Relationships are Unhappier Since Pandemic

 * 23% increase in marriage breakdowns amidst the pandemic
* 71% of people agree coronavirus has made their relationship worse
* Women are twice as likely than men to demand a break up
* Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

IllicitEncounters.com has seen a 23% increase of members changing their status from Married to Separated between the months of May and July compared to the same time last year.

It is unsurprising that more women than men changed their status to separated, with another study by a law form concluding two thirds of all divorces are initiated by women*

A further 800 members of the website were surveyed and staggering 71% of those agree they are less happy in their relationship as a direct result of coronavirus, suggesting that marriages have become toxic and unbearable in the lockdown. 

Those who agreed covid-19 has made their relationships worse, were asked what they are planning to do to improve their relationship satisfaction, with 42% admitting they hope an affair will make their marriage happier, and a further 22% are simply sticking around to see if things improve.

Kelsey, a member on IllicitEncounters.com said “We argue at the best of times, but covid has made our arguments worse. We can’t escape and let off some steam, I never realised till now how important that is. I don’t know how much more of this I can take.”

 Frank, another member on the site said “If it wasn’t for covid I’d have no reason to leave my wife, but the lockdown has opened my eyes to a lot of our relationship issues, issues I’ve ignored or buried in the past. It’s weird breaking up during a pandemic, but I think it’s a good thing.” 

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “Couples who probably wouldn’t even have dreamt of breaking up – are now running for the hills. If there were any issues before, they’ll have been amplified tenfold during the lockdown. Even the most secure relationships will have felt torturous at times.

Those who have decided to stay together, and sought out an affair instead, may just be able to save their marriages before it’s too late.”

Results

Out of the 71% who acknowledged their relationship is unhappier since covid-19 – we asked the following:

What are you planning to do to improve your relationship satisfaction?

I’m hoping an affair will make my marriage happier 42%

I’m simply sticking around to see if things improve 22%

Nothing -I love them, I don’t think I’ll ever leave them 17%

We’re going to have an open relationship 10%

I’m hoping to find someone to replace my partner 6%

Other 3%

Cheating Could Cause a Second Spike!

* 41% of adulterers set to book sex-getaways from the 4th of July
* 16% of love rats have no qualms about meeting more than one household for affairs
* Over half of those surveyed are not socially distancing when meeting lovers
* Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

Can you expect cheaters to stick to the rules? Love rats across the UK shun guidelines for intimacy – amidst the pandemic. A British legal firm has seen a 42% increase in divorce inquiries* since restrictions began, indicating that marriages are becoming unbearable in lockdown, these relationship breakdowns are making the need to cheat prevalent.

With lockdown restrictions easing this weekend, IllicitEncounters.com predicts cheating may cause a second spike.

600 members of the site were surveyed regarding how they are managing their affairs, and their feelings about dating during the covid-19 outbreak.

82% of adulterers admit to feeling less lonely since the lockdown restrictions have eased.

54% admit they have not been socially distancing when meeting.

A whopping 41% of adulterers are looking to book a staycation in the UK with their mistress or histress.
16% of adulterers admit they have no qualms about meeting more than one household for affairs.

33% of affair seekers already have a date planned for next week when restaurants and pubs are open.

72% of affair seekers are aware they are breaking guidelines to cheat.

83% think the reward of having an affair far outweighs the risk of contracting covid-19.

22% of cheats have self administered coronavirus tests to check they are in the clear before seeing their lovers.

England’s Chief Medical Officer, Christ Whitty has recently warned that “If people hear a distorted version of what’s being said, that says ‘this is all fine now, it’s gone away’ and start behaving in ways that they normally would have before this virus happened, yes, we will get an uptick for sure.”

Not everyone seems to be clear on what you should and shouldn’t do in the current climate. With many affair seekers choosing to cheat at this time, adultery could possibly contribute to a spike in coronavirus cases.

Gabrielle, a female member using IllicitEncounters.com said “I’ve been really well behaved during this lockdown, and feel it’s finally time to reward myself with a holiday in the countryside with a married man I’ve been seeing. I’m separated so I don’t need an excuse, and he’s just told his wife he’s visiting family in the area. I like dating married men because I don’t want the commitment of a full time relationship”

Emma, another female on the site said “My situation is different in the sense that I live with the person I’m cheating with. I’m in a long distance relationship with my partner who lives in Canada, and we’ve had no way of seeing each other for over 4 months. Me and my housemate really got on, and being cooped up inside all this time, well, things happen. I don’t regret it, I’ve been starved of intimacy so it’s been really great to have a physical relationship again. I still love my partner in Canada, and plan to reunite with him as soon as I can. I’ll obviously be keeping this affair a secret, the last thing I want to do is hurt him.”

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “It’s interesting to see how affair seekers have continued to keep the spark alive in their relationship. I am delighted to hear that those who are lonely or disheartened at home are able to get some fulfillment from talking to their lovers, communication is truly important right now. Although, we do advise to listen to government guidelines on our website and if meets are unavoidable to adhere to social distancing – we must all practice staying safe.

Lockdown has caused many of us to make sacrifices, and despite the stigma associated with affairs – they are just as much a relationship as any other, and a lot of our members have been lacking that connection for a very long time.”

He’s not Exercising, He’s having an Affair!

* Lockdown ease sends lustful loverats to cheat
* Exercise top affair alibi for men and women, with running in top place
* Second place excuse to cheat for women is sunbathing as the UK enters a heatwave
* Survey conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 240 of its members who have met up with their mistress or histress in the last week.

With lockdown restrictions having been marginally eased in the UK, the majority of men and women who are having affairs during lockdown are using exercise as an excuse to meet up.

A whopping 78% of men and 54% of women have said they are out exercising in the last week when actually they’ve been cheating.

Men are most likely to say they are going for a run (24%), followed by playing tennis (16%).

Top cheating excuse for women is going for a walk (20%).

The second highest rated excuse for women is sunbathing (15%) – coinciding with the recent heatwave in the UK. With forecasts predicted to go up to a scorching 26C in some parts of London today, this excuse is likely to continue to rise as the weather gets hotter.

Some of the excuses were gender specific.

Only men cite playing tennis (16%), going for a drive (11%), playing golf (9%), needing to cool off after an argument (3%) and dropping by the office (2%) as an excuse to cheat in the last week.

Whereas only women cite sunbathing (15%), needing a break from the kids (12%), yoga (7%), grocery shopping (6%), and visiting a garden centre (4%) as an excuse.

Going for a run comes in as the top excuse with 19% for both genders combined.

Dave, a member using IllicitEncounters.com said “It isn’t that unusual for me to be doing outdoor sports, I’ve always been a keen runner and a avid cyclist, leaving the house for a few hours a day sporting lycra is very ordinary, so exercise for me is the perfect excuse to cheat.”

Monika, a member using IllicitEncounters.com said “Oh come on, we’re all adults here. Seeing your lover during lockdown is no different to meeting up with a friend and socially distancing. I take my border collie for a walk and meet my other man in the park, so sue me. The weather has been so nice recently, I’ve just been telling my hubby I’m out sunbathing, the tan lines make it easy to prove.”

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “If people choose to meet their lovers during lockdown it is essential they adhere to social distancing rules. Let’s keep the exercise alive, and leave the sexercise till life returns to normal.

People who are in unhappy marriages often report feeling lonely. Lockdown has made these people feel even more isolated and alone. It’s expected that they would try and see each other, to fill that emotional void, and satisfy a basic social need of love and belonging.

Many people who are cheating are living a discreet double life, so in order to see their lover they need to come up with a justifiable reason. I’m not surprised exercise is the primary excuse to cheat for both genders, it’s one of the main reasons we are allowed to venture out during lockdown.”

Going for a run 24%

You’re Caught! The Top Ten Apps that Bust Affairs!

* Apple users most likely to get caught cheating
* Second and third place are Facebook and Whatsapp apps 
* Adulterers have even been caught cheating by smart speaker Alexa
* Survey conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 500 of it’s female members who have previously caught their husbands cheating on apps!

Turns out you’re most likely to get caught cheating via iMessage (23%), followed by Facebook (18%) and Whatsapp (14%).

Shockingly there’s even a chance you can get caught cheating by your smart speaker, with a handful of affairs busted by Alexa (1%).

iMessage
Apple users beware – the top app to bust affairs is the iphone’s iMessage app – which is often linked to multiple devices such as ipads, laptops or even apple tv. Apple fans need to take note of where their messages are going to – and how easily these can be accessed. 23% of women have caught their partners cheating via iMessage.

Facebook 
Facebook is a minefield for infidelity, with 18% of women catching their husbands out via Facebook. Leaving your Facebook logged in and unattended can be a grave mistake around suspicious partners. This type of infidelity is opportunistic and convenient – and more often than not is with somebody you already know. 52% of women who caught their partners cheating on Facebook admitted to personally knowing their husband’s lover.

Whatsapp
Whatsapp may seem like a good place to have illicit chats – keeping conversations segregated from your normal mobile text messages, however, a whopping 14% of women have caught their partner cheating this way. If you don’t securely password protect your phone or switch off notifications and hide your apps – a quick Whatsapp stalk and any naughty messages can easily be discovered. 

Tinder
Tinder is the obvious app to catch a cheat, with 13% of affairs being busted by Tinder – having this app on your phone when you’re in a committed relationship is a cause for concern. Perhaps a smaller number of people get caught this way because they hide the app well in secret folders and have good password security on their phones.

Instagram
Adultery on instagram is ripe, with 11% getting caught this way. Not only is it easy to spot when your partner has been liking other womens pictures, it has an inbuilt chat interface that can get you in trouble. A favourite of a younger demographic, more than half of the women who discovered their husbands illicit antics on instagram are under 35 years old.

Zoom
A number of philanderers have had their love affairs exposed while on a Zoom call! 

Zoom, a popular video app, has seen a peak of registrations since lockdown, with many companies utilising Zoom for work meetings. We recommend Zoom for work, not pleasure, as 7% of cheating men have been caught this way.

Snapchat
Messages on snapchat may seem discrete, one minute they are there, next minute they are gone! Snapchat allows users to send pictures or videos which once viewed will self-destruct and disappear off your phone forever – that is, unless you screen grab them. Some husbands just can’t help themselves, and several wives have found shots of ladies on their phones from snapchat. 

Snapchat also has a snap maps feature that can track your partners location, another sure fire way to catch them cheating. You can even check who your partner has been snapchatting with the most with friends’ emojis – if it’s regularly with an unfamiliar lady this is sure to set off alarm bells. 6% of affairs have been busted by snapchat.

Find my friends
Find my friends is a tracking app – used to easily locate your friends or family. A favorite for parents wanting to keep tabs on their teenage kids, it’s also one of the top apps for finding cheating husbands. 4% of men have actually been caught in the act this way.

Kik
Kik is the favorite app for adultery, a previous study on IllicitEncounters.com confirmed that over half of users (57%) have downloaded Kik to chat to their lovers. Surprisingly only 3% of men have been caught cheating on Kik by their wives. 

Alexa
Alexa has made our lives easier in many ways, with voice activated technology allowing us to play music, movies, order a take away and even turn the lights on. Now, Alexa can go one step further and uncover a love rat! A wife can see what calls have been made directly through Alexa, a call search can quickly reveal the phone number of their husbands’ mistress. 

Alexa has another unique way of revealing an affair, one woman discovered her spouse’s infidelity by playing back audio recordings through Alexa, and hearing her husband’s lover giving voice commands in the recordings. 1% of wives have uncovered adultery through Alexa, low chance of getting caught this way, but possible nonetheless. 

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “Apple users need to be extra careful when chatting to their mistress’ via iMessage – messages can easily show up on multiple devices – which really puts you in the danger zone. It’s recommended to stick to more discrete ways of communicating, password protect or hide apps and use aliases for your lovers instead of their real names..

If you want to have an affair it’s also best to keep it off social media – friending your lover online is way too conspicuous.”

Percentage of Affairs Busted by Apps 

iMessage 23%

Facebook 18%

Whatsapp 14%

Tinder 13%

Instagram 11%

Zoom 7%

Snapchat 6%

Find my friends 4%

Kik 3%

Alexa 1%

What counts as cheating and what doesn’t during lockdown?

  • Sexy phone or video calls, as well as sexting and exchanging nudes are all considered cheating.
  • Likes on social media, flirty banter in a group chat, and chatting to an old flame fall into the not cheating bracket.
  • Porn is only cheating when it’s paid for, and faithful when it’s free!
  • The results come from a study of 2000 members on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest extramarital dating site.

It’s pretty clear to us all what constitutes infidelity, however, is it apparent what doesn’t?

The rules of engagement need revision during lockdown as love rats get creative with how they can cheat.

Illicitencounters.com has compiled a list of what is and what isn’t cheating based on suggestions and responses of 2000 of its members.

Cheating:
Sexy phone or video calls
Sexting
Exchanging nudes
Porn you’ve paid for
Using online dating sites
Catcalling 

Not Cheating:
Likes on social media
Free pornography
Flirty banter in group chats
Chatting to an old flame
Sexy thoughts about somebody else
Reading erotic novels

Sexy phone calls and video calls are unanimously considered cheating by men (98%) and women (100%)

A quarter more women than men agree that porn you’ve paid for is cheating.

1% more women (98%) than men (97%) agree that exchanging nudes is adulterous.

Nearly all of the men (96%) and women (91%) do not recognize likes on social media to be unfaithful. Keeping social media in the safe zone for committed couples.

There were a few discrepancies between genders, with 86% of men saying free ponography was not cheating compared to just 74% of women.

73% of men believe flirty banter in group chats is not considered an act of deceit, whilst just a little over half 56% of women agreed.

More women (70%)  than men (57%) concede that chatting to an old flame is not cheating.

Francesca, a member on IllicitEncounters.com said “ I have 2 kids with my ex husband, and I’m currently dating a fella who I met on the site a year ago. Up until a month ago he didn’t live with us. Since he’s moved in, I am finding out lots of things about him that are annoying me. It’s actually made me appreciate my ex much more, and we’ve been chatting casually as of late. My partner doesn’t like it, he thinks it’s cheating, but I haven’t crossed any lines – yet. I’ve got to admit though, I’ve been having a few erotic dreams about my ex and I’m starting to think this new relationship was a mistake.”

Stuart a member on the site said “Me and my wife are both part of a whatsapp group chat where inappropriate comments between friends is the norm, it’s harmless banter. I think porn paid or not paid should be allowed too to be honest, but each to their own. I don’t think catcalling should be considered cheating either, it’s just a laugh isn’t it? It isn’t really cheating if your partner never finds out!”

Sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “It’s about time myths around what is and what isn’t cheating were debunked. We’re going to reach a virtual cheating spike over the next couple of months as tensions are high at home and spouses are looking for an outlet. 

I’m ecstatic that catcalling has made the cheating list, it isn’t acceptable even when you are single! 

It’s interesting to see that watching porn can be on both lists depending on whether it’s free or not.”

How to keep the spark alive in lockdown

* Dirty talk is the best way to keep the spark alive when apart

* Women prioritise honest communication about your feelings

* More men agree not being needy is the key to long lasting passion 

* The results come from a survey of over 1,200 members from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people 

Is there distance between you and your sexual partner? How will you keep your sex life alive?

IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 1200 of its members and found out their top favorite ways to make long distance love, as well as some useful advice.

The top two favorite ways to keep the spark alive as voted by men and women is dirty talk and sexy pictures, interestingly enough the majority of women prefer dirty talk, whereas men opted for visual stiumulation with more voting for sexy pictures. 

Twice as many women as men prefer honest communication about your feelings.

Just over a quarter more men preferred video calls compared to women.

More men than women (17%) preferred their lover to not be needy when apart.

8 Most Popular Ways to Keep the Spark Alive

Dirty Talk
Samantha, Leeds

“There is literally nothing sexier than a man that knows how to talk dirty. It’s all about using your imagination, setting the scene and being descriptive. I recommend one of you being dominant on the phone, or perhaps take it in turns to be the one in control. To start, talk about what you’d like to do to one another, then move onto sexual requests and fantasies. Put on a husky voice and keep the tone slow and sensual, and if in doubt a little moan and a groan will also go a long way.”
Sexy pictures
Rebecca, London

“I get more gratification from sending dirty photos than from receiving them. You get a real kick out of it, feeling sexy and desirable. You want to dress up – seductive lingerie, stockings, push up bra, high heels – the works. Another handy tip is devil red lipstick and big volumized hair, attention to detail is paramount. Once dolled up you just need to set a timer for your picture. Make sure you’re happy with the background, facial expression, and get ready to pose. One of my top tips is to leave a little to the imagination as well, you want to aim to tease your fella. Sending naughty photos is such a turn on, and truly boosts your confidence. Having a man lust over you really makes you feel a million dollars.”

Video Calls
Trevor, Surrey

“It’s an opportunity to connect and be present. We are actually very lucky that we can do that these days. Firstly, find the time to make the call when you’re going to be alone and not going to be distracted. Secondly, ensure that you’re happy with the image,  you have a good angle and your background isn’t cluttered. Thirdly, relax, catch up and have a little flirt. You may feel a little camera shy at first, but you’ll be a pro at it in no time.”

Sexting 
Claire, Essex

“Sexy messages when apart are such a turn on, making you blush and giggle out loud. Take your time creating your message there’s no rush. I find what works for me is closing my eyes and imagining what I’d like to be doing with that person. Be descriptive, and use language you might be too shy to normally use in bed. For example, calling someone a naughty boy or a naughty girl is super cringy to say out loud, but for some reason totally hot via text. Let your imagination run wild” 

Honest communication about your feelings
Harriet, London

“Open and honest communication is one of the ground rules to any companionship, and even more so when you’re apart. In order to feel connected there has to be openness and a non-judgemental space in which you are able to talk. If I ever feel caught up in my feelings or insecure I always make the effort to discuss these things, so that I know that we’re on the same page. Problems arise when you keep eachother out of the loop. How can you possibly come up with solutions or compromise when feelings are kept hidden?”

Don’t be needy 
Michael, Devon

“Avoid speaking to each other everyday. Let’s not discuss our daily routine, why does anybody want to know about what time you woke up or what you had for breakfast? It’s boring. Let there be a little distance. All great love stories are ones where the lovers are tragically separated – these are tales of inspiration, desperation and eternal longing, it’s the separation that makes it so exciting. I’m not saying don’t talk at all! But don’t just call for no reason or to pass the time. Keep things fresh and exciting, chat a little less often.”

Set goals
Lewis, Manchester

“Having a goal gives you something to look forward to, and discussing plans to meet up with your lover creates anticipation, which is an excellent way to keep the spark alive. Talking about where you’d like to go, and what you’d like to do together when you finally can, makes being apart feel more temporary, and ignites your hopes and dreams about reuniting”

Sending gifts
Stephanie, Newcastle

“My love language is gifts, it always has been. I think if someone adores you they make the effort to surprise you with thoughtful presents. If I mention a perfume I really like, I expect my lover to buy it for me, I’d be offended if they didn’t. When apart I think it’s a good idea to send flowers, presents, anything to remind you that you’re being thought of”

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, they missed out the part that distance makes people horny.

Of course if you have a passionate relationship with someone, and all of a sudden you are not able to see them for awhile, it’s going to make you crazy with lust, and crave that person. Wanting to be physical with someone can sometimes be more powerful than the act itself.”

Vegetarians make the best lovers

*  Meat eaters are selfish in bed and unhappy in their sex lives compared to vegetarians
*  Vegetarians and vegans make love more often than meat eaters
*  Vegans are the happiest in their sex lives
*  The results come from the diet and sexual habits of 1000 members on IllcitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest extramarital dating site.

500 vegetarians (of which 38% identified as vegan), and 500 meat eaters were polled by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site on their diet and sexual activities.

Vegetarians are more likely to enjoy making out, foreplay, and dirty talk than their meat-eating counterparts. The study also indicates that meat eaters are notoriously selfish in bed and get down and dirty a lot less than vegetarians. Could conscious eating be a recipe for more thoughtful sex?

The majority of vegetarians (57%) make love 3-4 times a week compared to most meat eaters who only enjoy bedroom antics 1-2 times a week (49%).

84% of vegetarians report they are satisfied in their sex lives, compared to only 59% of meat eaters. Astonishingly 95% of the vegan participants said they were satisfied.

Vegetarians enjoy making out (92%), foreplay (88%) and dirty talk (48%) much more than their meat eating counterparts (79%, 68% and 35% respectively)

58% of vegetarians claim they are givers in bed rather than takers, only 35% of meat eaters describe themselves as givers – suggesting that meaters are a tad selfish in bed.

Least enjoyable for both vegetarians (26%) and meat eaters (15%) is bondage.

Exactly the same amount of vegetarians and meat eaters enjoy trying out new sexual positions (77%)

Heather, a 39 year old vegan on the site said “I ate meat all my life, till about 18 months ago. When I still ate meat and animal by products, I found myself constantly tired, bloated and my sex life was non existent, tragic I know. I just thought it was an age-related thing, losing interest you know? Now I’m on a plant based diet, I have more energy and I’m more open to trying out new things. Who knew changing your diet could increase the libido?”

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationships expert, Jessica Leoni said “‘Veggies are masters in seduction, why? Vegetarians eat foods that are known for their aphrodisiac properties, of course they’re more aroused. Maca – a peruvian root vegetable, fenugreek leaves, ginseng, aniseed – there is a host of different veggies that are natural aphrodisiacs that promote sexual excitement.

I for one have never heard a rack of BBQ ribs or a lamb shank to turn you on. Getting hot under the collar is not the same thing as getting meat sweats.

Meat eaters are not making love regularly enough, that’s probably another reason why they’re selfish in bed – if you only get intimate with your partner once in a blue moon of course you’re going to want to receive a lot more than you’re willing to give.”

Over a quarter of married couples are OK with their partner cheating

·        26% of spouses are OK with their partner cheating!

·        Women more likely to give an affair the green light

·        Research conducted by the UK’s top extra-marital dating site IllicitEncounters.com
It seems that views regarding monogamy are rapidly changing as more married couples opt to open their relationships and become more open and honest with each other.

IllicitEncounters.com polled 2700 of its members asking them “Has your spouse given you permission to cheat?”

A staggering 26% of those surveyed confirmed that their spouse is OK with them cheating.

The study reveals that 12% of adulterers have actually received permission from their partner to date outside of their marriage.

8% of adulterers have a mutual agreement with their spouse that allows them to enjoy an affair, and 6% admit their partner turns a blind eye.

61% of members that were allowed to stray were men, indicating that women are more likely to allow their husbands to cheat.

Diana, a current member using the site, said “My husband and I have been together for 17 years. We’ve worked hard at a good life, raised 2 fantastic kids who’ve long flown the nest; life has been kind to us. My husband is my best friend, but we have lost interest in each other sexually, although we do still sleep in the same bed every night that we’re together.

Five years ago, after a friends dinner party we had a heart-to-heart and admitted we were lacking passion and desire, and we took the risk and decided to open up our relationship. It has really worked well for us. We don’t share any of the intimate details, we’re discreet in order to respect each other’s feelings, and when we are together we simply carry on with our marital life.

I would recommend an affair to any couple in a similar situation, it’s actually brought us closer together. If you can’t be honest, even about the deepest and darkest of needs and desires, then you’re always, always going to feel trapped.”

lllicitEncounters.com sex and relationship expert Jessica Leoni said “Relationships shouldn’t have stipulations, can’t do this, can’t do that. No wonder more and more couples are engaging in some extra-marital fun! It’s no secret that affairs have been going on since the beginning of time, I think it’s great to see they are becoming a little more socially acceptable.

What we know about love and marriage is outdated, and old fashioned. I am pleased to see that men and women in the UK are challenging what we’ve ever been taught about commitment and true love.”

If your spouse drives a German car, they may be having an affair

* German cars are the most popular with adulterers
* Volkswagen number one car for cheating men, and Mercedes for cheating women
* Fiat is the least favourite car for affair-seekers
* More than half of women claim a man’s car affects his dateability
* Survey conducted by the UK’s largest extra marital dating site IllicitEncounters.com

Is it possible to tell an adulterer by the vehicle they drive? IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 2500 of its members, asking them which brand of car they are currently driving.

Volkswagen wins the crown with 22%, as the top cheating car driven by men in the UK. It comes as no surprise, as Volkswagen, based in Wolfsburg, Germany, announce record sales for last year.

Mercedes is the number one car driven by affair seeking women (20%).

BMW comes in second for both men and women, with 18% and 17% respectively.

The car least driven by cheating men and women is the Fiat, with only 0.2% combined.

Flashy cars and sex appeal have always gone well together, with research even indicating having a nice car can change you from a 4/10 to an 8/10, with 58% of women claiming a man’s car affects his dateability.*

Car manufacturers are aware of this and will often sexualise their adverts, with Mercedes previously advertising their fleet of cars, in a now banned, infidelity advert.

Top Cheating Cars Driven by Men

Top Cheating Cars Driven by Women

BMW 17%
Audi 16%
Mini 15%
Kia 13%
Vauxhall 9%
Other 10%
Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Jessica Leoni said “The car you drive speaks volumes about your personality. The results indicate that adulterers tend to be affluent and successful, willing to invest in good quality. This attitude extends to our drivers marital lives, where having an affair is a luxury for men and women who are unwilling to settle for mediocrity.

The top three automobiles for both men and women are from German manufacturers, designed for their comfort, style and practicality.

German cars have always dominated the market, and have especially been glamorised recently by hip hop artists in songs such as German by artist EO, or Meridan Dan’s – German Whip. This notoriety of German cars in the charts could also lend a hand at their popularity. After all, adulterers want the best of the best – best car, spouse, lover…and why not?”

Sexy New Year Bucket List

Sex in Public
Men – 90% said yes
Women – 34% said yes

Usually explored in the honeymoon period of a relationship when you simply cannot keep your hands off each other. It’s naughty and dangerous, not to mention subject to nudity and decency laws – not one for the fainthearted! My recommendation is to find somewhere isolated and discrete for those wanting to try sex in public for the very first time, before you join the expert level mile high club.

Role-play
Men – 32% said yes
Women – 41% said yes

Getting involved in role-play is the ultimate way to express yourself in the bedroom and acting out any adventurous sexual fantasies you may have. Decide on a scenario and roles prior and play dress up to make the experience more authentic, think doctors and nurses, coppers and robbers – whatever tickles your fancy.

Bondage
Men – 55% said yes
Women – 37% said yes

A great way to explore your kinkier side. It’ll get you communicating better in the bedroom and discovering all sorts of thrilling things you may have not even realised you were into. Rihanna got it right in her S&M track – “sticks and stones may break my bones, but whips and chains excite me.”

Phone sex
Men – 79% said yes
Women – 82% said yes

Nothing beats this old time classic. Imagine a long night ahead of you apart from your lover, what better way to close the distance then a naughty call? Dirty talk is an art, and a timeless sexy adventure. Now you can turn up the heat by switching on the camera too, to add that extra dimension to this fantasy.

Hotel Sex
Men – 88% said yes
Women – 70% said yes

Everybody loves a bit of off-duty fun, and booking a hotel to have some romantic adventures with your significant other is the best way to enjoy some one on one adult fun. Picture this, booking a room by the hour and texting your partner, “I’m waiting for you in Room 609 baby…hurry” – undeniably sexy.

New Sex Positions
Men – 84% said yes
Women – 71% said yes

Kama Sutra – why not? If you always rely on missionary, mixing it up a little will add so much more to your sex life.

Threesome
Men – 65% said yes
Women – 24% said yes

Some may say that three is in fact – the magic number. Inviting a third person into the party can be exhilarating, fun, and full of discoveries. Make sure that you have some boundaries and rules laid out with your partner before giving this one a shot, and if everybody is game this bucket list must have guarantees a night of racy fun.

Foreplay
Men – 68% said yes
Women – 92% said yes

None of this wham, bam, thank you mam – foreplay is essential for good sex! Spending more time playing before hand and getting each other aroused creates anticipation and sexual energy that is bound to make the act of love making a whole lot more satisfying.

Dress up & Strip off
Men – 74% said yes
Women – 68% said yes

The Full Monty? Yes please. Dressing up and performing a strip tease is going to get anybody’s pulses racing. Invest in some erotic clothing or lingerie and step outside of your comfort zone – not only does playing dress up build your confidence, it’s a sure way to turn your partner on.

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationship expert Jessica Leoni said “A new year signifies new opportunities and why shouldn’t that extend to our bedroom fantasies. Whether you’re in a stale relationship that needs some spice, or single and ready to mingle – giving the sexy New Year bucket list a try this year is a must!”
