That’s a saucy title isn’t it? A lot of people like to pose the question ‘why do men cheat, why not just break up?’ and I am here to valiantly answer that question by highlighting the obvious benefits of cheating.
I’m not going to go into the moral implications of cheating on your partner and discuss whether it’s right or wrong, so miss me with your moral compass please. I’m simply going to state what I think are some of the benefits of cheating on your girlfriend.
1) It Stops You From Getting Bored Of Your Girlfriend
Having sex with the same person for a really long time can get monotonous. Enjoying a passionate night with someone new can really put the spark back into your relationship. If the sex is good, you may find yourself with a spring in your step. And if the sex is bad, you’ll find yourself appreciating your girlfriend a whole lot more. The guilt and secrecy you have to engage in as a result can also make you feel like a randy secret agent.
2) It Allows You To Embrace Your Natural Instincts
Humans are not meant to be monogamous creatures, it isn’t natural. Society has told us that monogamy is morally correct, but nature tells us something different. The Coolidge effect is a phenomenon seen in mammalian species whereby males (and, to a lesser extent, females) exhibit renewed sexual interest if introduced to new receptive sexual partners. Apparently, only about 3 to 5 percent of mammals are known to form monogamous bonds, so being polygamous or cheating could almost be written off as ‘being human’.
PS – When you use the “I’m just a human” excuse guys, please don’t quote me and say Jay Carteré said it was okay.
3) You Get Sex With Multiple Partners While Still Having Someone To Come Home To
This is probably the most prevalent (and the most obvious) reason why people cheat. Although it includes within it the previous reasons mentioned, it explains why people don’t ‘just break up’. Some individuals desire sex with multiple partners, but also enjoy having a stable consistent partner at home. Maybe it’s someone they really like or want to start a family with, the point is, there’s security. Being single on these roads searching for new females to have sex with can prove tiring and fruitless, why wouldn’t someone want a backup plan?
With that being said, I neither condone nor encourage cheating – polygamy seems like an interesting way of life though. I personally haven’t cheated in any of my past relationships and they’ve all failed, yet I’ve seen many successful relationships that include cheating partners. So according to the facts I have to hand, cheating is healthy for your relationship. Do you agree or disagree? Let’s discuss this juicy topic in the comments below or on Twitter.
