Do you ever sneak and take photos of hot guys with your phone?
I do it all the time.
Yep, took pics of some hot sweaty shirtless construction dudes the other day.
No. OP and R1 are total creeps.
To what purpose? I totally don't understand this. I'm aware that people do this and I've seen some of these pics online, but I truly do not get the fun in this.
You're documenting that there are hot people in the world. Yes, we know that already.
It's gross. People who do this have no boundaries.
I want to, but I dont have the guts to do it. Some guys might get really offended and go off. I would go for it if technology was more discreet.
Oh give it a rest R4. The government does it, and we have the same rights they do.
No, R6. It's fucking gross beyond belief and morally fucking bankrupt.
And "the government does it" is not a good reason for you to take a picture of some hot guy that never gave you his fucking permission.
Guess it would be OK to just walk over and unzip his pants without permission too, right?
Believe it or not R7, public places do not carry with then a cone of privacy preventing people from using their eyes. The sooner you get that into your thick immature brainless skull, the better off we will all be.
I just took this picture, but unfortunately the guy's spectacular ass doesn't really come off in it.
All the time. I never post them anywhere, so I feel okay with it. jsut my little stash to admire.
it's not the taking that disgusts me, it's the posting on the internet.
How do you do get close enough without looking like youre taking a photo?
Oh I am all about Tap That Guy. But I've only taken a pic once, of some guy on the bus who was just scorching hot. He deserved to be shared with the Tumblring world.
A couple of years ago I came across a picture of me that someone had submitted to a Flickr group. He'd taken it while I was sitting on a bench waiting for a class. After the initial shock, I wasn't creeped at all, but actually almost flattered. I wish the guy had introduced himself lol.

Um, taking someone's picture and unzipping his pants are two ENTIRELY different things. Unclench, Mary.

I have an iphone. They are wonderful for zooming.
There was a guy at my job that the company had hired to do some work in the ceiling who was super hot. He'd occasionally walk by my desk and I'd get a perfect view of his great ass. Suddenly, that phrase "Why don't you take a picture, it'll last longer?" popped into my head and, since it was too close for comfort for me to take a picture, I sat my phone on my desk so that it pointed to where he'd be walking by. When I heard his footsteps approaching I hit "record" and videotaped him when he passed. Of course, he was only in the frame for a couple of seconds, but when I paused the video at the right moment, I had a perfect shot of his ass. I've since deleted the video, but I would do it again.
Why are so many hot guys passing through your mother's basement, OP?
Now that R7 finally realizes that he can be photographed any time he appears in public, will he become a hermit?
RICH by Oprah
One can only hope, R20.
only from a ridiculous distance where you can't tell who it is...so I stopped doing it.
They are out in public. There's nothing wrong with taking a photo. It's the closest I'll ever get to having one.
No. It's voyeurism and possibly the first step towards being a creepy, lonely, friendless, sex-starved serial killer.
What's wrong with voyeurism?
All this hullabaloo and yet not one "This thread is useless without pics" reply.
R26, get over yourself
iPhones make a loud shutter sound, otherwise I might attempt a covert photo. But I'd be mortified if the guy heard.
I tried once and only once because I overlooked turning off the flash.
[quote]iPhones make a loud shutter sound
Mine doesn't, it's been on silent since I bought it.
I do it fairly frequently. I just like documenting the hot guys I run across here in NYC on a day to day basis. I don't really post the pictures, but I like checking them out from time to time. I did it just tonight actually. And since this thread is here, I'll post this studs picture.
I just liked his look and his suit fit well, big dress shoes, strong features. He was really handsome and quite sexy. He definitely got everyone's attention in the car.
I couldn't help noticing that little arrow thingy, R33. Any chance we can see a little motion? I'm sure no one here will let it go any further.
btw, I think this is an Excellent hobby.
It's creepy and stalkerish. Who are the immature pieces of shit who think this type of behavior is normal?!
Enlighten me on how to suppress the shutter sound on an iPhone 5 then R32.
If you reply again that I'm too stupid to own an iPhone then you're an insufferable troll and not helpful to anyone here who might benefit from a configuration tip.

It's only going to get worse once Google Glass become more mainstream and inconspicuous.
What if people put your pics online and claimed to have sex with you? "I fucked this one stupid." And the person who posted it was some ancient basement dweller or a toothless meth head who's half a retard?
r39, I wouldn't care. Im not that sensitive and paranoid.

THIS. NEVER. HAPPENED.
iPhone has a little toggle on the left side of the phone, which turns off the sound - including the camera shutter.

You can copy and post almost ANY photo found online (Facebook, Instagram, etc.)for the purposes that you espouse.
That's it! from now on I'm never leaving my house without wearing a Mexican wrestlers mask.
I sneak pictures of hot guys over the stalls in public restrooms while they are moving their bowels. It's really hot.
On one hand it's creepy and pathetic and I hope you get caught and your phone smashed.
On the other hand it's innocent and kind of hot, I wouldn't mind if it happened to me. Master the art of being stealth and have fun!!!
There is Tumblr devoted to these pics.
I think ones who have issues with taking pictures of people out in public places are the real freaks. Is it also wrong to look at them? What's the moral difference?
It's called tapthatguy.com for some reason DL says that's an invalid url.
I think it's rude
not that we have manners anymore.
Do you feel that all pictures of other people are rude, or just the ones where the photographer thinks the subject is hot?
When taking snapshots in public, are we obliged to clear out an area free of other people to make sure no one is photographed without permission? What about a group of people? Crowds?
Are journalists exempt?
Bunch of fucking creeps on this site.
No kidding, R56.
Bunch of hypocritical schoolmarms, too.

That's the best you can do, you fucking creep?
God, some of you people here are just fucked up losers.
I have made arguments that you have ignored, so I responded to your post exactly as you responded to me.
It's kind of appropriate in your case since you have no rational argument to support your position, just your own gut feelings. I wonder what makes you feel creeped out at the thought of taking pictures of adults in public places.
I love how R60 is pretending it's totally normal to secretly photograph people in public. Everyone else is the one with the problem!
What a coincidence you posted this op. I was waiting for my takeout across from another guy waiting for his takeout, and I couldn't help but take his photo because he was so hot.
I was scared he would catch me taking his photo and beat me down, but this guy is so sexy.
[quote] Everyone else is the one with the problem!
No. Just the hypocrites who call it creepy because of some issue they have. You know that taking pictures of adults in public places is a mundane activity. You think if the photographer thinks the subject is hot, taking a picture is some kind of perversion. You cannot justify your belief with anything other than repeating it with a exclamation point.
Perhaps you are confusing it with taking secret photos of people when they are in a private place. That's worse than creepy. It's criminal. Perhaps you are confusing it with stalking or child abduction. I really don't know. Whatever it is, it is your issue.
That guy is fug R62. Seriously he's like a cable access version of Mike "The Situation", from Jersey Shore (who anything to look at either),
You people take pictures of the ugliest people.
The bunged up Mary's exclaiming that they're "creeped out" by this particular hobby are the types who probably have human mannequins in their basements--ala Buffalo Bill in "The Silence of the Lambs". Who (and on DATALOUNGE, of all places) can be on a high moral horse enough to denigrate someone who snaps pics of hot guys in public? Bitches, please.
R62's guy is built like a brick shit house. He's very hot.

Put it on vibrate and it won't be heard. And please, for GOODNESS sake, turn the flash off.
