Nigerian women are the most unfaithful -Durex

Survey shows that 62 percent admitted to cheating on spouses

A survey conducted by condom manufacturer, Durex, in which 29,000 people in 36 countries were interviewed has ranked Nigerian women as the most unfaithful in the world.

According to the survey, Thailand men are the most unfaithful in the world, with 54 percent of them admitting to cheating on their spouses.

South Korea came in second with 34 percent, while Malaysia ranked number three with 33 percent.

The survey revealed that the top two countries with cheating women are Nigeria, with 62 percent, and Thailand, 59 percent.

39 percent of Malaysian women also confessed to having betrayed their partners. Russian women came fourth at 33 percent while Singaporeans are fifth at 19 percent. 



i agree with durex with the following points...
1. nigerian women blame men for their mistakes.women who are suppose to love and support their husbands are busy fighting and criticizing them. Use relationship for instance,a girl of 18 is as wise to date a man of 30 while a man of 18 is even afraid to talk to a womna of 30years old in Nigeria. The 18 years girl even goes to church more than the her male mates yet her secret stories can blow a male brain when shared.
2. nigerian women are liabilities so cheating is always an option to make ends meet. Millions of homes today always have fathers doing all the provision and work while the wife is free at home,babysitting if she is actually pregnant if work until her husband comes back.most women even have nannies and house help that do all the work so what do they now do? Watch movies and when watching movies get bory...cheating gradually sets in.
3. Until Nigerian women learn to show respect,change their attitude and appreciate their men...they will never learn from their mistakes. Many Nigerian women are not loving...they are fighting...they are not enjoying marriage rather they are enduring marriage and the reason is simple. A girl starts sleeping around as early as 16 and at 20s , its expected that she is in the university and so she has some freedom while living in the hostel, she will sex her life off and immediately she graduates and gets into her 30s...she starts hurrying and begging for who to marry and unfortunately ends up with a slut like why complain? Women in nigeria meet good men everyday but they always discard them especially when such men approach them at their early life. nigerian women are natural cheats and they tend to even get worse in marriage these days.if i am lying as yourself if your husband is the tenth person to have known you before and after you knew him, were you faithful to him till marriage? And after marriage what makes you think you wont continue doing what you use to do at his back?and pretend like you are most righteous? I believe the statistics because i am a nigerian,born and breed here and i know women in nigerian no longer women but men in disguise seeking for superiority and supremacy over any little male or gender issues that put them on check but may God have mercy on us

I have read the first place is for Ghana the second for Thailand , nothing said about Nigeria.

Nigeria = scam

Why are we all living in denial? I am a Nigerian woman with Nigerian friends (married and single)and we all live here.

I know too many married women who are cheating on their husbands, and also know too many married and single men who are dating married women. I also know a couple of married women that ask my male friends out(whether they accept or not is another story).

These women even call in on Sharing Life Issues to share their problems; we read in the dailies how pastors do stuff with married women every now and then, so WHO IS REALLY FOOLING WHO?

For all those defending, is the argument the 62% of cheating wives, or is the argument that NIGERIAN WIVES DONT CHEAT? If you agree that they cheat, then you can make your own suggestions (or carry out independent surveys) on the percentage. If you say they do not cheat at all, THEN YOU LIE!!!

Nigerian men cheat ten times more than Nigerian women.

Nigerian women only cheat in self defence.:)

"nigerian women only cheat in self defence" it is like a thief saying he he became a robber because he was once robbed. you will never cheat if it is njot in you to cheat instead, you will either fight your husband or his illicit partner or fightn them both, never to indulge in an illicit affair in return. any woman that cheats, because she is basically unfaithful nad all that realiation crap is just an excuse to pasify her conscience and feelings of guilt. Look at your ugly agaracha mouth; ashewo oshi, oloshi, oloriburuku woman. ASHEWOOOO!

ok let check

Out of the 29,000 how many where Nigerian? The survey is nonsense. Our women are better that.

Nigerian Women ( and Men) cheat . its a FACT. I don't know why people are so shocked. most girls in Nigeria cheat .. for a variety of reasons. as a people we are generally dishonest. our politicians steal money as a hobby. and everyone is shocked that women cheat? please, most men cheat and most women accept it. i have heard women say things like 'what can I do' or 'let him get it out of his system' . this is normal for most people most men get caught, many of them even have children with other women and the women DON'T leave them. so we expect that the women don't cheat? hahaha! that is pathetically naive. I could have told you this without a survey. many girls in relationships sleep around with men for big pockets others just sleep around because the have been messed around so many times and many are just sluts. for whatever reason they are cheats!!! deal with it! this continues into marriage. i don't know about everyone else but almost everyone i know has had an affair at least once. i know ive been with a few women who were having "problems" in their relationship .. anyway this is a lost cause i just felt the need to vent ..

hmmmmmm, i don't believe this report and at the same time can't dispute it, only God knows the truth.

....just as they tell us that we are the most corrupt..I've lived in the USA and the UK and dated Nigerian and Non-Nigerian women and I can categorically say this...Nigerian women are far more honest...I'D STILL CHOOSE MY NIGERIAN WOMEN OVER NON-NIGERIAN ANY DAY!

Please can someone send me the survey document that explicitly states this using the word 'unfaithful' to qualify Nigerian women. Please send me link to the document on durex's website.

This survey is baseless!! Nigerian cheating more than American women? Now that is NEWS to my ears.

Whoever did this survey is a yellow monkey! What about american women, the french, germans, & kenyans?

The survey is bias beyond any human comprehension! Forget about Durex, they are as fake as their product. Go for billy boy!

Some of the comments above are the typical arrogant, racist, xenophobic rubbish that the world has come to expect of Nigerians. "We're not corrupt or evil, everyone else is. This tells the truth so it cannot be statistically valid". It's not just Boko Haram that has rejected education.

Adultery or Corruption – Which is worse?

The statistics is on point and reflects the death of our traditional values.

Recently, I was with some friends and they were complaining about corrupt politicians. At least two of them were cheating on their wives with separate mistresses. I now made a statement that a man who is cheating on his wife, is probably not in a good position (“standing” in law) to complain about a corrupt politician. In law, we say that he that comes to equity must have clean hands. One of them said, “Ö boy, why you dey go there now?” So that there is gender equity, the same should apply to a woman who is cheating on her husband. I would not want the feminists to say I am ignoring them. As they say, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

This is from my weekly column called Let's Think & Talk on The POinter Newspaper every Monday. Prof (Pst.) Alex O. Atawa AKpodiete - 08138391661 or

It is interesting. I recently wrote an article comparing corruption and adultery in Nigeria. I asked which is worse? They both reflect the situation of our country and the diappearance of our traditional values. Prof. (Pst.) ALex O. Atawa AKpodiete

numbers dont lie it said it all that what they do hw to do most.cheating 4 money

I am shocked by the figures for Nigeria! I thought it is the Nigerian men that are traditional cheaters 90% of the way. I am now informed better!

what about Cameroonian women?

The thing is,we can't particularly say the stat is correct,but it has a serious point...immorality in nigeria is on a fast steady rise and i've observed that a lot of my close female friends cheat on their partners..speaking for myself..i'm dating a gal whom i love with passion and that i do everything in my power for 6 years now,i've even successfully modified my behaviour to suit hers and yet she still cheats for no understandable reason and i've been faithful to her throughout,wierd huh? But very even if u love with passion,the cheating risk still remains..We are in the generation of 'sex',its almost like u can get it on a shelf...there are barely platonic friendships anymore..its sex sex sex and more sex..our values are slowly eroding away..

nigeria is a country that traditionally and culturally do not welcome infidelity in any form or size unlike in the west were they celebrate infidelity, divorce,castigate their men for being unfaithful and applaude their women for sleeping around with any man of her choice.if the survey had shown that majority of nigerian men are unfaithful I would beleive not the women because our culture allows men to have more than one wife.

Another white liberal media smear campaign on blacks anywhere. Whether or not a percentage admitted to cheating is still a representation of the honesty of Nigerian women to step-up and say the truth. I think the question remains- What percentage of women in other countries lie on these surveys because they are accustomed to lying about their fidelity (particularly in the US, where white liberal values endorse the friends with benefits culture)?

I having never been to Nigeria I cannot speak as ann authority, but if ever given a choice between the values that Nigerian women are raised with and the the known ones American women have adopted over the past 25 years, I would pick trust a Nigerian woman's fidelity and faithfulness over an American woman (of any race) any day.

Truth is bitter, though a major problem with the findings is the attempt to generalise to the whole of Nigeria Women. Sensationalism, Yes, that is what sells in the papers. I don't remember people condemning the figures sometime when it was reported that Nigerians were the happiest people in the world, as a result of some similar statistical findings from a survey across the world not too long ago.
Fact remains that among the sampled women from Nigeria, more than 60% admitted to being unfaithful. It does not matter whether they are Hausa, Ibo or Yoruba, Ibiobio or Efik! Educated or non-educated, working or not working, they are Nigerian Women. Questioning methodology for the study is to miss the message of the findings. I am not saying it is wrong or right to be unfaithful, but at least we know that "some" Nigerian Women admitted to being unfaithful. Forget the figures!!!

29000 people is not up to 1 percent of Nigeria populations let alone be 36 nation this pple should stop this nonsense .Durex

The truth is that, Nigeria women cheats a lot and its increasing more and more everyday,so lets face the truth and stop being sentimental unneccessarily.

this guys are very funny u take such a statistic to represnt a population of 140mill pple durex is a joke n those other guy that feel they speak wat dey call truth are confuse as weelll

This is simply a false representation of Nigerian woman. What a poor statistics.

has anyone bothered to look for the survey? Where's the link? As far as i can see, this so called survey is running and running all over the net and yet there seem to be no source. Please if you can find the source - i don't mean some dubious website - i want Durex actual statistic, please post.

In the meantime anyone who believes Nigerian women would actually tell anyone that they are unfaithful then that person needs psychiatric help. Funny how some people go around on every site to call Nigerians lairs and cheats but happily believe that Nigerians would tell the truth about infidelity, the very thing most people deny even to themselves.

The only way i can see this happening is if Durex conducted an online survey. Because if they did then you can bet Ghanians and all the other Africans and Caribbeans who hate Nigerians would - if they come across it - answer for Nigerians. They would tick all the yes boxes or something.

We all know this fact that 99.9% of us do cheat,there is no point pointing accusing fingers on one another.Lets be more faithful to our partner's,boyfriend & girlfriend.
The company has said theirs but lets search our heart & see where or what we can do to make nigeria a better place for us to live.


The survey is absolutely.....FALSE. Durex, stop insulting our women try India, South Africa, and America maybe your result will change.

Durex may just be right because these ladies are mostly pretenders.even those with good jobs still stoop low to engage all forms of attrocities Nigerians are the most happiest in the world amidst our every day pressure. Romanians, Albanians and Russians are the most un-happy Italian men are the most unfaithful spouses> ASK YOUR WIFE,ASK BBC

Na lie...☺ .men are born cheaters!

This is very correct

I agree with the statistics and They don't care. Job-less people

This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world………
As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're going to fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about........

Na wa o!...only God go save us.

i think the statistics is very correct but they missed one point 98.9% of Nigerian men cheat. that is the only thing they got wrong but apart from that Nigerian women that i am observing now mostly cheat on their husbands. what you guys should be saying is that you haven't caught your wife yet. if they bring cheaters to Nigeria the percentage will definitely increase. we don't like telling ourselves the truth in that country.

If the research shows otherwise, i am sure our Nigerian women would be pulling the tip of their bubas' right now. I am sorry but you can only speak for yourself. Perhaps the women on this forum trust themselves, but pls dont verge for others like you would for yourself. My conclusion on the matter is this, if the stats proves accurate, then it shows that we have more work to do in not passing the bad moral fiber to the next generation instead of being unecessarily emotional, it is also a bad reflection on some Nigerian men who lack the wisdom of how to love their wives. Therefore i will encourage men to love their wives passionately to avoid them searching fot it outside, perhaps focusing on your wife alone will give you more strength to love her satisfactorily and women, stop driving your husband away from the house with your mouth on him all the time. God help us all and stay blessed.
