Poll: Would You Cheat If You Could Get Away with It?

If you could cheat on your committed long-term partner, just once, and it was guaranteed they would never find out, you wouldn’t get an STD or have to deal with an unintended pregnancy, and you’d never see or hear from the fling again, would you?

^ I partially agree with you, G, but that’s because I usually don’t promise women monogamy, so I don’t think it’s cheating. Now that I have promised my lady monogamy, cheating would make me a liar. Sticking your dick in everyone you want is fun, sexy, and thrilling. But lying is not nice. Lying is where most guys go wrong. They promise they WON’T fool around, then they DO. THAT is spineless and cowardly. They don’t have the balls to risk losing a woman by admitting their polyamorous needs.

Cheating IS cowardly. ADMITTING that you’re gonna be boning other women from time to time takes big balls. See the difference? Most people gamble on a “they’ll never find out” scenario. Some of us just live out in the open.

Dear James,

Some wouldn’t feel guilt but actually feel pride, and who are the guilty bunch to judge that this is wrong behaviour?  Having a girlfriend and ‘cheating’ the way the above article mentions does in no way make the indulger an unfit person, a coward as you state or incapable of maintaining a loving relationship with a long term partner/wife/husband till death to him or her part.  Instead the indulger is living the life he/she wants.  Why is that wrong to you and who are you to judge what is right. An opinion is one thing that everyone is entitled to and if thats what yours is then it is respected.  However, Having ones cake and eating it too IMO is smarter than sacrificing/regretting simply because a church or an opinion of your teacher has persuaded you.Cowards are those who don’t have the courage to do what they want in their short lives and go on to let guilt put set their barriers.
As time goes by we become more liberal whether we like it or not. 100 years ago things were not as acceptable as they are today but we progress. Progress is the key word here. Some people catch up later than others but there will be progress and development. Kudos to those who teach their children how to think and  not what to think.

Would be and should be a dream come true for most people. We only live once and the actual act is exactly that; the act of a penis entering a hole (vagina) in order to receive pleasure. (brainscans reveal an orgasm is comparable to a shot of heroin!) It’s nothing more and nothing less. It astonishes me how ppl say they would feel guilty. I would feel guilty if I grew old and was dying and never fulfilled my life. Opportunities like the one mentioned above (no finding out, no std’s) would be a shame to let pass. Feeling guilty for not taking the chance is a better reason to feel guilty for. For males it’s even condoned as healthy and manly and obviously helps the self esteem. Perhaps women would feel guilty as they are biologically wired nesters and the feeling of being slutty would be an uncomfortable burden.

When My Man and I decided to become mongamous (about 4 or 5 years into our relationship) I made him a promise and he made me one. Only me for him, and only him for me. IMO, it’s the same as what marriage vows are supposed to say. We are married, now, but I think the conscious intention of MAKING A PROMISE to each other is stronger than a lot of people’s legal marriages, looking at the cheating rate and divorce rate in this country.

Not that I haven’t been tempted, when that happens, I remove myself from the situation, and make sure I am not in that situation or around that person again. You may not be able to control WHO you are attracted to, BUT you CAN control the situation and what you do to make sure you remain true to your monogamous lover and relationship promises. I am sure My Man has had similar temptations.
It’s just a part of being a sexual being. The temptation is normal, but the ability to say, “No, I love my lover too much to risk his love and our relationship for a fling.” that makes it work.
