Why men cheat? This is an age-less question that causes a stir with both sexes. Is cheating wrong? Yes, regardless if you're a man or a woman but we still ask why. So we asked men to share with us why some of them cheat and this is what they had to share!1. They know they can get away with it
You have allowed this man to get away with cheating and misbehavior and therefore he thinks he's invincible. Getting away with something is almost a self-gratifying experience that often drives them to do it again and again.
2. Opportunity presented itself
Men by nature are very testosterone-driven creatures who are very visual and enjoy the hunt and the reward they get from successfully hunting. Men are usually doing the pursuing so when a woman takes charge and offers him sex he will be flattered and find it sexy and therefore sleep with the woman, enjoy what was presented to him.
Men consider themselves the alpha male. Men like their ego stroked. Some feel one woman is not enough. They get sex outside and they feel like king of the jungle; other women on the street gives them sex, wow they think! Often, some men have to compensate for something and cheating allows that. It boosts their ego and gives them a misappropriated sense of satisfaction.
Fear sabotages and breathes life to those things we don't want. Some men have a fear their partners might leave them so they turn around and do what they fear the most, cheat. When we fear something (being cheated) we feel we are powerless with no control, cheating and undertaking our fear gives us that control.
5. They have no sex life with you
Men enjoy the act of sex and need that satisfaction. When they're not getting sex or the sex is not enjoyable anymore they will venture outside the relationship to get the sex they crave. Or they feel trapped in a monotonous relationship and they seek a new adventure, a new body, a different sex.
6. Sex is taboo, when forbidden it's gratifying
Sex has always been a taboo that's why porn, threesomes or any non-traditional acts of sex are so alluring. We all live with rules and limitations, not having these with sex is gratifying. Anal sex? One of them! Why? Well, it's enjoyable and also because it's almost a forbidden act, not every woman does it.
The thought that the grass may be greener on the other side gets the best of us sometimes. Have you ever been curious about having a threesome? Watching porn? Kissing another woman, why? It's sexy and taboo, we wanna taste & experience it. Men love the forbidden. When a relationship is stale and the sex is as plain as a slice of white bread they get curious about what's out there. Is the grass greener? The unknown is alluring, it's adventurous.
Yes, we know two wrongs don't many it right but when a man's ego has been stomped on sometimes they need it nursed back to health and what better way to feel like the alpha male than by having sex with some woman? When a man has been cheated on that act of dishonesty is often what they want to retaliate with.
Men who are attractive know it. They know what their looks and charms can get them anything and often it's more than one woman. They think they are king of the jungle they have this misappropriated sense of entitlement.
10. They saw other men do it and think it's ok
Yes, this reason alone sounds so ridiculous but it's true. Simple monkey see monkey do is so true. Some men grew up in a home were cheating was allowed, they were lead to be believe it's acceptable and an example of their manhood. If men are surrounded with infidelity they will most likely try it.
