The only situation in which infidelity can be regarded as a sin is the one in which a couple forces itself to practice erotic faithfulness, which means it is unfaithful to infidelity. This is the original assumption from which Gemma Gaetani begins her hilarious journey through our perception of infidelity and of life as a couple, from Ikea to low cost holidays. She defies the common opinion that virtue can only result in something good, and that unfaithfulness belongs to evil personalities, such as Judas. With her outrageous, ironic prose, yet witty and full of literary, cinematic and iconic references, the author teaches us how to be secretly and diligently unfaithful. She aims at deconstructing the common, preposterous concept of faithful love life – which is also offensive towards God, since he is the only one we should be exclusive with. Besides, you will be advised on how to get over a partner’s cheating and encouraged to live the thrill of new conquests over and over, a pleasure which is denied by modern fashions such as polyamory, swinging, virtual sex, autoerotism and prostitution. From a list of social and economic benefits to practical advices for cheater wannabes, you will be fully equipped with great and valuable reasons to practice this brand new virtue, unfairly considered as one of the most immoral vices of human race.
