We’re starting to see, however, that looking for sex online is not without dangers and disappointments.
It’s still possible for the online sex surfer to get caught, get taken advantage of, get addicted or get in trouble with the law. What could be more anonymous than viewing pornography on the Internet?
Even the sex surfer who avoids these pitfalls may fail to find what they are looking for. A number of things actually—including physically walking into a sex store on the seedy side of town.
You can download only those things that turn you on, rather than buy an entire magazine or video.
You can obtain it in the privacy of your home—without having to walk into a seedy bookstore or movie house.
You can explore different aspects of your sexuality without exposing yourself to communicable diseases or public ridicule.
Easy access, anonymity, and affordability have made Internet porn more attractive and seemingly less dangerous than past outlets for sexual experimentation.

We often hear the expression, “surfing the Web.” But a better metaphor may be “walking on the beach” because your footprints follow you wherever you go.
