Gaydar’s chat-rooms enable you connect with other queer guys
In terms of the internet, the concept of joining a chat-room might seem a bit old-school, but – when it comes to connecting with other people online – they’re a surprisingly good way of meeting people, joining conversations, and sharing information.
Chat-rooms are part of the community functionality of the Gaydar dating platform. Gaydar’s chat-rooms are a great online tool that you can use to supplement your social life and make some human connections.
When you log-in to Gaydar’s chat-rooms, you’ll see that there are a whole range of different options available. You can join chat-rooms that are based on your location or chat-rooms that are dedicated to topics that you’re interested in. You can join the chat-room and see what everyone is talking about, or you can take your conversation into a private chat if you want to explore a topic one-on-one.
There’s obviously a sexual edge to a lot of the conversations in the various chat-rooms, but there’s also plenty of guys just reaching out to connect with other people in different parts of the world.
Being part of a chat-room is a great way to share thoughts, experiences, and fantasies. The chat-rooms are self-moderated by users – anything that seems inappropriate or potentially abusive can be reported to the Gaydar support team.
Obviously, chat-rooms are only as good as what you put into them. If you can’t find a conversation in a chat-room that interests you, why not start a new conversation and see who’s online? You never know who you’ll meet in a the Gaydar chat-rooms.
What about an online sex party?
During lock-down, we’ve had to get a bit innovative with meeting our needs for intimacy. One of the solutions has been to take the concept of a sex party online.
While a number of event organisers have been running official online sex parties, this is the kind of thing that you can organise fairly informally with a few guys that you know.
What’s the technology for an online sex party?
One of the challenges for online sex parties is that most tech companies aren’t huge fans of nudity, porn, or anything remotely sex-positive.
There’s a couple of different reasons for this. The regulatory framework in the US is particularly tough on anything that might be considered to be facilitating sex-work. Tech companies are also sensitive to pressure from their shareholders not to be providing a platform for porn. There’s also additional restrictions from the payment providers that tech platforms rely on – payment providers have additional content restrictions that could see them withdraw services from companies that are breaching the content standards required by payment providers.
Is Zoom a good option for an online sex party?
At the moment, Zoom seems to be the go-to option for all sorts of group video calls – including sex parties. However, Zoom don’t really want you to use their technology for sex parties.
Zoom’s user policies prohibit pornography or engaging in sexual acts online. So, in theory, Zoom could block you from using their platform if they detect you getting naked, or if someone reports you for getting naked.
Zoom have said that they’re going to be policing this and cracking down on anyone using the platform for sex parties. It’s not clear though how they would go about doing that.
