Awesome erotica for awesome adults only
Back in the mid 90s, as people were slowly coming to the realization that there was an Internet out there, regular folks realized there was some fun to be had on the DoD’s mighty information sharing network.
First, a little background. A lot of what people thought was new and revolutionary at the time was, in fact, kind of old hat. The Internet didn’t spring to life in the mid 90s through some miraculous machine abiogenesis, it had actually been around for decades. It was just that something happened and all of a sudden everyone needed to GET ONLINE, like RIGHT NOW.
This chaotic time spawned abhorrent creatures like AOL, CompuServe, and EarthLink. In this enlightened day and age, they seem like dinosaurs, sluggish ISPs that only old people still use, but at the time, they were bleeding edge. Their price tags reflected that bleeding-edgeness, too. At one point I figured to be online for 40 hours a month through AOL would cost something like $400.
Not kidding on that one.
Also, as an interesting corollary to that fact, if you’ve ever wondered why Outlook and other email clients have a send/receive all button, that’s why. You typed up everything, got all your ducks in a row, fired up your trusty modem, connected, sent your messages, and disconnected as quickly as possible because it was freaking expensive to be online in those days. That and if you’re working in a place where you don’t have an Internet connection.
Now, no one cares since DSL and Cable are 24/7 operations, but back then, you could rack up a Hell of an Internet bill in pretty short order. But, on the plus side, it was super slow, so it had that going for it. For instance, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to download an image on a 14.4 modem, it was kind of like this:
And, yes, it did fail pretty frequently.
So, while all this is going on and people are racking up enormous charges, some folks discovered chat rooms, which were really just the old BBS systems with a new name. Truth be told, Facebook is actually just a BBS with a better interface, but that’s neither here nor there. Point is, as soon as people started talking to each other on chat rooms they rapidly discovered they could talk about sex.
Which leads us to the time machine portion of this rambling blast from the past. At some point in the past someone actually decided to make a short movie on how to Cyber Sex with other people. Watch, and be amazed.
