EN I get more than a few internet solicitations for "free pleasures" by gorgeous, young, unfulfilled, females. Ha! If they only knew that I am as old as Methuselah.

I wonder whether there are virile males out there who fall for that kind of come on.  What with the Covid, I reckon that those kinds of trysts would be dangerous for more than one reason.

I'm a member of some wood working forums...pauses for laughs and applause.

One of the guys was complaining about seeing lingerie ads at a wood working site. Of course, someone pointed out that the ads are targeted based on your search history. Busted...pauses for laughs and applause.  ;D I don't visit porn sites on the web...anymore...after having seen some things that just can't be unseen.

And I get ads for foreign women and ED drugs without ever having visited sites touting said ingredients. That's SPAM, plain and simple, and is simply deleted as such. My AOL accounts want to send a reminder to the offenders. Methinks that that will simply increase the intensity.
