In the 1970s science fiction movie “Logan’s Run,” the citizens of the futurist society who desired a sex partner could use a holographic machine to find an ideal mate for that night. That person would the teleport directly to their home and the fun would start.
That schlocky movie was prophetic. We 21st century Americans routinely use technology to find sexual partners. Are you into chubby Asians, Indian women with big boobs, white guys who are barely legal, or black men with six-inch dicks? You can go online and with a few clicks of your mouse and a little patience find one to spend the night with you.
And even though we don’t have transporter beams most sexual hookups, at least in my area, can get to you within an hour by car or subway.
Has all this sexual freedom and ease in hooking up dulled gay men to the possibility of forming a deep, meaningful relationship? A true love connection?
I have a buddy from Oklahoma named “Shawn” who recently deleted his account on Adam4Adam.com because he was fed up with the bullshit, the string of casual, sexual encounters that led not to romantic love but freaky dead ends.
Shawn has a lot to offer. He is a handsome, big, beefy guy with chocolate skin and a dazzling smile. He lives in a well-decorated yet comfortable home, has interesting hobbies, and a small menagerie of pets. He is consummate professional with a decent job. But finding a relationship online stumped him.
Shawn called me earlier this week and asked me to ask blog readers these questions:
Have you ended up getting finding a love match with a guy you met online? If you did, how did you do it?
