“If you're trying to understand why a couple is having trouble conceiving," Sirot said, "then you need to be collecting ejaculate in a scenario that is as similar as possible to their actual conception attempt.You can't put them in an entirely different situation and assume the ejaculate you get is the same they will get when they're having sex with their partners.”
It doesn’t mean men are born to cheat
Naturally, the first thing that could come to mind with these findings is that men are instinctively drawn to sleep with other women. We admit it, we thought that -- even though it would mean everything that happened in The Affair was just… human nature? Blasphemy.
Rest easy. According to Dr. Sirot, that’s complete and utter BS.
“No, I hate that,” Sirot said. “I have to use my professor speak here, but the only thing we speculated about that is that our results are consistent with the hypothesis that in our evolutionary past men had opportunity for extra-pair populations. It doesn’t mean men are selected to mate with new females, and mate with lots of females, that’s not at all what our results mean.”
