Why Do Men Cheat? Ask Edmund Hillary

I couldn't help myself honey!

A new study, cited in this article on AOL News, says our old friend testosterone is the cause of male infidelity. You think?

Another incentive cited was the same one that drove Sir Edmund Hillary to climb Mt. Everest: Why do men want Strange? “Because it’s there.”

In short, the excuse (er, reason) middle-aged men get involved with women not their wives is one of my favorites: “I couldn’t help myself.”

[O]ne factor we think deserves more attention is the role of testosterone (T) in middle-aged men’s eroticism. In their twenties, men’s T levels begin a long decline, often experienced as diminished passion and appetite for life. Suppressed T levels are associated with depression, heart attacks, dementia, and overall mortality rates from 88 to 250 percent higher. One of the few things that can reliably and immediately revive a man’s sagging testosterone is exposure to a new woman. One researcher found that even a brief chat with an attractive woman raised men’s testosterone levels by fourteen percent within minutes.

Fourteen percent increase within minutes of a brief chat? They don’t call it The Power of the Pussy for nothing my friends.

As for “depression, heart attacks, dementia and overall mortality rates from 88 to 250 percent higher,” Shit, I might as well kill myself right now!

Or find a new woman.

How you doin’? Want to help me with a study I’m conducting?

  1. POP! I think we had a discussion of this nature – proof is in!! No need to kill yourself or shorten your mortality rate – I’m sure you “T” is just fine! A little personal note to the editor!
