Why Men Cheat: Science Explains!

Why do men cheat? Turns out it’s not because he’s a “crazed sex poodle.” The authors of Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality say that a wily little hormone called testosterone is the culprit.Authors Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha point out that a man’s testosterone level begins dropping in his 20s, which correlates to less passion for life. Apparently, a man without testosterone coursing through his veins is like Snoop without a blunt! So how do guys inject a little joie de vivre back in their lives? Find some ladies.

“One of the few things that can reliably and immediately revive a man’s sagging testosterone is exposure to a new woman,” the authors wrote. “One researcher found that even a brief chat with an attractive woman raised men’s testosterone levels by 14 percent within minutes.”

So take note, women scorned: it wasn’t love, it was just palliative care. Of course, you could bypass this whole cheating situation entirely and just date a high school boy whose testosterone levels are off the charts. But I didn’t say that. [AOL News]
