"AsiaOne.com recently ran a series of articles on sex addiction that sparked massive interest. Only one of the articles was about a man.

Internet sex.....can act as a catalyst, affecting established defences and ego and superego functioning......Internet sex has the potential to fuel manic defences, invites narcissistic and part-object relating, provides a vehicle for the expression and disowning of sadistic impulses and can potentially undermine superego functioning.
