    Are Men Genetically Programmed to Cheat?

    I am a woman so I'm not sure how a man thinks because.... well, I have a V instead of a P.

    But I don't think men are programed the cheat. I don't believe that, I think that is a cock-out or a reason for them to cheat when they say that. "I can't help it, I'm a guy..." Um, no, you CAN help it you just want to get away with it.

    Sex is tempting for women as much as it is for men, I know men who can hold out a lot longer then women can.

    So my answer is no, I don't think men are genetically programed to cheat, if a man cheats he's just a dick.

    No, they are simply made to fall in love...all the time.

    Cheating in a relationship could be done by men or women. So I don't believe that men are generally programmed to cheat.

    If so then women are equally progranned.  This question is sexist.

    I think this "genetically programmed" argument is just an excuse used for some. As mentioned by others, cheating can be done by both genders, it really is just a matter of choice. Humans don't run on instinct like other creatures. We  actually have reason and it's up to an individual to use that or not

    I don't believe that for a second! I do believe that society has made it excusable for men to cheat.

    No more than women are. It's just a poor excuse to try and get away with something unacceptable. I don't think anyone is programmed to cheat....if someone cheats they don't truly love or respect the person that they're with. Why cheat? Just leave the relationship that you're obviously not happy with and move on.
