#AfterSex Selfies on Instagram

Are #AfterSex Selfies TMI?

Have we reached the modern pinnacle of social TMI? People are using the hashtag #aftersex and #aftersexselfie to share their postcoital bliss on Instagram. Of course, they're also using it for a number of other weird/funny/inappropriate photos. But the "true" purpose of the hashtag is to snap a pic immediately following a romp between the sheets and then share it with the millions of users on the app.

See, this is how millennials get a bad rap for being self-obsessed oversharers. On one hand, I'm sort of into the pro-sex, let's-stop-pretending-we-all-don't-do-it movement. But on the other hand, this sort of feels like just another way to get attention with a hint of braggy "look at how much sex I have" 'tude. What do you think? Weigh in below on how you feel about after-sex selfies!

I like the idea of an after sex selfie . . .that you keep to yourself!

It is narcissistic. Even more so than most internet picture trends. This one does shoot to the top of the list, really. Tied with the 'hot girl partly undressed, or guy flexing, in a mirror' and the 'hot girl showing her preferred assets but not her face'. It definitely trumps 'look at how well I eat' or 'look at how goofy/drunk/weird/cool my friends are' in the obnoxious photo department.

It's also insulting to the act of love-making, and really insulting to people who either aren't in relationships, or are having problems at the moment. ie: us. My wife is in the hospital for hip surgery right now.
