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.

Same here. I was pretty surprised to realize I thought that.
