So, I was reading another thread about relationship boundaries, and my question never got answered so I am posting a general question.
Do you fantasize about other memebers of the opposite sex, or same sex? Do you and your SO have any boundaries regarding that?

Personally, I do not fantasize about other guys. It just doesn’t do it for me. I feel lucky, bc that wasn’t the case before meeting my DH. If he wants to think about other women, that’s fine with me – I just don’t want him to tell me. I want to live in my happy bubble where I’m the only woman DH wants to picture naked. Even if that’s not true, that’s fine – I just prefer to think that way. 😉

I don’t. To me, DH is honestly the most attractive man I have ever seen. No need!

@legenwaitforitdary: Setting boundaries for the thoughts you have in your own head? Um… how would that be enforced?

If you’re having sex and he’s actually talking about the other woman he’s picturing, that, that’s effing weird. But when we’re having sex, I feel very in the moment and don’t really have the head space to think about someone else.
When one is masturbating, think about whoever you want, that is “you” time.

I don’t fantasize about other men because my husband is the most beautiful, sexy man I’ve ever known. He’s really all I need, he fulfills me. 🙂 (Don’t gag, lol). Not sure if he fantasizes; don’t know and don’t care.

We have agreed that we don’t care about fantasizing as long as we’d rather have sex with each other instead. So basically it’s understandable if he or I are not in the mood than the other one can pleasure himself or myself. Of course roleplaying is always welcomed in our relationship.

I don’t think anyone should ever consider what another person thinks about on their own time.
There is no way to police it, and it’s stupid to even try.

I think it’s super hard to put boundaries around fantasizing. It goes into “mind police”, big brother territory for me. My DH can think about whatever he wants and I hope that I can too!

I don’t really think about other guys, but I’m just really into my husband. Even when I consider a celebrity to be “good looking” it’s usually because they have one or more traits that are similar to DH. I do get the occasional girl crush though (current one is Malece Miller and I’m always in love with Cheryl Cole), but it’s not really “fantasizing.” It’s more like an infatuation, my husband thinks it’s hilarious. I don’t think either of us puts boundaries on fantasizing, but we’re very open about our sexual fantasies with each other.

@legenwaitforitdary: To asnwer the question, yes, I fantasize and I do so about women. I never fantasize about guys because I find my FH quite ravishing.

@legenwaitforitdary: My thoughts are mine alone, no one gets to tell me what I can or cannot think about. I can’t fathom even attempting to tell another person what they are allowed to think about. If Fi wants to imagine he’s with some other girl while he’s masturbating, there’s nothing wrong with that. Fantasies are personal and private, if a couple are willing to explore those fantasies together then sharing is important, otherwise they stay private.

If any of you watch the King of Queens..there is an episode where Carrie writes fantasies that Doug is allowed to have…Haha..that’s why I was wondering if people actually do that in real life…I forgot to mention that in the OP

@drummerbride: <— This exactly.
Trying to put boundaries and police fantasies and thoughts is ridiculously controlling and very Big Brother like. Personally, I think it’s quite normal to fantasize about other people. However, I don’t think the Bee will give you a very accurate poll as the vast majority of people here are women who are engaged, about to become engaged, or recently married and thus at a super high point in their relationships. Thus entertaining thoughts about another man or woman would be a foreign notion.
