Abstract

Scholarship in cyberculture studies often frames the “real” world as the epistemic point of reference in thinking about identities in the virtual world. This article, however, considers cyberspace as its own epistemic point of reference and proposes “wikisexuality,” a new category of sexuality in cyberspace that takes into account the fluidity of sexuality, highlights the constant formation of sexual identities, and reflects the non-linear, postmodern, and chaotic formation of sexuality that moves us beyond the mono versus multiple categories of sexuality and beyond the nature versus nurture debate by evoking the notion of sexuality as constantly shifting with every encounter.
