‘How To Have Cybersex’: Watch Ridiculous Tips From 1997

Millennials didn't invent sexting -- we just made it less silly-looking than Generation X, as this VHS classic proves.

It’s Throwback Thursday and National Orgasm Day, so why not celebrate both with “How to Have Cybersex on the Internet,” a recently discovered instructional VHS tape from 1997? It’s the most sensual time capsule you’ll ever see, by which we mean the least sensual — but maybe the most awkwardly funny:

“How to Have Cybersex on the Internet” will be screened along with other retro gems at Found Footage Festival in New York, which explains, “This 1997 instructional video can’t decide whether to be informational or sexy and, as a result, succeeds at neither. Tedium has never been this topless.”

Can’t make it to NYC for the festival? You can buy the tape on eBay right now for the low, low price of $99.99. A wise investment to impress everybody on Tinder.
