We gave it an A

In Lisa33 Dan Allan logs us on to Literoticus.com, a circa-1999 sex chat room where cynical ”Lisa33” meets cybervirgin ”Tag” amid the smut-spewing regulars. Through chat-room exchanges, e-mails, and IMs — many X-rated — ”Lisa33” and ”Tag” move from witty flirtation to revelations about their childhoods and troubled marriages. Along the way, we get to know a host of vivid and hilarious secondary characters (like desperate housewife ”Moonbeam” and pervert ”Liquidjoy”). By the time ”Lisa33” and ”Tag”’s virtual affair threatens to cross into reality, we’ve forgotten it wasn’t ”real” to begin with — and that’s the point.
