When you think about people who cheat on their partners, you’re probably thinking of people who are perhaps insecure about themselves and their performance in bed, and probably looking to explore outside of their relationship sadly, it’s not those set of people who are more likely to step out on their partner.
People who have incredible sex life are the ones who are more likely to cheat. Shocker, isn’t it. This wasn’t arrived at by someone coming up with it or licked finger in the air theory. This was revealed in a study that was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the study was carried out at the Florida State University, where they surveyed 233 recently wedded people, they were asked to keep a recorded note about their relationship that was kept for over a three and a half years.
The note contains details that includes long term commitment, if they’ll cheat or not, marital satisfaction, sexual satisfaction and their current situation.
Drawing conclusions from these survey, it becomes clear that the people who have the best kind of sex in the relationship are the most likely to cheat when compared with people with not-so great sex lifestyle.
The result show, “they felt more positive about sex in general and would seek it out regardless of how they felt about their main relationship.”
To be able to judge it they would cheat on their partners, the participants in the study were given several pictures of people who are attractive and other average looking, then asked the men and women to rate how good looking each person is, other than rate the level of attractiveness, they were also observed on how long it took them to rate each picture while they stared.
Those who looked away quickly after glancing at the picture were found out to be least likely to cheat or be unfaithful even though the moments between the people who would be unfaithful and faithful were quite tiny. The people who stare longer are 50 per cent more likely to have sex outside their marriage.
The people who are less likely to cheat also rated the pictures not very attractive compared to those who will cheat, which makes it look like committed people think less of other people other than their partners.
One interesting finding from this is that, women are really hot are more likely to be faithful to her man than a really attractive man. Attractive men are likely to cheat compared those not aesthetically gifted.
The publishers of the study concluded by saying
“With the advent of social media, and thus the increased availability of and access to alternative partners, understanding how people avoid the temptation posed by alternative partners may be more relevant than ever to understanding relationships,”
Does this stir something up for you, this study suggests that beautiful women are less likely to cheat compared to good looking men.
