Hey Dad, you left your 1986 computer porn on this old Mac

It was hidden in an AOL folder, because even in the ’80s, no child with the sense of a Cabbage Patch Kid was going to go digging around in that.

On Wednesday, Reddit user wowbobwow posted a photo-filled tale of his acquisition of a Macintosh SE off of Craigslist. The story starts off as something that might only be of interest to a devoted old-computer collector, and then takes a bizarre turn. The program tucked into that AOL folder was MacPlaymate, a 1986 program labeled as “interactive erotica for the Mac.”

If you’re old enough to remember the Leisure Suit Larry games of the 1980s, you might be envisioning a humor-filled romp, with cartoony characters and goofy scenarios that contained less sex than your average “Game of Thrones” episode does today.

Nope, nope, nope. MacPlaymate just put it all out there, with a black and white (blue and white?) illustration of a naked Bettie Page-looking woman (dubbed “Maxie”) and a variety of adult toys that can be manipulated, plus a very simple idea of what a 1980s artist thought might be sexy lingerie.

The new owner actually was given the computer for free, when the would-be seller thought it no longer worked, which may explain why that person didn’t delete the software program.

“Now I’m blushing in black and white,” wrote wowbobwow, whose user name became even more relevant as the game progressed.

MacPlaymate wasn’t the only surprise left on the computer. There was also a painstakingly drawn floor plan of a home done in MacPaint, which led to this top comment on the Reddit thread.

Wrote Reddit user MC2037, “I really hope that when this makes it to the front page someone recognizes the floor plan of the house and realizes that this is their dad’s old computer.”
