Married women seek out sex

This is no surprise to me and probably not any of our lifestyle friends but it is supposedly news on the Huffington Post:

Apparently, unfaithful wives want to have their cake and eat it too. According to a new study, women who cheat on their husbands are looking for passion and sex, but they have no desire to end their marriages.

Anderson found that 67 percent of these married ladies were specifically looking for more “romantic passion,” aka sex. None wanted to actually leave their husbands and most even painted their clueless spouses in a positive light.

If these women were fulfilled emotionally, why the romantic ennui? “Our results reflect not marital disharmony, but the sexual monotony that is a social fact of the nature of long-term monogamous relationships,” Anderson said in a statement. “The most predictable thing about a relationship is that, the longer it progresses, the quality and the frequency of sex between the couple will fade. This is because we get used to and bored of the same body.”

And what does the author say about this study? She struggles to find exceptions and alternatives to having other sex partners.

The data is there. Why not just accept the facts, relax, stop being a prude, and have some fun in your life?
