Is “sexting” cheating?

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.


A new study looking at how people define infidelity shows men and women believe that sexting is as harmful to a relationship as cheating.

In a YouGov poll of 1,000 U.S. adults commissioned by the Huffington Post, 85 percent of female respondents deemed the non-physical act dishonest, as did 74 percent of men.

Facebooking a former flame and forming a close bond with someone via text or email were also outed as adulterous acts.

    Yes sexting is just like cheating cause if you really love and care about the person you are with there should be no thoughts about anyone else or texting anyone who is not your partner with sexual texts.

      Unless the partner is cool with it. Cheating is only cheating when it's deceptive/hidden produces lies and crosses boundaries set up between the partners. Each person is going to look at this question differently and if you aren't sure about your partner's response, put down the phone because you have some things to talk about.

      One thing that many fail to acknowledge is that just because you form a relationship with one, you cannot automatically turn off your attraction to all other people on the planet.

    There is a reason why people cheat, why they talk and flirt with others.
    There is a message there. Look at it we do not own anything especially people. God did not put limits on us. Man put limits on us.

    I seldom comment, but after reading through a few of the remarks on Is sexting cheating?
    | WPMT FOX43. I do have a couple of questions for
    you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or does it give the impression
    like a few of the comments look as if they are coming from brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing at other sites,
    I would like to follow you. Would you list of every one of all your
    social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page
    or twitter feed?
