After serious consideration, and months of very little activity, The Erogenous Zone (TEZ) has been archived. You will still need 200 posts to access it, however.

In its place, two new forums have been created:

  • The first is a public "Health & Beauty" forum, which is open for all discussions about health issues, about fashion, about beauty, and even for those in health professions to discuss their lives working among the hospitalized, ill, and sick. Threads on sex, relationships or even your latest STD can be freely discussed here, as a continuation of TEZ's purpose.

  • The second new forum, "The Champagne Room", is only open to those users who have over 1000 posts. It is not public, and no user below 1000 posts can view or read it. Any topic which you don't want known to the general public can be discussed here. This isn't intended to be an "Inside Discussions 2.0", but is meant instead to relieve that concern among some users who don't really want someone offline finding INTL and learning that they had a beef with them, or called them a bitch when they broke up. Much like in TEZ, if you have a private sex related issue you want shared only with other INTLers, it can be mentioned here. Much, as with TEZ, anything mentioned in this forum stays in this forum.

I know it seems strange to have two new forums replace an inactive one, but it was thought that the reason why TEZ was inactive was because it was limiting in its scope. Some users have desired to make threads about their health, fashion, and beauty, which tentatively would seem to belong in TEZ, but didn't really fit with its purpose. It's hoped that the "Health & Beauty" forum will be better suited for this. On other occasions, users have been cautious about posting private details of their lives on INTL, because most of its forums are publicly viewable. They want to share things with other regular INTLers, but don't feel safe in their privacy by doing so. After events, the latest being with Vissario's roommates discovering INTL (as fun as that was for us, not for him), it's hoped that "The Champagne Room" will make users feel more safe to have private discussions they wouldn't have otherwise in most INTL forums.

Even if it fails, it's a worthwhile experiment in trying. TEZ is only archived, and it can always be returned to its former glory at a moment's notice.

We would also like to welcome Zippo back to being a mod. Cheers!

EDIT: "Health & Beauty" is just a temporary name. If someone has a suggestion for it, please post it!

So does that mean the active TEZ threads continue in HnB, because I think most of us with a Y chromosome got the short end of the stick with that.

We've kept most active TEZ threads (which amounted to maybe 8?) in the new Champagne Room. We didn't want to move them to the HnB, because HnB is a public forum, and the threads in TEZ were made in a private one. The same discussions as in TEZ are permittable in HnB, as long as you're okay with them being public.
