In some contexts cybersex is enhanced by the use of a webcam to transmit real-time video of the partners.
Channels used to initiate cybersex are not necessarily exclusively devoted to that subject, and participants in any Internet chat may suddenly receive a message with any possible variation of the text "Wanna cyber? " or a request for "C2C"/"C4C" ("cam to cam" and "cam for cam", respectively).
And others just ignore the problems or bash them out by engaging in hot, angry argument sex or sweet, gentle ‘let’s just forget our issues and move on’ sex.
We use sex as a way to put a hot, sexy plaster on our relationship problems, basically.
But while that may feel like it works, a new study suggests it might not – especially for women.
A new study titled Sex Differences in Reconciliation Behavior After Romantic Conflict (sounds hot) suggests that while men like receiving sexual favours (we reckon that means a blow job) or a ‘kind gesture’ after an argument, women don’t find sexual resolutions as helpful.
It can also be performed using webcams, voice chat systems like Skype, or online games and/or virtual worlds like Second Life.
Instead of make-up sex, the women surveyed said they’d rather their partner apologised, had a cry, and spent time with them.
Both genders said they liked gifts after a fight, but men were more likely to suggest gifts as a way to resolve things than women. The survey size was pretty small, however, so it’s difficult to generalise to the wider population.
These addictive love chemicals feel so good that it's difficult for you to even imagine ending contact with your friend.
Your connection feels genuine and even life-sustaining.
