Mr. 99 isn’t much for it, but even if he was, i would not consider it cheating.  It’s a picture on a screen, how does that work?

Absolutely not. We would both be in trouble in that case.

I don’t like it but I don’t think it’s cheating. Unless maybe he’s addicted? Even then, no it’s not cheating.

Mr B watches it every now and then. No biggie. Everyone has fantasies. As long as he’s not over-doing it and coming home to me every night, no problem in my book. Even if you aren’t crazy about it it does not constitute as cheating.

Absolutely not.  And it’s not just men who watch porn 😉 I feel like that’s the same as saying masturbation is cheating, which I think is absurd.

I wouldn’t consider it cheating, but it can certainly be a dealbreaker. I would be pretty upset if FH was watching it, because he doesn’t and is, for lack of a better word, against it.

Cheating is simply defined by the boundaries of the couple. But back to your question, I don’t believe it’s cheating. I can see how it could still manage to violate a relationship in other ways, such as causing neglect, but in the traditional sense of cheating? No. Not cheating. For me at least.

By The Way, Darling Husband just weighed in: he believes it’s cheating only if you jerk off with someone else’s hand….(face palm)

Oh Lord no!  I actually enjoy porn, probably more than my Fiance lol It’s good healthy fun as long as it doesn’t become an obsession.

@MsLittleBookOwl:  We watch together, spices things up a bit.  My take on porn is it’s completely visceral, there are no emotions, no attachment (unless of course there is addiction involved).  Sexuality is strange… everyone has fantasies, some wierder than others.  I think as long as both people are in the loop and on the same page, let your freak flag fly!

Psssh, I love porn, so call me a big fat cheater then. My SO watches less often than me, and it doesn’t bother me a bit. How do you cheat with pixels? He is not connecting with someone else, so it’s not cheating.

It can be unhealthy though if he’s neglecting you for porn, but for most folks I doubt that’s the case.
