It’s possibly the first memoir of its kind that examines close up the dangers of a new but rapidly growing phenomenon: an addiction to cyber-sex. On the Tube, the train, in the café, the park; anyone staring intently into an open laptop, or else assiduously thumbing at an i Phone, is quite possibly at it the way I so incessantly was,” she writes. “When you’re online you can take on another persona, so perhaps in life, if you’re more quiet and reserved, it allows you to be another person.” And the persona this naturally quiet and reserved woman took on was of a needy, sexual predator with names like Juicy and Lucy.Dent says she wrote it after posting a shorter version of what happened on a relationship forum after her marriage broke down and because her therapist suggested writing might help her recovery. It began after Dent was made redundant and the work on the new house she and her husband had recently bought had been finished.He told the police: "I can't believe I did this." Stonebridge, a father of four, of Weslyen Way, Sandy pleaded guilty to attempting to meet a child following grooming, and attempting to incite a child to engage in sexual activity. Defending, James Knight said Stonebridge was being supported by his wife and had been in a "terrible spiral of anxiety."

“If people don’t talk about problems or manage to deal with them, somehow or another they try to escape and I was putting a plaster over the problems but not dealing with them.” Sometimes they would go to the races — his passion, not hers — and on one occasion she met a group of married women who called themselves the racing widows.
She became so caught up in her virtual world that she sometimes carried on texting them in the evenings, while her husband sat opposite her at dinner, pouring her a glass of wine, oblivious to what she was doing.
The story of how, five years ago, this apparently happily married woman, approaching her 40th birthday, went from browsing erotic literature forums to having online sex with men looking for “naughty fun”, of how the virtual tipped into reality when she had a proper affair, of how her husband found out, left her and came back, is the subject of a compelling new memoir, Turned On, published next week. The author, who wishes to remain anonymous, agreed to this interview on the understanding that it would be done on the telephone with her publicist at her side.
