its both Id say. beautiful people are always going to arouse regardless of social context. You show a caveman a bikini clad celebrity by the pool and an internet girl in a skimpy cosplay and hes going to get excited about both

yes. hence the need for all the augmentation- photoshop, surgery and etc. Now theres less need for that because the internet will just find the perfect image ready made without need for any added effect. Patty and Luka are talking about the culture of contemporary libido which is worthy enough but I was more interested in what happens in the brain when you see a hyper-real image of a movie star in a bikini by the pool for a perfume ad vs. the more contemporary image of an internet it girl taking pitcures on her webcam in the dull box that is her room.

Presumably the latter feels slightly more attainable so the arousal is heightened? A bit like the charm of relating to the boy/girl next door types who've advanced positions in film&tv roles in the last couple of decades. Brings it closer.

I'd never buy gamer girl bath water cos how could you verify it was hers? I mean, leaving aside the question of what you'd do with it once you had it.

Farts in a jar, used underwear, all these surrogates for physical proximity and touch

Have you read Stan's big thread on porn and wanking? That seems very apposite. It was way better than this thread. He was going into detail about why wanking to porn is better than a person and it was quite convincing.

It's a bit serial killer-y, the kind of stuff you'd hear about some weirdo taking as a souvenir from his crime scene.

The gamer girl thing is pretty cool. I wonder if there is room for a reader girl and you just watch her reading in a short plaid skirt, occasionally sighing. Or she could be reading in the bath with a scented candle. Craner remembers Kodwo Eshun and K-Punk having a very excitable conversation about the 'hottest theory girls' on a nightbus about twenty years ago.

Obviously girls don't play computer games or read so the fantasy of a girl that does is so marketable. Or a weed smoking or record collecting girl. Ghost world taps into those male fantasies a little,
