Cybersex in moderation is a perfectly fulfilling, healthy and a safe lifestyle if you're single and you don't intend on meeting the people you cyber with -- which is the case with very many people who go to cybersex chatrooms.
In fact, cybersex is actually SAFER than if you're single and you're sleeping around promiscuously.
For me, it was the crowing touch to a lifelong sex addiction, ranging from magazines, videos, DVDs, strip clubs, prostitutes, online pornography, and ultimately swingers sites and anonymous sexual encounters.
It appears that men and women are using the Internet equally for "cybering".
People engaging in cybersex have a tendency to underestimate the importance and effect on their lives.
Like anything that enhances your mood cycbersex can become addictive.
That's where the problem really is, not in cybersex itself, but in the addictive process that sometimes occurs as a result.
Cybersex is pretty much the same thing as masturbation (which is normal, and healthy) except that it's slightly more fulfilling.
It's just masturbation with fantasy enhancement from another person (and all men fantasize while they're masturbating anyway).
'If the cyber world is your reality, I strongly urge you to seek out professional guidance. While "cyber" is often being used as an abbreviation for cybersex those two are not the sinonymes.
Cyber is a prefix or a noun that denotes to anything electronic, computer or Internet related, it has nothing to do with sex unless it is a part of the word "cybersex".
Speaking of cybersex, there are lot of people that gets addicted to it. I don't know anything about your situation of course, but one place to start is to take the Great Sex Assessment and see if it gives you some insight into what might be going on with you.
