Book description

Computers have changed not just the way we work but the way we love. Falling in and out of love, flirting, cheating, even having sex online have all become part of the modern way of living and loving. Yet we know very little about these new types of relationship. How is an online affair where the two people involved may never see or meet each other different from an affair in the real world? Is online sex still cheating on your partner? Why do people tell complete strangers their most intimate secrets? What are the rules of engagement? Will online affairs change the monogamous nature of romantic relationships? These are just some of the questions Professor Aaron Ben Ze'ev, distinguished writer and academic, addresses in this book, a full-length study of love online. Accessible, shocking, entertaining, enlightening, this book will change the way you look at cyberspace and love forever.


‘This clearly written and dryly witty book, though avowedly a work of scholarship, is also packed with anecdotes and smart quotes, and displays an evident empathy for its keyboard-clattering subjects.’

‘Love Online manages to present a fine combination of engaging reading, comprehensive research and stimulating philosophical debate.’

Source: Jerusalem Post

‘How better to enhance the higher pleasures of philosophy than with the gratifications of voyeurism? Just such an occasion for compound joys is afforded by Aaron Ben-Ze'ev's charming investigation into internet affairs and their implications for the future of love, sex and marriage.’
