Hmm, it has a mix of both answers. Curiosity is one thing but if the reason you happen to be watching porn is BECAUSE your spouse is not giving you the kind of attention you need then that's when you must speak to him or her about how you feel. Other than that feel free to watch all the porn in the world, maybe even with your spouse if that's what it takes to set a mood or just plain taking notes for future references. Whatever those references may be.

when most guys watch porn, it doesn't mean they're interested in someone else. usually they have two entirely different channels for love and sex. they don't necessarily become emotionally attached to who/whatever turns them on like some women tend to do

personally, I wouldn't like it if my partner started getting into porn (not only because of that little fact about women, but also because I don't feel comfortable with porn-watching anyways)

But what if it's BOTH? OR NEITHER!? Porn is a placebo for real intimacy, but I don't know if I'd call it 'cheating' - as long as your partner isn't violently opposed. Like... with knives and swords and tazers and such.

I don't consider it cheating, but looking at other women that way can sort of open a man's mind to looking at women in real life that way. It may not always lead to cheating, but it seems kinda low. Porn should only be viewed by a married person when they don't have access to their lover, I guess?

I don't think its cheating, because your not taking someone out instead of your wife. However, what is concerned is what are you think about your wife and other women? Also ask if this is an addiction that is taking over your life? That doesn't changed when your married, your single, your going out, etc.

I think that is a yes and no question, it depends on context I think. I would say no most of the time, but if one is hiding it or putting too much attention/interest on it, then yes.

:/ If they think so they need to chill. And watch some.

Porn isn't just fap material, it's also a tool to get in the mood. Porn is in no way cheating. There has to be someone there to cheat with for there to be cheating going on.

Not really, I guess it'd be like claiming that watching a movie with a bunch of sex scenes would be cheating.
I can understand if some people feel that it is though, maybe this is more to personal preference for what you yourself consider to be ok...
For myself I'm not too fussed, I'd kinda prefer if my partner felt it wasn't needed, but if for some reason they did on an odd occasion then I don't mind too much. Definitely not if it's frequent, or excessive, then there's probably something wrong >_>

Well porn mostly is the only source keeping MOST (not all!) men from cheating with other women with their girlfriends or wives as as we all know, not everyone's horny always at the same time.

Wow this is the first time I've been mature over this
oh shet

I think you should check with your partner first. As long as you're both okay with it, then it doesn't matter. Even so, Some people might not consider it cheating, but are still hurt that their other half would choose something like that over them. plus, it can lead to dysfunctional relationships. I've seen this happen in my friends relationships.

I don't think so. I would probably be there watching with them if I was around. So, I don't mind them watching without me. I'm more into hentai and stuff because RL porn is awkward and looks gross.

It's a dangerous thing... Especially if it becomes an addiction... And I believe it's taking away the meaning of what love really is supposed to mean and what sex is supposed to be about...

It's a desensitizing tool...

My lover and I play porn games, sometimes together and sometimes not. We also watch, read, and look at a lot of the same stuff. (BIG NOTE: When I refer to porn, I mostly mean Hentai/Yaoi/Yuri and other Japanese-based pornography. Not Western-based) We share games, stories, tips on what to look for and all the best sites, and talk about what we liked about it. It expands our interests, gives us new ideas to test with one another, and it's one of the many ways we stay connected as a couple. I've learned a lot about myself this way, actually, and porn was one of the reasons why we even met in the first place - meeting through an anime-related kink site. So yeah, porn's had a great effect on my life. It's helped me meet the love of my life, who I am both promised to and have been with for almost five years now, it's helped me explore myself as a person so that I can be comfortable with myself and my sexuality where normal society would not let me do so, and through both of those, it's made me happy.

So, yeah, it all depends on the context of the relationship and how it's treated.

It's not favoured but it's not cheating. Like watching porn itself =/= cheating. If it leads you/the partner to cheating then that's a different matter. You can watch porn but you should at least tell your partner about it. If both sides are okay with it then it's okay. It can bo both.

In the end, everything in moderation.

hard call chief, it's even harder when your partner sometimes sits down and takes mental notes on what you find a turn on in the movies you watch :P i sort of think it's bad b/c if you have someone you love and can love physically, then why would you need ot watch others do it, but at the same time you kind of watch to either get 'ideas' or to fulfil a feeling you dont get with your partner (very rare though).

In general, I say no, it's not cheating. However, as 20% of deviantart proves, this is one of those subjects that really ought to be discussed when entering a relationship with another person.

Now making porn, that's a different matter...
