That's what I was afraid of ... and yeah, knew. :( I haven't done it. My partner has ... no libido and hasn't for years (we have kids). For really long stretches, we had no sex of any kind. I've been pushing, and we are having some sex now, and physically she enjoys it, but she doesn't desire it. I've gotten in good shape (she hates hers) ... I just want to feel desired. I guess I knew this would not be okay, but asked on the off chance lots of people would say 'oh no, its fine'.

  • yes it is, it's still a sexual act.

    just because there's no touching and the other person is clothed, doesn't make it right.

    let's say for example you have a girlfriend and she masturbates in front of another man, would you be OK with that? I sure as hell wouldn't be.

  • Ask your partner. Her relationship, her call; she gets to say what cheating is for her.

    I wouldn't care, but that's because I'm uninterested in exclusive relationships, so I never have this problem.

  • cheating occurs when you deliberately hide something from your partner to do something sexual or romantic with another person knowing very well that your partner will not like it if he/she comes to know.

  • If you're doing it without your partner's knowledge or approval, yes, it counts as cheating in my book.

    • I'm sorry. You should try talking to her & maybe seeing a sex therapist?

    • Been talking to her for a decade. A few things have helped marginally (moving us from nothing to some sex) but they don't make her feel desire. Its quite recent we started having sex again, and her hormones are changing, so there is a possibility of change, but I'm not that hopeful. I think we can establish a regular sex life with me constantly gently pushing it, but I doubt she'll ever look at me with lust again. And it hurts.

    • Has she said specifically why she has no emotional connectedness with you? Her desire is gone for *you* but not for sex in general, is that right?

  • Absolutely, it is cheating. I would freak if my woman did that with someone else!

  • If you have to ask...

  • The only person who can really answer that, is your partner. If she thinks you cheated by doing that, then you cheated. No amount of polls or other peoples opinions are going to change her mind on the subject.
