Cybersex – better than real sex?


Our culture has a simple definition of sex. Although we’re having all kinds of sex — oral sex, anal sex, masturbation — only penis in vagina sex is often considered to be “real” sex.

However, just as we’ve accepted technology in to a range of other parts of our life, it’s time to accept that doing it digitally is real sex.

As with “regular” sex, there are many ways to enjoy cybersex. There’s sexting, talking dirty, sending sexy pictures, etc. We are exposing our bodies (and our minds, in the case of messaging) to each other with the goal of getting off. Just because we can’t touch yet (and there are many of companies furiously working to fix that) doesn’t change the fact that we’re still able to enjoy our sexual pleasures.

Cybersex provides various advantages:

  • It allows real-life partners who are physically separated to continue to be sexually intimate.
  • It allows for sexual exploration. For example, it can enable participants to act out fantasies which they would not act out (or perhaps would not even be realistically possible) in real life through roleplaying due to physical or social limitations
  • It takes less effort and fewer resources on the Internet than in real life to connect to a person like oneself or with whom a more meaningful relationship is possible
