On Emotional Exhibitionism
in defence of (not) zippergutting


By no means am I condemning the practice, but it is amazing to me that people will post, for all the world to see, what they would not normally discuss with their closest friends. Or what they would discuss with their closest friends--which is sometimes worse.

By saying worse I am passing judgement, for which I apologize.

Anyway, what I want to write about is how similar this strikes me to posing naked in front of a webcam.

I see this need to expose oneself, to become vulnerable, for an undefined and, therefore, possibly infinite audience.

I understand this appeal. But in my own prudish way, I refuse to give into it.

Never will I appear on this blog naked, that's a promise you can take to the slots.

I have more to say but it's escaping me.

We'll take later.

  1. Hmm... I'm an emotional exhibitionist and a dancing exhibitionist. But I'd never pose naked on the net, either. That's just too much.
