Dr. Nericcio,

I came across this article posted on askmen.com about a new online program that virtually promotes cyber-sex to a new dimension. It's called MMO (massively multiplayer online) and the term is usually grouped with other letters to define the specific sex game being played (i.e. MMOEG massively multiplayer online erotic games). I've heard of this type of gaming before in regards to World of Warcraft, but apparently, MMOEG allows players to use computerized avatars to perform sexual activities with other players online. You can even buy toys that sync with the program to use on yourself. I did some more research through other sources online, and the game has also become available on PS3 and Xbox Live. To be completely honest, I find this program to be quite strange, but it does give a great example of how humans are turning to technology to fulfill their biological sexual needs. The author of this article even suggests that it could serve as a safe alternative to sex.

Here's the article: MMO article

and here's the actual website: MMOEG.NET
