My first reaction to the story was amusement, as it sounds like the Orgasmatron in that Woody Allen film come to life. However on reflection, sadly in our disconnected fearful world this is the next logical step from cyber and 'phone sex, so providing they can find an efficient way of fleecing sad lonely men (not a difficult thing to do!), I expect this technology to develop and be very successful. So it may not be too long before someone in a vast gleaming concrete and glass building does say something like "May I introduce you to Dr Spungo, he heads up the teledildonics division here at Cybersex International."

i saw a site a long whaile ago that had a device that mounted in a 5 1/4" bay in your pc
(sold in 2 parts, male/female)

enabling 2 people to "screw" each other over the 'net using software that read movement of one device and transmitted it to the other

interesting idea, but i can't imaging being able to fit into such a small hole

Yeah, ct, the old thing was the first thing that came to my mind. While I knew the name, and might have gotten the URI right, I did a quick Google search, and right at top was this:

I think that's when a fu-fme hooker says "no you're too ugly."
There's gotta be a joke in there somewhere "He's so ugly that even a virtual hooker wouldn't sleep with him".

Although I was thinking more along the lines of someone hooked up to the system being deluged by requests such that they couldn't do anything else.

Actually, the HTTP status codes could easily be adapted to intimate relationships, it'd be much more suitable than looking for rings on fingers, and more direct than talking. I could see uses for 401 (Unauthorized), 402 (Payment required), 405 (Method Not Allowed), 413 (Request Entity Too Large), 417 (Expectation Failed), 503 (Service Unavailable), for a start [Wink]

Who knew RFCs could be so much fun?

I am glad someone else enjoyed Wired News's invention of that word.

I wonder TFD, what the logo of your organisation might look like? Something thrusting and futuristic in a 1930s Deco style perhaps. We ought also to devise a motto or strap line to go with it too.

I can also see a use for 412 (too many connected users)

was your use of strap deliberate? If so, great, if not, good Freudian slip. [Big Grin] [Wink]
