Cybex - the serious side

You have to thank AOL chat rooms for the first cyber-rape as noted in The Hot Rod Bodies of Cybersex - Sue-Ellen Case where a reader receives graphic sexual writing or content without first consenting to the be the recipient.

In AN EXPLORATORY STUDY ABOUT THE IMPACTS THAT CYBERSEX (THE USE OF THE INTERNET FOR SEXUAL PURPOSES) IS HAVING ON FAMILIES AND THE PRACTICES OF MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPISTS - Peter David Goldberg (2004) the then rapid rise of cybering practices was noted along with the recognition that this new form of sexual entertainment was presenting many problems for therapists that they were not prepared to deal with.

The interpretation of cybering as either a healthy practice of little consequence or one of dire circumstances depends completely on perspective and one's own interpretation of the activity as a sexual affair, akin to viewing pornography, acting in a pronographic manner, consensual, or attacking.

Personally, I'm still stuck in the 80's, and prefer phone sex over cybering. Somehow, the written word doesn't convey all that the voice can.

PS: Fetch the eye bleach NOW Y1! That first pic, OMG!
