It wasn't a break UP, it was a BREAK, meaning they needed some space to sort themselves out and see where they stood. If it was a break UP, they would've said break UP. Ross obviously felt guilty about it, as he was trying to hide it, so he knew he did something wrong. He was just trying to justify it.
Fuck you, Ross.7

You need to accept the responsibility for when you dump someone. What you're saying is that you reject them emotionally and sexually.
You can't have it both ways, what Rachel wanted during that break up was to both reject Ross and punish him, while at the same time lock off any avenue for him to be satisfied either sexually or emotionally.
You can't have it both ways, when you end the relationship you end the commitment to one another.
At the same time Ross couldn't have expected Rachel to necessarily take him back after. While I don't think it's morally wrong to do what he did, it certainly doesn't bode well for your future relationship/friendship.
If you dump someone and then want to be controlling by expecting that person to not go elsewhere for their needs, then you're just an asshole, to be honest.6
