Cyber sex dating
different, does my spouse's involvement with cybersex give me grounds for divorce?
I recently discovered that he's been involved in an ongoing "relationship" via the Internet.
It’s possible that the “reality” of “virtual sex” is largely in the eye of the beholder.
Some participants may approach it as a genuine interpersonal encounter with meaningful relational overtones.
Even if you had caught your husband in bed with another woman, we wouldn’t necessarily recommend that you divorce him.
Much depends on the degree to which he regrets his actions.
You’re correct to point out that Jesus equates lust in the heart with the act of adultery.
What’s more, He follows this up, just five verses later, by making allowances for divorce where or extra-marital sex has invaded a marriage relationship.
It’s not easy to categorize these perceptions or sort out their various psychological implications.
This case spells out the design paradigm of studying individuals in one of the most stigmatized and sensitive groups in modern society—individuals who sell and buy sex in cyberspace in the form of compensated dating.
The case elaborates the research processes from collecting data through cyber-ethnography to off-line participant observations, and in-depth interviews.
By using a “virtual reality suit,” for example, they can stop just short of the physical act itself. And the word “adultery” naturally comes to mind when one of the parties involved in such an illicit and sexually oriented “relationship” happens to be a married man.
That’s just reason for suggesting that “cybersex” may be a more serious problem than mere lustful fantasy.
It’s true that many “virtual” sexual encounters are kept strictly anonymous. Sometimes participants, egged on by the intensity of their feelings, take the next step by exchanging personal information.
