Conan: New ‘Service’ For Technologically Impaired Sexting Policitians

Are you a Congressman (or former) whose privates keep showing up on TMZ for some reason? Well—Junk Squad has got you covered. Their motto: “We teach Congressman who weren’t born in the digital age how to send pictures of their penis safely, and discreetly.”

Yeah, this is a joke. It was Conan the other night (full clip after the jump). But, lucky for all you high-profile men out there having difficulties safeguarding your “digital bits and pieces,” we’ve got a couple real-life technological solutions that might help.

Snapchat

“Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend (or maybe a few). They’ll view it, laugh, and then the snap disappears from the screen.” It’s still safer than a Twitter DM (especially the way some of you confuse that with an actual tweet), but be warned — there’s nothing to stop that “friend” from grabbing a screenshot before the “snap” disappears.

Wickr

“The Internet is forever. Your private communications don´t need to be.” If you’re, say, in the intelligence game, Wickr offers “military-grade encryption” for your photos and messages and a secure delete function that erases the evidence so thoroughly not  even a forensic specialist will be able to find it. All that encryption and deleting is still vulnerable to the ever-annoying screenshot mentioned above, though.

Not on an iPhone? Try Gryphn. Facebook also has its own self-destructing message app, but it’s tied to your Facebook account.
