Freak Groups, To Join or Not to Join

How I connect with my readers is i assumeIt’s your girl, Calypso Grier, reporting to you live from my front porch down in steamy Louisiana, where the skies are blue and the cicadas are humming up a storm. I’ve got a cup of coffee next to me and Arsen Ward’s new book up on my screen.

Let me just say right now, Mr. Ward has a way with words, with his kinky cute self! The quick-read, Wi-Fi Freaks, introduces a character named Cecily who finds herself in hot water when she decides to meet one of her online boos in real life. 

Reading it got me to thinking about sex groups/freak groups, or what have you, on these social media sites. I’ve heard about them. I know you’ve heard about them. I’ve even been added to a few by well-meaning, undercover freaky friends, but I always backed out the minute somebody’s naked booty flashed across my timeline. Now, Calypso is no prude, but I find it highly rude to be exposing me to your body parts without my permission!

But, in the interest of doing my dang job, this week I joined a sex group just to take a peek around and see what all the hype was about. What did I learn? *Buck-Eyed Blink*

I can’t divulge the group or the members, (You wanna know, don’t you? I’ll never tell! *Cackling Laughter*) but I discovered these everyday, ordinary folks turn to the internet to unwind and explore facets of their sexuality they might not be comfortable with showing to strangers in the real world. I saw plenty of what I expected to see: There were the absolutely wild naked pictures and video posts.

But I discovered the groups were about more than that. I saw a lot of flirting and hook-ups going on. The brothers were attentive and romantic in ways I haven’t seen in a LOOOONG time. The women were straight-forward about what they did or didn’t want, since nobody was in the group to judge others. It seemed folks used the freak group to get the attention they craved without seeming like attention whores, since everybody else was doing it!

I tried it out myself and posted a candid, but not too explicit photo of myself with an introduction of who I was and what I was doing there. I made it clear that my presence was strictly for research purposes. Within no time, I had friend requests, inbox messages, comments in the section beneath my photo and all kinds of activity. Now, I’m a nice looking girl, but these things simply don’t happen to me in real life!

It was easy to get caught up in the antics and get naughtier and naughtier with each foray into the free-for-all sex group as the week passed, and I began to understand how a person like Sense of Wonder from Wi-Fi Freaks could find herself biting off more than she could chew. If you’re in a sex group, you know exactly what I mean!

I politely declined the more aggressive suitors who took my research a little too seriously, and by the end of the week I quietly slipped from the group like I had never even been there. So, what I learned from my brief journey to the dark side is that the internet can be a vastly interesting place, a wonderful world for escaping our every day lives, but also an easy way to pretend to be someone we’re not. And, that’s where things get dangerous.

Always be yourselves, loves. 😉
