I don't know if this topic has been asked yet but i wanted to get an opinon on this. i was watching the Joe Rogan standup the other day and he was talking about the Dr. Phil show and how this man was told by Dr. Phil that masturbating to porn was cheating. i believe we all think about someone else at some time in our life whether it is in a dream or at work or at school. i feel that both men and women at some point are going to masturbate to either a vision of someone or while watching someone. it is just an urge that we cannot always control.
so is it cheating if you masturbate to porn

Of course it's not. It's only cheating if you're getting any satisfaction outside of physical or if you're using it as a substitute for sex with your partner.

In one word...no.

No no no no. There is no human on another human contact so its not cheating. It might be weird for you to think about your significant other masturbating to porn but its definitely not cheating.

Damn it, this is what I should have done my senior thesis on! lawl.

No. Masturbation to porn is not cheating, in my opinion.

The difference is a matter of seeking gratification through interaction (cheating) and gratification through stimulation (not cheating).

There is a deep ideological rift between two schools of ethical thought that each interpret what you think and what you do. For many people and beliefs, even just thinking something can be immoral, whereas others believe that you can think all you want so long as you do not act on it.

But for sake of tangible moral application, one cannot logically interpret physical self-gratification by visual and auditory stimulation as "cheating" because the critical component of interaction is missing. The masturbator in question is not seeking to fill emotional voids, nor is he/she deliberately violating a sanctified trust or bond by relieving sexual pressures in a way that causes no externally negative consequences.

I say it is not cheating to masturbate to porn. It's not another person, and it's not another relationship. As long as you don't expect your girlfriend to be exactly like them or do all that freaky stuff (well, if she wants to, have fun!), and for the love of god DON'T think about the porn girls while having sex with your girlfriend.

In a word, yes. According to my beliefs this is adultery.

"You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.' But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." - Matthew 5:27-28
