It's a documented fact: a surprising number of men cheat on their partners (see Now, noted psychologist and author Peter Sacco and sex therapist Dr. Debra Laino offer readers the straightforward reasoning and causes for cheating and a discussion on what is sometimes viewed as "acceptable" cheating. Madonna Complex: Why Men Are Wired To Cheat is now available online from Chipmunk Publishing.

"Here's what it looks like sometimes," Sacco says. "She lays on the floor sobbing. She just found out -- he's been cheating. Not once, not thrice, but for years! He says he is sorry. In fact, he says he loves her more than the other. After all, she is his wife and the mother of his kids. With his palms pressed against his forehead, it is his turn to cry, 'I can't help myself!'

"Is it real or is it an excuse? Can sex really, truly be an addiction, out of control, or is it just another cynical card to play when the rich and famous get caught? When is it BS and when is it really worth saving the marriage? After all if sex is an addiction, that makes it an 'illness.' Do you dump someone just because they have a mental illness?"

The Madonna Complex is a self-help book exploring the notion of infidelity and the reasons it is so prevalent in our society. Does pornography, so readily available online, contribute to infidelity and sexless marriages? Sacco has researched the topic thoroughly, finding some men actually get married so they can get a girlfriend on the side. Madonna Complex explains the differences between choice, habit and addiction. Is sex really addictive?
