A married man views internet pornography for hours at home, then begins surfing pornography sites at the office and risks destroying his career.
A married woman spends hours a day talking in Internet chat rooms and having cybersex, and eventually starts arranging to meet online strangers for casual sex in the real world.
A married couple view pornographic movies together as part of their loving relationship, but the husband starts spending more time watching and less time with his wife, who feels left behind and rejected.
