When marriage counselor M. Gary Neuman was recently on The Oprah Winfrey to talk about why men cheat, he stirred up such a controversy that he had to come back for a second show to further explain his message.

"The majority [of cheating men] say it's not about the sex," Gary said. "The majority said it was an emotional disconnection, specifically a sense of feeling underappreciated. A lack of thoughtful gestures. ... Men look strong, look powerful and capable, but on the inside they're insecure like everybody else. They're searching and looking for somebody to build them up, to make them feel valued."

Being the only man on the panel, Mark is called on to give his guy's perspective.

"I want to know if it's Darwinistic," Ali asks him. "Is it in your DNA to just spread your seed through the land? And it's in our DNA to incubate for nine months?"

"It takes very little [to please men]," Mark says. "I was jogging with my wife the other day and we came to a stop sign, and she said, 'You know what?' And I go, 'What?' And she said, 'The way you run...' And I figure she was going to say I looked funny. She goes, '...really hot.' And I'm like, 'I'm good for a month!'"

"When you guys jog, are you like, 'You're hot.' 'You're hot.' 'No, you're hot.' 'No, you're hot,'" Ali jokes. "And all the people in the park are going, 'You guys are hot!'"
