Showtime’s L-Word series took a scripted, entirely fictional relationship chart concept online, allowing women to add their name and make connections to people they’ve “hooked up” within a sexual nature. Known as OurChart, the social networking site for lesbian and bi-sexual women was a hit. Now, there’s a site for heterosexuals and gays alike. It’s called Boffery.

Boffery.com is a place for you to document your sexual history and map [spiderweb-style] your sexual connections. You can share this information with trusted friends, and you have full control over who sees what.” -via

Why would anyone want to post the sex life online? We’re sure there’s as many reasons as there are STD’s, however, no judgments made, we’re betting it has something to do with wanting to step over the line a tad, or a jump over the line, you’re call. Boffery writes,

“This is a place for you to talk about your sex life in as much detail as you feel comfortable sharing. It can be your own private diary, or a conversation with friends and lovers, or some combination of both”.

Barely legal is about pushing the boundaries and celebrating societal taboos that leave others in astonishment, maybe in admiration, maybe in disgust. It doesn’t matter, because for those involved it ends in the same result:

“You did what!”

Bingo.

And whether users of this site will choose to disclose their partners out of well being and health risk factors, or for mere entertainment and humor amongst friends, or even as an actual dating tool to find romance, there’s something to be said for those who dare to use the site at all.  Barely Legal never fails to surprise us with the things people do in order to satisfy their more…experimental side.
