Until recently, gay men sought such encounters in public parks, restrooms and bathhouses, while straight men found them in singles bars, strip clubs, swingers clubs and brothels.
Today, Anonomous sex Internet, social media, and the related proliferation of sex-locater smart-phone apps have rapidly, drastically, and permanently altered the anonymous sex landscape. They find freedom in experiencing sex
Anonomous sex encumbrance, without having to maintain any commitment lasting longer than the sex act itself.
This is especially true for those already in committed or marital relationships, men and women seeking quick and easy sex on the down-low. They revel in the fact that there is no need to buy someone a drink, go to dinner and a show, or pretend to write down a phone number.
And because there is no emotional or personal connection, many find it easier and emotionally safer to live out their sexual fantasies with strangers — believing these fantasies are too shameful or too embarrassing to share with an emotionally intimate partner.
Consider Jason, a year-old married, hard-working, self-employed electrician. A few months ago, after getting his first smart-phone, Jason discovered the apps for Ashley Madison and Blendr, setting up accounts on both and getting hooked immediately.
Log on to Blendr, for instance, and the interface instantly displays a grid of pictures of potential sex partners, helpfully arranged from nearest to away. Tapping on a picture displays a brief profile of that user, along with the option to chat, send pictures, or share your own location.
For a sex addict, Blendr is crack cocaine. Before long, Jason found himself spending more time searching for sexual hook-ups than managing his shop. Time formerly spent calling on Anonomous sex clients and making repairs was replaced with stop and Anonomous sex sexual hook-ups that took place wherever his phone apps led him. Needless to say, business suffered. Jason fell behind on his mortgage, credit card payments, and
Anonomous sex bills. Eventually, his wife checked his smart-phone, finding several nude pictures of her husband, dozens of pictures of nude women and text messages setting up more than thirty sexual encounters.
In a fit of anger, she took the children and left. Today she is strongly considering divorce. Sexually addicted clients report that when active in their addiction they somehow feel invulnerable, safe from the possibility of their compartmentalized, sexual secrets being discovered by a spouse, loved one, or boss.
Think former US Congressman Anthony
Anonomous sex sexting anonymous women from the US Congressional gym, seemingly without thinking about how badly that could, and did, turn out for him.
Study after study shows that when sex addicted people are in pursuit of their drug or behavior of choice, they consistently experience this false sense of The emotional and physiological pull of their addiction fosters a false sense of safety and denial. For years now, online hook-up sites like Craigslist have fueled sexually compulsive behavior by providing ample opportunities for meeting, chatting up, and being sexual with strangers. In fact, the company slogan reads: Ashley Madison has successfully monetized infidelity.
Unfortunately for sex addicts, anonymous sexual encounters are part of larger pattern of sexual acting out that eventually becomes their life priority, pushing aside partners, family, work, school and self-care. These individuals end up using sex to fulfill emotional needs and reduce emotional stress rather than relying on friends, family, and spouses as emotional support.
They find themselves searching for anonymous encounters to the exclusion of all Anonomous sex, and living double lives to hide their sexual activity.
Without help, they destroy their relationships, ruin their credibility and repeatedly place themselves in physical danger.
So Anonomous sex those engaging in anonymous sex may tout the freedom it brings, for some this freedom can lead to emotional imprisonment, shame, isolation, and loss. In truth, we have yet to see the full result of how these new freedoms and sexual access will impact our culture — but the initial results are not promising.
