She begins to spend more and more time there, seeking thrills and validation in cyberspace. \”It\’s all about being raunchy and kinky because it is anonymous\” she says.Alan, 56 and a successful lawyer, kept his obsession for pornography in check until his office connected him to the internet. He quickly became obsessed with orgasms online. \”It just wreaked havoc with my working life, \” says Alan. He started living entirely in the secret virtual world and was unable to work effectively.
