Stronger Sexual Impulses May Explain Why Men Cheat More Than Women

Not stunning news. Although I think the women's reaction would depend on the circumstances, esp. if they are in love.

Shows why societies where women have more equality tend to be more advanced. We can spend more time thinking about things other than sex.

Sep. 21, 2013 — A recently published study strongly suggests men succumb to sexual temptations more than women -- for example, cheating on a partner -- because they experience strong sexual impulses, not because they have weak self-control.

Previous research has shown that men are more likely than women to pursue romantic partners that are "off limits." However, until now, the explanation for this sex difference was largely unexplored.

One possible explanation for this effect is that men experience stronger sexual impulses than women do. A second possibility is that women have better self-control than men. The current study's results support the former explanation and provide new insight into humans' evolutionary origins.
