Since I can remember I have always been up to no good on internet. It started when I was very young, with my father’s first computer. I used the archaic chat rooms where you needed to know HTML code if you wanted something to come up a different colour. I would flirt and play with guys on line telling them what I was wearing and how I was touching myself. I was 15 at the time I think. I grew up with the internet and it was easy to get pulled into it. I was safe in a way because it wasn’t easy to actually see anyone. I didn’t even have an email at that time. There were no cameras or microphones, the internet was a baby.
I remember one guy that I chatted with, we masturbated to each other’s words, he suggested I get a hotmail account so I could send him a picture of myself and vice versa. I was young and naive thought “hotmail” was some dirty thing. The name sounded bad in that context. Not two years later I had a hotmail account. Not to exchange pictures with strangers but to actually communicate with my family while on my travels.
When I got my own computer at the age of 21 I also got a dialup internet line and started with the chatting again when my partner was out working (yes, the same partner I have now). I went through a period where I’d head to the chatrooms and ‘pick up’ guys and transfer them to an MSN account where we could actually see each other on cam, strip and masturbate together. I had my own cam set up, there was no audio at that time with MSN. I remember so many odd people, guys with strange fetishes, one with a shoe fetish, one with a bodily functions fetish (I won’t go into the gruesome detail) others who were just lonely. I met a few guys during that time who I became quite good friends with. They’ve been on my contact list and in my email address book forever. They are still there now.
One of them is of course my lover. We still play together on Skype, like today, I stripped for him, showed him some skin talked dirty while I watched him work his cock until he came. It was beautiful. I love watching him.
Fact is though, today kids are exposed to it constantly. I don’t think parents have any idea how easy it is. Most parents of children in this day and age didn’t really grow up with internet and have very little idea as to how much their kids get up to online. To be honest I barely know myself, but I have a slightly better understanding than most I think. Things have changed drastically since I started using the internet, now you can access it from a phone. Any child with internet access on their phone or computer also has access to seeing naked men and women.
Kids have skype and msn, gmail (not to mention others) with audio, video and chat capabilities. There are thousands of chatrooms where kids can meet other kids or adults and the talk is often sexual. There are places like Chatroulette where (the last time I went, which was last year) 90% of the video shots are men masturbating. I have seen the numbers of kids (ages 7-99) on there. I have been shocked to see grown adult men with 6 or 7 year old children on chatroulette. (If you don’t know what chatroulette is look it up here on Wiki).
If I had a kid I’d be constantly paranoid about it. I could handle a teenager, I think teenagers have excellent capabilities of adapting and figuring out good from bad for themselves, but it’s the pre-teens I’d be most worried about. I’d be a nazi with my child if he or she had a computer or even an iPhone. It’s just too easy these days to get sucked into the wrong situation.
