  • Not at all. It's a kiss, it's just a job, ultimately it's just for the play, and for nothing more, I imagine. So I wouldn't mind. I wouldn't see it as cheating. Same goes for TV, movies, musicals, music videos.

    Now, if it were something more hardcore, like unsimulated sex, be it live on stage, Pornography, or in a movie (there are some movies out there, outside of Pornography, that have very real, unsimulated sex.) then yeah, I would have much more of a problem with it. I don't imagine my girl would be OK with me having sex with someone else, and I don't think I'd be comfortable the other way around.*

    ( * Threesomes, group sex, CAN be OK, but that's up to the individual couples. Also open or polygamous relationships make it OK, but that's a different topic, altogether, and much like with the former with threesomes and group sex, it's up to the couple. Really though, I'm interpreting your question as though you're talking about two people in a monogamous relationship. )

    All in all, though, Kissing someone in a play, or some other form of performing arts, is not cheating. I don't see it as such. Some might disagree, but they're not me.

  • Technically yes. If you're going to be trying out for parts like that let him know and see what he thinks... If he's fine with it whatever... You are still kissing other people though, so if he pulls some crap like ah I was drunk and kissed this girl at a party, I guess you'll have to let it slide as well...

    • OK, hypothetically if he pulled that crap you'd have to let it slide. Basically you'd be setting the terms of your relationship that it's fine to kiss other people. Some relationships would be fine with that. Some would even be fine with going to swingers parties and banging tons of people in an orgy... Most people don't like to share their partner. So it would be wise to talk about it and set the boundaries of the relationship before doing anything like that.

  • Nope, all's it is, is just two actors/actresses doing a harmless kissing in a scene. Some one may see it as cheating, if their partner never told them about the kissing scene and they found out about it on their own.

  • short answer no, it just depends on what your partner considers cheating. Some p*rn stars are married and still preform without their significant other considering it cheating. So it's a matter of perception thing.

  • Please note that this is only my opinion, though it is a very strong one that I feel is supported by strong fact. Take it as you will.

    Kissing someone in a play is like being in the military: You volunteered for the part, now you have to do your duty. If, in the script, it is stated that two characters must kiss, then it is merely part of the role you play. Regardless of whether you have feelings for the other actor/actress you must kiss them for the show to go on. If you don't have a choice in the matter, there is no way around it, and it is only taking place in the confines of the production, then no. It is not cheating. Now, if you were to go with the other actor/actress and "practice kissing," that would be debatable. But it is not a choice.

    I feel qualified to answer this based on my experience in theater productions, I am a thespian, and I have been in similar situations as this one. I hope my answer helped you.

  • No.

    I still wouldn't want my girl doing it, though.

    Might as well be a p*rn star too as they're "actors."

  • not as long as it's just acting. It's really a matter of honor... if you kiss them with absolutely no meaning and only because you have to, it's no problem, as long as you aren't hiding it from your boy/girlfriend. If you secretly enjoy the kiss and actually meant it/dwelt on it/whatever, I think that's cheating.

  • It's not cheating, it's just something that comes with the job. But if they really have something going on, then that would be cheating.

  • No, I wouldn't consider that cheating. I did some acting in high school and I know that kissing scenes aren't a big deal.

  • Not at all. It's part of the job and it's acting, not real life. However, you should tell your partner about it.

  • No. I've been doing musical theater for almost my entire life and I started getting kissing roles in high school. It really doesn't mean anything. Your director tells you exactly how to make it aesthetically pleasing to the audience -- that's the objective. It doesn't even feel that good because they're more concerned with making it pretty than making it fun. I remember when I was a sophomore I had to kiss a girl's boyfriend in a play and the bitch was totally nasty to me before, during, and after the show's running dates. She even slapped me after the first showing. Not every stage partner's S.O. has been rude to me, though. Most are pretty understanding. If you're in theater and are doing kissing scenes, don't date someone who's insecure. And if you're insecure, don't date an actor. Or don't date anyone until you learn to be more confident.

  • No because it is only an act. just like artistes they have to perform intimacy acts but that isn't real , it is part of the job requirements

  • No, unless you end up liking that person. If it's a play it's part of the role, just some acting.

    • Well to me cheating is doing something behind your partners back, once you start lying and covering things up then it becomes cheating. Kissing in a play would just be doing your job, no reason to lie to your partner about that!
