Is Cybersex Cheating?

<< < (2/6) > >>

Thanks for bringing me back to reality, Zaine. 8)

i'm afraid i agree with both JeffK about loss of intimacy, and Zaine about holodeck sex.  that's a scary thought.

Cybersex is just another form of pornography, and pornography is a disease that destroys families. It's just as addicting, if not more so, than actual substance abuse.

I guess you could say that, Deozaan, about many things. I've seen sports do the same thing to families. But it doesn't have to go down that way. Subscribing to a photo website like Perfect 10 and downloading all their content isn't going to destroy a family unless the person is compulsive to start with. The great advantage to cybersex — whatever it is and however it is defined — is its inherent safety. If I engage in its virtual aspect only, I'm not going to get or give any disease, nor am I going to hurt another person. Whether and how it affects a couple's sex life depends on, well, their sex life to start with. Or so it seems.

Exactly, if the person participating in Cybersex turns to that more so than to the real thing with his partner, then yes, cybersex can be very harmful. But if its controlled and not let to get in the way of the love life with the partner, then, like pornography, it can be more of a hobby (for lack of a better word). But, like any hobby, if left to become an obsession, it can have some major drawbacks.
