What’s Considered Cheating Depends On Who You Ask
What’s considered cheating, depends on who you ask. The responses between men and women vary.
There is a fine between what individuals consider cheating and what is not. How fine is the line? It depends on who you ask.
A survey asked men and women of different ages what activities qualify as infidelity. Participants were asked about everything from watching porn to sexting. Dancing was thrown in along with flirting and of course full blown sex. It comes as no surprise that 80 to 100% of both men and women of all ages believe intercourse counts as cheating.
Surprisingly 20 to 50% of men aged 35 to 44 believe slow dancing counts as cheating, compared with just 1 to 20% of women in that age group.
And while 50 to 80% of both men and women aged 15 to 24 say a sexually-explicit conversation is cheating, very few older men and women (age 45 to 64) feel the same.
Younger people are more likely than older people to consider dating, sexting, kissing, touching and oral sex infidelity.
Women between ages 35 to 44 are far more likely than men in the same age group to call a secret lunch or a dinner date cheating.
