Sex chats between strangers
Now, a new Facebook Messenger bot attempts to recreate that stranger-induced high with Chatible, which facilitates a random conversation between anonymous parties.
Unless you were on a listserv, that was as good as a social network as we knew it. Being masked was critical armor to navigate the landscape.
And with chatting, the option for anonymity and fun screennames was key, moreso because every conversation kicked off with a query of “age/sex/location? So it’s no surprise that apps that let you talk with total strangers reignite the appeal of the early internet.
I say “good email” but really this applies to all situations where you are communicating only in writing. Because you’re looking for sexy banter, it’s tempting to write “A/S/L” right out of the gate. That doesn’t mean you can’t be clear about what you’re looking for. Or, you might..with x number of people on Stranger at any given time..odds are against you and probably neither of you will know it.
Let’s face it, if you are trying to flirt by text or email you only have your words to get their attention! You click that “Chat with a Stranger” button and meet another Stranger in a completely private chat room. Show them what they’re getting when they talk to you. Your words need to do the talking - and touching, and looking..get the idea.
While it’s not a mirror return to the early days of instant messaging, it’s clear that blowing off steam with randoms in an environment that feels like an untrackable and totally private still holds a certain appeal for people (even if it’s just a mirage).
