9780143113294: Lust in Translation: Infidelity from Tokyo to Tennessee

Compared to the citizens of just about every other nation, Americans are the least adept at having affairs, have the most trouble enjoying them, and suffer the most in their aftermath and Pamela Druckerman has the facts to prove it. The journalist's surprising findings include:

  • Russian spouses don't count beach resort flings as infidelity
  • South Africans consider drunkenness an adequate excuse for extramarital sex
  • Japanese businessmen believe, "If you pay, it's not cheating."

Voyeuristic and packed with eyebrow-raising statistics and interviews, Lust in Translation is her funny and fact-filled world tour of infidelity that will give new meaning to the phrase "practicing monogamy."
