The Cyberlove Lifestyle

Last week I asked about recent technology that allows a degree of sexual interaction between couples who are separated by many miles. I wanted to know if you thought this would become mainstream or always be considered too "out there" for most people.

A few people found the idea somewhat intriguing and suggested it might catch on with the "anything goes" crowd. The majority of you, however, reacted somewhat negatively to the idea. Some found it simply unappealing and felt it should be relegated to the same status as pornography. Others commented that it fails to provide the intimacy necessary to be considered a satisfying way to interact with your partner. A few of you quoted Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell (and several other artists with great covers) who once sang: Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby!

My favorite comment was by Shan, who may have coined a new term: the cyberlove lifestyle.
