    If you can't have S&x with your partner for whatever reason, and you still make the relationship work, then i don't think that a bit of flirting online is necessarily bad. I think It would be very hard to go without any contact of that type at all in your life.

    If you are in a s*exless relationship (for whatever reasons) it's a bit of a different situation that in a relationship where you are having regular shags.

    I agree with this. Cheating isn't always because of something you're not getting at home. It can definitely be a reason, but it's not always the case.

    Yep makes total sense.

    I see both sides..I mean I am in a sexless marriage and the frustration is pretty raw.

    I know there are women who have been living that way for over 15 years..

    whats better..nameless cyber sex, or leave?

    I'd be very hurt if my husband was connecting emotionally to another woman instead of me- regardless of how/where this took place, even in the absence of physical touch.

    Absolutely still cheating. Wether it's physical or not, it's still emotionally cheating and wrong.

    I totally get the pain.

    But how long would you expect your partner to go without touch of any kind..

    I am lucky in that I still have touch..but some of these women do not..
    Like spine and brain injuries.

    I think every relationship is probably different, and you'd have to find out what works for you as a couple. If you can't have s*x with your partner for a very long time (years), but still have the desire, then an online thing might save you from breaking up.

    I might be way off here, but in the absence of sexual intercourse, are there other things these couple can do to maintain sexual intimacy? I would think that would be the best if possible. And what FITB said about discussing boundaries beforehsnd

    ETA just read the bit about spine and brain injuries and I'm stumped, I'd still he really hurt if my husband were emotionally cheating, but like PP said if it saved the marriage maybe it's worth it? I dunno, very hard one

    You can't always control your emotions however you CAN control your actions.

    Therefore in my eyes, emotional affairs are not cheating.

    And OP is talking about a situation where s*x is not PHYSICALLY possible.

    I understand that, it would be terribly hard and I really feel for anyone in that situation but why can't the couple discuss both their needs ?
