Risk-taking guys 'often have multiple partners'

Condoms could be a top priority for guys who consider themselves risk takers, as new research has suggested these types of fellas are the most likely to bed multiple women.

The study, published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour, showed men who like to play things dangerously - as well as those who are easily aroused - are often prone to cheating on their partners.

According to the investigation, personality characteristics are more relevant for predicting how likely a person is to fornicate outside of a relationship than factors such as religion or education.

Robin Milhausen, a professor and sexual researcher from the University of Guelph's Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition - which aims to promote improved forms of human development in diverse communities - said: "This research shows that demographic variables may not influence decision-making as much as previously thought - that personality matters more, especially for men."
