The Internet appears to have become an ever-increasing part in many areas of people’s day-to- day lives. One area that deserves further examination surrounds sexual behavior and excessive Internet usage. It has been alleged by some academics that social pathologies are beginning to surface in cyberspace and have been referred to as “technological addictions.” Such research may have implications and insights into sexuality and sexual behavior. Therefore, this article examines the concept of “Internet addiction” in relation to excessive sexual behavior and Internet pornography, as well as examining newer areas of Internet sexuality such as “online relationships” and sexually-related Internet crime (e.g., “cyberstalking”).
