Internet and sex – the jolly old brothers who walk hand in hand.
Internet and sex have almost become a mandatory part of a happy life but have you ever given it a thought that a mixture of both could actually end up in something dark.
The internet is like Uncle Scrooge’s hidden treasure of unlimited information that we are inclined to using and sex-related content adds up to the menu as well.
You can try out all the creative experiments you want and it comes with no side effects as well.
Quite a few websites offer interactive sex platforms where you can paint it with your desires like it was some empty canvas. Quite a few lads with high narcissism and low ego out there engage in such online ecstatic activities. When they are asked about it, they say it’s just for ‘fun,’ and yet many behave like they’re married to the internet.
Cybersex is nothing but an act, in which you are having sex without physical contact, turns to cheating through the internet, it becomes the most common and most difficult type of internet addiction. It’s all fun and games until you can’t control it, and your self-destruction starts harming not only you but also those close to you.
Cybersex addiction and how it affects you
Before we get started, it is extremely important to know what is cybersex addiction exactly and what are its contemporary disorder signs and how can it be treated. The sooner you find out, the sooner you can treat it.
Mastu*bation while watching adult movies online
Some have named this as a relaxation session while others tend to watch adult movies while satisfying their voyeurism fantasies. In this case, we don’t consider this as an addiction, it is rather a pleasure session.
Watching adult movies leads to excessive mastur*ation
If this happens then you need to be concerned. When you mastu*bate too much then it could cause negative consequences in your early sexual life because normal, regular sex is nothing compared to what you see in the movies.
Mastu*bating once a day is all good and normal but in case you end up mastur*ating more than thrice a day than darling you need to slow down. Believe it or not but this is regarded as a sexual addiction disorder and worst of all – you won’t reach climax while you’re actually in the real action.
Those of who whine about being single and rant about not having a partner are often found indulging in interactive cybersex. The good thing here is that you don’t really have to pick a stranger from the street, the internet does the job for you.
There are websites designed to satisfy all your interactive desires but these satisfying websites could end up making you an addict.
An addict chooses someone who is not a real person
Sadly, an anxious person is scared of potential bad situations that might happen in a real relationship such as rejection or bad sex or maybe their own failure to satisfy their partners. So taking it as a step to escape reality, they indulge in sexual interactions over the internet.
The main causes of the disorder
Every disorder begins with a trial which ends up as an addiction, and every trial comes in with a force that might have been a mishap in a relationship, or dissatisfaction with life in general.
A shaken self-image, stress or anger often triggers a desperate wish to recover and find distraction through pleasure. Cybersex in this matter seems like the easiest and safest option available.
Is cybersex cheating?
Differences in a relationship can lead to cheating and most people might not be aware of the fact that indulging in sexual interactions with unknown people on the internet is in fact cheating.
And the worst part is that this virtual interaction further hampers your relationship because your real life partner will never be as good as your cyber buddy.
The real world becomes secondary
In the beginning, it might feel like just another indulgence game. But gradually your online sexual addiction will start controlling you over your life. You’ll find yourself planning your day according to your cyber buddy’s waiting schedule behind the screen.
You’ll start avoiding your friends, family and even your favourite hobbies. Dear friend, it’s high that you realize that you’re in deep trouble.
This modern day disorder has a cure too…
The psychological treatment goes a long way when it comes to curing any sort of mental illness or addictive disorders. Psychotherapy circles who have equalized cybersex addiction with obsessive-compulsive disorders tend to apply a cognitive approach in treating obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours related to sex.
But, psychological treatment can cure this addiction only when the patient admits to his or her sexual behaviour and makes a conscious effort towards changing their unhealthy sexual habits. This includes education and individual and family therapy as well.
