Why We Cheat: Sex and Cheating

Bill Clinton. Tiger Woods. Arnold Schwarzenegger. What do these names have in common? They all cheated on their spouses and were thrust into high profile sex scandals when they got caught. But why did they cheat in the first place? CNN's Brooke Baldwin speaks with the mind behind Torq/Lite Gary Neuman who explains that when men cheat on their spouse it's rarely about sex.

    If the subjects weren't Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods or Arnold Schwarzenegger would anyone even care? No. The spotlight should be on the people who have an interest in damaging people for selfish reasons. What's going on in the perpetrators lives that motivates them to seek out celebrities to destroy. Whether a celebrity or not, its no one's business outside of the couple involved. Third parties need to 'get a life' and mind their own boring business. Everyone has a dark side, even the 'self-proclaimed' heroes. The only difference is that Bill's, Tiger's and Arnold's alleged indiscretions are visible; their prosecutor's dark secrets are still 'dark secrets.' The prosecutor's [self-proclaimed heroes] dark sides are invariably worse than the dark sides of the people they are seeking to expose. The only difference is one is purportedly known, the other is yet to be revealed. Unless of course they are god, Jesus , The Creator or someone with that level of credibility.

    this is a good story,when it was displayed on cnn,my only problem the photos shown by the camera crew or the ones who assembled the photos showing the different races of people who not long ago who were caught or professed they cheated seemed to headline black americans as the front runners of this problem.the politicians photos were shown very quickly and very litlle words told about there cheating,bernie madoff insted of tiger woods face should of been the high light of this,did many lose millions behind tiger woods no but you thought tiger was bernie madoff the way this story was displayed.

    my point is many cheat in all races rich and poor famous and not so famous,cnn go evenly across the board of all races,you did a story sometime back about how many other races dislike black americans i belivev the total was 51% of the other races dislike black americans then you do this story of why we cheat and show many black americans faces first and for a longer period of time on your network but show the white faces of cheating very quickly and use a few words,this propaganda only keeps the image of black americans are not to be trusted or respected by other races.cnn be fair please.

    Very good piece. I have heard Dr. N before and read a few of his pieces on this subject and he continuously attempts to explain that infidelity is less about sex and more about connections. It is very difficult, however to translate this into mainstream because mainstream has become so superficial and incapable of having a mature conversation about what it takes to create healthy relationships.
