Why Do Argentinians Cheat So Much? (Chongos, Telos)

We interviewed people on the streets of Buenos Aires about how they see friends with benefits, or chongos. Do they have a chongo, and how many? Have they been to a love motel "telo"? Have they been cheated on or have they cheated on their partner? And what do they think about commitment?

    Been learning spanish for years but many of these things were completely new for me about the argentinian culture

    Argentinian women seem very attractive and fun. I would like to meet one someday. Saludos desde Argentina.

    Well Argentina is out 😅

    Damn… so sad to normalize hookups and cheating in a society.

    • @dunnowy123 says:

      I think it’s weird if a person hasn’t had a hook up phase in the 21st century (obviously cultural norms permitting). How can you know who you should end up with for the rest of your life if you haven’t gotten over the desire for no-frills sex out of your system? And, realistically, if you find a woman/man who you wouldn’t dare cheat on, is that not a good thing?

      I lived in the opposite and its not healthy, Now probably you are not married.

    • @oreoakalaperoji8314 says:

      ​@@rsoub4086Are you saying casual sex and cheating are healthy?

    • @oreoakalaperoji8314 says:

      ​@@dunnowy123you’re right it’s very strange to meet people without a sheep-like mindset. Most follow cultural norms and trends. Can you honestly say in Hitler’s Germany you wouldn’t also blindly hate jews?

      dont generalized… not all women are like this

    • @shutting88 says:

      @@user-gp4fm4id4o Of course everybody can be different but you may find more than enough people that might be interested in you. In other countries, people may do it more secretly.

    I never knew Argentinian women were such 304s.

    That’s what I want: a girl that everyone I know uses.

    • @franciscovilcheavila960 says:

      Or you prefer one who do her stuff behind your back ?
      Because always happens that stuff the only difference is you dont need to hide your dirty laundry today xD.

      If you expect a nun go to a convent.

    no wonder families are failing, sex should not be the basis of a relationship if its going to be anything meaningful

    Hay un país americano que estás cosas no pasan o no son común, He escuchado que las chicas de las americas son así pero pensé fue gringos armagos pero después este vídeo no se que decir la verdad. Alguien de las Américas puede confirmar si es tan malo los dicen?
