The tweet set off a huge wave of jokes

When she wanna evacuate but you tryna ejaculate

Well to break the fun, the photo does not show a man masturbating.

The man's pose doesn't indicate the activity in which he was engaged in before dying according to a volcanologist who studies the Pompeii victims. 

Pier Paolo Petrone told the Daily Dot:  

"The individual in the photo is an adult man, killed by the hot pyroclastic surge (hot gas and ash cloud which killed most of the population living around Mount Vesuvius), with both arms and legs flexed due to the heat,"

“most of the human victims found in Pompeii often show ‘strange’ position of arms and legs, due to the contraction of limbs as a consequence of the heat effect on their bodies after death occurred.”

And after the picture was turned into a black and white version and tweeted by @PersianRose1, it went Viral.

it earned over 187000 retweets and more than 400000 likes.
