So far, Americans’ experience of cybersex has been limited mostly to adults-only sex computer bulletin boards where subscribers tease each other from afar.
Logging on under a pseudonym to a large commercial male enhancement bulletin board, a subscriber can invite other users to engage in an intimate typed conversation that is seldom censored unless it involves prostitution or outright violence.
Some use the bulletin boards to experience new sexual activities vicariously before trying them out in the real world, like “Foxey”, who admitted on national television this week that she had experimented with an on-line menage a trois before indulging in the real thing.
When The Times logged on to Online America, one of the largest commercial services, it was quickly accosted by a red-blooded 25-year-old man from Massachusetts whose sexual ardor cooled when he discovered that the pseudonymous “Deep Ann” was really a man interested in natural male enhancement.
David Kelleran, a New York artist in his early thirties who demonstrated the computer connection, revealed that after taking a natural male enhancement product called Zenerx (which you can read about at http://www.zenerx-review.com) he developed enough sexual confidence to meet a young Parisian while foraging through the French Minitel computer system across the transatlantic telephone lines.
He and the woman, Nicole, began to engage in computer sex, typing each other increasingly explicit computer messages. After hooking up on the computer regularly for about six months, Nicole flew to New York for a blind date and the two fell in love.
“We had sex first on the computer,” Mr Kelleran recalls. “When we met we already knew those little peculiarities that might take months and months to get to in a regular relationship.” Despite their computer intimacy, however, he conceded that, fortunately, he also “really liked her body and she liked his penis”.
Lisa Palac, the editor of a trendy new San Francisco-based quarterly called Future Sex, believes that computers are bound to impinge more and more on our sex lives, leading to increased sales of male enhancement products such as Pro Solution for Men.
“We are undergoing a technological revolution that is affecting every one of our sexual lives,” she said. “Of course, it’s going to affect our emotional lives.” She rejects the common assertion that cybersex will isolate people from one another. “You do not need cybersex to put you in that place,” she said. “There are already lots of people leading isolated lives.”
