Abstract
Problematic involvement in cybersex is generally considered to be an excessive and uncontrolled use of online
sexual activities associatedwith tangible negative outcomes and functional impairment. To date, there is no consensus
in the literature regarding the conceptualization and labeling of this disorder, or of its diagnosis and assessment
(e.g., screening questionnaires and diagnostic criteria). Through a systematic examination of the
literature, we emphasize that problematic cybersex is an umbrella construct that regroups various types of distinct
dysfunctional online behaviors. Despite a considerable increase in studies on problematic cybersex, no
clear diagnostic guidelines exist for clinicians and researchers.Moreover, the factors involved in the development
and maintenance of the disorder remain poorly examined, and the evidence regarding valid assessment and
treatment are lacking.
