Ok, I'll start. The most obvious: if you need something like this to determine your spouse's (or significant other's) fidelity, your relationship has bigger problems...no? Would anyone in present company actually use this?

No, but I would use their companion product, StaleMate, to see if the thrill has gone out of my marriage.

Well, sure, but that doesn't change the fact that millions do have such problems.

I think it's great--and hilarious! Presumably only useful for detection 50% of infidelities though, eh? I'm also betting it's a gag.

I am just waiting for the morons who actually use the test results in an argument.

"Well I know you cheated! This test is accurate for up to two years after you had sex!"

"I have had sex with YOU in the last two years haven't I?"

"Oh..."

The other 50% were probably women who were smart enough to use a condom.

Sorry to those who are easily offended/have queasy stomachs, but . . .

Cross contamination of all kinds of articles, with all manner of body products, occurs all the time. If you are a sexually active man, it wouldn't take much work to find semen in/on your car, kitchen counters, lightswitches, computer keyboard (work and home), remote control, etc.

Presence of semen alone isn't enough to prove sexual activity.

Of course, who needs the test when you can just use the tell-tale signs ...

It also seems that this product is only good for sloppy cheaters, not withstanding the point made by yesster.

Here's my favorite:

"Remember, after sex traces of semen are everywhere. Be creative in your search! "

Words fail me....

There's great stuffs in there too :

Your spouse gets very defensive if you mention infidelity or affairs.
Of course I would !

Your spouse has a low self-esteem.
You notice your spouse has a sense of confusion about self.

Err... I'm a geek/nerd, you know... Isn't that a reason enough to have a low-self-esteem ?

There is considerably less intimacy in your relationship. Your sex life is practically non-existent.
Spouse is suddenly more attentive than usual.

So, basically, whatever I do, I'm wrong...

Your spouse is dressing nicer, looking nicer.
You notice charges on credit card statement that don't make sense.

Duh...

You can't even get your mate to fight with you.
That's bad ? What is wrong with these guys ?

Your partner abandons religious faith.
Oh, well, you know, ever since she discovered sex...

Did you really have to say kitchen counters? I think I'll just have a glass of water for lunch now.

Hey... what's that on my keyboard?

Semen glows under ultraviolet light - if you want to freak yourself out, get a black light, and aim it toward your place of sexual activity.

sounds like it would work well for lesbian unfaithfulness.

Of course he might try to use excuses like masturbation, personal habits and hygiene etc. Everyone's situation is different...

According to her own situation, we believe a woman is smart enough to determine how semen got into his underwear after getting a positive test result.

I discovered the identity of my girlfriend's next-to-last lover with AntePenUltiMatetm.

Would you really feel better if you found out this way? I mean, what happened to the good old days of hiring a PI, or leavin a tape recorder taped to the bottom of the bed?

Whatever happened to not cheating....

Yeah, sure, but not masturbating?? For chicks its a pleasant hobby, but you know as well as I do that we have to do it. It's part of our lifestyle.

Doug: dude, it's not the heavy petting zoo you mutt. Hands off the lesser species.
