Dirty one on one chat
The author of The Joy of Cybersex, Deborah Levine, had spent several years counseling college undergraduates at the Columbia University Health Education program. Like earlier safe-sex activists, Levine used bullet-point lists to introduce the sites her readers should know and to teach them the language that they would need to thrive on them.Levine encouraged them to use their computers to flirt, start online relationships, and explore their farthest-fetched fantasies without taking real-world risk. The pages she cited ran the gamut from tutorials for geeks, like to resources for free lovers like the Open Hearts Project and I cannot have been the only child of the Clinton era to have stumbled on the porn site doing social-studies homework.
Months later, the New York Times reiterated the point.She ceased to be “a rather mousy person — the type who favored gray clothing of a conservative cut …She became (through the dint of her blazing typing speed) the kind of person that could keep a dozen or more online sessions of hot chat going at a time.” The effects carried over into real life.I'm hard pressed to think of any case where I have heard a fluent English speaker say "chat to". The usual way to describe one-sided conversation would be using "at" as in: You wouldn't usually use "at" with chat though mainly I think due to the fact that chat implies an informal conversation generally enjoyed by both sides.Aside: There is of course also the distinct phrasal verb "chat up", but it has no bearing on the issue at hand.
