But more people admitting to extramarital affairs shouldn’t overshadow how gender equality has caused “very powerful changes” in views of sexuality, says Ira Reiss, a pioneer in sexual science research and former professor at the University of Minnesota. Behaviors are more spontaneous than attitudes, he says.
