Internet & Computer Addiction:
Cyber Sex & Virtual Pornography
Compulsive and Self Defeating Technological Habits
It started off innocently enough, as a way to pass the time or as a much needed relief from work or personal pressures. But then, at some point, you found yourself at the computer all the time. You realize that your virtual world has eclipsed your real world. Your family is complaining or you realize you simply want to slow down or stop, but … you can’t.
Many people are facing the same issues around behaviors that are known as “clean addictions.” There are no drugs involved, but the addictive nature of the internet often mimics the addictive nature of chemical substances.

Virtual Sexual Encounters
Wikipedia describes cybersex as a virtual sexual encounter in which two or more persons connected remotely via computer network to send each other sexually explicit messages describing a sexual experience in order to stimulate their own erotic feelings and fantasies.
Cybersex is typically viewed as an act that carries no real emotional bond or high-risk repercussions. Online sex enthusiasts most commonly engage in sexually-charged encounters by way of chat rooms or instant messaging systems. The increasing popularity of webcams has made it possible for people to connect “remotely” to engage in fantasy that involves a real-time visual sexual exchange.
A host of problems have emerged from the availability of internet porn and the opportunity to engage in cyber-sexual relationships. Couples are torn apart by the “virtual infidelity” associated with such erotic interchange. Many have complained that they have come to suffer “sex addiction” because of the consequences associated with this type of behavior.
