A man sits at his computer and logs onto the interactive game “Caught Looking.” He watches as he guides his virtual self through passages, in black and white. He considers but passes on opportunities with rough trade, a teen boy, a threesome, sex in a public toilet, and the kitsch of retro 50’s muscle mystic in the Grotto of Tiberius. He sends his virtual self back to a pair of sailors, whom he films in 8mm. Then he meets a young man, a Tunisian named Karim. The man at the computer screen is interested. His ironic and self-mocking commentary ends; his tone changes. What will happen with Karim? Has our virtual voyeur been caught looking?
