Say you want to have sex with your partner and they decline your request. Sure you are upset. But, some people get more upset then others.
Men, who were led to believe that their partners might have been unfaithful, were the most frustrated and angry of all.
The explanation offered? Men are concerned about being cuckold – concerned about raising someone else’s baby (women never have to worry about raising someone else’s baby).
On the other hand, women, and men with faithful partners, have an easier time being shutdown.
Having a partner reject your sexual advances is never fun, but it is a lot more painful for men who think their partner may be cheating.
More evidence that men and women respond differently to the thought of being cheated on by a partner.
