Virtual sex

Virtual sex is sexual activity where two or more people - or one person and a virtual character - gather together via some form of communications equipment to arouse each other by transmitting sexually explicit messages. Virtual sex describes the phenomenon, no matter the communications equipment used. Digital remote stimulation involves the use of directed energy, biochips,and/or cybernetic implants to stimulate a man or woman in the genital area from a distance Camming is virtual sex, over video chat from services that provide it. Cybersex is virtual sex typed over the Internet, including IRC, e-mail, instant messaging, chat rooms, role-playing games, etc. Phone sex is virtual sex spoken over the telephone. Sexting is virtual sex sent via mobile phone network text messaging; the advent of cell phones with built-in digital cameras has undoubtedly added new dimensions to these activities. Modern consumer virtual reality headsets allow users to engage in virtual sex through simulated environments, either with other humans or with virtual characters.

These terms and practices continuously evolve as methods of communication change. Increases in Internet connectivity, bandwidth availability, the proliferation of webcams have had implications for virtual sex enthusiasts. It's common for these activities to include the exchange of pictures or motion video. There are companies which allow paying customers to watch people have live sex or masturbate and at the same time allow themselves to be watched as well. Devices have been introduced and marketed to allow remote-controlled stimulation. An important part of partaking in virtual sex, or sexual acts, would be consent; the ethics of sexting are being established by young people for whom consent figures as a critical concept. Distinctions between positive and negative experiences of sexting are dependent on whether consent was given to make and share the images; as of 2015, it is illegal for any person's under the age of 18 to consent to any form of virtual sex, because images of minors are considered child pornography.
