I'm still not clear what you're asking and your comments are getting pejorative. Please keep a civil tone.

comment What causes post-masturbation guilt?
My first instinct is that it's a result of being shamed about sexuality in their community, family, peer group, etc.

comment Is it normal for men in long term relationships to want to have sexual relationships with other women?
The effect of pheromones in humans is still a controversial subject. I do think your answer hits on an important point: quality vs. quantity. If your environment is hazardous, and infant mortality is high, you're going to want to have more children (knowing that some will die). If you're environment is stable and infant mortality is low, you can have less children and focus on ensuring their survival by putting more time into fewer children. And this is what we observe in third world (high infant mortality) vs. first world (low infant mortality).
