And let’s face it, our societal distaste and astonishment over this particular activity may be a bit... (Sex outside a primary relationship, if the relationship is “open” and the rules are followed, does not qualify as cheating.) Interestingly, the reasons men and women engage in relationship infidelity are often quite different, with each gender’s motivations generally paralleling our basic understanding of male and female sexuality.In short, women are usually interested in sex that includes (or at least hints at) some sort of emotional or relationship connection, while men are typically seeking a purely objectified sexual experience.Is it because I'm pathetic, helpless in my current state, completely dependent on her? Do I do something for her that her husband and son can't do? As the days pass and I continue to heal, my body knitting itself back together, I begin to allow myself to think that she has.” ― Mohsin Hamid, “He spent the next weeks blocking scenes of the bureaucrat fucking his wife. He imagined her making noises she never made for him and feeling pleasures he could never provide because the bureaucrat was a man, and he was not a man. And when she sucks his penis, because she must, what is he doing? Not acting on that natural impulse to want to mate with a viable mating partner requires a conscious decision.
Sex was more of an afterthought than something that drove our dynamic.He should be telling her, with the warmth of her body warming his, that his second wife had confessed to greater sexual pleasure when she remembered that she was deceiving him.” ― William Trevor “In a sudden and soundless eruption, as if he has fallen into a waking dream, a stream of images pours down, images of women he has known on two continents, some from so far away in time that he barely recognizes them.Like leaves blown on the wind, pell-mell, they pass before him.“Was it necessary to tell me that you wanted nothing in the world but me? Oh, my dear, it's rather hard to take quite literally the things a man says when he's in love with you.'Didn't you mean them? Somerset Maugham, “Women writers make for rewarding (and efficient) lovers. I'll kill him if he is.” ― Jonathan Safran Foer, “Being faithful and monogamous is not natural for human beings. Even when it was only a fleeting thought and we didn't act on it.They are clever liars to fathers and husbands; yet they never hold their tongues too long, nor keep ardent typing fingers still.” ― Roman Payne, tags: 666, affairs, attraction, breakup, fact, fake-friends, forever, humor, inclination, infatuation, love, love-affair, man, men, michael-bassey-johnson, relationship, sacrifice, serious-love, six-six-six, truth “And I ask myself what it is about me that makes this wonderful, beautiful woman return. In the grass of the yard of their new and immense house. I know this is a silly thought, a thought that will only bring me pain, but I can't free myself of it. Every time we acknowledge that someone of the opposite sex is "attractive" or "sexy" we are doing nothing other than pointing out that they would be a suitable mate.By the time we got married in 2008, we were barely having sex at all, and we weren’t talking about it. But our problem was not that we craved a voyeuristic adventure; I wanted sexual intimacy that Ryan was unable to provide.
