Summary
This startling documentary reveals how the internet contributes to alienation, especially in the area of human sexuality. In North America alone, more than 8 million people pursue sex online at least 11 hours a week. The internet has actually removed touch and human contact from sex. This film profiles people who find virtual encounters more liberating and exciting than encounters with "real" people. Nicole, a divorced 35-year old, lost her job and seeks entertainment in an adult chat room. She begins to spend more and more time there, seeking thrills and validation in cyberspace. "It s all about being raunchy and kinky because it is anonymous" she says. Alan, 56 and a successful lawyer, kept his obsession for pornography in check until his office connected him to the internet. He quickly became obsessed with orgasms online. "It just wreaked havoc with my working life, " says Alan. He started living entirely in the secret virtual world and was unable to work effectively. Eventually he sought help from an addiction clinic. The film introduces Dr Sylvain Bones who is publishing a major study on the online sexual behavior of university students. Several therapists are heard from, including Richard Davis, one of the first to research the pathological internet use. There is a strong lobby among psychologists to give cybersex addiction recognition in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of mental disorders. This is a unique resource for classes in psychology, human sexuality and sociology
