Politiker und Seitensprünge

It’s natural for politicians to risk everything for an affair (but only if they’re male)

The question many asked in 1998—“Why on earth would the most powerful man in the world jeopardize his job for an affair with a young woman?“—is, from a Darwinian perspective, a silly one. Betzig’s answer would be: „Why not?“ Men strive to attain political power, consciously or unconsciously, in order to have reproductive access to a larger number of women. Reproductive access to women is the goal, political office but one means. To ask why the President of the United States would have a sexual encounter with a young woman is like asking why someone who worked very hard to earn a large sum of money would then spend it.
