It’s not just guys, powerful women also more likely to cheat


Arnold Schwarzenegger has a love child (or, more accurately, a lust child) and the head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, is now sitting in a Rikers Island cell charged with sexually assaulting a hotel maid and has admitted to at least one past affair.

Both are more proof, as if we needed more proof, that men, especially powerful men, can’t keep their pants zipped.

That makes a convenient narrative, but what if it’s not gender that leads to scandalous behavior, but power itself? What if powerful women were more likely to engage in illicit sex than their less powerful counterparts, just as powerful men are?
