Do you believe that viewing porn is emotional cheating?

I agree, if there is dishonesty or some sort of violation of trust. Also, if it does not become an addiction or obsession.

The dishonesty or violation of trust is only when they're hiding it though. If there's nothing to hide, then there's no problem. I'm trying to get my man to watch porn again because I think removing the stigma and the secretiveness, takes away all the power. Besides, I know he'll only watch it when I'm unavailable sexually. Specifically on my TOM week. Other than that, we have sex too often for him to need porn as stimulation.

I see porn as just a sexual relief and nothing more really.

I don't know that many people have emotional connections to porn, firstly. Secondly, it's a fantasy. It's some form of media - video, pictures, literature - how can one cheat on a partner with media?
Personally, I prefer that my partners watch porn if they like it. If they don't, whatever, but there should absolutely be no restrictions of that sort.

I think it completely depends on the situation. I like porn and I enjoy watching it with my partner and I know he does too but if one day porn was all he wanted and instead of being with me sexually, he was watching porn then yes.

My guy is a long haul truck driver and is gone from home for 5-6 days then home 1-2. He watches porn all the time when he is on the road. I think it is a healthy release and considering the alternatives, a great choice.

I'd say no, but there are situations in which I'd say yes, such as when the partner is being neglected in favor of pornography. Because I have a close tie to a relationship like this and have witnessed this sort of behavior since I was young, porn is a very difficult subject for me.

However, I try to be understanding and open about it since I do enjoy it myself and realize that in a healthy relationship, pornography is so far from being a replacement that I would probably laugh hysterically if someone tried to push that ideology onto me. As much as I enjoy porn, I'd gladly give it up for my partner—even though that's absurd!—because the two aren't anywhere near synonymous.

Just like how using a tampon is cheating.

Oh wait.

Hahaha, I guess you got a very clear answer. But then, you have to remember who you are asking that question to.

no, but if my man hid it from me I would have a problem with it, he is allowed to watch it and has no reason to hide, so the lying would upset me more.

No. Just like masturbating or toying isn't cheating, porn is certainly not. Cheating involves another person you're actually interacting with on a physical level, imo, not inanimate things.

I used to be offended by his porn watching but that was back when I was dealing with body image issues and he was miserable with his job and acting like a jerk for about 3 months. We're better now, worked everything out and he's got a different job so watching porn for us is more a hobby or something we like to do together on occasion.

Not technically cheating, but can cause relationship problems.

It depending on the circumstance...
Does it make your lover uncompfortable? Then yes, if it doesn't then no.
Personally I would mind if my boyfriend was watching porn that would be it for me.
But if it is something you both want to do/ enjoy doing.. then no.

Everything in a relationship has to do with keeping both of you compfortable and happy.
