Global population statistics indicate that 16.7% of the world is connected to the internet (http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm). In Asia 10.8% are connected (representing 36.4% of total global users). Cyber-counsellingOn-line sex counselling (cyber counselling, e-therapy, Web-counselling) is conducted by email, chat rooms and videoconferencing.
