Sydney, 21 November 2014_Male cheaters from Australia have spoken out, and ranked their partners’ excuses to avoid spending time between the sheets, which range from unbelievable to downright lame.
Victoria Milan – a dating website for attached people looking to cheat – conducted the survey among cheating members from Australia and discovered a common theme.
While the excuses to get out of bedroom shenanigans are varied, there’s a sense of frustration from male respondents as women are unashamedly avoiding sex – something men do not experience from their extra-marital lovers.
Top 5 Bedroom Excuses as given by partners of Australian love cheaters are:
#1 ‘I have to get up early tomorrow’
#2 ‘I am very stressed, it's been a hard day’
#3 ‘I’m watching the movie, let me finish it’
#4 ‘I don’t feel like it right now, let’s do it later’
#5 ‘I have a headache’
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said affairs are often the result of such frustration.
“Sexual rejection in the form of a pitiful excuse can be a real blow to a man’s confidence. If this happens repeatedly, searching for comfort, reassurance and unrestrained bedroom pleasure is obviously going to be his next move – and probably one he won’t regret,” Mr Vedal said.
