Is it because HE is insecure or because he feels the woman he is with is insecure?

Depends. Could be he is just one of those assholes in which case it has nothing to do with her and the relationship he just tries to get sex when ever he thinks he can get it, I would say it has more to do with being apathetic to how it affects others. It could be that he is not getting what he needs from his relationship i. e. if its been a year without sex, which men need to feel intimacy and loved and appreciated, then he may stray outside of the relationship to get it because he loves the girl but he needs that intimacy which she isn't providing for him. So I would say it depends on the situation and the person in question.1

We're not getting the 3 things we need from our woman: Food, nookie, no nagging. If we're getting all of those, no reason to cheat and the risk is minimized.1
It's not usually because of insecurity. Guys cheat because they are emotionally unsatisfied, and sex usually plays a big role in that. Most women don't understand how important sex is in a man's emotional health.0

Cheating is never about the person who is betrayed.
It's a super selfish thing. Usually caused by them not knowing who they are, what they want, or why they are unhappy.
Yes there are situations where they feel rejected by their partner for one reason or another, but that didn't change that it's them going out and self soothing rather than addressing the issues at home.1
Cheating has no rules. Something is missing that’s all. It’s not to hurt the other person.0
