"Having a wandering eye isn’t the same as cheating. It seems healthy to be attracted to others and look at others and enjoy their beauty. The idea of monogamy to me is that you’re making a promise not to have intimate physical relations with someone else; it doesn’t mean you turn off your attraction to others or deny your human sexual nature. Enjoy the power of sexual attraction and use it to energize your other pursuits in life. You can also use it to energize your promise to the person you’re monogamous with. You’re giving your word to that person and to yourself. Going against your word doesn’t just hurt them — it also hurts you. It damages your own integrity and the power of your word. But if you really like having lots of sex with other people, just don’t promise not to."
