Catch an Adulterer by their Taste in Chocolate 

* Adulterers vote Celebrations as the number one box of chocs this Christmas 

* The number one chocolate as chosen by cheats is Celebrations’ Maltesers Teasers
* Spouses that love Roses are the most faithful in Britain

* 1 in 3 affair-seekers have used chocolate during sex!

* Results are from a new survey of 2,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people


If your partner buys a box of Celebrations this Christmas – I’d be worried they may have been naughty rather than nice this year.

A survey of 2,000 married cheats on IllicitEncounters.com has made some rather sweet discoveries around infidelity, sex and chocolates, and here are the results.

Adulterers vote Celebrations as the number one box of chocs for cheats this Christmas with a whopping 42% of cheats choosing Celebrations over any other brand. 

Second place goes to Cadbury Heroes with 27%, followed by Quality Street with 19%.

Roses are least liked by love rats (7%) – making those who enjoy Roses the most faithful Brits!

The respondents were also asked to vote on their favourite chocolate across all the brands. 

Turns out cheats reach for Celebrations’ Maltesers Teasers (20%) more than any other chocolate!

Second favourite chocolate is Celebrations’ Miniature Snickers (17%), followed by Cadbury Heroes’ Wispa (13%) in third and Quality Street’s Fudge (10%) in fourth place.

Fifth place goes to Celebrations’ Galaxy (9%), followed by Cadbury Heroes’ Crunchie (7%) in sixth.

Roses’ Hazel Whirl comes in at seventh overall (6%) and Quality Street’s Green Triangle (5%) in eighth place, followed by Quality Street’s The Purple One (3%) in ninth.

Last but not least, and surprisingly, Roses’ Strawberry Dream (2%) makes the final cut in the top 10.

35% of cheats have used chocolate in an erotic fashion, while 70% of those that haven’t would love to try chocolate in their sex life!

IllicitEncounters.com has previously discovered that 33% of female love rats shop in M&S for sexy lingerie to wear for their affair*. So, if you spot a spouse shopping around Marks and Sparks for bras and Celebrations this festive season – they may well be looking to cheat!

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com said ‘We all know someone who just can’t help but sneak those extra few bites of delicious chocolate when it’s handed to them on a plate – they simply cannot trust themselves! That self-indulgence and lack of willpower is a recipe for an affair. Seeking pleasure in chocolate is the same as seeking pleasure in extra-marital sex – both hedonistic in nature. 

Maltesers Teasers winning top chocolate this year is unsurprising. Not only is chocolate a natural aphrodisiac but Maltesers have always played on this fact with their sexy hallmark television adverts. Such as the risque ads from the mid-2000’s with comedy duo Katherine Parkinson and Amanda Abbington – where the ladies would go on to do something a little naughty after proclaiming that eating Maltesers was not naughty enough!’

You’re less likely to catch Covid if you’re Cheating on your Spouse!

* More cheats have had the coronavirus vaccine than the general population

* Affair-seekers use vaccine protection as an excuse to have extra-marital sex!

* 71% of adulterers would not have sex with someone who has not been fully vaccinated

* Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people

IllicitEncounters.com has surveyed 6000 of its members (split equally by male and female respondents) and found that a higher proportion of cheats have been fully inoculated compared to the general public.
 

Around 80% of adults in the United Kingdom have received both doses of a coronavirus vaccine, compared to a whopping 94% of adulterers who claim to be double jabbed.

84% of adulterers admit that the desire to have an affair played a part in them wanting to get vaccinated.
 

Vaccine take-up in affair seekers is high because they want to cheat safely on their partners. 

90% of vaccinated cheats ask potential partners if they are vaccinated too. A further 71% of double vaxxed love rats have claimed they would only sleep with someone who is also fully vaccinated. 

Harry, 49, Bristol, a member using the site said ‘People don’t even bat an eyelid if you ask them if they’ve had the vaccine – it’s become part and parcel with hi, how are you? Where are you from? Are you vaccinated? Covid isn’t over, the cases are still at record highs. I for one won’t see anyone that isn’t vaccinated. It’s like having unprotected sex. Stupid.’

Tricia, 53, Manchester, another member said  ‘My marriage is more of a friendship and I’d accepted that – but I can’t accept a life without any physical intimacy. After getting the Pfizer vaccine last January, I started having an affair with a married surgeon ten years younger than me. It was just what I needed. We were both protected from covid and felt it was safe to see each other. I would not have considered having an affair with someone that might put my family in danger.’

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert at IllicitEncounters.com, said “There’s a whole new meaning to practicing safe sex in 2021 – no jab no nooky! Adulterers are safety conscious – not wanting to spread the virus. Now with booster jabs extended to all those over 40 the rate of people having affairs is likely to peak again before Christmas.”

Star signs MOST likely to cheat!

* Capricorns crowned number one cheats of 2021

* Cancer are the most faithful star sign

* 14% of adulterers are cheating on a Gemini 

* Data released by the UK’s top extra-marital dating site IllicitEncounters.com
 

Is adultery written in the stars?

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site, analysed data of 120,000 of its married members and found that we may well be fated to cheat.        

If the constellation of stars on your birthday can predict an individual’s characteristics, who is to say they can’t predict one’s future lovelife? 
 

Beware of the Capricorn as they are crowned the number one cheats of the year with a colossal 17% of loverats belonging to this astrological sign. 
 

Disloyal Libra’s come in second place with 15% of Libra’s cheating on their partners. 
 

Sagittarius takes third most likely to stray with 13% of adulterers belonging to this sign. 
 

Looking for commitment? Cancer is crowned the most devoted star sign of the year with a mere 2% of Cancers cheating.
 

Other star signs less likely to cheat are Aquarius (4%), Virgo (4%) and Scorpio (3%).
 

2000 members were also asked what star sign their spouse was, and a mammoth 14% reported that they are married to a Gemini. 
 

George, 51 years old, a Capricorn on IlliictEncounters.com said ‘I’ve always found it difficult not to cheat. I have had discreet relationships with several different women over the years and each time I would tell myself it would be the last time. I love my wife, I believe in every other way I am a good husband. Sometimes I just need a break from it all and I am still very, very attracted to other women.’
 

Julia, 40 years old, a Libra using the website said ‘I am a typical Libra. Playful, adventurous. All I really want is a partner in crime. My husband is a Gemini. When we met he put on this act that he found me mesmerising. Nowadays he doesn’t pay me any attention. I’m having an affair with an Aries and I don’t regret it. I deserve to feel wanted.’
 

Sex and relationships expert for IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni, said ‘Capricorns are bad at monogamy – avoid at all costs! Capricorns are workaholics, they are the most competitive and ambitious of all the signs. A cheating Capricorn may be suffering from burnout and using an affair as an excuse to relieve stress, either that or they feel they deserve an affair after the relentless day to day grind.

Libra’s are social butterflies. They love nothing more than being in the company of others and feel anxious when they are alone. People pleasers, Libra’s might engage in an affair just to feel loved and desired.

Why is everybody cheating on a Gemini? Perhaps it’s their two faces.

Want a devoted partner that won’t cheat on you? Marry a Cancer – the most loyal star sign of them all.’

UK’s Sexiest Over 60’s Women 2021 Revealed

* Jane Seymour tops annual list of UK’s sexiest women over 60 

* Followed by Susan Sarandon and Julie Christie

* Joan Collins is the oldest sexy over 60 at 88 years old

* 1 in 3 men prefer to date someone older than them

* Poll comes from 1000 members on llicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading married dating site
 

The late and great Bette Davis was once quoted saying ‘Old age ain’t no place for sissies’ and she was right. Smouldering good looks get you places when you’re young – especially in Hollywood. But what about as you get older?
 

Aging gracefully is no mean feat and to reach the 60 plus milestone and still look fabulous? Well that deserves accolades of its own. Which is precisely why IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people, polled 1000 men to find out who they find sexy over 60, and here are the results.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni has compiled and commented on the results below:


British-American actress and Hollywood icon Jane Seymour comes in first place with 18% of the vote. Former Bond girl Solitaire in Live and Let Die (1973) alongside James Bond (Roger Moore). You would be forgiven for mistaking Jane Seymour as somebody a lot younger than her youthful 70, she entirely defies the hands of time and continues to be a sex symbol even now.

Close runner up is 75 year old award winning American actress Susan Sarandon (16%). Known for her roles in movies such as Thelma & Louise (1991) and Dead Man Walking (1995).This hot red-headed beauty once quoted as saying ‘Sex – that’s good for your skin, right?’ must sure have had a lot of it in her lifetime as her envious appearance has entirely evaded any serious signs of ageing. 

At 81 years old and third place, with 13% of the vote, is the beautiful British actress Julie Christie. A celebrity icon from the sixties known for her roles in movies such as Darling (1965), Doctor Zhivago (1965) and more recently as Madam Rosmerta in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004). 

The legendary British actress Helen Mirren comes in fourth place at 76 years old (11%). Critically acclaimed for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen (2006) as well as her breakthrough role as detective Jane Tennison in television series Prime Suspect (1991–96, 2003, and 2006). Not only is she insanely gorgeous for her age – she has impeccable style to boot. No wonder British men are besotted by her.

Fifth place goes to 63 year old American actress, the sensational Michelle Pfeiffer (9%), regularly recognized as one of the most attractive women of all time since the eighties.

The Kardashian’s mum, 65 year old Kris Jenner comes in at sixth place (7%).

English actress and author Joan Collins, the oldest over 60 to make the cut at 88 years old, takes 6% of the vote. It’s fabulous to see a woman pushing 90 make the top 10 and in a very honourable seventh place.

The fabulous blonde bombshell Britt Ekland, Swedish actress and singer, is in eighth place (4%) at 79 years old.

Second to last is another English actress Julie Andrews in ninth place (3%) and at 86 years old.

Last place and just about scraping the top 10 sexist over 60’s is the international supermodel, actress and singer from England, Lesley Lawson known by the nickname Twiggy (1%) at 72 years old. 

Out of the respondents surveyed a whopping 34% of men also agreed that they prefered dating somebody older than them.

UK’s Sexiest Politicians For 2021 Revealed

* Johnny Mercer and Dehenna Davison top annual list of UK’s sexiest politicians 

* Conservatives Sajid Javid and Theresa Coffey voted least desirable 

* Conservatives are the overall sexiest male and female politicians 

* Poll comes from 2000 members on IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading married dating site 


When it comes to political opinions we’ve all got one, but what is hard to tell is what is truly right or wrong. One thing is for certain though and that’s who is crowned sexiest politician in the UK 2021.

The recent survey was conducted with 2000 adulterers, split equally by male and female respondents, on IllicitEncounters.com, the U.K’s leading dating website for married people. 

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni has compiled and commented on the results below:

In the men’s sexiest category, new entry Johnny Mercer comes in first place with 22% of the vote, dethroning last year’s heartthrob Dishy Rishi Sunak who has toppled down to second sexiest. There is no denying it, Johnny Mercer has smouldering good looks and charm – in fact with Daniel Craig stepping down from the Mr.Bond franchise – some may be forgiven to think that Mr. Bond, Johnny Bond has a good ring to it – especially with his military background.

Close second with 20% of the vote is Conservative Rishi Sunak. Since replacing Sajid Javid as chancellor last year he has quickly become a household name earning himself the nickname Dishy Rishy. Not only is he a very good-looking candidate, the country simply trusts him to get the job done – and boy does Rishi deliver. No wonder women all over the UK are pining over him.

In third place is our prime minister, Conservative leader Boris Johnson (17%). British women just cannot make their mind up about BoJo – circa ‘19 he’s hot, circa ‘20 he’s not and now he’s back to bedable in 2021. It’s not easy to appease everybody as leader of the country and the pandemic really hindered dear Johnson’s reputation for a while, however, he’s turned it around and become a hit with the ladies once again. 

In fourth place, down from third last year, is Conservative Tobias Ellwood with 13% of the vote. Ex-army captain in the The Royal Green Jackets, I can imagine many women picture Tobias Ellwood in uniform – a real life action man. Indeed, he does scrub up well in a suit too. Refined, polite and possessing a very British sophistication – no wonder the nation adores him.

Fifth place goes to the mayor of Manchester and the only Labour candidate to make the hot list this year Andy Burnham (10%). A mayor of the people affectionately dubbed ‘King of the North’ Andy Burnham won the hearts of Manchester locals as he fought for funding last year during the coronavirus pandemic.

Last but not least is the deputy prime minister, Conservative, Dominic Raab (8%). 

Participants of the survey were also asked to vote for the least sexy politicians. With our Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid Conservative MP, selected as the least desirable male with an overwhelming 31% of the vote. He may have given us our freedom in the pandemic but sadly he has not been repaid in votes regarding his sex appeal.

Second least sexy is Labour’s Ed Miliband (19%) and Labour’s Sadiq Khan (17%) in third. 

Liberal Democrat Ed Davey came in fourth least desirable (15%).

The only remaining politician from last year’s least sexy list, although dethroned from last year’s number one spot, is Conservative’s Michael Gove in fifth with 6% of the vote. Last year satirical show Spitting Image did him an honour of creating a puppet in his name – which Gove said he was ‘incredibly flattered’ over – though we cannot imagine what is so flattering about a face made out of genitals. Suffice to say, the ladies aren’t all that interested in going clubbing with Gove at the Bohemia nightclub in Aberdeen any time soon.

Last but not least in the least sexy male politicians is Jacob Rees-Mogg (4%) in sixth position overall. If he can fall asleep on the frontbench at the commons perhaps he would do the same on a date, not very impressive – hey?

For the female entrants in the most sexy politician poll the overall winner is new entry Conservative Dehenna Davison (29%) knocking last year’s winner – Labour’s Lisa Nandy off the podium.

Labour’s Dr Rosena Allin Khan, Shadow Secretary of State for Mental Health, holds firm second place two years in a row, up 1% since last year at 21% of the vote. Dr Rosena Allin Khan took upon herself to pull 12 hour shifts in St Georges Hospital in Tooting to help with the covid-19 crisis last year – and absolutely deserves recognition, it’s wonderful she is being noticed by the public for her selfless acts of care and duty.

Last year’s winner Lisa Nandy, Labour MP, drops down to third overall sexiest female politician with 17% of the vote. What’s not to like? Lisa Nandy is clearly popular, sporting that girl-next-door, could do no wrong look – no wonder British men are attracted to her. 

The former care minister, Conservative’s Helen Whately places fourth sexiest female politician (16%). Perhaps coming onto this year’s list as a sympathy vote for the bullying she endured from Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.

First minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon is the fifth sexiest female politician (6%). She is firm but kind and really gives the impression that she cares about her people.  

Conservative Victoria Atkins, Minister of State for Prisons and Probation, comes in sixth place with 5% of the vote. 

In the female category, the least sexy politician award goes to Conservative’s Thérèse Coffey (23%). If Thérèse Coffey’s mortifying duet with Matt Hancock of “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen is anything to go by – then we are really not that surprised. Although not crowned the Karaoke Queen at least she has come first in one competition. 

Another Conservative, Home Secretary, Priti Patel comes in second least sexy female politician (19%) – bumped up from fourth least desirable last year. Let’s be honest, Priti Patel or ‘the wicked witch of the south’ is actually not that bad looking but has some pretty unpopular and often controversial views which could contribute to her votes as least desirable. Some of which include her heartless stance on immigration and criminals. Once quoted as wanting the death penalty introduced – you can be forgiven for not wanting to date her.

Remaining in third least desirable two years in a row and with 18% of the vote is Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities Anneliese Dodds.

Fourth place is Labour’s Angela Rayner (14%), followed by Anne-Marie Trevelyan in fifth (10%) and lastly Liberal Democrat Wera Hobhouse takes sixth place (3%)

Biggest Spike in Autumn Affairs in Eighteen Years as Kids are back in School

*The biggest autumn affairs spike in 18 years now that kids are back in school

* Bored housewives account for 59% of the registration surge 

* More than half of adulterers have been faithful over the summer, though 70% of them suffered a total summer sex drought

* Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading dating site for married people

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people has seen an exponential growth in married people seeking affairs during the last three weeks as bored husbands and wives look to engage in illicit activity now that kids are back in school.

The autumn affairs spike is observed each year that kids go back to school, however 2021 accounts for the biggest rise in September registrations since records began 18 years ago, with a 44% increase in the first three weeks of September. 

Bored housewives account for 59% of the registration surge – suggesting that more of the child care burden belongs to mothers – who after a summer of sacrifices are finally able to use September as an opportunity to unwind with an illicit lover. It seems that once the kids are back in school, mums go back to bed with other people’s husbands.

The extra-marital dating site surveyed 600 recently active members and found that more than half of married couples (54%) had been faithful over the summer, but not from lack of trying as a phenomenal 84% of those who didn’t cheat said they wanted to have an affair but found it impossible to engage in one during the summer holidays.

Out of the 46% of members that were loyal during the school holidays, a whopping 70% said they hadn’t even had sex with their spouse – this summer sex draught is notorious for sowing the seed of the autumn affairs rise.

Henrietta, 55, London 

‘I could walk through the house naked and my husband wouldn’t even notice. I’ve accepted that our relationship is no longer physical and that’s okay. Otherwise he is a great partner and father to our kids and we really like to focus our attention on the family during the school holidays. We were actually lucky enough to go to Greece this year. We’ve had a nice summer. Now the kids are back in school and I’m looking my best with a tan – I am ready to pounce haha on some new fling for this quarter.”

Sylvia, 40, Suffolk

I save most of my annual leave for the school holidays as me and my husband both work and need to make sure that childcare is covered. I love spending time with the kids but the summer really steals away any real adult time left. My husband is constantly stressed and complaining. It’s nice to just forget about it all with someone who can relate. I don’t intend to ever leave my family, I just need a bit of a release.

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com, said “We’re seeing a phenomenal spike in autumn affairs now the kids are back in school. It can also be assumed that the surge is higher than normal due to covid and lockdown fever – people need an escape, they need a release from the mayhem of the last 18 months.

Having said that, autumn is always cesspit for infidelity. Schools reopening allow parents much more freedom. I’m not surprised adulterers have been faithful during the summer – there’s been little to no chance to get away. Now daddy can drop off the kids to daycare and engage in a dalliance of his own.

Look – we all know summer is adventure time for our children – but autumn is when stressed out spouses are finally allowed to go out and play.”

You know what they say about men with big feet? They’re more likely to cheat!


* Men with big feet are more likely to cheat

* Shoe size 10-10.5 is the size most likely to be unfaithful

* Men with shoe size 7.5 and under are the most faithful in Britain

* The findings come from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

It was once rumoured that the size of a man’s feet meant they had big… socks!

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people, surveyed 2000 of their male members and found a direct correlation between a man’s shoe size and adultery.

A man who is well endowed has big feet – or so they say. Now the proof for that particular myth is in the pudding, what is certainly true though is that men with big feet are more likely to cheat, whereas men with teeny tiny tootsies are tons more trustworthy. 

The results found that only 4% of cheating men have a shoe size of 7.5 and under, followed by 8% shoe size 8 – 8.5 and 22% of men with shoe size 9 – 9.5.

Now on the larger scale, over a quarter of adulterous men have shoe size 10 – 10.5 (27%) – making this the most common shoe size of a cheating casanova! 

18% of cheating men have a shoe size of 11-11.5, followed by 15% between 12 – 12.5, lastly 6% have a shoe size of 13 and over. 

Collectively 66% of male love rats have a shoe size 10 or over, with 10-10.5 being the most popular sizes for adulterous men.

The results of the study also correlate with various celebrity cheats, Tiger Woods, Hugh Grant, Lamar Odom and Arnold Schwarzenegger all sporting a shoe size of 10 and over.

Sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni, said ‘Whilst some may argue that there is more to an affair than a man’s shoe size, the data doesn’t lie. 66% of male love rats have a shoe size of 10 or over. 

Why do men with big feet cheat? Perhaps because men with bigger feet tend to also be tall – so they’re likely to get more attention than their shorter counterparts. Big shoes equals big everywhere right? Women fancy Mr.Big – doesn’t mean they should marry him though!

Well now you know – shoe size really does matter when looking for a faithful partner.’

2 out of 3 adulterers have a happy marriage – but cheat anyway

* 2 out of 3 adulterers have a happy marriage
* British loverats claim  ‘An affair improved my marriage’ 
* A cheating husband or wife would be heartbroken if their spouse was also unfaithful – and would be unlikely to forgive them
*Results from a survey of 800 adulterers from the UK’s leading married dating site IllicitEncounters.com

Unhappy people cheat – wrong! Infidelity strikes in happy marriages. 

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people, surveyed 800 people currently having an affair to discover what led them to cheat in the first place and the results will shock you. 

Turns out that a marriage does not have to be a trainwreck for cheating to be prevalent as 67% of men and women admit they are actually happy in their marriages. 

77% of the respondents claim an affair has even improved their marriage.

79% of those polled said they would never consider leaving their partner even if they met somebody they really liked.

94% of people currently cheating on their spouse would feel heartbroken if they discovered their husband or wife was also cheating on them, and a whopping 82% said they could not forgive the transgression. 

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com, said ‘I’m not entirely shocked that happy people cheat, if you’re unhappy your mind is elsewhere – there’s no way you could compartmentalise an affair. People in unhappy marriages usually lack confidence, they can be stressed and depressed – not really first date material. 

Often our members come from happy homes where the spark may have gone out – they still get on with their husbands or wives and enjoy their marital lives. Adulterers don’t want to leave their partners, they just want some extra spice and adventure in their lives.’

Members of IllicitEncounters.com speak out below: 

Natalie, 40, Sussex

‘My husband and I have built the perfect life together. I adore my husband. He is good-looking, successful, a great father – and totally devoted to our family. Jack’s the polar opposite, he keeps me on my toes. He’s flirty, cheeky and kinky. At home I have love, safety and stability. With Jack I have lust, adventure and spontaneity. I think it’s natural for us to be curious and crave variety. Jack is my lover, nothing more, he is not husband material. I wouldn’t trade my husband for the world.’

Jamie, 55, Manchester

‘Me and my wife get on really well, we have a strong connection and lots in common, the same morals and values – well, besides my affair, which if she found out would destroy her. I have had a number of affairs over the years because our sex life is non existent. We still sleep in the same bed, kiss, cuddle. It’s rare it goes any further than that. I’m fit and healthy and I’m not ready to give up on sex.’

Don’t get mad, get even – how a third of women cheat in revenge after their partner strayed previously, according to a new survey

* A quarter of men ‘revenge cheat’ after discovering their lover has been unfaithful;

* The vast majority of revenge cheaters (82%) feel justified in having an affair to ‘get their own back’ on lover’s betrayal;

* Big rise in revenge cheating since the end of lockdown as new freedoms spark a surge in affairs;

* Results are from a new survey of 2,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading affairs site

A third of women cheat in revenge after their partners previously strayed, according to a new survey

Slightly fewer men (26%) also ‘revenge cheat’ to get their own back from an earlier betrayal.

The vast majority of revenge cheaters (72%) said they felt justified in having an affair because their partner erred first.

More men (54%) than women (48%) are likely to own up to a revenge affair to show their partner the error of their ways.

The most common way that people revenge cheat is through meeting a new partner on a dating website or app, chosen by 42% of respondents, followed sleeping with a former lover or friend (28%), contact through social media (12%), a work romance (10%) and a pick-up at a bar or club (8%).

There has been a 12% rise in revenge cheating since the end of lockdown as the new freedoms sparking a surge in affairs. The results are revealed in a new survey of 2,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading affairs site.

Being caught did not stop 44% of cheats from carrying on seeing a lover, despite telling their partner the affair was over.

The survey found that less than a quarter of people (23%) end their relationship after discovering an affair.

Far more (30%) stay with their partner and then get their revenge by having an affair of their own.

The survey found that a third of couples (32%) used lockdown to make a fresh start while stuck at home together for 18 months.

That involved confessing to a past fling for 13% of women and 10% of men.

IllicitiEncounters.com sex and relationship expert Jessica Leoni said: “Revenge cheating has never been more popular.

“More people are taking the view: don’t get mad, get even, and concluding that the best way to get over an affair is not by being a doormat and accepting it but by getting out there and avenging it.

“The last two months have seen a surge in revenge cheating as people who have discovered past betrayals during lockdown and used the new freedoms to get their own back.”

IllicitEncounters has enjoyed its busiest month for new registrations in a decade as unhappy spouses use the end of lockdown to have some fun.

Another factor in the surge has been Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s affair, with men in particular encouraged by him cheating on his wife to seek a new relationship.

Every day around 30,000 people are having an affair on IllicitEncounters and more than a million people have registered with the site since it was launched 18 years ago.

Top 5 ways people revenge cheat

1 Seeking new partner on a dating site or app

2 With a former lover or friend

3 Connecting with a new partner through social media

4 Work romance

5 Pick-up in pub or club

Case Study

“Sex with the ex was even better the second time round:” rampant bar manager Chloe bedded the boy she lost her virginity to 15 years later

* The randy pair were reunited after meeting on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading affairs site

A rampant bar manager has told how she bedded the boy she lost her virginity to 15 years later – after they were reunited on a cheating site.

Chloe, 30, from Stevenage, Herts, was keen to have an affair after the sex in her long-term relationship went stale after the birth of her two sons.

And she was stunned when she went looking for a ‘bit on the side’ on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading affairs site, to discover her first love Paul, 31, was also trying to cheat at the same time.

Chloe said: “I messaged him immediately and said: ‘Fancy seeing you here! What a small world.’

“He got back to me in minutes and within an hour we were arranging to meet up at a hotel for sex.

“We were both curious to see how we had each changed and whether the sex would be as good the second time around.

“Well, I can confirm that it was even better – we had both learned a few new tricks since we were at school!

“It was great seeing Paul again after all these years and we slept together a few more times after that first encounter but we split up the first time for a good reason and we knew we didn’t want to leave our partners for each other.

“Having an affair was much more fun and had no consequences for our partners and our children.”

Chloe had settled down with security manager Ian, 34, the man she dated after splitting with Paul.

She said: “Paul was my first love and we fell in love at school and were both virgins when we first made love.

“After that, we were rampant for the next two years and I had the best sex of my life with him.

“We split up after leaving school when Paul went to university and I pursued a new career working in pubs and clubs.

“Paul moved abroad and I thought I would never see him again.

“I met Ian and decided to have a family.”

Everything was fine with Ian for ten years before things got boring after they started a family.

Chloe said: “The relationship became a bit of a slog and we both stopped making the effort.

“Ian put on weight and I stopped fancying him. I didn’t want to split up the family but I did want the excitement of a new relationship.

“I went on IllicitEncounters the first time a couple of years ago and ended up having a year long affair with an insurance manager.

“He was stuck in a sexless marriage, too, and we had a lot of fun.

“I took a bit of break when we split up and Covid happened and then went back on the site to discover Paul was back in the UK and looking to cheat.

“Since we split up the second time, I have been seeing another man who works in IT. It suits me to have affairs and not get heavy with anyone.”

Brits Vote on the World’s Sexiest Foreign Accents 

* Britain votes French the sexiest female foreign accent in the world for women and Italian for men

* 5 out of 6 Brits think an accent makes someone more (or less!) attractive

* More than half of us have broken up with someone we fancied just because we didn’t like their accent

* The results come as part of a survey of 1200 people on lllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people.

You’ve probably heard of love at first sight, but what about love at first sound? Turns out a person’s voice can be a massive turn on as Brits find some accents more attractive than others.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people, polled 1200 men and women to discover Britain’s favourite foreign accents. Sex and relationships expert for the website, Jessica Leoni has compiled and commented on the results below:

83% of the respondents agreed that a person’s accent can make them more or less attractive.

The saying ‘you were so attractive until you opened your mouth’ – rings true when it comes to accents. As a whopping 53% of men and women have actually broken up with someone they fancied because they did not like their accent.

40% of people have consciously toned down their accent when dating. 

In first place for sexiest female foreign accents, as voted by men, is the ‘language of love’ French with 26% of the vote – très bien. Everything about the French exudes romance – the dialect has that mysterious je ne se quois that leave men falling into hopeless devotion. Take famous actress Léa Seydoux for example – set to return to the screens as Madeleine Swann a love interest of Mr. Bond, James Bond – Léa Seydoux french accent is absolutely mesmerising. 

Spanish comes in close second sexiest female foreign accent (23%), such as the award-winning Spanish actress Penelope Cruz, and actress Úrsula Corberó best known for her role in Money Heist as Tokyo.

Third place goes to Poland (13%), with Polish being the highest non-British population residing in the UK it comes as no surprise they would fare well.

Fourth place goes to Italian with 11%, fifth place is Dutch (8%) and sixth place is German (6%).

Second to last is Swedish in seventh place (4%)  and Irish eighth and last place (2%).

In the men’s category, Italy scores yet again following their euro victory, British women found Italian to be the number one most desirable accent on a man with 24% of the vote. There is a plethora of famous Italian men, from designer Giorgio Armani, to footballers Andrea Pirlo or Gianluigi Donnarumma – the list goes on, even Italian names sound sexy on the tongue. 

Second sexiest male accent is Spanish (20%). Famous Spanish men include actors Miguel Silvestre, famed for his portrayal of villain Franklin Jurado in Narcos, or Alvaro Morte, El Professor, in Money Heist.

Irish comes in third place for sexiest male accents (12%) – such as the likes of actors Liam Neelson, Cillian Murphy and Colin Farrel. 

Fourth place sexiest male accent is Canadian (11%), followed by South African in fifth overall place (9%).

French is dethroned as the language of love for men coming in 6th place (7%). Famous male French celebrities include actor Vincent Cassel or footballer Kylian Mbappé.

Seventh place goes to Greek (6%), second to last is Portuguese in seventh place (5%)  and lastly Australian in eighth overall sexiest male accents (2%).
