Yes this is really happening! (Trust me, I’ve seen some horrors this week in my Facebook feed, that I cannot erase from my memory! )
Originally made famous by the Red Hot Chilli peppers album cover and performances, this is now a ‘thing’ in aid of Testicular cancer, for Cancer Research.
Basically a bloke puts a sock on it and takes a photo and begs for money and posts on Instagram / Facebook / Twitter.

None of them on my Facebook feed looked ANYTHING like this! ;)
If you want to get in on the action boys, here’s the hash tag: #cockinasock
(And please don’t feel the need to share this with us)
There’s mucho chat / debate in the press about this. Apparently dogs are now wearing them on their tales too, so women can get in on the action (via their dog!)
The other campaign that has taken off this last week is the no make up selfie, raising £8m in a matter of days for Cancer Research:
Take a photo of yourself with no make up (horror of horrors apparently!) and then donate £3 to show how incredibly brave you are (honestly!)
Anyway women are loving this idea and are nominating each other using Facebook as a bit of a dare (Will you be brave enough to show the world what you really look like?). Interesting use of peer pressure!
