Where Is The Love?


In a scene from the 2001 film Amélie, the title character sits on a Parisian rooftop and wonders “How many people are having an orgasm right now?” (“Fifteen,” the film informs her.) But that’s just Paris, and fictionalized Paris at that. If the social engineer in you demands true-to-life figures, check out I Just Made Love—a Google Maps-based website and smartphone application that not only tells you what your neighbors are doing, but how and why they did it. You can place an arrow on the site of the deed, list off the positions you assumed (tastefully presented by tiny blue and pink stick figures), say whether or not a condom was used or if it was your first time. … Look, I’ll just stop this shameful business and tell you what’s happening nearby. “Absolutely intense and amazing … we explored the pleasures of anal,” says a male/female couple at Sahara Avenue and Cimarron Road. “Bear attack!” declares a male/male couple near Pecos Road and Owens Avenue. “We both came at the same time,” effervesces a female/female couple in the vicinity of Bonanza Road and Eastern Avenue. Even if these aren’t strictly real-time figures (I imagine that people wash up before grabbing their smartphones), it’s fun to imagine that all of this hot monkey fun is going on while you watch the big map, waiting for your neighbors to check in.

It’s tough for me to write about websites like Draw a Stickman without giving away the thing that makes them so wonderful. Even if I were to describe it to you, it wouldn’t be as much fun as clicking over to the site, drawing a stickman using your mouse and following the instructions that pop up. You don’t have to be a great artist to enjoy the minor masterpiece that unfolds. You only have to have been 10 years old and stuck in a boring classroom, with only a No. 2 pencil and a Pee Chee folder to create a means of escape.
