StarWeb and Tantric Sex

For no adequately explored reason I re-read Alien Embassy, the Ian Watson 'tantric sex with imaginary aliens' novel. I had forgotten or not noticed that early one there is a very fine Pournelle, as I like to call blatant foreshadowing of things by having dialogue on the lines of
character A, muttering under breath: 'I wasn't expecting them to start trying to kill me so soon?'
character B: 'What was that?'
character A: 'Oh nothing, just muttering to myself under my breath'.
(which is more or less exactly what happens in a random Pournelle novel I read).
At the back it has an advert for Starweb, the heavily advertised PBM game. At some point decades ago I bought the rules. Somewhat to my surprise, it is still going http://www.flyingbuffalo.com/starweb.htm
