A few years ago, a friendly acquaintance came up to me at a fairly lively party and asked me if I remembered attending another event, years before. I told him I did; he said he remembered it too, and also the tank top I wore, because he'd been jerking off to the memory.

There is nothing wrong with a fantasy. The creepy, potentially violating part is letting someone else into it without their prior consent or interest. And the same thing that I found repellent that night seems to be the entire premise of Thank Your Wank, a site in which you thank the person you fantasized to while masturbating, although we suspect they would say it's all a big joke and we lack a sense of humor.

The problem is that not only do wankees, shall we say, not opt in to the system, but that all Facebook profiles appear to be culled for it. A tipster writes that she Googled her name yesterday in preparation for a job application:

"On search listing three was the thankyourwank site! I click on it, and there is my facebook profile on full view (i guess the site links to facebook), indicating that people have wanked to me. What's scary is I have never ever signed up with this site.

This may have to do with privacy settings; when I searched my name, my work-related Like page, but not personal, more-restricted profile, came up. The site doesn't have much to say about itself besides the above video (TV and movie representations of masturbation interspersed with Reddit comments), and this lean FAQ:

Find out how many people WANKED TO YOU
Thank those you wanked to by clicking +1 on their profile
Get INSTANT ALERTS for mutual wanks
Create a list of your favorite wanks (may also be used as a TO-"DO" list)
See the MOST WANKED TO people on earth!

On the plus side, it's anonymous unless you +1 someone who also wanked to you.
