Do you believe that viewing porn is emotional cheating?

K-smith K-smith
The way I feel is that I can't go without porn, simply because I love looking at female forms, In my opinion It's not that I enjoy the woman in porn over my spouse, It's that I just can't get enough of woman. That being said, no matter what the woman in a porno would never compare to that of my spouse, simply because I don't love the woman in the porn, as I love my spouse.

I don't think it's cheating, though I don't particularly care for when my boyfriend watches it. I just feel like, why don't you call me or just come over? More than likely I'd be happy to see him.

At in the least. My hubby as a good amount of porn on the computer and I have no issue with it. Of course, much of it is our own homemade porn.

Definitely not emotional cheating. It would require me to be emotionally attached to be considered emotionally cheating.

I do not think that at all, and have never thought about it like that.

no. its just a visual aid.. no different than erotica.. as long as it doesn't interfere with how/why/when yer making love to your sig other, why should it matter? hell, i can't even cheat in my own dreams even tho id like to since id never do it in real life. porn creates a sexual object surrogate.. surely you wouldn't want to make your sig other a sex object, would you?

I think it's hilarious that 100% of people said that it's not cheating. I definitely agree, but I never thought it would be unanimous.

No, of course not. I love that this poll is unanimous.

That's definitely a good point.

i don't know of anyone that doesn't have something or some kind of it. even food porn. but it's how the couple deals with it. i know what my partners have and where it is. and a lot of times it can really add to the sex.

Not emotionally, lustfully maybe. If you're partner doesn't like it, then there's a problem

For it to be considered cheating in any way, there has to be a connection - physical or emotional. Even if the star of their dreams was standing next to them, the chances of your partner actually getting to have sex with them is astronomical.

For it to be emotional cheating, your partner would have to dump or transfer their feelings for you onto them in a way that bonds the two together. It's a paid actress on a SCREEN. Can't touch it, can't hold it, can't hear it talk back...there's no reality there at all.

I agree with pretty much everyone that it's not cheating.

If porn is cheating, then they can certainly run a quite a few seasons of "Cheaters" just on me alone.

Porn is just a fantasy for some, or just simple visual stimulation that helps people have more fun getting off - I can't see how anybody could view porn as a form of cheating in any sense of the word.

I'm a firm believer that if more couples would loosen up and watch porn together, and then try new things they saw from time to time, then marriages wouldn't be as fucked up as they are.

It's not cheating in anyway at all.

With that said I do work with this woman who thinks her man would be cheating if he watched porn or even masturbated. Rofl

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.

Nope, not at all, unless it is becoming a substitute for intimacy with your partner.

I don't think of the women on there per se, It's more of what I could do with my wife. It's almost like an instructional type thing.

To me, emotional cheating involves actual feelings for another person.

Porn is just a fun fantasy. There is no cheating at all with it. It's something healthy and fun to watch.

I don't have any problem at all with my boyfriend watching porn. These men and women, it's their job to be on that screen. They can't talk to him or take care of him or love him the way I do so if he's having fun and not canceling plans to watch it, why not?

Cheating to me can be physical and/or emotional. Porn is neither of these.

I think what constitutes cheating in a relationship has to be determined by the people involved. I'd never consider porn cheating, but I know some women who are horrified by the idea of their men watching porn, and knowing they do causes them a lot of pain. Though perhaps you could argue that it still isn't cheating, just dishonesty or violation of trust. However, that's all cheating really is to me when it comes down to it.
