Ever heard of the National Send-a-Doodle Day? This day, often misinterpreted as something not quite safe for work, actually refers to everyone sharing their art and creativity with others. It had been significantly misunderstood but let's set the record straight!

When is Send Nudes Day?

It's national send nudes day on the 18th April.

A Brief History

Even though there were 30823 mentions of the day online, it's fascinating to note that the majority of these occurred on April 18, 2019. It seems this particular day in spring really captured people's 'doodling' enthusiasm last year. If you're wondering why doodling, then grab a cup of tea (or coffee, we don't judge), and enjoy the little journey we offer into the world of plucky cartoon sketches and stick-figure extravaganza.

The Art of Doodling

Doodling, contrary to popular opinion, isn't just aimless scribbling; it’s an outlet for creativity that helps improve memory, concentration, and relieve stress. People find their inner Picasso, and every out-of-line shape you sketch becomes a masterpiece worthy of sharing.

Give Doodles, Not Noodles

So where did the confusion arise? A small mishap in the digital game of whispers turned 'doodle' into 'noodle', and consequently, the name was misinterpreted by a few online users, leading to an internet joke turned colossal misunderstanding. But as all great stories go, sometimes, a little confusion is what it takes to make a day unforgettable!

History behind the term 'Send Nudes'


The Birth of Internet Slang

Internet slang began to emerge in the early days of online communities, forums, and instant messaging platforms. Users started using abbreviations and acronyms to communicate more efficiently online. This laid the groundwork for the development of terms like 'send nudes' in the future.


The Evolution of Sexting Culture

As smartphone usage expanded, so did the practice of sending intimate or explicit photos, commonly known as 'sexting.' The rise of social media platforms added fuel to this trend, allowing individuals to share photos more easily and privately.


The Birth of 'Send Nudes'

Around this time, the phrase 'send nudes' started gaining popularity. It emerged as internet slang, often used as a humorous or sarcastic request for someone to send explicit photos. Memes, online jokes, and catchy phrases further propelled its usage in digital spaces.


Mainstream Recognition and Backlash

By 2016, 'send nudes' had become a widely recognized phrase. It found its way into popular culture, appearing in movies, TV shows, and music lyrics. However, the casual and often objectifying nature of the term also sparked debates around consent, privacy, and the potential harm it could cause.


Continued Usage and Evolution

Today, 'send nudes' remains a prevalent internet slang term, often used in a lighthearted or self-aware manner. It has become a meme, continually evolving and adapting as internet culture progresses. Recognizing its potential impact, discussions about consent, boundaries, and respectful communication have also gained prominence.
