6 Scientific Facts About Cheating That Will Surprise You

October 06, 2015 3 min read

There is a broad spectrum of what people count as infidelity. Some people believe that emotional affairs are equal to or worse than physical ones, while others believe cheating can only occur when there is a physical act taking place. No matter your personal stance on cheating, here are 6 facts about getting caught in the act that may shock you: why people cheat relationships #1 Wednesday Is The Most Popular Day To Cheat One would think that a wild Friday night would be the most popular time for an affair to take place, but it turns out that hump day trumps all. According to the results from 172,000 interviews conducted through the notorious dating site Ashley Madison, people cheat predominately on Wednesdays between the hours of 5 and 7 pm. So if you're wondering why your partner is so busy midweek after a long day at the office, it might be best to check in with them. #2 Rich People Cheat More It's true that the more money someone has, the more likely they will feel entitled to be able to do whatever they please. This includes infidelity. A study by the University of Washington found that those who make upwards of $75,000 annually are 1.5 times more likely to have an affair, and that percentage increases with income. Those who make under $30,000 are more faithful to their spouses and partners. Subsequently, those with a lower education level were less likely to stray than those of a higher academic standing. High school dropouts showed to be 1.75 times less likely to cheat than those who finished high school and college. The study did not follow those who had a lower income and than received a startlingly raise or came into money, which would have been an enlightening perspective. #3 Women Are More Likely To Cheat When Ovulating When you're getting all those fertile feelings, you're more inclined to stray. UCLA and the University of New Mexico conducted studies that proved ladies tend to be more turned on by men who are not their partners when they are at a certain point in their cycle. This doesn't mean they physically act on it, but they may find themselves having daydreams about movie stars, the gardener or the hot guy in line at the coffee shop more often. It is biology that has us wearing brighter, more feminine colours, acting more flirtatious and splashing on some seductive perfume when we're ovulating. It can be subconscious, but it happens. #4 Some People Are Genetically Predisposed Cheaters Not an excuse to go and get busy with someone else, but Binghamton University discovered that the DRD4 gene is present in those who are more apt to stray. This gene is the dopamine receptor or "thrill seeking" gene and it is also linked to gambling and drug and alcohol abuse. Half of the population has this gene in them, but societal conditions and lifestyle choices are what triggers it to activate. We can also blame our parents, because those with this gene who witness infidelity in a familial environment are 73% more likely to commit the crime themselves. #5 Women Are The Best At Not Getting Caught That's right boys! It may not be something to brag about, but us ladies are better at keeping secrets than the guys are. It all comes down to hormones. Men have raging testosterone levels when they cheat, and this can leave them feeling overly confident about their business and that's when they tend to slip up. Women rely on the fact that their estrogen levels rise and fall within the month, so they don't run on a surge of hormones all the time. Women tend to think more longterm about their affairs and plan things accordingly. We're just generally more organized and cautious, it's in our nature. #6 The Majority Of Men Cheat With Someone Less Attractive Than Their Partner It's not about your partner finding someone more good looking, younger or who has a better bod than you! Out of 4,000 men surveyed by dating site Victoria Milan (Ashley Madison's half sister?) only a quarter of dudes said that the person they cheated with was hotter than their current partner. Things are different for women though. 50% of cheating wives claim that the person they cheated with was better looking and better in bed than their current partner. And as for why people cheat in the first place? According to the survey, people cheat because they find a person who is a better listener and who is more understanding than their current partner. It doesn't come down to a matter of making love, but rather communication. Do you agree with these findings? Share your thoughts on infidelity with us! Source: Bustle Do you follow us on Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
