Are Virtual Reality Sex and Phone Sex Forms of Cheating?

When it comes to cheating, many couples have openly discussed what their definition is. The incentive for the rule they create is the important part. According to Psychology Today, that rule regarding infidelity may be blunt and becomes complicated when you begin looking at scenarios that are in gray areas.

Every couple has their own idea of the definition of unfaithfulness or infidelity is. Sometimes they have even had conversations about it to reach an agreement. The question remains whether flirtatious or even sexual emails with people other than your committed partner is considered cheating?

We are living in a time which constantly changes with technology. While things like phone sex and dirty emails have been around for a while, now we are beginning to see forms of virtual sex.

Some believe pornography is a type of cheating even though there is not an actual person engaging the viewer. The actors are not aware of who is watching, so it is one-sided. The near future is sure to bring more virtual and realistic sexual experiences.

Virtual reality (VR), along with sexting or phone sex, may not get your partner pregnant, but it will be so realistic that it will be extremely close to having completely safe sex with a stranger. This could be a harmful encounter for many, especially those who are addicted to sex and use this encounter to continue their addictive behavior.
