The next version of chat rooms is the 2D visual chat room.
Cybersex is commonly performed in Internet chat rooms (such as IRC, talkers or web chats) and on instant messaging systems.
It can also be performed using webcams, voice chat systems like Skype, or online games and/or virtual worlds like Second Life.
There are a number of popular, commercial webcam websites that allow people to openly masturbate on camera while others watch them.
Using similar sites, couples can also perform on camera for the enjoyment of others.
Some chat rooms contain an element of moderation to deter disruptive or undesirable behaviour.
This may occur through volunteer moderators who monitor conversations and block messages and/or users who do not meet the standards set by the particular chat room.Another means of moderation is by having users undergo a process of identity verification before being allowed access to the chat room.The original version of the chat room was the strictly text-based variety of which the most popular form is Internet Relay Chat (IRC).While it does not involve physical contact, critics claim that the powerful emotions involved can cause marital stress, especially when cybersex culminates in an Internet romance.In several known cases, Internet adultery became the grounds for which a couple divorced.Often these personas develop complex past histories for their characters to make the fantasy/roleplay even more life like, thus the evolution of the term "real cybering".
