We as humans, tend to live in the +60's. At that time, you are bound to cheat on someone.Quote:

^ Back in teh 19th century they had their maids to do that. At least the men. The women had no real (fun) sex till the pill came up. And then they discovered the female organ

we discover there is a book named Karma Sutra.
a book about sexs and relations.

To be literally on topic.
The TC's link just goes to show how unreliable statistics are. Particularly considering they're using the honor system with most, if not all, of the participants.
I'd be willing to bet sexual behavior, particularly styles and techniques are learned or developed through experience. Genetics wouldn't determine the "oral" or thrusting patterns of a human.
- -2 out of 3 women and 3 out of 4 men admit they have sexual thoughts about co-workers.
- -86% of men and 81% of women admit they routinely flirt with the opposite sex.
I don't really see why that is a problem *shrugs* People have thoughts and to be honest, flirting is enjoyable, even if you are in a committed relationship. Pfft and I doubt men would be worried say if their women was jealous of a co-worker's breasts or something... focusing on that could be considered sexual thoughts. (yes I'm nitpicking, but my point is a co-worker could be same sex, and I imagine very few men would object to a female partner having sexual thoughts about other women.)
- Only 46% of men believe that online affairs are adultery. DivorceMag
That one worries me more personally. Perhaps because I have experience with a real online relationship.
Infidelity is rampant yes. *shrugs* relationships are hard, much harder than people expect I think. And the culture nowadays means that people who have extramarital affairs aren't shunned like they had been in the past. Also affairs aren't hidden like they used to be, so I'm not sure that those numbers have gone up as much as we think.
If you're going to have an affair, go all the way. none of this "not really an affair because it's on the internet" or "we didn't ____" Either it's a one time mistake (drunk or had been in an argument or whatever) or it was premeditated and you don't love your partner enough to stay with them anymore. If it was a mistake fess up and beg for forgiveness, if it's not, leave.
Anyhow, those are my humble opinions, I hope my explanation is worthy of what Steal intended for the thread. *huggles Steal* :p
EDIT:: ooh, Steal is a CC mod? Congrats!!!!! hmm might have to stop by more.
I don't think it crosses the line into cheating until a secondary person supplants the spouses emotional or sexual needs. When you start going to someone else to get an emotional or sexual connection (or fix) then you're cheating. Having close new friends online isn't infidelity...
