I just wanted to ask this to clarify if the Catholic and Protestant Churches have different views regarding this matter. Thank you. :)

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

There isn't really such a thing as "the Protestant church", I'm afraid. – TRiG May 10 '14 at 18:35
There are too many types of Protestants out there. Anyone who rebels against or protest against the Roman Catholic Church during the Reformation era, and their biological or spiritual descendants, can be labelled "Protestants", really. – Double U May 10 '14 at 22:47
You're probably going to have to define 'cybersex' a little more closely as well. – DJClayworth Jun 18 '14 at 2:56
This question has the same flawed assumption as described in Is it valid to ask if “Christianity” teaches anything? Put simply, there is no one "Protestant Church" and the opinions are myriad (although you'd find pretty consistent teachings on this) You might find useful information on this post: Clarification of what sexual immorality is?, which covers the basic principles applied. – David Jun 18 '14 at 3:23

Does Ccybersex involve thinking of having sex with someone when looking at her? If so, these words of Jesus apply:

Matthew 5:27-28

You have heard that it was said to those of old, "You shall not commit adultery."

But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

I think this would basically be the standard Protestant answer. – david brainerd May 12 '14 at 2:15

There isn't one single protestant church group. There are Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Pentecostal, non-denominational, etc, but most (likely all) of them would view cybersex as a form of fornication and, therefore, sexually immoral, and a sin.

-1 Any denomination, or person, who considers cybersex to be fornication has a basic misunderstanding of the English language. That doesn't mean it's not sexually immoral (if practiced between non-married people). – Flimzy Jun 18 '14 at 19:00
