Emotional Infidelity... Is it Cheating?

If you've negotiated a monogamous relationship with your partner, you've probably set up some ground rules. For most, that means no sex with someone who isn't your significant other. Sounds simple, right? Well, "it ain't necessarily so."



I don't think that I would consider it to be cheating but I would definitely feel very hurt that my spouse was going to someone else. I'm not a clingy, overly emotional female by any means but in this case I would wonder what I did wrong, or where we went so wrong to get it to the point that he couldn't talk to me about what was going on.


Yes, I think it is because my husband has done this and if you think about having sex with someone else, you want to act upon it. It doesn't just have to be physical. That's one way spouces can abuse their wives, emotional abuse .. by emotional affairs.


Yes I think it is. When you are having an emotional attachment to another person, it is taking away from your relationship. It also delops bonds, and feelings that may go deeper and farthur into cheating.

So much of the pleasure that a woman enjoys during sex is in her mind ...her mind can make or break the amount of pleasure she gives and enjoys feel a person is not with you emotional is a total turn-off......


I think that fantasizing is natural, I think that many woman do it....maybe they don't want to admit it, but they do it...No not all. And not always. And not with every man, but maybe sometimes.

I have definitely done it before, and I wouldn't consider it cheating.


my ex Paul emotionally cheated on me for a year i met him through twitter and he was talking to a married woman when i met him he started to talk to me he had lied about her to begin with and he said he wanted to meet her but then he said he couldn't be with her because she was married then we proceeded to meet and have dates and for a year of seeing each other making love and being with each other he decides to carry on with his internet romance and then he calls me on the phone asking me to have sex with him and i said not until your done with your whore which i always thought she was because she was cheating on her husband with him and she was an alcoholic with two kids in which one of them thinks shes a nut and paul well he says he could never be with her physically he's just using her for emotional support which is stupid because he's using her emotionally and he has used me emotionally and physically, he says he hasn't and he says he loves me and wants to marry me and still to this day calls me on the phone but oh well right. but just like this lady states, he does the whole it's going to be ok act.. then claims he wants to just meet this woman he's stated to me that she OWES him a blow job but that he's tried to have phone sex with her and it's like having sex with that Sarah Michelle Gallager SUPERSTAR! i mean shes pathetic she continued to harass me and my boyfriend during our relationship because shes so hard up because shes gone bankrupt and thinks he has money because he's a photographer.. but little does she know he's BROKE! he is REALLY JUST broke! and i think will be living in his car!!! talk about KARMA!!! its all going to come back to them. really and now i've met someone who is wonderful he's sweet and good to me and loves me back the same way and doesn't cheat on me!

Interviews with Nina Hartley

  • Nina Hartley, adult film actress, adult film director, sex educator, feminist, and author, celebrates her one year anniversary as SexIs' resident sex advice expert. In an industry where few performers last more than a couple years, what's her secret for nearly 3 decades of success?

    Adult Industry Icon Nina Hartley defies the critics of pornography who declare women to be exploited by it, having no choice but to be willing victims. She was well on her way to a career in nursing when she chose a different path, starring in her first adult film in 1984. Her debut performance was in the film Educating Nina, which was produced and directed by the veteran porn star Juliet Anderson (better known as "Aunt Peg"). The film turned out to be the first step in a journey to adult film superstardom. Nearly 30 years later, she has gone on to feature in over 400 first-run adult films, and has become one of the most enduring and recognizable performers in the industry. Nina has been a driving force in the adult industry for nearly three decades as an adult film actress, director, sex educator, feminist and author. She has been a tireless, outspoken advocate for sexual freedom and considers herself a sex-positive feminist who seeks to "educate others from a place of practice and not just theory." Nina has been a visible industry spokesperson who seeks to change negative perceptions of adult entertainment and sex itself. In 1993, she and ten other adult film stars were arrested in Las Vegas for "having a lesbian performance in the front of an audience." She actively supports the Woodhull Foundations whose goal is to promotes sexual freedom as a fundamental human right. She challenges the radical feminist view that the porn industry, by definition, victimizes women—instead, she points out that in her lengthy career, she's seen few examples of coercion of performers on set, and none of a physical nature. "Women have the right of refusal, always, and exercise it." How has the industry changed, since Nina has been began her career? Would she recommend her path to women today? What is the most important lesson she's learned along the way? Join us in welcoming Nina Hartley to the Community Interview in celebration of the 1 year anniversary of Tuesdays With Nina!
