Ashley Madison Suicides

by An Ordinary Man (the novel)

A few suicides of men linked to the Ashley Madison infidelity website breach have been reported. These are truly tragic, to the extent that they are linked to the breach itself, but some, I suspect, were virtually inevitable anyway, owing to the fact that the man involved had, for whatever reason, lost an acceptable sexual outlet; i.e., his wife or girlfriend. Is the lack of sex enough to spur killing yourself? Absolutely. Women don’t usually deserve to be cheated on, but men don’t deserve involuntary celibacy, either. Forsaking all others does not include forsaking it entirely.
