Do you believe that viewing porn is emotional cheating?

It is cheating if he is sexually aroused by women and is therefore not giving her the attention she wants.

He shouldn't have done it if it made HER uncomfortable.
But, since you aren't uncomfortable with it, then there isn't a problem.

I think it really depends on the couple and situation. If watching porn for the one person is becoming an addiction and they're keeping it hidden from the other then it becomes a problem. But if you're really open with your partner and share the fact that you do enjoy watching porn it's not really a problem. Heck I've even watched porn with my boyfriend before.

Depends, but frankly, how many of us have watched romantic movies and sighed or thought "Oh man how great would that be?". Is that "emotional cheating"?
Same basic concept, to me.

No, as long as you are honest about it.

It's hard to say. You can view it and not be emotionally cheating, but does it really matter if you lover thinks it is?

Absolutely not, porn is just a fantasy and its normal and healthy to enjoy it occasionally.

Not at all, can't think of a way it would be cheating.

I think "emotional cheating" is a bit much. I feel like that is more of an appropriate term for an outside relationship that has not become physical. But I know what is meant. For us, porn doesn't have a very comfortable place in our relationship. I feel a little guilty digging in alone. People may think this is excessive, but each relationship has its limits, and boundaries for one may not be healthy for another. We are very happy as we are.

I look at porn all the time. I don't think it's cheating. It baffles me that other women have a problem with it.

I have no problems with it. Usually when he looks he comes to me to get off anyway!

Since we watch it TOGETHER and it is simply EYE CANDY as a "turn on" aid, NOPE. Not cheating at all. No more then watching some hunky dude or gorgeous woman on a soap opera or seeing beautiful people on a beach on the travel channel would be!!! It's FANTASY. Nothing more.

Every time you see an attractive person in the mall or at work and spend an extra half second looking at them, it would be cheating!!! Sorry..no way. I agree with you fully. Looking is HUMAN nature. Cheating is doing a LOT more then looking, it is DESIRING and then ACTING in some way ON that desire.

BINGO. Well said. Gee, once more we are in COMPLETE agreement on an issue here.

Well said. I don't understand people that let it hurt their relationship...instead of letting that "fire" heat it up and make it BETTER!!!

I agree with you, but I just don't see how someone can "choose" porn over a real life, flesh and blood lover as their "choice activity". Makes no sense to me. We watch it TOGETHER and it can be a great turn on...or just background noise and visuals that are still better then CNN or the WEATHER CHANNEL when having sex (we like having light on in the room...so the TV is perfect, not too bright lighting, truth be told. Easier to turn on and off then candles too.). Till they come up with the fully interactive, robotic "Real Doll", I just don't see "cheating" with a non real partner...including one on a screen only!!!!

As a guy, depends. I would say that if you're viewing it alone/solo then in a way it can be seen as that. I don't watch porn, personally though. If its being viewed together then no.

No, not unless either partner is choosing to watch porn as a substitute for a real relationship.

I watch porn with my partner. It's often something we share especially when we weren't living together yet.

More people should enjoy porn instead of being offended by it... after all those people chose that as their profession; it's hardly personal.

Of course not! It's not like the person in the porn even knows my particular boyfriend is watching them. Camming is different. THAT is basically cheating. And talking to someone and receiving pictures from someone in an intimate nature is cheating but just buying a porno? Uh, no.

That depends, are both people in the relationship okay with it?

If no: Yes, it is.
If no: No, it isn't
