Cheating’s bad, but scratchy burning genitals are worse. Sadly, science says the former usually leads to the latter.
According to a new study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, sexually unfaithful partners were 27%-35% less likely to use a condom. Perhaps the next finding explained why: their drug and alcohol use was 64% higher. Whoops!
Kind of not a shocker, if you ask us. Once you start rubbing uglies behind your partner’s back, you’re not exactly Miss Manners.
There was a silver lining (sort of). Couples who agreed to an open relationship were more likely to practice safe sex with all their partners. Non-monogomy for the win!
Yelena Shuster hates science for being a total downer sometimes.
