For five months now a virtual sticky note has been sitting on my Macbook dashboard that reads simply, “In the ether: Beautiful Stranger.” Those with an equal penchant for groping at verbally skilled strangers on the internet will remember how I tried to set up a social network for cybersex enthusiasts last summer, somewhere clean and well-lit that encouraged off-site hookups between like-minded, intelligent pervs. Good intentions, right?

I’d gotten so many emails since starting (and eventually finishing) my online sex column Click Me from would-be cyberers who couldn’t find a decent internet haven. It was lovely to be able to direct them to my site, newly formed — i.e. rough around the edges– as it was. Then, at the end of December, host site Ning.com purged all networks with adult content, sending Beautiful Stranger back into the internet oblivion. Well shit.

I write to you now, fellow naughty internet explorers, to implore you to rebuild where I left off. Sadly, as a full-time writer, a soon-to-be PhD candidate, and an even sooner-to-be bride, I don’t have the time to start a new, better (faster, stronger) Beautiful Stranger. But someone should do it. Not only is there money in it — a dating site for people with dirty minds who don’t want to meet in real life? Those people exist, to quote Frank N. Furter, in abundance — there’s need. NEED I tell you. How much longer can good people roam bad AOL forums weeding through teens and the spelling undead?

So if you’re at all interested in building a cybersex social networking site and you’d like to confer with me on the details (half a year running such a beast did teach me a few things), please feel free to get in touch. Alternatively, the next time you’re wasting precious hours of life scouring the internet for a cybersex haven, redirect that horny energy into working on this project. Yes, this one here. Because we proud pervs need to stick together. And how are we supposed to do that if there’s nothing to stick to? Insert raunchy joke about sticky seminal fluids here.

    I have such an urge to do it. xD Too bad I’m not so good with building sites… even though it’s an important part of my education. I just want to have it in my portfolio.

    A friend just mentioned he has some knowledge, so perhaps I can rope him in. Are you reading this, friend? Do it!
