You could always move somewhere that doesn't get covered in snow, ice, rain, mud, etc. every year. This would probably involve a southerly location. I live in the mountains in So. Cal. and I haven't had a power outage lasting more than a couple of hours in the past 6 years.

What a dumb title. The question was not "do you prefer the internet EXCUSIVELY over real sex". I doubt many people would completely give up sex for the internet.
There is a bit of hypocrisy in this story. I've read many comments that say "I can do whatever I want online but you can't do anything to me". Would you hop into a car with a stranger? Would you give out personal information to someone you just met at a bar (no matter how charming the person is)?
The beauty of the internet is it's freedom but like in nature, the wild jungle is host to predators and prey. You can't have a "safe" internet and a "free" internet. You need to be careful in the virtual world too.
