Cybersex can occur either within the context of existing or intimate relationships, e.g.
among lovers who are geographically separated, or among individuals who have no prior knowledge of one another and meet in virtual spaces or cyberspaces and may even remain anonymous to one another.
Mental side effects include behavioral changes, violence, anxiety, agitation, irrational fears, depression and hallucinations.
Cocaine use also causes legal problems, accidental injuries and serious financial, occupational and familial problems.
Cybersex is commonly performed in Internet chat rooms (such as IRC, talkers or web chats) and on instant messaging systems.
It can also be performed using webcams, voice chat systems like Skype, or online games and/or virtual worlds like Second Life.
