From my point of view, what is curious about this question is that it emphasizes the negative rather than something life affirming and positive.
Just seeing the word WRONG is like stumbling over something. It trips one up.
I am sure that there are couples who are so crazy for each other that it doesn't occur to them to have sexual experiences outside the relationship. But this isn't a negative prohibition. Rather, it is self-sustaining.
Lastly, I think it takes a very 'awake' individual to navigate the currents of sexual desire. Why? It is all too easy to objectify another person, which can lead to destructive mental states like jealousy, possessiveness etc. Compassion for one's self and others, on the other hand, has something of a light touch.
