Ok, this IS a question.
I mean for men now, there is p@rn, provocative pictures on Facebook, Women/girls randomly adding and messaging you on Facebook, on your emails, you got live girls on webcams, advertisements to meet girls online in your area just for hookups, fucbook where you can literally meet people for only one night stands, and so much more...
I just.. despair.. How are they meant to remain faithful when all these are thrown in their faces? The chances for them to cheat and to get away with it are increasing all the time...
And before anyone says it yes I've got trust issues.

Men can always choose to resist and be faithful.
That said, it is harder now. P*rn is everywhere, and as a man I am going to say it IS a problem. P*rn is not an accurate portrayal of women, love, or relationships. It caters to (and preys upon) our more base instincts. Technology to find women and cheat is growing. I don't know what if anything can be done about it.
Women have their own problems in life, but I will fully admit that you are generally in a more vulnerable position on this issue, and it sucks. Women, want and need relationships more than men (at least how youngerer men see it; they do usually grow up), so they are willing to put up with more to get one. On top of that, women feel a greater drive for children, and frankly they need a man for more than just creating them. That means most women are at a disadvantage when it comes to being fulfilled for the things they need. They need a man to help, to be a partner. It sucks to need another to find fulfillment, especially then those others are so sexually tempted and the temptations are all around.
Eventually most men realize they need a partner too, and kids. However, it usually takes longer to get there for them, and meanwhile the women take whomever comes along. And even when the men do grow up and want real relationships, for whatever reason, they still have lapses of sexual desire that often lead to cheating.
I have few answers, but I do have sympathy for women on this. I may sound crazy to say this on this board, but one thing I can think of to help is to advocate for reducing p*rn in your community and society in general. I am not saying take it away from adults who choose that form of entertainment. I am saying we should reduce its prevalence in society and ease of access, especially for teenagers.
Once upon a time you had to sneak a dirty magazine to see a woman's body. Now you can see most of it on prime time TV, and the rest with a click of computer button. I do think this is affecting teenage boys. They are coming away with skewed and inaccurate views of women, sex, and relationships. Give them a chance. Let them grow up before being so subjected to something as strong as sexual stimulation. Somehow society needs to stop thinking it's OK and normal for teens to be into p*rn or sex so much. Sure, we probably all did some experimenting when younger, but it was often not a good idea, and some of us just got lucky we got through it too. Less sex is probably good for teens. Adults can do what they please, but kids are still in their formative years. They are easily shaped by strong emotions, and few are as strong as sex.0
