Chat nasty roulette

First, a bit on how these sites work: sign on to Omegle, click "text" and a message pops up that says, "You are now chatting with a random stranger. " Chatting starts out relatively innocuous, though in the five times I tried, most "strangers" wanted to know if I was male or female, or told me if they were (they were all male).

That said, I worry that the sites further loosen the social rules about what you should and shouldn't say to another person - at the exact moment when young women are developing their communication skills.

Unlike chatting with people you know, you really can say anything here, and there truly are no consequences.

Which is the thing about Chatroulette and Omegle: when it gets sexual, you're sexting with a stranger, so it feels a whole lot easier to do.

In a recent blog about the website Formspring, I argued that Formspring took cyberbullying to a new level (and low) by making it appear consensual.

GK, 17, says, "Chatroulette has a fine line between funny and a good time to creepy and borderline pedophile.

In my experience there were many guys that I encountered, mostly older by themselves or with a friend.

The first thing they ask is if they can get anything, such as a girl to expose herself or something with no strings attached.

This is entertainment for them and some girls think it's just as entertaining to go along with it." On Omegle, says JS, "almost half the time you log onto the site, the first thing the stranger you get connected to says 'slutty?

You can easily switch to chat with another user by clicking "stop" or "next;" so can your partner.

In the five times I tried as I was writing this, I got two masturbating men (with tight shots of their exposed genitals), two men's faces, and one man who texted "baby like China sex." Did I mention a ton of teen girls frequent this site?

AF thinks these sites are okay as long as girls stay smart.
