Internet Sex: Is It Adultery?

There’s a new craze sweeping across the world: internet sex. It began shortly after the internet became available for home use and has grown in epidemic proportions.

Internet sex encompasses a wide range of activities that people participate in while they’re online. Some view pornography and masturbate; others meet people online who are interesting in meeting in person to engage in sexual activity and nothing else. Still others meet in chat rooms to engage in cyber sex.

Both men and women stay up until the wee hours of the morning to engage in sexual acts while their spouse sleeps in a room down the hall, unaware that their spouse is just up the hall committing adultery. The cheaters feel that looking at pornography and masturbating is okay. For some reason they can’t comprehend that cheating within a fantasy is, in reality, still cheating.

Infidelity is not uncommon in today’s world. 60% of people surveyed admit to being unfaithful. “Men” you say. Think again. The poll was restricted to married women. Myth tells us that only men are unfaithful. Statistics tell a much different story. In society today, women are unfaithful more often than men. They use terms such as boredom, loneliness or stagnant love life to excuse their actions. Be it in person or online, sex is sex and participating in sexual activity of any kind with someone other than your spouse is adultery.

Cyber sex is not harmless sex. Cheating online is not just having a bit of fun. Both are cheating and being unfaithful will hurt a spouse whether it is with a faceless person online, a co-worker, or a best friend. It will cause irreparable damage to your marriage and looking at the situation realistically, probably end it completely. Cheating has never been easier than it is today, when you can go online, remain anonymous and sign in to participate in a form of cyber sex of your choice. But… when the person is caught, and they will be, the consequences may be more than they bargained for. It probably will be an end to life as they know it, loosing their spouse, children and bringing embarrassment from colleagues and friends. Can a faceless person on the other side of the world cause a marriage to end? The answer is a very definite, “Yes!”

If you suspect your spouse of cheating online, it is easy enough to catch them. Check your computer’s history and if you find nothing there, ask your local computer retailer for a program that is compatible to your computer. If it is too embarrassing to admit to a stranger that you suspect your spouse of cheating online, check out cheating software on the internet. There is a wide variety of programs to choose from that range in price from reasonable to very expensive. Whatever you do, make sure you have proof that you can show your spouse when they deny that they are cheating online. Stop online adultery dead in its tracks today. By Mary M Alward.
