I can understand her sentiment, but I don't believe that porn or masturbation is cheating. Otherwise, I'm a cheater too.
The problem arises (pardon the pun) when the spouse feels the need to hide it or conceal it or is ashamed. If you feel shame at what you're doing, then something is very wrong. If you need porn to become aroused, then something is wrong in your relationship and needs to be addressed. (NEED it, not LIKE it) Now I'm not saying there needs to be daily or weekly conversations of "I watched such and such" or that every visual encounter needs to be confessed, but if you find yourself deleting the browsing history because you're ashamed, there's a deeper issue here.
