2. Ego, which of course leads to sex. A man’s ego is very fragile so if you don’t feed it regularly with plenty of compliments and praise and he gets it from someone else, what do you think he’s going to do? Screw her brains out, if he can.
3. Emotional connection that he is not getting at home. That could be any kind of emotional gratification from having someone listen to him, nurture him, dominate him, baby him or just make him feel good about himself when he is with you.
We all have our own boundaries and if we don’t share those with our lover then we can’t blame them when they overstep them.
