Agreed! I only heard of the term a week ago or so on this very board, and it was from a woman who was insisting that her husband wasn't allowed to watch porn because she didn't feel any compersion from it. WTF?! So... okay, the concept has a time and a place, people.

Now that the term has been defined for me better on this thread, I realize that I have felt compersion. I've thought, about my husband's conquest: "Good for you, honey! I knew you could do it! Go team!"

A pretty good feeling.
