cybersex

An erotic communication between two people online via text, audio or video chat. The earliest cybersex was text-based in chat rooms, and role playing was common since nobody saw the other party; for example, a 50-year-old man could pretend to be an 18-year-old woman. However, with the advent of Skype and other video calling applications, cybersex has become more visual, and hiding one's identity is not an option. Sending explicit nude pictures of oneself is also cybersex (see sexting).

Cybersex in Games
Cybersex can be a part of multiplayer, online games. Using an avatar, people communicate with each other erotically, and there are games that specialize in cybersex role playing. See teledildonics and parental control software.

Desistir del tan alabado proyecto humanista, que insiste en comprender a los seres humanos como la medida de todas las cosas, epicentro del cosmos, y por lo tanto los unicos seres dignos de erigirse como sujetos, permite cuestionar conceptos como "sujeto", "identidad", "humano", "no humano", "artificial", "natural", "vivo" y "no vivo" a la manera como lo hacen Donna Haraway (1995) en Ciencia, Cybors y mujeres.
De alli que, --actualizando las ideas de Donna Haraway en su texto Cybors at Large de 1991-- podriamos argumentar que a principios del siglo XXI nuestras sociedades se manejan de nuevo en medio de un tiempo mitico, en el que todos nos conformamos como quimeras, hibridos, teorizados, digitalizados por computadoras, es decir, somos posthumanos.
