I am mostly too nervous to go on here. But when I do, I find it quite interesting. I don’t get what people are so freaked out about. It’s actually ( as pointed out in some online articles ) safer than normal as you can see exactly who you are talking to and you can hit next if you don’t like. It takes away the a/s/l question that you would always get from certain males on irc (or asl if they were typing 1 handed) as you can see pretty quickly (they have no shirt on or cam is pointed at their crotch) if they are that sort of loser.
I must admit I used my gorgeous child as cover once and that actually seemed to work well as she is cute and it disarmed people and seemed to break the ice. I am not brave enough to go on there without child or sober, which is a bit sad and pathetic really but that’s me.
The other night I put my son’s toy cat on my head. And, that seemed to work well. Anyone looking for p0rn next-ed quick. I got some hilarious faces then next-ed. And some gave me wry smiles and stopped to chat. I chatted to a few nice people that way.
But, even after they know I have 2 kids and am married and quite frankly not bringing the smut at all (and really being quite a ‘tard) they still (cos I have only ever spoken to guys, where are the girls?) offer to show me their penis or ask to see my boobs. And last night I was speaking to a seemingly nice guy in Vancouver and next thing I am speaking to his penis. I Next-ed real quick. But, I decided next time I am going to talk to the penis. That is if I can stop laughing my arse off.
Next time, I am going to take screen shots too. So anyone who is too scared to go on there can see the fun. I wasn’t overly impressed with the nightline story about it. The people who have used it were ok but it was very “OMG big scary internet thing is going to suck your children into the evil p0rn vortex”
Actually, I realised last night, I really don’t care so much for chatting with people on there. It gets very ordinary much too quick. I would rather try to freak people out a bit or just see the freaks.
