    Pretty self explanatory, I'm wondering where people here sit on this. After you've answered the opening question, consider these:

    Is watching porn cheating?
    Is watching VR porn cheating?
    Is masturbating with a fleshlight cheating? How about a robot without AI?
    Is getting a lapdance from a sex worker cheating? What about if you masturbate to the sex worker while she is in front of you?

    When you think of these, maybe speak from personal experience. How comfortable would you be with your partner using/doing these things?

    I'm fascinated with what people consider cheating in monogamous relationships, and as technology advances, where is the line compared to traditionally?

    Is the AI self aware?
    Yes - Yes
    No - No

    Depends how the culture interprets it, back in the good ole' Rome days, we're screwing slaves considered cheating?

    Plus wouldn't that be the human-ai relation? As a slave?

    Pretty sure any questions of what constitutes cheating or not is entirely subjective and will be determined by boundaries set by partners. So.. there's no definitive answer.

    Exactly, but what is your and others answers?

    Like, why to you would it be for some things on the list, but not others? Is it just comfort level?

    So you're telling me you have a girlfriend Fergus, and she has sex with this non sentient AI, but despite this it knows what she likes, her name, how to tickle her under her knees, probably how to make her orgasm every time, and you'd be okay with this because it wouldn't be cheating?

    Vice versa, you see a robot who can do the same things to you, how do you think this would be received?

    I don't think your answer is as simple as you're memeing it out to be.

    I think, to me anyways, if the AI isn't aware it would be more of a service. Like is your a computer a slave when it plays music for you, or is it performing a service? I think slavery implies forced action, and there is nothing forced about this - its what it was designed to do, assuming.

    I wouldn't consider it cheating, but I think it would speak to the state of our relationship if my S/O was choosing to fuck a robot instead of me, so I'd probably have to call 'er a quits. To your other questions;
    Is watching porn cheating?

    No, this isn't cheating... its porn, whatever. We all do it.
    Is watching VR porn cheating?
    No for reasons above.

    Is masturbating with a fleshlight cheating? How about a robot without AI?
    No

    Is getting a lapdance from a sex worker cheating? What about if you masturbate to the sex worker while she is in front of you?

    Not really getting a lapdance, but I wouldn't approve. Masturbating to a sex worker? Yeah that's probably cheating.

    Granted I'm adulterous AF so take this all with a grain of salt.

    I don't see an issue. If it's simply following a set of instructions and code, then sure nbd. It's just a significantly more advanced vibrator, really.

    This is actually a hard one.. Would it be cheating if you porked a pork?
    I guess it depends on how good the robot is. If it's so well made it like a human then yes.

    For the following. Masturbation isn't cheating, but if i found out my girlfriend had a 25 cm dildo hidden away id dump her ass.

    If your girl goes out with another guy behind your back because she enjoys his company in a romantic setting, even though they don't have any kind of sex. She might as well have been cheating imo. It's not the sex that is important in cheating. It's the emotions put into it.

    Edit;: acutally after reading CNiper's post, i changed ny mind with the robot ai, it's like the humongus dildo, might not be cheating but it's a relationship breaker. Girl is not satisfied.

    As long as there is no risk of a STD or injury, I would have no problem with my partner fucking a robot.

    But what of those lonely nights when your return home from work and want to indulge in your lover? But as you walk into the bedroom, she's in bed with Sex-Gud 4000. Knowing she intends to finish later, your kicked to the couch for sleep as you hear Sex-Gud 4000 ram her against the wall.

    You still gud bro?

    Will need to get one for research to confirm.

    But I don't think watching porn is cheating tbh. Plenty of couples watch that shit together, and even if their sex life is unsatisfied and one of them is watching porn, they're just using it to get off because either their partner can't or they are bored/looking to move on etc etc. Unless they put out for someone else or insert their ancient Tibetan dagger inside a twinkle cave it ain't cheetin

    I'm still fine. If I wanted to have sex I would have planned for it in advance and communicated it with her. If I want to talk to her about something then I can wait for her to finish with the robot. I wouldn't of married someone who is making so much noise during regular sleeping hours.

    This is the thinking cap guys, I'm trying to be not strict with this topic, but if your shitposts have no nuggets or diamonds of intellectual thought mixed with them then I will have no option but to delete.

    you know
    What if we define the robot not on its own measurement of intelligence but on the Turing Test? If the robot is intelligent enough to the point at which it cannot be distinguished from a human, wouldn't that make whatever sexual act in question cheating? It is easy to say that in some cases an AI might as well be a vibrator, but if that vibrator is self aware and has a similar appearance to a human being, who are we to say that a robot is without emotional attachment and can't develop the same emotions a human has

    This is my own opinion, but the concept of cheating, to me, involves physical and/or emotional bonding with another person. Hence cheating, as in you are cheating your partner love by giving some of it to someone else.
    I do not consider watching porn or masturbating in any way cheating, as self-satisfaction through sex is not cheating anyone. You are likely to have had sex with your partner instead of your hand if you had the opportunity, and thus, there is no 'cheating' going on. Beyond that, you are not giving your love to anyone else, and your partner is not being "cheated" of your affections. It is a 'victimless crime'.

    To answer the thread:
    Having sex with a non-sentient robot is not cheating, as it basically just using a really expensive fleshlight to get off.
    Having sex with a sentient robot is cheating, as it is giving your love to someone else.
