The 'I Throw Myself At Men' photo series takes an otherwise sad situation and turns it into a hilarious project that is too entertaining to ignore. It follows photographer Lilly McElroy as she literally throws herself at strangers and captures the pure surprise and confusion they experience during this moment of awkward human contact.

The Arizona native began the I Throw Myself At Men photo project by arranging blind dates with men through Craigslist. From there, she started to work the bar circuit, asking men if they would partake in her experiment and enticing them with a beer afterwards.

As a social experiment, it is interesting to see how the men and onlookers reacted to the I Throw Myself At Men project while in progress. Stats for Launching Lady Photography Trending: Older & Mild
