Author: Canadian Living. Timberland hadn't thought of women as being users let alone abusers of cybersex. And his friend -- a professional who seemed to lead a healthy and ordinary life -- certainly didn't appear to fit the bill of an individual who was struggling with Internet sex addiction.
What is cybersex? Cybersex is the use of graphic, online sexual material.
It runs the gamut from viewing pornographic photographs and downloading and watching pornographic movies online, to having sexually explicit chats that often simulate sex with other Internet users, and using web cams that allow you to request the live performance of sex acts. Marion Goertz, a registered marriage and family therapist in Toronto. Why do women use it? This doesn't mean that they will pursue any of the options presented but they want to be more in control of their sexual experiences.
Studies show that, over time and through repeated use, the use of cybersex provides an emotional or mental escape -- even a "high" -- and this is when the behaviour can become a compulsion.
This is evident when women continue to spend time on sex sites even though they know their job productivity is slipping and their behaviour puts them at risk of being fired, their relationships with family and friends are suffering and they are spending more money or going into debt to download pornography from the Internet.
Is it an addiction? The medical community is still debating whether to formally label the excessive use of cybersex -- in which the individual has no control over their habit -- as a formal "addiction," but many psychologists who treat men and women who are hooked on Internet sex maintain it is a legitimate compulsive disorder.
Those most strongly hooked on Internet sex are likely to spend hours each day masturbating to pornographic images or with an individual contacted through a chat room. Warning s Goertz says the best warning s of any addictive behavior, including cybersex, is a change in regular life patterns seemingly without cause.
Here are some other s that indicate you, your sister or girlfriend may be hooked on cybersex. For example, you are thinking about when you can next visit a pornographic site while making dinner or in a work meeting. Resources: Treatment for cybersex addiction includes individual counselling and support groups for addicts and their partners.
