Do you believe that viewing porn is emotional cheating?

Depends on the person, but no I personally don't believe it to be cheating.

Nope! I don't think viewing porn counts as any kind of cheating, emotional or otherwise. Not in my relationships, at least - people can set their own boundaries with their partners.

I don't know. I think it has to do with the intent during the viewing of said porn.

Emotional? I don't know.

If porn viewing is compulsive, if arousal can't be achieved without it, and if it inhibits someone from connecting with a human being... That's an issue.

I think it does if there's not a mutual understanding about it, and you're hiding it from your partner.

I totally agree with this!

I dont think of it as cheating but I would become jealous if they where watching it all the time instead of being with me.

I wouldn't consider it cheating.

I don't see how. If it was considered cheating, then I guess hubby and I are unfaithful. -_- Porn is entertainment. I personally don't think there is any way at all that you can cheat like that.

Absolutely not! Me and the boyfriend will even discuss our porn-watching habits with eachother.

I don't view it as cheating because I'm not in love with the person on the screen. I think emotional cheating is when you have feelings or fall in love with someone else. Porn is just a fantasy to help you get in the mood to get off. I don't necessarily want to meet the people involved, nor do I ever speak to them. So I don't see that as cheating.

Watching porn is in no way at all cheating. However, if someone went and found someone to watch on cam, I would consider that cheating. Porn is made for the masses. For anyone to watch. A cam is someone doing something specifically for one person. That I am not okay with. As for it being emotional cheating, it's not that, but it is cheating.

not for me, it does not. actually, I couldn't even tell you how many pornos I've watched just out of curiosity, rather than because of a sexual urge!

I said no, because I really don't think it is. If he's watching porn and we haven't had sex in over a week, I'm pissed. I know he's not jacking off, because of where the his computer is at. It ticks me off when he's watching porn, not having sex with me, and I'm always ready to go. I think of it more as him cheating me out of sex. I don't know if that makes any sense. The only time I got really pissed off and made a big deal about it, I was pregnant and horny. I blew up at him pretty bad.

No I think as long as your not communicating with the person in the porn it is not cheating

Heck no

i think it's no big deal. i think even having "just sex" with another person is no big deal. don't bring home a disease, a baby, or fall in love and we're fine.

I can get calling it cheating if it isn't something that is "allowed" in the relationship... but emotional cheating? I think not.

I can't say I've ever been sitting there watching porn and telling the model how my day was and how I feel.

Not at all. My girlfriend and I have openly admitted to each other that we watch porn, and I think it would be fun to watch it together one day. It really depends on the person I guess, but we lucked out in that we happen to feel very similarly about it.

Porn isn't emotional to me. Just an erotic visual.

I would have chosen other. It depends on many factors. Are both people OK with it? If you have to hide it then it is not good for your relationship. If you are obsessed with it and spend more time watching and thinking about porn than having/thinking about sex with your partner then it is bad for your relationship. Anything that takes up more time and thoughts than your spouse can be considered cheating.

Not cheating, just fantasizing.
