The time-honored trope of boy-chases-girl-until-girl-catches-him is upended when gender-free identities create quantum confusion in our electronic entanglements: If sex becomes virtual, can I experience coincident orgasms across two or more apps? Is the male g-spot non-transferable among legless avatars? And precisely what color will spooge glow under a black light in the Metaverse? Questions such as these cloud the hunt for the squeeze we call main, unless, of course, our Cartesian affections are assuredly non-binary.
