tell her you can't be with someone who so openly talks about "jerking dudes off". If you give her a foot, she'll take a mile
This right here was the perfect answer. It puts her in check on what you expect, and it sets the precedent that if you are not respected she could lose it all.
These two just worded it perfectly.
Another long one from me (sorry to those with short attention spans) but it might help you out.
I can attest from past experiences what Prophecy said about giving and inch and them taking a mile. I dated a girl a few years ago and every once in awhile a co worker would text her. At first I was cool with it, I was secure with myself and the relationship so I said it was fine as long as it was the occasional "how are you" or work related type of thing.
Then they started texting alot, so I got suspicious, checked her phone right in front of her, it was all innocent but getting too friendly for my tastes.I told her no more texting him period and left it at that. A couple weeks passed and I had almost forgotten about the issue then I started to notice that she was leaving her phone in the car when she was at my apartment (what girl puts her phone down, let alone leaves it somewhere?) When I asked her about it she claimed dead battery the first few times and then I asked if I could look at her messages and she got defensive and said no. I knew why and told her to float a brick and that we were done.
Well being young, that didn't last long and we got back together, this time I made it clear, I said if you are willing to throw away 2 years together over this, then just tell me now because if it happens again, we are done so lets not waste each other's time. She cried, admitted that she was wrong and promised to stop. Long story short, it all worked out in the end and we are now married with 4 kids.......
Oh wait no, a couple months later she left her email wide open on my computer, it was full of flirty emails between the two, very recent ones and she never actually stopped talking to him....like at all. I read only a couple of them before I was so mad that I was considering burning down a church full of orphans. I was pondering on how to dump her in the most soul crushing way possible and then it dawned on me, yeah she was a bitch but it was my fault for letting her get away with it for so long. So I calmed down and noticed that she pretty much lived at my place so I put all of her shit in a big box, hopped in my car, drove to her apartment and set the box on her front step. She must have saw me through the window because she came out as I was walking away. She looked down at the box of her stuff and asked what was going on and that she didn't understand. I calmly said "check your email, but you will probably have to wait for me to log you off of my computer first" The look on her face was priceless. Never talked to her again. Found out a few years later that she was married (no not to the co-worker) but that they were getting divorced because she cheated on her husband. Needless to say I just smiled and sighed thankful for the bullet I dodged.
If I can give you any real advice it would be to not constantly check up on her, her phone, try to creep her facebook/emails. It will just drive you insane and cause you a bunch of stress and strain your relationship. I think you should give her another chance but you can either trust someone or you can't. If it comes to the point where you don't think you can trust her, its time to cut ties.
