Thesis 13: The need – perhaps also the appeal – of cheating on your partner(s) to have sex with others is lower in polygamy and polyamorous relationships, as the wish for sex with different partners so commonly found in human nature can be satisfied within your polygamous relation, rather than having to engage with strangers, who are unfamiliar to you and maybe not trustworthy. As a result, people are spared the usual problems associated with cheating.

Added to this I think that the appeal of unfaithfulness always rests only with the cheater, not with the betrayed partner. And is the attraction really to deceive your partner, or is the real stimulus the sexual variety? Would it not be better to be able to experience this without betraying your current partner, the very person with whom you actually want to have a lasting relation based on love and trust (see also Thesis 14)?
