One of our favorite humor writers on the www is Lori Wescott. She shares her awkward moments and irreverent stories at Lori-Palooza and is a co-author of the best selling You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth. Today, Lori is sharing her new coalition MASF (moms against sexy faces) with us.

In response to the overwhelming amount of sexy, or duck-face pictures being posted on Facebook and Twitter lately I’ve decided to combat this problem head on.

The coalition known as, “Moms Against Sexy Faces” (MASF) has just been born with the sole purpose of discouraging such photographic faux pas. MASF wants all ladies of social media to think before posting a sexy face picture. Don’t take this the wrong way, but the photo doesn’t look as good as you think (even when airbrushed).

There will come a point when a sexy facer you know needs a job or wants to run for PTA, and with one quick Google search there it’ll be- the black and white photo they considered artsy at the time despite their obviously drunk eyes and barely there bikini top. Rest assured that this sexy facer will be passed up for another candidate who favors one-piece bathing suits, mom jeans, and sweater sets.

The sexy face photo DOESN’T make you seem young, and for that matter neither does a toe ring, but that deserves a separate coalition
all together. MASF can only do so much.

MASF would like to now offer some alternatives to the sexy face photo:
•    The toothy grin photo (a true classic)
•    The family photoThe sitting on a donkey at the Grand Canyon photo
•    The standing next to a national monument photo
•    The Gatlinburg gift shop photo (a personal favorite)
•    The “What I cooked for dinner tonight” photo
•    The me and my pet photo

Still not sure what constitutes an overly provocative photo? Here are some examples.The following is one wholesome, suitable photo followed by an inappropriate photo- the kind that should never see the light of day.

A toothy grin and a family photo in one. MASF approved!

NOT OK! Why? The overtly grotesque nudity could result in the observer having intrusive thoughts and flashbacks. In other words, way too sexy. (Just between you and me, this was the first time I ever appeared nude on camera.)

Please join MASF and myself in the fight against unnecessarily sultry photos.

Sincerely,
Lori Wescott
President, Moms Against Sexy Faces

    Thank you for featuring me on That’s What She Said in an effort to help win the war that is plaguing our Facebook and instagram feeds. Together we can do this! Perhaps we could start a counter-trend like sharing our colonoscopy photos… That could really take off. #analgram

    Haha. Brilliant! Can we start an “alternative of the day” page? Please! I feel a meme coming on.
