Default Surprise Package?

My sister sent me this. It was one of several pictures giving reasons why (g)you should have a camera phone. I highly endorse camera phones now. What do you think, real or photo-shopped?

It looks manipulated to me. Plus, what are the odds that all four of those pretty young men just happen to have massive dongs?

That's what I was thinking. Well, the one second from the right isn't that massive.
My brother in-law doesn't think it has been touched up.

It doesn't appear as long as the others, but it's still pretty girthy. If not massive, larger than average at least.

Sure, four guys in a non-sexual context, standing around with boners, not at all embarrassed. Why not?

I remember seeing that photo several years ago. I think it predates cameras in cell phones so at the very least, the explanation is not quite right.

I agree the picture seems unlikely but I'm not sure why they should be embarrassed.

Many times when we went on runs on the Harleys most of the guys would have hard-ons caused by a combination of things that had nothing to do with sexual reasons. None of them were embarrassed by it. I would often find that the girls were sticking their noses out too. (that did make me a bit self conscious sometimes)

Hopefully though, the men of which you speak weren't wearing skintight, light colored short short on Harleys, and getting their pictures taken with their arms around each other.

It looks more like to me that they had no other place to keep a tube with their keys, money, cards, etc.

The second from the left is the one that makes me think it look sobviously shopped. It just seems unlikely that it would come to rest in sucha position so as to perfectly show that outline including the balls and everything.

They appear too perfectly cylindrical. They all look like a lot of fun but of the photoshopped variety. C'est la vie

Well, they're obviously not the coxless fours.

They look like they are about to set up in a gay porn.

At least we can tell which hand is their dominant hand.

I think it's fair to assume that they are erect, and in that case, they look more or less ordinary to me.

That said, my guess would still be a staged photo with fake dongs, although I can't really motivate it other than that I think it's the most likely scenario.
