All Colombian Women Cheat

Alternate Title: Colombian Infidelity Statistics

All Colombian women cheat – this is a common belief among expats in Colombia. I’ve been hearing it from gringos ever since moving to Bogota, but I dismissed it to sample bias — gringos meeting mostly girls of lower moral fiber. If you make friends partying in La Candelaria and Zona Rosa doing cocaine and ecstasy, what do you think you’re going to get?

In college I met almost exclusively family-type, “good girl” Latinas from the top 1% of social classes in Brazil to Peru. But you’re not going to meet those girls snorting coke at Ceci’s. So I thought the infidelity perception was an anomaly due to sampling bias.

But that changed over time. I think Latin America is a little more unfaithful than what Gringolandia would consider normal, which I attribute to the Catholic Church prohibiting divorce, and Colombia even more unfaithful than that, which I attribute to it being a den-of-sin kind of culture.

Then I came across this hard-copy article in El Tiempo from March of last year: América Latina, territorio infiel. The article says that not only does greater Latin America cheat a lot, but Colombia leads the region. How can I argue with the national letter of record?


Six of every 10 Latin Americans (63%) admit to having cheated at least once … Colombians seem to be the most unfaithful in the region … 66% of [Colombian] men and women admit to having cheated at least once.

The article isn’t as interesting as the statistics, and unfortunately the El Tiempo archive online doesn’t include those. So here are my picks, plus screenshots of the hard copy so you can see them all.

  • 10.5% of Latin Americans would like to have sex more than seven times a week
  • 9.2% of Latin Americans are currently cheating
  • 45.2% of Latin women have never cheated
  • 40.8% of Colombian women have never cheated
  • 51% of Latin men have paid for sex
  • 13.7% of Latin men’s first sexual experience was with another male
  • 47.5% of Latin Americans have participated in trios or group sex
  • 9.1% of Latin Americans currently participate in trios or group sex
  • Colombian trio / group sex percentages are higher than greater Latin America
  • 22.3% of Latin Americans had their first sexual experience before 16 years old
  • 63% of Latin Americans grew up in  homes where sex was never discussed

After reading this article, I started thinking about the dealings I’ve had with Colombian women, and I think a majority had boyfriends. From the very first Colombian girl I made out with to the current booty call.

So maybe there is something to the saying …

  1. Lee, You want advice so that you can ignore it again like last time? No more advice from me. I don’t believe her story and I’m beginning to not believe your story, either. If you want advice a better forum for this would be a real forum like the one I re-opened: where we discuss dating and marrying foreign women. I’m sure you would get some advice there.


  2. True! They are masters at narcissism!!! It’s quite interesting to see 40 year old Botoxed to the hills, huge eyelash extensions, while dressing like a whore or child. They hang all over men, men beware don’t even think of talking to another female!
    And once married (most illegal for a green card, divorce and then remarry)
    Nothing is ever good for them , they treat you like crap once married and it’s all about them and them only.


  3. Just a heads up for those that are unaware. In hindsight I would avoid at all costs engaging in anything with any woman in the paisa region if you are not living there and currently fornicating with them on a regular basis, hopefully with minimal expense to your pocket book. The paisa region (consisting of Periera, Armenia, and Manizales in conjunction with Medellín), are notorious for raising hookers who travel to Europe, USA and China for sex work. So if you happen to be in any of the aforementioned countries/continents and you come across a Colombian, chances are she’s a hooker or a stripper (see hooker) 75% of the time. Get your rocks off if you want, but let them eat each other alive instead of swallowing you whole (pun not intended).
