Yes, my husband pays for sex, I am disabled and can't have penetrative sex with him and find giving oral sex sickening so I am happy to let him do this, he has my concent and I have met the woman he sees and she is a really nice person, he is the only person she sees and it also helps her as her marriage is on the rocks and the small amount of money he gives her helps her out but she also enjoys the sex.

I am going to answer a different questions, but one that is perhaps more important.

The reason has to do with what cheating on a spouse really means and the statement that paid escort sex has no emotional connection.

The question I am going to answer is if a husband paid an escort or a stripper, is that a good reason for a wife to divorce the husband?

I would agree with invictus that it depends.

As has been pointed out paying a stripper, even if he gets a lap dance and lusts after her, may not be something someone wants to break up a marriage for, if you have children and if it is a rare thing. Would it be better if the wife gave her H a lap dance or twerked for him when the kids were asleep? Yes. Would paying a stripper to give him a BJ or go out to a car in the parking lot for a quickie be grounds for divorce? Possibly, but then again it might be repairable with proper remorse, counseling and changed behavior.

Now as to the escort. Again, I think that this is also situational for the couple. Just prior to my post we had a woman who due to illness encouraged her husband to pay for certain oral sex as she was medically and emotionally unable to meet his sex needs.

Having said that I would also say, that I have seen a number of stories on the number of escorts who find that men would rather pay them to talk to them, than to have sex with them. If that is the case I see little difference in talking to an escort or a marriage counselor, as long as there is no emotional attachment.

Now getting to paying for sex with an escort, that really depends on the reasons. One of the things I learned in my sex starved marriage is that lack of sex between a husband and wife is often partially the responsibility of both partners. That was a hard lesson for me to learn. I didn't for quite a while realize that I was a big part of why my wife would not have sex with me and had emotionally checked out of our marriage.

I think that unprotected sex, emotional involvement, improperly spending family money, denying sex to a spouse, and sex outside of marriage can (but don't have to be) grounds for divorce. It really depends on the two people.

It amazes me what some women (and husbands) are willing to put up with from a wayward spouse and still want to try to save the marriage. However, having been in a Sex Starved Marriage and the one who was looking at a future life of celibacy and yet committed himself to changing himself and fighting to save my marriage, I can understand the desire and benefit of reconciling with a spouse. Because of that, I really think that whether paying for strippers or escorts is grounds for divorce depends a lot on what happened, why it happened and the couple and their situation.

Good luck and don't be the one to tell your friend. If you feel compelled to tell your H to tell the man to knock it off and get him and his wife to a good marriage counselor before he destroys his marriage.

P.S. My sex starved marriage had nothing to do with an infidelity on either of our parts. We just emotionally drifted apart. My wife then emotionally hurt me whenever we had sex to regain her emotional distance. Ultimately that pain conditioned us to not have sex. In retrospect each and every day of our marriage we told each other that we loved our spouse, but just not in (Chapman) love languages that the other could hear or understand.

I split the OP from an old thread dating back to 2010.

So she is cheating on her husband and you guys are supporting it? I understand the disable thing but couldn't he find someone not in a relationship?

Even if I don't get likes for it, I'm still going to say it.

I split the crust from old bread so that I can chew over it.

In this post with both partners in a sexless marriage, they were OK with one going to an escort, who am I to say no.

Or course, protection must be used. In this case, I suspect it is not.

As far as emotional attachment? The husband goes to the same women for relief.

He enjoys it, the escort enjoys it. Ah, that raises a Red Flag. Both enjoy each other in bed. They have bonded. Now it is an EA and cash for ash.

OP's husband enjoys it, OW enjoys the sex and gladly takes the money. The money is a ruse. She uses the money to rationalize any of her guilt away. I suspect, she would do it for nothing, if push came to shove...and he did at least 20 minutes of pushing and shoving before he arrived or better put, before he came.

OW enjoys the money, enjoys the sex, the brief companionship, and likely the orgasm, the sexual relief. She too, feels wanted.

OW enjoys the sex, enjoys the money, OP's WH enjoys the sex and intimacy, OP, enjoys the fact that her husband is not pawing all over her.

OW enjoys the sex and money. OW is married with children, another Red Flag.

Does the other women's husband know of this arrangement? Do her children know of the arrangement? Do her in-laws know of this arrangement?

One couple, OP and her husband are delighted. The other couple has only a 50% approval rating. Am I correct on this point? I know the OW's children and family do not know. How embarrassing it would be to find out their mommy was a prostitute.

OK, I understand why a really old thread should not be continued for something like 6 or 7 years with that much of a gap in the middle. Once again, I clicked on an interesting recent discussion and added to the discussion without checking the date of the posts. I did read them from the beginning, but I need to pay more attention to the dates.

I am unsure if I am going to do something I shouldn't, and if I do as the moderator to delete my comment.

I think that some of the prior comments from 2010 are relevant as at a minimum I reference Invictus comment.

As such could a link be included to the earlier portion of the thread that served as the basis of this discussion? Is paying for sex or strippers cheating?

thank you.

YAH

P.S. my heart goes out to both the woman whose recent posting brought me to this tread and to her husband. I am not sure that I would have the strength of will to do what she and her husband have compromised on, if the tables were turned on my wife and myself. Having said that, I do believe that all things in marriage are about compromises that both the husband and wife can live with. However, I do agree that there shouldn't be any emotional attachment and the husband should have found someone who was not married.

Re: Is paying for sex or strippers cheating?

Jeez, some people have interesting/depressing lives. Disabled wife that can't have sex and refuses to take care of your needs? Damn. But who am I to judge, maybe I'm the crazy one.


I'll just leave this here:

Re: Is paying for sex or strippers cheating?

This is wrong on multiple levels. First of, yes, it is cheating, not only paying for the act is wrong but seeing someone who herself is is a relationship where her husband knows nothing about it is wrong. I'm sure that something other than this could be worked out.

Re: Is paying for sex or strippers cheating?

Well, technically it is not cheating because YOU allowed it for whatever reason. It's an agreement. One I hope he doesn't break by falling for the sexual release partner.

You may want to double think just how grossed out you really are about satisfying your spouse orally. Are you gross out enough to maybe loosing the marriage all together?

Your life and your choices. Every choice has consequences. Involving a third party into a marriage is inviting trouble sooner rather than later.

Good things come to those who wait...greater things come to those who get off their a$$ and do anything to make it happen.

Anything done with the consent of the couple is not cheating.

Re: Is paying for sex or strippers cheating?

This is your choice, so if you agree, its not cheating. Its unfortunate that you find providing oral sex so awful that you would rather him seek it somewhere else. It is however up to you.

Re: Is paying for sex or strippers cheating?

I would end my marriage over this, not acceptable ever. MrH associates emotion with sex far more than I do but if he cheated my emotional boiler would burst.

Then again I know he needs sex for sex sake but also to keep and strengthen the emotional bond. I am more inclined to have sex for the sake of it.

Re: Is paying for sex or strippers cheating?

Its adultery and wrong. Even if my husband could never have sex again there is no way I would do this to him. Sex should be for the couple only, there are things that can be worked out.I made promises to be faithful and I don't intend to break them.
Adultery always ends badly.

Different people view different things as "sex".
