What to Do If You Recognise Someone During Online Sex

By 00

If you are engaged in virtual sex through an online community, the chances are quite high that you will hardly recognise any of the other users. However, this depends entirely on the size of the site as well as the type of lifestyle you lead outside of the Internet. Still, what can you do if you happen to suddenly to view a friend, past lover or even a colleague on one of the sites? This is a delicate matter and of course, your reaction will depend on how well you know the person and the relationship that you have (or had) with them. Let us take a look at some of the best responses.


This may sound a bit brutal and tactless, but there are times when simply ignoring the person and logging off is the best option at your disposal. Such a case may arise if you notice a work friend of yours (or even a manager) on the opposite side of the virtual meeting room. However, it is a good idea to try and determine if they have also recognised you. If they have, a difficult and uncomfortable situation could arise. However, you are still safe to walk away and unlike many instances in life, it is likely wise to pretend that the meeting never took place.


This represents the other side of the proverbial coin. You will need to make certain that the other person is comfortable enough to chat before you initiate. This will arise from instinct combined with how well you know the person. If he or she is a casual friend, you may both find a bit of humour in the entire encounter. Or, perhaps you and your friend can start a physical relationship outside of the virtual sex portal. Sometimes, honesty is the best policy. Still, never forget that if you choose to engage in conversation, you can also ruin a friendship quickly.


This final approach represents a combination of the previous two suggestions. Also, this can be the safest choice in many circumstances. You can simply carry on as normal and see if the person is comfortable with you. Of course, this will somewhat depend upon whether or not they recognise you as a friend or acquaintance. There have even been instances when both individuals knew the other person and continued to engage in virtual sex as a type of "secret". This can be a fun and interesting twist to your life (as long as a jealous lover or a long-term relationship is not at stake).

Ultimately, you will have three choices if you happen to recognise someone during virtual sex. You can either:

  • Ignore the occasion.
  • Proactively begin chatting.
  • Wait and see what happens.

So, you can see that there is no single answer to accommodate for this unique situation. The best way to approach this event is with a bit of prudence, tact and most of all, by trusting what your instincts tell you to do.
