Man Seeks Man for Spanking

It’s 1999 and Internet dating is quite a thing.

And already, only the truly oblivious don’t wonder how wise is putting it out there.

Those hairy fat perverts pretending a sweet young thing from whose wicked family she must escape, if only an air fare might deposit in her account.

Back then, in this wonderful provincial township, the staid old broadsheet found personals classifieds in this modern era still too indelicate for their traditional readers, though it eyed them enviously as that damned Interwebs was really, really starting to eat advertising revenue.

Across town in the offices of The Star – an advert-jammed tabloid giveaway – no such qualms paused the keyboards. It devoted every available column inch to persons seeking companionship, whatever the degeneration. “Horny creep with no moral boundary seeks female debauchee.” Ka-ching!

So it was that Throsby thought to commit his lonesomeness to a “personals classified,” his honest shingle swinging amid myriad swingers of apparent sexual abandon. But to compose a tempting promotional was a cruel lesson in self appraisal. And after reading all that follows below, those promiscuous word salads soiled his innocence and he gave up. The mission then was to find someone on the other side who had deftly leapt that hurdle.

He read perhaps hundreds of pleading messages constrained only by cost per letter and vocabulary – not, apparently, by inhibition or imagination. They the hopeful had also been reading and absorbing and composing in a feedback loop whereby phrase after glorious phrase morphed into fabulous, hilarious cliche.

Here are some.

Glossary ~ Personals Acronyms Explained

Not only the acronyms need explaining, but those strange coded words and phrases.

So you are new to this. What exactly is that (strange mysterious) person saying in their advertisement? After all, you don’t want to make a fool of yourself – at least not immediately.

Ladies, when men specify “slim attractive lady”, you should be very wary. A man who wants ‘slim attractive’ has done YOU a favor – skip him! He wants a dream, not a person.

Men, don’t say that!! There isn’t a woman on Earth who believes she IS “slim and attractive” and yet doesn’t desperately wish to be. Examine your motives for even thinking that.
