars and clubs get a stigma.

    I never posted my face pics as public pics. Everyone didn't need to be able to recognize me in the street.

    Im sure MANY of them are just attention junkies. A lot of guys treat all apps that the gays, by default, turn into sex apps, like gay fb.

    After dealing with the early Jack'd drama, scandals and rookie mistakes I've find ways to filter/weed out the bad seeds.

    My issue now is that I run into guys with quality looking for the same things that I'm looking for (so they say), we have good convos and then the niggas disappear for a week and come back crying and carrying on about the app and their bad experiences. I'm like HELLO you're friend zoning me. I'm trying to further connect with you, let you know that I'm not looking for hookups and I'm a good guy yet you keep looking for the next best thing and reporting back to me how niggas aint shit. So I just block them, that just tells me that something ain't right with you mentally. :yeshrug:

    One of the reasons why I'm not looking for anything right now but I still have the app to chat with people.
