In a world of instant message clients that feel like a Tokyo Pop fever dream, Gchat was proudly text-based.
Putting functionality first, it co-existed with Gmail without ever trying to overpower it.
Sexologists usually try to cure this with even more information and concentration on sex, and for many people that might be helpful because they have no words of their own to articulate their sexual needs and desires.
But there are those others for whom this doesn’t work because they suffer from a kind of sex poisoning.
This can only be cured by going back to the roots which aren’t anatomical, technical, or visual but primordial, archaic, and spiritual.
Sex as “just sex” quickly becomes empty and shallow if the connection to Eros gets cut.
When you clicked on a name to message someone, you could send them text, and later initiate a video conference, but So for those of us who loved the old Gchat, the new Hangouts pane that replaces it is a fucking nightmare.
Sometimes, the orderly process of cell growth, death, and replacement becomes compromised.
