If hubby gets a happy ending massage, is it cheating?
Infidelity comes in many guises. And it often goes unnoticed. Even the most seemingly harmless acts can turn into something that damages even the most solid relationships, like: flirty texts to a friend, or being touchy with a co-worker.
Then there is the more overt kind: like hiring a person to perform sexual services.
The happy ending massage is usually subtly advertised as "extra services" in various massage parlors and spas. It is when, after the regular massage, the masseuse performs a sexual act with the intent to fully "satisfy" a client.
Recently, news started circulating that international Pop star Taylor Swift had broken up with boyfriend, DJ Calvin Harris after he availed of "extra services" at a Thai Massage parlor.
The rumors soon fizzled out. Harris has recently threatened to file a defamation suit against an online tabloid which first released the story.

Here are some of their answers:
"For me, any action that a husband does without the knowledge of his wife because he knows those actions will hurt her, is considered cheating."
"Oo naman! Why need pa ng 'happy ending'? Hindi ba siya happy sa wife niya?"
"Yes, it's cheating. The thought of my husband getting it on with someone else infuriates me. What's mine is mine, and anything even remotely suggesting emotional and/or physical cheating on his part is a deal-breaker."
We totalled all the responses and we got: 100% 'Yes'.
