When asked why men tend to succumb to cheating on “Sway’s Universe,” Russell Hornsby responded:

The temptation has always been there and it will always be there.

Cheating and infidelity is as old as the act itself.

And so we can’t deny the human need, you know, for pleasure, you know?…

And, I also think that what happens is oftentimes, it happens now, it happens then, a lot of people, men and women alike, they suffer in silence.

And so when their intimacy needs may not be met properly they seek the need to satisfy it elsewhere.

And I don’t think it’s necessarily the need for the physical act as much as it is the need to be heard.

As much as it is the need to be touched, felt, it’s the look, it’s the feel, it’s the eye contact, it’s those things that I think entice men and women alike to step away from their significant other.

And we’re always talking about communication in our culture, right?…

And I think that part of the lack of intimacy comes from the lack of communication that two people don’t have because of bills, because of family, because of children, all those kinds of things that can wear families down.

And I mean it’s just human nature, you know?…

So, I don’t think that it’s of any malicious intent, if you will, right?…

I think it’s based on a human need that needs to be addressed, and I think it just stems from the need to be heard.
