Imagine a time when just the simple sound of AOL dial-up was considered foreplay.

The folks at Found Footage has uncovered this ridiculous blast from the past: an instructional video made in 1997 on how to have cybersex on the Internet. As opposed to, you know, having cybersex anywhere else.

Much like anyone trying to tackle anything sex-related in the 90’s, the producers did not know whether to be serious or sexy when putting this together, so all we’re left with is a corny guide and a topless woman.

“We’ll also visit others who have mastered the art of one-handed typing,” the voice-over warns. How risque. Was cybersex ever this quaint? I guess the concept of cybersex alone was kinky enough in the year when the Spice Girls were deemed to provocative for American teens.
