Are you referring to my post? You're kidding, right?

CPG, I liked your story, and I think life often works that way -- we're social animals. If a group of friends I hung out with starting robbing banks, I'd think they were crazy at first, but you know .. hey, I might cover for them here and there. Stick it to the man, right? What have the bankers ever done for us anyway? And then, after a couple of heists went off well, and a couple more buddies joined .. I might think... wow, free money? Really? And they make it look so cool ... and down the rabbit hole we all go, until ... oops, everyone goes down in the end -- looking at 10 to 20.

I'm with Pam on this one ... there is no subsitute for a life well lived. I want to hold my head high and proud when its gray. What would suit me better? Memories of stolen moments with loose women? Or the memories of my children graduating from good schools, going on to have good careers and raising their own fine brood? Perhaps some can have both, but I think it's much harder than many short-sighted hedonists assume. If you're investing your time and energy into affairs, you're not investing it in other places. Play on players .. it's your life -- do what you will with it, but remember there is something to the whole delayed gratification thing.

at all ages and much more frequently than you think.
female cheating is 25% in marriage.
50% of evil comes with male hardware the rest is pretty much dismissed.

Yes women like to tar and feather men with that stereotype, yet the men are having sex with someone.

There are just as many skanky women out there as men.

Interestingly of the direct sexual propositions I have got from women I am not in a relationship with, most have been from married women. Mostly I think what it comes down to is that old childish thing of getting away with being naughty. Not to mention self esteem issues and a basic lack of morality.

Yep. Here's the double standard that you see often argued:

If a man cheats, it's because he's a selfish pig who is a slave to his own pecker. He is a pathetic betrayer of his family and scum of the earth.

If a woman cheats, it's because her husband didn't give her the love, support, time and appreciation she needed. She is sad but, in many ways, understandable.

I think the tradition of the man being older does not make biological sense...They die earlier, their sex drive peaks earlier...

Anyway, one reason is some men in their 40s are less keen on sex, and also the woman might be bored of their husband or be unsatisfied by him. Relationship issues will also come into the picture...
At 42 I must be a oddity then because it is still on my mind and spirit as much as it was 20 years ago.

I meant some...some men seem to keep on going until they shoot through...sometimes while they're shooting through! I won't be surprised if we hear that's the way Hugh Hefner goes .

I'm not sure but it is usually when women get sick of their annoying uninvolved selfish husbands.
