Masturbate chat random
"They appeared, one by one, in a box at the top of my screen -- a young Asian man, a high-school-age girl, a guy lying on his side in bed -- and, every time, I'd feel a little flare of excitement," he wrote.
"It started to feel like a social-anxiety nightmare.
(CNN) -- On Chatroulette, a new and controversial Web site, every click lands you in a face-to-face video conversation with a random stranger.
The setup is simple: Activate your webcam and click "play." Then, as people from all over the world pop up one at a time in a box on your screen, you decide whether or not to chat with them.
Conversation shuffle Still, many of the interactions on Chatroulette could be charitably described as fleeting.
In New York magazine, Sam Anderson wrote that after logging onto the site one day he was rejected immediately by the first 18 people he encountered.
And online dating services like Woo Me use similar features.
Another stood in front of his computer making wave motions with his hands, refusing to respond to anything I typed." When CNN tested the site, one man said he had had a meaningful one-hour conversation through the site.

On Chatroulette, every interaction is an adventurous gamble.
There's no heed to class, race, geography, age, politics or religion.
The site has been called many things: the new Wild West of the Internet; a speed-dating replacement; a cesspool of porn; a voyeuristic follow-up to Alfred Hitchcock's film "Rear Window"; a way to get people from different social groups to interact.
Jason Kottke, a prominent blogger, wrote that Chatroulette "is pretty much the best site going on the Internet right now." But even the haters seem to agree that the site generates a certain potentially addictive intrigue -- whether it comes from the rush of meeting a new person, or the fear of seeing a stranger who's not wearing any clothes.
