Are men really more unfaithful than women?

Oh Boy !

So what is the verdict ?

Commonly quoted statistics suggest that more men are unfaithful to their partners than women. But how reliable are the figures and, if it takes two to tango, is it even mathematically possible?

On the face of it, the evidence does not look good for men.

The 2006 American General Social Survey found that nearly twice as many married men as women admitted to having had sexual relations with someone other than their spouse.

The UK’s last major study of sexual behaviour – the 2000 National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal) – found that 15% of men had had “overlapping” relationships in the previous year, but only 9% of women.

  1. turns out women are at least as unfaithful then men, but have decided that some of their extramarital behavior “doesn’t count”. Very self-serving. Thanks for linking my blog to yours
