Kurious Mantalkk: Sex Fidelity and the Evolution of Desire
Traditionally men have been seen as the culprits to breaking the monogamy vows. Until the last few decades, women have not only been expected to maintain sexual fidelity, but have also often been encouraged to look the other way when their partners have cheated instead of breaking-up the family. “It’s hard for a man to be monogamous, they’re not wired that way” or “it’s not in a man’s nature to stay faithful”, have often been reasons cited as to why men cheat so much more often than women. It’s also often said that women cheat for emotional reasons, while men cheat for sexual ones.
Can a man cheat on his partner while still being in love with her? Is it in his biological nature to stray? In this talk we will explore male cheating behaviour. We will discuss the reasons behind male infidelity and examine what happens, not only to his partner, but to him when he cheats in his relationship.
