Vox Day’s Fidelity Survey results are up. Some interesting nuggets of information:
1. Married, admitted to cheating:
2. Married, betrayed by spouse:
3. Unfaithful who cheated on prior partners before marriage as well:
4. Female infidelity was strongly correlated to lifetime number of sex partners:
1-3 partners: 0% cheated
4-9 partners: 20% cheated
10+ partners: 43% cheated
5. Number of prior sexual partners did not increase a woman’s odds of betrayal by her husband.
6. Male infidelity and being betrayed by one’s wife were both strongly correlated to the male’s lifetime number of sex partners:
1-3 partners: 3% cheated, 14% betrayed
4-9 partners: 12% cheated, 30% betrayed
10-19 partners: 28% cheated, 31% betrayed
20+ partners: 43% cheated, 43% betrayed
7. 35% of the men with 20+ partners were divorced.
Key VD Conclusions:
- “More of the men here than the women have experienced marital infidelity, nearly one quarter, which is unsurprising given a betrayed man will tend to be more inclined to swallow the red pill of Game.”
- “Both male and female cheaters tend to marry cheaters.”
- “The more sexually alpha a man is, the more likely it is that he will be betrayed by his wife. It’s the alphas who are 3x more likely to have an unfaithful wife. Notice that the low N men still have wives that betray them at nearly 5x the rate that they cheat, whereas the Alpha cheat/betrayal ratio is 1.”
- “I was surprised to see there was no link between female N and male betrayal corresponding to the link between male N and female betrayal. It could be due to the smaller number of female responses, of course, or due to the lower likelihood that a high N woman will marry in the first place.”
Additional thoughts from SW:
- The sample size of 232 males and 59 females is nearly twice that of Vox’s previous survey on sexual experience. Thanks to HUS readers who participated in the Fidelity Survey.
- Remember, Alpha Game demographics are significantly different than HUS’. In the first survey, Vox’s readership skewed to mid to late 30s, and the vast majority described themselves as religious. In light of this, the data re partner count and cheating is especially surprising.
- This adds support to the claim that women with partner counts in the double digits are more likely to cheat – nearly half in this group.
- Men with a high number of sexual partners cheat a lot, get cheated on a lot, and get divorced a lot.
Bottom line: Whether it’s the addiction to variety, the habit of frequent partner turnover or personality traits common to those who pursue short-term mating, people with high number counts are clearly less suitable as long-term relationship or marriage partners. Filter them out to dramatically increase your odds of marital fidelity and stability.
