“The Doctors” looked into this sexual gray area in an episode last week.

Dr. Travis Stork weighed in with some practical advice for those that choose to indulge: keep it to yourself — “unless it’s a play-out fantasy.”
Trainer Jillian Michaels weighs in with perhaps the most romantic response out of the entire segment: “I worry that if I’m thinking about somebody else, then in a way it’s a form of cheating… when I’ve done that, I’ve been out of love.”
