killing kittens?

Have you or your neighbors killed any kittens lately? Way back in the mists of time, a farkism combined a kitty with a couple of domo-kuns and came up with a saying equating masturbation with killing a kitty.

This site has taken the concept and is attempting to make it into a community weblog -- except the community is limited to those who are taking solo flights into orgasm. The site seems almost innocent, at least now (though it'll probably get over-run with explicit commercial grossness in a while).

Although the interface is nowhere near as clean, my experience with the site reminded me of the early days of amihotornot. I was at it for hours, tripping out on who was masturbating in my state, and what they were thinking, let along who was doing what in other places all over the world (not many global participants, yet).
With this wierd mixture of deeply personal revelations and total anonymity, is this one of those things that only the internet can do? Or am I a total git for thinking this is interesting? (via memepool)

The addition of photos for some members makes this truly horrific...

And with that, killing kittens jumped the shark. No wait, is that "kittens were killed jumping over the shark"? How about, "if a meme falls on the internet, does it make a sound?"

I wouldn't say you're a total git. I'm sure you have many other admirable qualities.

I believe the link is farked.

The profiles are pretty amusing, with the descriptions of the events and what was going through their minds.

I look at this site that helps people advertise to the world a deeply personal thing and I feel old. What looks like a massive breach in personal privacy that can dog you your whole life is being totally embraced by younger people. They're openly sharing all this info.

I wonder what the web will look like in 50 years if things proceed at this pace.

Well, it looks like the two main links in the FPP both lead to, which returns nothing, but all the other links go to, which is a valid website. Maybe that's the problem. Can we get that edited/fixed?

This site makes me not want to meet anyone, ever. Many of the guys come off as utterly creepy, and most of the women do too - I think masturbation fantasies generally don't translate well in a public forum. Quel suprise.

Though that doesn't mean MeFi members are above doing it, of course.

i got into, but none of the data calls worked.

what's funny is that all of their 500 (or whatever internal server errors are) pictures are of naked women. where's the hot man ass action? not very gender equal, eh? it kinda leads me to think that most of those 739 "females" are "bending their anatomy."

but who knows? i couldn't get anything but the home page. i like the idea in theory, but have a feeling it will devolve into pop-ups and porn ads.

The entries from older woman have an air of such utter desperation about them. the younger have the braindead titallation of woman bought up on feel good moments and Friends

Needless to say utter bollocks.

My major observation was "Gosh, Ann Arbor is full of wankers." But I already knew that.

Didn't find it creepy. And, you know, if everybody and their brother starts sharing this sort of so-called incriminating information, maybe it'll cease to be incriminating.
