I don't know if you'll learn anything, but I know that I learned that for whatever reason, I don't consider two people masturbating in proximity to be sex, but I consider phone sex to be sex. I suppose, I feel that two people having phone sex would actually be having sex if they were in proximity. Whereas with two people: masturbation of oneself in the proximity of another person doesn't neccesarily imply that there's any sort of connection.

And that's the counterargument to what I say above. With phone sex, the masturbation is a substitute for physical contact between them. I mean, people don't have phone sex by being in the same room and using cell phones :-). They do it as a substitute for physical interpersonal sex, while separated. But I could see arguing that just because it *is* a substitute it's not real sex - it's what you do when you can't have sex. So I could argue it either way. Still, when you come down to it: it's interpersonal sexual activity. And if someone in a monogamous relationship has phone sex with someone else, I'd call that cheating. So I think it's sex.
I don't think phone sex is only a substitute for physical contact. I've been in the same house with someone (but in different rooms) and we've had phone sex just because we enjoyed phone sex with each other.
I learned that for whatever reason, I don't consider two people masturbating in proximity to be sex, but I consider phone sex to be sex.
I learned the same thing.
Same here. I was pretty surprised to realize I thought that.
