An experiment

I went to myspace.com to see how teens present themselves to the world. Since I am interested in sex and relationships, I browsed women, aged 18-19 who were single and looking for dating or a relationship. Some of the screen names on the first page were:

xUrBaNxFanTasY
Love Me
Tingles
Tequilia Makes My Clothes Fall Off
Baby Girl
BaBy DeVIL

PriceLess Beauty is wearing a fur coat and lingerie. When you click on her link, her website states that she is “the best thing that NEVER happened to you.”

xUrBaNxFanTasY doesn’t have much information in her space, but her entire “About Me” section consists of a single phrase:

xSouLxLesSx

Two women are in bikinis — one didn’t even bother to include her face.

These are the ways that young women choose to represent themselves to the online community in hopes of finding a relationship.
