If there is no physical contact or actual sex, is it still an affair?
“It’s not just that you’re communicating with someone online but that there is a sexual or emotional nature,” says Katherine Hertlein, Ph D, an associate professor at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas who studies online affairs.
This is , a new biweekly podcast hosted by four conservative Christian sex bloggers — all of whom have been married to men for more than two decades, all of whom have grown children — dedicated to exploring “the naked truth about godly sexuality.” Grounded in the belief that a strong Christian marriage includes a mutually satisfying sex life, — whose hosts worship at a mix of Evangelical or Methodist churches — covers topics from sex toys and mismatched libidos to erotica and personal grooming.
But more than just talking dirty, the hosts offer something that feels quietly radical, given conservative Christianity’s long, sexist history of teaching women to obey and serve their husbands: a kind of empowerment.
“I fully admit that the church has not done a great job with sexuality,” host J. “And certainly, I was raised in a culture where there was ‘don’t have sex before marriage,’ but there wasn’t a lot of explanation of what God wanted you to do instead.” Parker, who also maintains a Christian sexual-advice blog at Hot, Holy, and Humorous, says her role as a Christian sexpert grew out of having one-on-one chats with other wives in her hometown of Friendswood, Texas.
The daughter of a preacher, she always felt comfortable talking about sex and, after a while, grew to believe God was “nudging her” to speak to a bigger audience.
Question: My girlfriend just found out that I visit sex chat rooms online. I told her it wasn't anything serious, but she says it's cheating.
Is online sex considered cheating the same way realworld sex is?
But we are here to address the questions of why this is the case, what evidence there is to support these studies and these trends, and to set out what makes Internet chat rooms different from other venues.The podcast encourages women to speak up for their sexual needs and desires, educate themselves on their anatomy, and explore what brings them pleasure.According to the hosts, it has been downloaded 30,000 times.If you’re going to sext with someone at least have some sort of conversation first.If not then you might as well just text random numbers and hope someone is impressed: 2. According to the dozens of girls I’ve spoken to about this, it’s crazy how eager guys are to send a picture of their penis to just about anyone who will look.
