TWO co-workers who have been secretly sleeping together have admitted that the passion is not really surviving Zoom.
Tom Logan and Emma Bradford began cheating on their partners with each other a year ago, but feel that the erotic energy is really fading now the illicit liaison is conducted entirely through a video conferencing app.
Logan said: “It’s not just the sex. Back in February we could be in a meeting about compliance procedures both hugely horny and sending filthy texts under the table.
“But on Zoom Emma’s there, but so is Martin from Risk and Pete from Finance in alarming, unkempt close-up, and I can’t private message in the chat window in case I accidentally send ‘nice tits’ to everyone.
“And it’s impossible to be the last two people to leave virtual work drinks. Every Friday we try but there’s always some f**ker settling in for the long haul from their spare room. I inched closer to Emma but Leanne said I was so close to the camera she could see pores.”
Bradford agreed: “It wasn’t really about the sex. It was the thrill of office flirtation, and you can’t really sustain that when Tom’s wife sticks her head round the door and waves.”
