    You're in a conventional relationship, go online and sext on chat, is that cheating or funny?

    so you went online to just joke around and happen to cross paths with a nice person that happens to be looking for sexting. you find it funny. the person is desperate. is it immoral to "help them out" if it's a joke for you and you love your partner and tell him about it later?

    Yes, it is cheating.
    It is a sexual relationship with someone other than your partner, even if you never meet.

    Everyone defines "cheating" in their own way. Some strictly believe if there is no physical sexual contact it's not cheating.
    Others would consider exchanging sexting photo or flirty sexual innuendo text messages as cheating.
    There are two major components to cheating.
    1. Secrecy
    2. Lying directly or by omission to hide activities.
    In order for whatever it is you do not to be considered cheating one's mate/spouse must be fully aware of what is going on and condones it.
    Bottom line if you wouldn't do any sexting with your mate sitting right next to you odds are you know he or she wouldn't approve of it.
    Most relationships begin with a certain amount of flirting, sexual innuendo, and so forth. If one continues engaging in such activities after they're supposedly in an "exclusive relationship" it appears as if they're still "shopping around" or "keeping their options open".
    Such activities should be aimed at your mate to keep the magic alive.

    Unless you and your partner are in an agreed OPEN RELATIONSHIP where you've agreed that sex with other people (whether physical or emotional sexual relations) is OKAY, then yes I would consider it cheating.

    Yes it is cheating. At the moment you start doing so, you are no more honest to your partner.
