Men 'cannot help having wandering eyes'

9th April 2010

Women should not worry that their partners will stray, despite men naturally having a roving eye, an author has argued.

Psychiatrist Louann Brizendine, author of The Male Brain, told Reuters that it is hardwired into men to 'seek out fertile females to mate with', but this should not provide an excuse for infidelity.

Dr Brizendine, who achieved fame with the bestselling The Female Brain, explained that the vast majority of men are able to restrain their wandering instincts when in a loving, committed relationship, but the affairs of a few have given the whole gender a bad name.

'There is the normal range of behaviour and then there is pathological behaviour,' Brizendine told the news provider.

She also highlighted other key differences in the sexes, noting that men tend to express their love and care by offering solutions to their partner's problems - which can frustrate women, as they prefer to see emotional empathy.

Dr Brizendine is the director of the Women's Mood and Hormone Clinic at the University of California and built up the knowledge included in her books by practicing as a physician, psychiatrist and psychopharmacologist for more than 20 years.
