This chapter examines the mechanics of how men cheat. It explores the antecedents that lead them to it, both structurally and emotionally. It explains the high rate of cheating found among this population of men (78%) as a product of access to sex. Men in this study live in social spaces that make spur-of-the-moment cheating more likely. Potential sex partners can be met in dorms, classrooms, sporting facilities, university social spaces, clubs, and pubs. These environments provide more opportunity for men to cheat compared to when they were back home, because they are away from adult surveillance and they exist within an alcohol-soaked social culture.
