On this episode of the Sexology podcast, I am accompanied by Beth Luwandi Lofstrom. We have a conversation about infidelity, specifically from the offender perspective. Typically this topic is discussed from the viewpoint of the victim. Today we will be looking at both sides of the equation.
We are quite biased in the way we talk about infidelity. Both partners are hurting, not just one. Beth became interested and more aware of this viewpoint when dealing with couples and individuals and hearing their pain, chaos and confusion. She realized this infidelity is as devastating for the offender as it is for the betrayed partner. Learn more about Beth, justification and denial, identity crisis and infidelity during this episode of the Sexology Podcast.
