Cybersex is the act of role-playing sexual acts or exchanging explicit sexual messages with people through chat room via the internet.
You might regret sending something when drunk that you would never have sent sober.
And once you hit send, you no longer have control over what happens next.
However there are still risks involved and, as with any type of sexual activity, it is never ok for someone to coerce (pressure) you into anything sexual you don't want.
For much of the time it may seem no big deal, and many people enjoy cyber sex without any problems.
"All you're doing is criminalizing speech," said attorney Ann Taliaferro. Even if a suspect outright confesses to a crime, the state must show independent evidence that they either committed the crime or intended to commit a crime.
Taliaferro said in her client's case, he was convicted based solely on an Internet chat he claims was purely sexual fantasy.
For internet solicitation or online solicitation of a minor, the method of contact must involve some type of online or electronic means.
When this charge first evolved, most states restricted the application to conversations through the Internet, like those in chat rooms.
But it's worth thinking about what the risks might be.
