    I totally agree Ms. Boop.

    Liblady...if your guy (gal) is online masturbating while interacting with another person for the expressed reason of sexual stimulation...then he might well be cheating you out of having sex with him (her). It might also be draining their need to be intimate with you in any regard.

    Exactly as I was saying.

    In Mullikin’s case, he didn’t want an affair, but “little things snowball so fast” which the experts say is typical in a virtual affair. “Pretty soon, you go from being online for 20 minutes a day, then to an hour,” said Wish. “It becomes addicting, and then you are staying up till until 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. online. It becomes like your virtual friend. And the problem is, that creates a level of emotional distance in your marriage, whether you acknowledge it or not.”

    You do not believe that there are many open marriages/relationships unless as a product of compromise? It does not have to be a compromise, just what the other feels comfortable allowing, if they feel it is merely flirtation and they are comfortable with flirtation and can trust their spouse/SO then so be it.

    Just because you cannot imagine that there are many (however you might quantify the term many) does not mean anything, they do exist. There are all varieties of relationships, those that are open to swinging, those that are open to polyamory, those that enjoy when their spouse/SO flirts with others and/or leads them on, those that watch porn together, married porn stars, married phone sex operators, ect, ect, ect. Relationships such as these examples (and others that are more open than "traditional" marriages) do not necessitate a compromise, just a comfort level where the partner does not feel hurt/threatened by it, a willingness to allow, and in a multitude of these cases I think it would be safe to say that trust is almost assuredly a huge part of the equation - heck in some cases it can be a source of enjoyment for both parties involved.

    Re: Is cyber sex/sexting "cheating"

    To specifically respond to the underlying Wiener wiener issue that is what almost certainly prompted this thread, The situation between he and his wife is their issue, and for them to determine. If he lied to her about it, then there was a betrayal of trust there, this is very problematic IMO (still this is ultimately between the two of them). The ultimate determination on whether it is cheating and whether he betrayed her trust is between them, and more specifically up to his wife - she should be the sole judge jury and executioner (should one be needed).

    What is problematic is that he lied to the public, and especially to his constituents, there is a definitive betrayal of trust here.

    Re: Is cyber sex/sexting "cheating"

    I voted I dont know because I can't possible make that decision for others or even me in all cases.

    Every relationship is different even my own change from relationship to relationship.

    SO many factors to consider.

    Is it only texting, do you know the person etc etc

    for example if my wife/gf was having "cyber sex", masturbating and being nude for the guy next door or or her co-worker she interacts with daily that would bother "ME" for sure.

    If it was cyber sex with some random stranger from Australia I probably dont care at all?

    Id have to be in the relationship with it happening to know how I would feel.

    I belive it is cheating to some degree of cheating.
