Chat and flirt and onlinesex
The chat room becomes very sexually charged as everyone talks dirty.
It's also a less intimidating way to get to meet partners before jumping into a one-to-one private chat.
While it takes a little patience to sort through posts by the clueless and the obnoxious, the sheer number of users means it's possible for most people to find someone who shares their predilections.
The beauty of participating in a chatroom is that you can interact with multiple people at once.
