They also rated themselves on a set of physiological and psychological symptoms within the past week, and provided information on the number of sexual partners they had both within the previous week and the previous 6 months.
The widespread availability of Internet pornography has made it possible for millions of people to get sexual gratification easily, frequently, and without public attention.
But because we so widely associate attraction to pornography with men, and because Internet pornography in general is a relatively recent phenomenon, there’s been very little scrutiny, either in academic research or the popular media, on women who become addicted to cybersex.
Unlike people who don’t develop an addiction, those hooked on cybersex actually become aroused by sexual cues on the Internet.
If you don’t become turned on by pornographic images on the Internet, you won’t become a cybersex addict.
