“Ladies, Please, Contain Your Orgasms” is a phrase often found as a reverse caption for image macros, usually over a photo of a man with seemingly low sex appeal exhibiting an aura of confidence. It can also be self-applied by a person sharing a photo of themselves.
The earliest known instance of an image macro using this caption was posted to FunnyJunk on September 22nd, 2010. The caption was placed over an image of a boy with a freckled boy with a ginger afro and a double chin (shown below). As of August 2013, the image has received a score of 2260 and has been viewed more than 97,000 times.
In October 2010, this photo was reshared on humor sites DailyHaha and eBaum’s World. Later that year, “Ladies please contain your orgasms” appeared on at least three additional submissions to FunnyJunk. In December 2010, the first Facebook fan page dedicated to the phrase and original photo was launched, gaining 3,200 likes by August 2013. Sometime that year, a Meme Generator page using the original photo was created, accruing 685 images as of August 2013.
Throughout 2011, people on message boards like cigar enthusiast forum Puff and the Vinesauce forums began to use the phrase when posting pictures of themselves. In July 2011, a second Facebook fan page for the phrase was created, using a photo of a young child with a mullet, which has gained more than 16,500 likes as of August 2013. “Please contain your orgasms” was used on Reddit for the first time on August 19th, 2011, in a submission to the /r/MachinePorn subreddit containing a photo of the prototype supersonic fighter Rockwell XFV-12. In 2012 and 2013, additional images using the phrase have been featured on a number of humor sites including We Know Memes, MemeCenter, The Lolbrary and Cheezburger.
