In the aughts the sex symbols were the shiny people who live far away from you. And there was something obviously fake and trashy about it that fed into the whole experience- photoshop, plastic surgery, prestige. Fake perfect people in a real, or at least relatable world. And that there was a need for augmentation actually made the entire thing more viscerally sexual in the way it nodded towards earthly imperfections. Now the people are real- the random girl in yugoslavia is without the means for surgery or photoshop- but the sample size is infinite. the algorithm finds the 1 in 1 million perfect symbol every time. theres no element of imperfection- your looking at sprites, angels, unearthly beings. And they stylize themselves in an unreal way. Even those not specifically doing cartoon cosplay are are out of space and time in that the spaces they are photo'd in give no acknowledgment to any space outside the room. the screen is the entire context. Real perfect people in a fake world.

You can just say 'the internet' if you like. We're all friends here, right?
its tad different. algorithms via apps and websites pluck from the infinite field that is the internet all the beautiful people. I thought since were talking about anime cat girls on tik tok that everybody would understand what I meant by algorithm.

the word parasocial got invented a few years ago as part of a way to think of this didnt it?
you could certainly get obsessed with an image before, as stalkers attest to, but without nearly the same
access and constant content.

Internet sped up evolution and certain things have reached their logical ends. Like hands said with the perfect beard thing. Fashion. Music. Culture. Sexual imagery/presentation/libido. Basest level it's ever been? Can it go any lower without crossing into straight up porn?

so we notice events like the shorts that leave the bottom half of the arse exposed, side-boob and underboob, no bra....

"We're not pervs or anything, but the average amount of arse on display in the 20-35 female demographic has increased by 3% per year on average since 2015. Approximately."

OK so you mean telly bandwidth was comparatively narrow compared to net lung burger?
yes. hence the need for all the augmentation- photoshop, surgery and etc. Now theres less need for that because the internet will just find the perfect image ready made without need for any added effect. Patty and Luka are talking about the culture of contemporary libido which is worthy enough but I was more interested in what happens in the brain when you see a hyper-real image of a movie star in a bikini by the pool for a perfume ad vs. the more contemporary image of an internet it girl taking pitcures on her webcam in the dull box that is her room.

I think it's less about brain cos that just goes pudda pudda pudda and more about what changes sociallly and aesthetically about what can arouse pudda
