Absolutely - it's not about finding people to bonk - a fairly trivial
enterprise in this deeply civilized country - more the joy of seduction,
of being seduced, of playing out all those fantasies that are, in real
life, too expensive, too illegal, too embarrasing or just too boring to
Everseduce should be a world, with avatars. I am astounded by the number
of people who have actually have a virtual pet in their keitai (I think
the iappli comes with 504 series, but I may be mistaken) feeding it, etc
etc. (Why oh why did no-one ever code up a "kintama-gochi" for the high
school girl market?) Everseduce would take it just one step futher.
