First, a bit on how these sites work: sign on to Omegle, click "text" and a message pops up that says, "You are now chatting with a random stranger. " Chatting starts out relatively innocuous, though in the five times I tried, most "strangers" wanted to know if I was male or female, or told me if they were (they were all male).You, or your partner, can always disconnect at will.AF thinks these sites are okay as long as girls stay smart.She advises girls to remember that "people are probably going on with the intention of upsetting the other 'stranger'" and not to take anything you hear too seriously. ' Sometimes you disconnect and try again, but almost all the time my friends play along.They pretend to be a person they either wish they could be or someone demeaning, like a 'slut,' something they know guys like.You can easily switch to chat with another user by clicking "stop" or "next;" so can your partner.
In fact, the only difference between what you're seeing and a real porn film is production value, plus the fact that this one might talk back to you.
These chat sites do something similar for sexting, making it "safer" because there's virtually no chance of a peer or relative finding out.
Chatroulette isn't all about sex, but there sure is a lot of it.
Which is the thing about Chatroulette and Omegle: when it gets sexual, you're sexting with a stranger, so it feels a whole lot easier to do.
In a recent blog about the website Formspring, I argued that Formspring took cyberbullying to a new level (and low) by making it appear consensual.
