Re: Infidelity Percentages
My observations may not reflect a larger reality, but very few men I know have ever been to a sex worker. Sub-single digit percentage. I know one whose dad took him to lose his virginity, a European family in the USA. Several combat vets who while on leave visited brothels.
Back when I had an office job with a fair amount of travel, there were frequently a variety of different coworkers along. The most I ever saw was men going to strip clubs and stuffing dollar bills in a g-string. No lap dances, VIP room (blowjobs), or anything else physical. No hookers, no picking up women in a bar. Lots of blowing off steam with drinking at the strip clubs or bars. Lots of expensive meals on the expense account.
The affairs I was aware of were all office coworker situations except for one neighbor who had a cocaine/hooker problem.
Obviously there would be affairs I never became aware of. Still I would say the percentage of disloyal husbands is not very high. I would estimate of all the men I know, the % of cheaters (PA) is single digits from what I am aware of. Certainly nowhere near the 80% the talkshow suggested. That's in my circles. I can see how it would be higher in other circles, affecting the overall numbers.
I am aware of far more wives who have cheated than husbands.
EA would be a different story, especially depending on the definition of EA. Lots of people develop little crushes or lusts. They may even engage in light flirting. There is a lot of grey zone there. Most men (and women) probably go through something like that but never take action on it. Most men also aren't going to get involved in a non-sexual love affair for very long without either taking it physical or ending it. EA statistics would be very difficult to even estimate imho.
