Do you know what cybersex activities include?

Cybersex activities are not only viewing or downloading pornography along with masturbation, but also reading and writing sexually explicit letters and stories, e-mailing to set up personal meetings with someone, placing ads to meet sexual partners, visiting sexually oriented chat rooms, and engaging in interactive online affairs which include real-time viewing of each other using electronic cameras hooked up to the computer.

According to Dr. Mark Schwartz’s book “Sex on the Net is like heroin,” “Cybersex grabs people and takes over their lives, and treatments are very difficult because the people affected don’t want to give it up.”

Psychotherapy Networker Magazine March/April issue

“Addicted to Sex” is a case study I had published last month in the Psychotherapy Networker Magazine.  Although this magazine directs its writings to professionals, lay persons can benefit by the rich and varied information in it.

“Addicted to sex” incorporates the traditional cognitive/behavioral model of sex addiction treatment with attachment theory, privileging the therapeutic relationship and incorporating the use of the body.

Cybersex addiction help

Cybersex can be as much of a threat to relationships as other infidelities are.  It’s important to set boundaries in your relationship and have explicit conversations about what is okay and what isn’t.

Talk about your life together. It’s crucial to talk to one another while in relationship and decide what is okay for you as a couple.  Discuss what infidelity means to you both and set those boundaries.  Talk to one another about whether it is okay for your partner to look at online pornography.  Do you want to be present when he/she does that or does it matter to you? How do you feel about your partner contacting other people via the web for cybersex? Make sure that you and your partner keep current about what does and doesn’t work for you.

Does cybersex take up a lot of time? One of the earmarks of any of addiction is a loss of time.  How much time do you spend on the Internet. Does it take time away from your erotic life with your partner?  Does it diminish your sexual desire for your partner?  If you are devoting more time to online sexual activities than your partner, then you are creating a breach to intimacy in your relationship and can also be  a sign of a cybersex addiction.

Secret, shaming, or abusive. If you become secretive about your on-line behavior then that is a sure sign that you have a problem. It doesn’t matter whether you are hiding what you are doing, how much time you are spending, the sites you are visiting, or the people you are talking to. If a behavior is secretive, shaming, or abusive to yourself or others – you have a problem.

Cybersex addiction can be treated.  For more information on how to get help with your problem, go to www.thecenterforhealthysex.com for resources and treatment options. Any form of sex addiction can be as devastating as drug/alcohol addictions. Get help now! Sex Addiction Los Angeles

Porn Apps – What do you think about that?!

Now you can download porn  directly to your iPhone. Anyone can watch porn any where, any place, and any time and you (or your kids) can be subjected to watching it if you happen to be trapped next to a viewer – like on an airplane.  According to a recent article, one in five iPhone users in the UK have used their devices to download porn.
