After some meandering small talk, the boy in the middle, the typist (therefore the leader), admitted their motivation for using the new Internet (and media) sensation, Chatroulette: “We want to see boobs, but with, like…talking.” Chances are you have at least heard of Chatroulette.

There's also a lot of girls with the camera pointed at their cleve, cutting off at the neck..of them was bouncing up and down.
