No, not at all. It's not like people are falling in love with performers when they watch porn, they're just getting off to them.

No. No more than watching a "chick flick" or romantic comedy is.

Porn is fantasy, fantasy isn't cheating. Also, as many people become aroused while watching porn and/or reading erotica, it often will benefit your partner, as ...
Very well said!

If so, would that make masturbation cheating too?
I give a big "nope" to this poll question.

As others have alluded to, if watching porn is some form of unfaithfulness, then so is using sex toys.

I think that if it became a serious addiction, then like any addiction, I might consider it to be emotionally neglectful. Casual porn viewing, though? Totally fine.

Like Airen Wolf said, it isn't cheating but when someone's choosing to watch porn and jack off rather than have sex with their partner it feels like cheating.

no way!! Porn is normal and healthy (to a degree), there's no way I'd ever view it as cheating. I encourage my partner to look at porn whenever he wants, same with myself Porn is just... porn! It's not being involved with someone else, I don't see it any different than watching a movie.
