No. Feelings are feelings. I believe it's naive for people to insist on sex with no feelings of emotional closeness to result.
As always, you can't help your feelings. It's how you act on them that counts. In your case, you didn't try to hide them, and acted responsibly. What more can a partner ask for?
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
