    Most men think it isn't, most women think it is. I personally think it IS, and know my husband would be devastated to find out that I'd kissed another guy. That's just sleazy. Kind of like 'oral sex isn't sex' a la slick willie. Gimme a break.

    I agree with Kday. I figure anything you wouldn't want your girlfriend/wife/boyfriend/husband to do is cheating if you do it.

    Duh! Of course it is cheating!

    BTW, I'm still waiting to find out which one you are in your previous post.

    Yup, it's a cheat, esp if any tongue is involved! Any kind of kiss you would not be "able" to get in front of your signif other, is cheating. We have mutual male friends who give me a peck in front of my husband, missed you, etc... it doesn't make anyone feel uncomfortable. So just think of anything your wife would not think was kewl...and it isn't!!

    Come now nurses - you know what sticklers we are for details. First of all, it depends with WHO. I kissed an old friend of the family who is 75yrs old on the cheek. That is definitely not cheating. It is a sign of endearment. If you kiss someone you think is a hottie and you are in a relationship, then on the cheek, nose, eyebrow, it's all cheating. WHERE is a biggie. On the lips mucous membrane to mucous membrane I think that is serious business. Especially if your eyes are closed. I guess it could be a cultural thing too. If you are Ukrainian and over 50 I think you kiss everyone, even your neighbours dog. If you are greek, I think they are an affectionate bunch too. etc. etc. I guess the big word is INTENT. Why doest thou kisseth thateth personeth. It's all interpretation.My lips are sealed.

    Just for arguments sake lets say, make out session, little to no fondling, h/swmbo has no idea. One time deal, lets say a co worker or a "freind" perhaps.

    In my book, kissing a member of the opposite sex or same sex if you are a homosexual and you are married well sorry kewl as far as I am concerned that is cheating!!!! I know I would not appreciate it if my husband was in a hot and heavy make-out session with a female who is not ME!!!!
