People who seek sex on the net often have real encounters.These individuals may be at greater risk for sexually transmitted diseases.In those cases, there is absolutely no danger of STDs.
Cybersex addiction may not fulfill physiologic definitions of addictions.
At 31 years old I hold a full-time job, have a circle of friends that I hang out with, I'm happy and I play music as well as sports as regular hobbies.
And I probably have cybersex a few times a week, for maybe an hour or hour and a half.
There are a lot of problems in todays society including this but I do think it's a healthy alternative to shoring around your local bar.
As a recovering sex addict, I can attest to the sad reality that cybersex is not just "good dirty fun." It is highly addictive, grossly underestimated, and progressively fatal.
