The Clickable Clit: "Working in a Real Office Makes Cybersex Difficult"

By Bonnie Ruberg

The Clickable Clit continues this week with more adventures from the personal diary of an SF-based cybersex expert.

Working in a real office makes cybersex difficult
Friday, October 10

I’m a work-from-home kind of writer. Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t play well with others, or that I have a hard time taking orders, or just that I sometimes prefer hanging out at my computer without pants. Whatever the reason, my home office environment is highly conducive to cybersex. There’s no one around to stare awkwardly at my screen, or to comment on my methods. I can get as hot and bothered or as bored as I like because I’m all by myself.

Last week, however, I rented an actual office space down in SoMa from a friend and fellow writer. Part of an entire writers’ complex, my particular office was spacious, well-furnished, welcoming: everything a normal human would want in a work environment. Personally, I spent most of my time worrying about my huge windows, which faced an interior atrium. What could my fellow office mates see? If I was just typing, nothing — but still. When I’m on the clock at home, cybersex definitely feels like work. Sitting in a space shared by other people, however, it somehow seems more inappropriate than watching episodes of Family Guy on Hulu.

Needless to say, this past week has not been the sexiest one in my recent history. I’m already in the process of setting up an online date with a friendly stocking fetishist later this week, however — plus I’m back in the comfort of my own living room. You know what that means: tune in next week for the juicy details.

Enlisting help with Beautiful Stranger
Monday, October 13

Beautiful Stranger, my cybersex matchmaking site, has nearly 100 members these days. It may not seem like a lot, but it’s more than I can patrol given the whole “time is money” thing. That’s why I’ve put out a call on the site for a moderator, someone who’ll be my eyes and ears. My hope is that that person can help me keep things sexy but not crude — which, in turn, will hopefully attract a high-quality membership that’s at least somewhat balanced male/female.

Of course, I may just be handing off power to someone waiting to abuse it. At the moment, my volunteer — an eager Beautiful Stranger himself — is poised to take up his moderating responsibilities. I just need to put together a document telling him what to report and what to let slide. Maybe it’s all the economics on the news, but I feel a bit like I’m stepping into a free market system and regulating it. Would it be better if I just set up the site and let it develop as users see fit? Or at that rate would it spiral into a land of horny boys who head elsewhere anyways in search of more willing females?

There goes airplane cybersex
Tuesday, October 14

Apparently having online sex at 30,000 feet isn’t such a good idea after all.

According to AVN, American Airlines and Delta have now both officially decided to block passengers from viewing “adult websites” while using the paid, in-flight WiFi that recently became available for certain domestic flights. The decision has been made in response to concerns from flight attendants, who say they’ve faced adult content issues before in the form of magazines and DVDs. Apparently fellow passengers also complained. It’s currently unclear how the “filtering technology” American and Delta hope to implement will work. Even if flyers can’t view porn, will they still be able to access chat rooms and clients for cybersex?

Lucky for us, even if cybersex in mid-flight has to stay a fantasy, at least someone is writing about that fantasy. According to Rachel Kramer Bussel, the editor of the upcoming collection of erotica The Mile High Club: Plane Sex Stories, there’s at least one online sex story in there. Unfortunately, the collection doesn’t come out until January — but when it does I recommend sitting on airplanes and reading it in plain sight. Take that, squeamish flight attendants.
