Sex addicts used to be mostly male, and they often came from a background that included some form of sexual abuse.
Men tend to spend more time viewing pornography, and women tend to prefer more interactive and relationship oriented cyber sex, but beyond that, there is little understanding of who is most at risk for a cybersex addiction.We do know that the numbers affected are rising - sexual addiction therapists are reporting a dramatic increase in the numbers of people seeking treatment.Internet sex addicts will spend increasing time online engaged in sexual activity.And when I first logged into the site of Habbo Hotel, that is pretty much what I got.I created my cartoon child-like avatar (my online persona) as a little girl with shorts and T-shirt and a flower in her hair, and she wandered across brightly-coloured rooms with teddy bears, flashing neon lights, pink ponies and fluttering butterflies.
