Mrs. Cranky recently sent me an article about “Why Men Cheat.”  It came from a love and relationship expert who was responding to a question from a listener.  Her answer was surprising.

This expert, a woman, asserted that men cheat not for sex, but because of a lack of appreciation at home.  They cheat because they are not treated special.  They cheat because they are not acknowledged. 

Very interesting.  It must be true because it comes from a love and relationship expert.  I would have become a love and relationship expert but they did not offer a love and relationship curriculum when I went to College.  I wonder what chapter in the love and relationship book covers “Why Men Cheat?”

Leave it to a woman to take the simplest question about men and make it all about feelings.  She took a question about men and answered it with a female brain.  To back up her position she questioned 30 men on the subject and they agreed with her assertion.

Where did she find 30 men who cheat?  Let me rephrase that…Where did she find 30 men who would admit to cheating?  As an expert on love and relationships she does not understand a very simple fact.  When it comes to sex, MEN LIE!

If you interviewed 100 men on the size of their manhood, you would learn that the average size is a little over seven inches.  When it comes to sex, MEN LIE!  If you ask men why they cheat, you will find it is because their wife doesn’t understand them and they aren’t treated special, and they are not acknowledged.  When it comes to sex, MEN LIE!

Men say this shit, because women believe it.

The real answer is very simple.  Men cheat because:

1.     They are not getting laid enough


2.     Men cheat because they can

A man who has a satisfying sex life at home and travels on a business trip will not look to get laid on that trip…unless he has the chance to get laid.  Then he will cheat.  (Well not your man, but most men.) 

Professional athletes travel, are wealthy, are in shape, are generally attractive, and are surrounded by women looking to score with someone famous and wealthy.  A high percentage of professional athletes cheat.  Is there something about professional athletes that makes a high percentage of them not appreciated, treated special or acknowledged by their wives?  I don’t think so!  They have the opportunity, it is easy, and they cheat.

Why do people make questions about men so complicated?  When you want to know why men cheat, why do people ask a woman?

Oh wait…I forgot…when it comes to sex, MEN LIE!        


  1. Men cheat because biologically they are not designed for monogamy. Back in the caveman days it was crucial for humans to procreate so males copulated often and with whoever was available. Women achieve climaxes slower than men to assure their interest in multiple partners to insure pregnancy. The problem is that we've outgrown our caveman imperatives, but the impulses remain.

  2. Oh, sure, thanks for that.
    You had to tell everyone.

    Here's my rebuttal:
    Men cheat and men lie is not the same as all men cheat and all men lie.

    BTW - shut up, Stephen. Of course impulses and instincts remain.

  3. Oh no...shock, horror! Men cheat and lie? Who knew? My world is shattered. Smiles - A.

  4. Some men cheat because they can. I agree with IT he said it perfectly. Oh and I also tole my man that if he ever went there it better have been worth it because he will be waking up with no penis and cement booties. Ooops did I say that out loud?

  5. So, it sounds like we will never get the answer to this very important question..... Because men lie about sex. Damn! Ask a woman.... she has the wrong, much too feely, answer... And men will never tell the truth. Double Damn!

  6. Women cheat, too. Could be as much as men, but we'd never know that because....

    when a woman cheats, there's a great chance that no one will ever find out. 1) they tend not to brag or tell anyone else about it, 2) they are very good and hiding it, unlike men who - I'm sorry, I'm just going to say it - can be very, very stupid about hiding their tracks. Women are BETTER at lying! Yes, we are! We actually REMEMBER the lies we tell so that when we need to retell it, we get it right the second and third time, too.

    If a woman cheats, it's far more dangerous to the relationship because 1) men - IF they find out - or far less forgiving when it comes to infidelity, and 2) if she cheats, it's more than likely not only for sex, but emotional, too...which is way harder to break away from.

    Men cheat more than women do...or do they? Women don't get caught as often! And they don't admit to it, and rarely tell anyone about it. So how would we ever get an accurate count? I'd be willing to bet that in this day and age the number of women who cheat is catching up to the number of men who cheat.

  7. Funnily enough I was about to wade in with ' because they can!' then I actually read what you had written and saw the same conclusion.

    Men and women cheat because they can and that's the bottom line.

    No excuses
