 Pornography in CyberSpace
Annette's main point in her paper was that the interactive nature of these games makes them a particularly insidious form of pornography.
If, as some theorists have suggested, such interactions are a form of role-playing from which men learn (in some small way, at least) how to behave in a sexual interaction with a woman, then these games may be training men in how to control interactions with real women.
