I agree with Darren that cybersex is just another way to have a pleasant sexual experience if you are single. Lamm is really trying to say is that sometimes the solution to loneliness can become a real problem.
It appears that men and women are using the Internet equally for "cybering".
People engaging in cybersex have a tendency to underestimate the importance and effect on their lives.
At 31 years old I hold a full-time job, have a circle of friends that I hang out with, I'm happy and I play music as well as sports as regular hobbies.
And I probably have cybersex a few times a week, for maybe an hour or hour and a half.
