Sex chat forum with strangers
It wouldn’t have been as bad if he was just accessing porn, as I know men do this, but the fact that he was talking to other people has really disgusted me.
I feel a bit betrayed and worry about whether I can trust him.
I still feel really unhappy about what he has done.
When I challenged him, he was embarrassed and then defensive saying it was just harmless flirting and that he had not gone over any line.
Also, the youths who visit chatrooms may be more at risk than other youths.
There is some evidence that adolescents who visit chatrooms are more likely to have problems with their parents, to suffer from sadness, loneliness, or depression, to have histories of sexual abuse, and to engage in risky behavior than those who do not go to chatrooms. Directed video chat services such as Skype or Google Hangouts are valuable ways of communicating remotely with people we already know.
Like many problems, it can start innocently at first, with a person visiting sexually titillating sites perhaps out of boredom or a seeking escapism but then it can escalate to other behaviours, such as directly communicating with other people online and over time can become addictive and harmful.
Moving forward In the aftermath of discovering your husband’s online world, it is perfectly understandable that you might feel disgusted and betrayed and to worry as to how much you can trust your husband.
