From this week’s column, “Coming Out Cybersexy” or “The delicate art of telling people you’re an online hussy”:

The day I sit down, look my mother in the eye, and tell her I like having sex with strangers on the internet is the day I choke myself with a giant glittery dildo. The day my mother Googles me, on the other hand, and uncovers my shameless rants about sleeping with various virtual playmates for the sake of decadent “research” . . . Well, that day came long ago. Plus, apparently I have no gag reflex. So here I am.

The point is this: no matter how sex positive or proud you are, coming out as a cybersex enthusiast to your family and friends can be downright hard. Despite the opening of a few select minds, when most people hear “sex on the internet,” they still think of perverts, pedophiles and other nasty creatures that go bump in the chat-room night. So whether you decide of your own free will to “come out”—or whether a chat window left open does the outing for you—you should be armed with some tactics less drastic than sex toy asphyxiation for explaining your online sex life to the people in your real one…

    Excellent article as usual, Bonnie. :-)

    The boss thing can be particularly interesting depending on the culture of where you work. My wife and I once went to a “tupperware” party (protip: not tupperware!) being hosted by one of my female coworkers, and my boss was there. That was a social dynamic I hadn’t experienced before. ;-)

    My current job is a little more traditional in terms of workplace interaction, so I pretty much keep my personal life to myself there, with the exception of those who have become friends.

    Wow, that’s a euphemism I’ve never heard of/thought of before. I have so much more respect for tupperware now :). How was the experience in general? Do tell!
