I hope not otherwise I would be cheating on my fantasy with another fantasy! Think inception only dirtier!
I spend time at my job occasionally daydreaming that I'll find one closer to home and not have to worry about the work commute . . . I haven't acted on that fantasy, though, by going out and finding a new job -- so I don't view that as disloyalty or "cheating on" my employer. It's only common sense for me to wish for and fantasize about a job for which I don't have to drive three hours a day plus work.
For me, as long the sexual fantasy is in the realm of perceptual and hasn't moved to actual physical action . . . then it's not cheating. If it's a fantasy that isn't about or being shared with an SO, though -- either by participation or by telling them about it so as to engage them in your desires -- I view it as certainly an issue that should be addressed. Not because there's a cheating aspect but because there's, in my opinion, a need and desire that's not being met by either party.
No, I don't view it as cheating . . . some fantasies have gotten me through rough times.

Very well said, little lion !Originally Posted by LeananSidhe
I must admit that I recently had a fantasy of sharing some sweet moment with someone I really appreciate in many ways, and then I acted upon it by FedExing it to her ... guess that's a fantasy come true that hopefully won't count as cheating ...
