Big Dick Energy. You’ve heard this week’s catchiest phrase by now, a Twitter-spawned term for someone who exudes the quiet but undeniable confidence. It got nothing to do with the phallus or may I just call it ‘dick. It’s an attitude. A swagger. A vibe!
BDE (Big Dick Enery) has always been with us, even if we haven’t the phrase to describe it: it’s charisma and confidence, coupled with the ability to almost instantly make other people feel good. In some ways, it’s the opposite of toxic masculinity. You don’t even need a penis to have BDE. Rihanna, for example? Really strong BDE. David Beckham, not so much. Cate Blanchett simply standing there smirking, but, like, only using her eyes somehow? Powerful, powerful big dick energy.
The Cut described it as “a certain gait – sort of like you’ve got a massive dick swinging around – but also a twinkle in the eye, like if you look right at that twinkle you can see a dick swinging in the eye.”
So amongst Indian celebrities who all do you thing have BDE???
