SEX FORUM Cybersex is taking off – because cheating online is so easy
CYBERSEX is on the rise after research revealed the Internet has made it easier to cheat.
The shocking figures showed that advances in technology have made it simple to do things like sending racy naked snaps and X-rated cybersex sessions – which has contributed to a rise in unfaithful partners.
The survey was carried out by The Open University and the majority of respondents agreed that the Internet was to blame for infidelity becoming more common.
The anonymous online survey, among 20 to 73-year-olds, also revealed that men and women have different opinions as to what counts as cheating online.
Dr Vossler said: “Our research revealed that men and women do see internet infidelity differently. But it is not just a gender divide – what is experienced as infidelity online can vary from person to person.
“What might be seen as casual chatting by one partner is hurtful and disloyal to the other, for instance.
“With the Internet and social media now being part of everyday life in the Western world, there are growing opportunities for partners to engage in online behaviours and activities that may be considered unfaithful – including cybersex, exchanging sexual self-images, online flirting and dating.”
Sport model Carmen Croft admitted she didn’t see the harm in flirting or exchanging messages with someone else online, even if you are in a committed relationship.
The 36D stunner said she wouldn’t be upset if her lover had been emailing another woman behind her back, but she would draw the line if their messages turned to sex or they swapped nude pics.
The 25-year-old, from Islington, said: “I don’t see the big deal with people chatting to each other online.
“If I was on a night out and someone approached me, I wouldn’t do anything with them if I was in a relationship but I don’t think it would be wrong for me to talk to them or flirt a little bit. So why should it be different online?
“I think the research is right about it being easier to do things like send naked pictures to people, because you can connect with strangers so easily.
“I would never send a sexy photo to someone I met online though.”
