Highlighters go brrrrr

Just corroborating with a teenie weenie bit of evidence:

One of the more interesting facts in Esther Perel’s new book, State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity, comes near the beginning. Since 1990, notes the psychoanalyst and writer, the rate of married women who report they’ve been unfaithful has increased by 40 percent, while the rate among men has remained the same. More women than ever are cheating, she tells us

According Tammy Nelson, a couples therapist and author of When You’re The One Who Cheats, there’s a reason to suspect that women may be not only cheating more, but also getting away with it a lot more often.

Sex therapist Candice Cooper-Lovett agrees with Nelson that women’s ability to hide infidelity is at least somewhat adaptive. “A lot of women in my practice have shared that cheating was something that you take to the grave with you because men can’t handle cheating in the way that women do, or are expected to,” she explains.
