Default 101 reasons why men cheat

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...609.DTL&nl=fix

Good thing we dont need to! (cheat)

B/c many of those reasons are quite true.

#52 Didn't Jesus fool around? Is that written somewhere? The lost Gospel of Hey Baby, Nice Rack? All those prostitutes and magic and hocus-pocus? I bet he did. Dude could walk on water. Chicks love that.

#63 Actually, the headline of this column is sort of misleading. Men don't cheat. Some men do, and some women do, for all sort of reasons, some of which are actually sort of valid, if you will, and to insist on some ironclad universal rule of absolute unquestioning fidelity is to presume a ridiculous, impossible level of perfection in the human animal and to dismiss the million messy, complicated variants a human love relationship can take.

#64 Oh, just shut the hell up, #63. No one wants to hear your tepid, permissive psychoanalysis. Cheating is wrong. Always and forever. Now let's talk more about drunk jerks and skanks!

Hilarious! Just ask the penis.

I have a beef with #6. "The male libido, generally speaking, far outpaces the female libido and is never really satisfied for more than a day or two, tops."

So, so not true!! I have nevereverever had a partner who out-libidoed me. Ever. Maybe in the first few months, sure, but their libidos always die when mine's gearing up. *sigh*

"Generally speaking" roly.

My libido went thru the roof in my 40s. Im like a teenage boy. I outpace my 21 yr old male lover (but not by much, he's quite the stud).

Whereas none of the women with whom I've been involved have ever matched my libido. My wife knows I'm ready if I'm not ill to the point of wanting to die. I don't even have to be awake, as I have a history of SBS (Sexual Behavior during Sleep).

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

Hee hee! SBS! Yeah, that's me.

I find this idea about women with high sex drives to be extremely interesting. Women I have dated who say that they've never found a man who could keep up... have never been able to keep up with me. I'm thinking, "What, were you dating dead men?"

How many times a day are we talking about here? If it's less than 3 times a day, you're in the "can't keep up" category. If it's 3-5 times a day, it's adequate. I prefer the 5-20 times a day variety!

... or just continuously for days...

When a man cheats, its his fault. When his woman cheats, its still his fault.
