Nice avatar! *FAP FAP FAP*

3 Jun

As promised in yesterday’s post, today I shall delve into one of my as-of-yet unexplored blog categories: sex.

All morning I was trying to figure out what to write about for today’s post. I mean, obviously there is no shortage of things to write about relating to sex and sexuality, but a) I don’t want to write anything vulgar (today), b) I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable (refer to previous parentheses), and c) where do you even begin?

I thought that perhaps, this being my first time posting in this category, that writing about first times might be appropriate and rather humorous. I mean, there are a lot of hilarious and embarrassing things to talk about when it comes to losing your virginity. But then, as I was waiting for my bus and contemplating this, the song Do You Wanna Date My Avatar by Felicia Day and the cast of The Guild came on my iPod. Note: If you do not know what I am talking about, I encourage you to explore those links. Otherwise, friends off.

That said, my response was, “Why yes, Felicia, I would date your avatar. Codex is HOT!” But I then realized I was referring to Felicia Day dressed as Codex. Not Codex herself. Did this post just get really nerdy? In any case, that got me thinking, there really are a lot of people who are sexually attracted to avatars. And I don’t mean in the stigmatic and perverted way that these people are portrayed through stereotypes and reputation. I mean in the sense that they can be playing their MMOs, encounter a digitized version of archetypal hotness and, well, get off.

I should point out that I am not trying to make fun of this, say that it’s weird, or that I am above it. If you know me, you know that I am all for free sexuality. Ok, now that that’s out of the way, where was I? Oh, right. Avatar fetish. I started thinking about this, and the sheer level of accessibility and vast array of options and customizability that come with this kink. You can create anything you desire, you can be dominating, you can be a voyeur, you never have to search for a partner, well, unless you wanted to, and you don’t even need to keep a stash of paraphernalia and cleaning solutions tucked away in the closet (or bathroom, or coffee table…). Sounds pretty awesome to me.

Ok so you don’t have the same intimate emotional connection as with humans, in most cases. And there are no smoke-n-spoon follow-ups. Or a ton of other things, really. But I asked myself, is this a fetish of desperation? Or enlightenment? Sure, you might have the folks who can’t find and IRL mate and indulge on an exclusive diet of porn and erotic RPGs (which I am not discounting, btw), but seriously, no awkward mornings, no embarrassing surprises, no TFLN moments. No setting yourself up for disappointment (if your avatar turns you down, you’ve got serious issues at hand ;] ). I think perhaps that the wisdom of these enlightened individuals has been prejudicially overlooked.

Ha. I just remembered watching an episode of The Twilight Zone (circa Forest Whitaker) where a man gets caught up between the dimensions of a virtual reality video game, and its rather sultry and seductive female lead, and his real life. Lol.

On that note, let’s all go attempt to seduce the ever-libidinous Ariane, shall we?

Ta-ta 😉

    interresting thought. I hear the distant sound of people banging the drum for the “loss of social interaction do to internet” brigade, but the truth is with all these new forms of media and interaction, as it has ever been the most important thing is what the person using them is mentally bringing to the table. Some may be unprepared or undisciplined enough to deal with the freedom and consequences of this type of sexual interaction but I think most won’t be. Thats why as with any sexual fetish however weird or strange it may seem if its engaged in by consenting adults of sound mind the very least you can do is to leave them alone and let them get on with it.

      Lol, yeah but a sizable quotient of that brigade wouldn’t believe in sexual desire anyway, would they 😛

      I totally get the avatar thing. I guess I forgot to mention that in the post. I remember being in middle school and creating avatars on the Doll Palace and being like SWEET! They’re topless until you cover them! Hot! lol. Also. Hentai. Mmmmm.

    avatars just don’t do it for me. too much of a disconnect from humanity. but i get it. i don’t look down on it. i just don’t get it.
    haha! i just said i get it, then said i don’t get it! gee! if THAT’S not clarity!
    i get it that you can get gratification. i’m all in for sexual freedoms and all that.
    i don’t get it in that I don’t get anything out of avatars. i can’t relate.
