Who Engages in Risky Online Sexual Activity?
Midwestern Psychological Association
Internet addiction predicts risky sexual behavior; however, pornography and sex site usage are sequential mediators in this relationship. Progressing from passive (pornography viewing) to active (sex site usage) Internet sexual behavior, relates to higher rates of risky offline sexual activities (i.e., sexting nude pictures and meeting for offline sex).
