SMSing around for a one-night stand
[Via Hindustan Tines]
Some describe mobile texting using this words: ‘urban depressive signals’. Apparently, there’s another description to the sms thing: SMS sex-clubbing is the latest urban social phenomenon...now playing out in Urban India. There are websites where you can become a member for a annual fee of as little as Rs 1,000 ($23) and get to access a database of cell numbers. After this, you can start fixing some blind dates…err, via mms hopefully. Asking for a picture seems a pretty smart step to take in that virtual vortex called e-communication. Vineet, a 30-year-old freelance advertising copywriter from Delhi, went for a blind date — in March this year — when a woman SMS-ed him thrice and said that she was interested in having a “literary” discussion. Literary discussion…Damn, I miss that! Another example: Shalini , a 27-year-old PR executive in Mumbai, carries two mobiles: one’s her regular business number; the other’s for pleasure. She calls herself a compulsive “SMS sex-clubber”.
Young professionals have no time to waste on romance,says sexologist Dr Prakash Kothari.
It’s an age of instant gratification, and all they want is a one-night stand for quick releaseP.s. Some say this can be dangerous: you don’t know anything about the person you’re going out with. Except, of course, the mobile number. Anyway, it’s good to always check for what lies underneath your 'chosen one'. And if you’ll find what you’ve been searching for…well, wrap it up and take it home. I mean the hole body...
