We must be honest, a lot of it is just down right creepy. My question is, why does sex feature so heavily in RP servers? I have wondered why Goldshire became the place to go? Cybering is for the teens that think making your own dream sexy character and pair it with someone elses character, and fap to the qonsuquences is better then real sex. I don't care why Goldshire became the place to go, what I care about, is the weird interest people have in the ERP'ers. I never learn to understand fellow, human beings :(It's basicly interactive sexual literature with your own character and ideas being in the plot in case of ERP (since many people insist on the difference being stated) and merely something nice to look at at times of sexual relief in case of cybering. Thank you for everyone's responses so far, I really appreciate it. I guess my problem with it, if you can call it that, is that there's nothing "erotic" about what goes on AT ALL.
Both know they have something in common, both know where they stand, together, and in this almost perfect atmosphere reality becomes redundant.
"There is actually a difference between ERP and Cybering/Goldshire: The former is part of a character's plot for people who want to do that rather than fade to black. The latter is just cyber s(beep) for the sake of 'getting off'. It's not hard to avoid, and if you catch it, you can always report or ignore them if need be. Its biology I healty man/woman NEED to have lust other way there will be no humans around , Why is it soo comont in media , internet , becouse ppl have LUST if there is a demand there will be supply . its hard to judge it is just like with alkohol it is unhelthy but if you know what are you doing its OK to drink right ?

The latter is just cyber s(beep) for the sake of 'getting off'. Some interesting replies here and it's nice to see it hasn't turned into an argument! The strange thing though, was that 99% of the players were stood still/sat down, with nobody chatting publicly.
