In our digital world, it can be said that talking about the benefits and harms of the internet has become a matter of the past because the internet has become a reality regardless of all these discussions, and our lives are becoming more and more digital in all its aspects. Many people today work on the internet, build their social relationships on the internet, spend time Their vacuum on the internet, so it is self-evident to say that the internet has become an integral part of life in all its aspects. From this standpoint, it can be said that sex via the internet is a natural consequence of our digital world.
People often, especially in our Arab countries, avoid talking about sex-related issues, so, naturally, we do not find many Arab articles and topics that define sex online and explain its advantages and risks, and offer solutions to avoid the occurrence of unabated consequences, despite the popularity of this practice in Our regions are very large, so we wanted in this article to provide a comprehensive view on this critical topic that we consider to be the most vital issues of the twenty-first century, or as it is called the digital century.
What is sex online?
While there is no clear definition of electronic sex or sex via the internet, it is often known as a sexual experience between two or more people that take place over the internet and may include pictures, videos, live broadcast via camera, or just a text conversation aimed at achieving sexual arousal and achieving orgasm.
Defining sex via the internet is not an easy thing at all, as it is a highly multi-faceted activity. Some researchers classify viewing porn sites as a type of electronic sex, but what we intend to talk about is the sexual relationship that exists between two unknown people or knows each other that takes place through the internet.
Researchers often distinguish between sex via the internet and the emotional relationship over the internet, which usually includes two people who have feelings of love for each other, although they are not physically present in the same place or their inability to practice a sexual relationship in real life. Often these relationships include a form of Online sex.
While there are no accurate statistics in our Arab world about the prevalence of sex on the internet in our region, the reality of sexual repression in large part in our area prompts us to say that this practice is widespread and widespread in our country, which makes talking about it very important.
What are the advantages of online sex
It cannot be said that sex via the internet has its benefits in itself, its features are the same as the features of online communication that enabled people to communicate with each other much more efficiently, the internet has given many people who are unable to have sex in real life a solution that allows them to practice Sexual activity that only needs an internet connection.

What are the dangers of online sex
The ease of sex on the internet, in addition to the ease of access to the internet today, not to mention the possibility of relative anonymity, all this made this practice very popular. Still, according to researchers, these things are also what makes the practitioners of this type of sex vulnerable to addiction, just as The number of Internet addicts and social media addicts increases every day, the number of Internet sex addicts increases every day.
According to the researchers, having sex via the internet is not a serious matter in itself. Still, when this type of sex is practiced by a person who has a form of sexual obsession in the first place, or a person who is not psychologically sound, then the risk of addiction to sex via the internet increases into a kind of mania.
Another dangerous thing is that online sex is more emotional, psychological, and imaginary than physical activity. Sex in real life includes palpable excitement provided by the other party, so researchers found that this practice often increases the feeling of sadness and loneliness in people who resort to this type of sex Especially when practicing with strangers, which may pose a risk of depression.
Another danger is that the internet is an entirely free space that can be accessed by anyone, and many dangerous people have used this space to achieve their own goals. Some exploit the other side, which engages in this kind of sex with him through emotional, sexual, or even physical extortion. Also, people with one of the types of sexual disorders, such as sexual orientation for children, have found the internet a suitable place to achieve this goal, which poses a significant danger indeed.
While confidentiality is one of the advantages of sex on the internet, the reality is that the internet is not a safe place at all, as many experts can exploit loopholes located in many sites of a sexual nature to reveal the true identity of the user, which is a great danger in the event of a criminal By obtaining this information.
What are the proposed solutions?
Experts do not find it logical to say that people need to stay away from sex entirely through the internet. This practice has become an unavoidable reality. Still, much psychological research has begun to find ways to treat people with sex addiction via the internet, where the topic has become a threat. It is valid for the mental health of individuals and the safety of society in general.
Also, many experts provide many tips to make sex online more secure, not using the real name and using digital security programs has become a necessity really, just as not trusting a stranger and not providing him with any personal information of any kind may avoid the person a great danger And enacting laws to prosecute criminals who commit digital crimes such as blackmail or sexual exploitation of children is a necessity today.
In the end, this practice remains a kind of personal freedom that cannot be imposed on restrictions. Still, safety measures must be significantly increased, and awareness-raising campaigns designed to clarify the risks of this practice, especially for adolescents, is very important.
