Sexual Healing Should Be Banned At Office Christmas Parties!

mxljbylrqjbkdg5p6tvu

Marvin Gaye’s 80’s hit Sexual Healing has been voted the song most likely to get office party goers in trouble this Christmas. Over 1000 members of the UK’s leading married dating siteIllicitEncounters.com responded to the question which 80’s love song would get you in trouble if played at your office Christmas Party? The poll was part of a larger study into Christmas party behaviour.

Unsurprisingly both men and women agreed that Sexual Healing was the song that was most likely to lead them to getting frisky with a co-worker, making it the most dangerous song in the DJ’s record collection at this years office Christmas party.

Mike Taylor, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said; “At Christmas parties people are surrounded by people they work with and sometimes form close bonds. Adding to that, alcohol is flowing freely, guards are down and people relaxed and uninhibited. This is when the DJ is likely to influence your actions with their choice of music. It isn’t surprising that Sexual Healing topped our poll, a survey by Yahoo Music back in 2006 voted it as the best song to have sex to. However we would warn against getting overly close to a colleague as in a recent study, over 80% of employers admitted that having an office based romance would affect the career prospects of those involved. ”

The second placed song for men was George Michael’s number 1 hit Careless Whisper and the women voted for the classic ballad Take My Breath Away by Berlin, featured in the movieTopGun as their runner up.

Other songs that ranked high on the list of ‘danger music’ this Christmas are Whitesnake’s Is This Love? Chris de Burgh’s Lady in Red and Foreigner’s Waiting For A Girl Like You.

Many parts of the UK have been affected by the torrential rain and flooding over the last few days. Even under these challenging weather conditions, members of the UK’s largest married dating site IllicitEncounters.com have still been able to log on to check their messages and let their lovers know that they are ok. The site has seen the number of visits from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets increase considerably in the areas worst affected.

This month has seen some of the worst floods of the year in many areas of the country. According to a Downing Street spokesman 300 properties were flooded in just 24 hours in England and Wales alone, and over 1000 homes have now been flooded. In St Asaph in North Wales the River Elwy rose to 6ft above its normal level with disastrous effects.

Rosie Freeman-Jones Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said: “It has been a nasty few days weather-wise and we wish to extend our sympathies to all those who have been affected by the extreme weather conditions. But thankfully due to the rise in the number of people having smart phones members have been able to access the site and send and receive messages.”

In the last year the UK has shown a large increase in smartphone usage from 30 to 45% of the total population. Also the study by google found that the demographics of smartphone owners are shifting, smartphone ownership has risen sharply for those aged over 45.

Conditions like this highlight our reliance on the internet and communication tools that we have come to take for granted, thanks to the rise in tablet computing and smartphone usage people are still able to stay in contact no matter the weather.

Women Seeking Affairs Are On The Increase

s9azkwtkofh6lcf7ttn8

Women Seeking Affairs Are On The Increase.

Research conducted over the past few years has shown that female infidelity is on the rise – women are now looking for fulfilment outside of their marriage more than ever before.

A recent study by researchers at the Kinsey Institute, Indiana University and the University of Guelph revealed that since the 1990s, women who reported to ever having an affair has risen over 50% from 12% to 19%. Where as men have remained at a stable 23% since the early 90’s.

Mike Taylor, spokesperson for leading Extra-Marital dating site IllicitEncounters.com commented; “We have seen this trend emerging over the last few years with more and more women signing up and looking for an extra marital relationship. It now seems that the infidelity gender divide is closing and women are feeling more empowered and able to seek the fulfilment they want and deserve. Women and men are coming to realise that a monogamous marriage may not be the only option available to them and they are seeking to find like minded additional partners.”

There are now more women in the work place than ever before giving them greater financial independence. Coupled with the growth of the internet, this has played a massive part in enabling women to close the adultery gap on men. They are now more free and able to search for a prospective lover from their laptop. Twenty years ago there were no internet dating sites and women at home during the day had far less opportunity to meet someone who wasn’t the postman or milkman.

The study also showed that if you include all romantic misdemeanour’s such as kissing, women are just as likely to cheat as their male counterparts. If this trend continues we could see adultery becoming as acceptable in society the same way divorce has become acceptable over the last 20 years.

Do You Want To Feel Younger and More Attractive? Have An Affair

qwnreqfi3jpnxbcvypao

Ladies wanting to boost their self esteem are moving away from having their hair done, taking a quick trip to a spa, or even investing in some Botox. A study by leading extra-marital dating site IllicitEncounters.com reveals the new trend for women wanting to look and feeling younger is to have an affair.

The survey found that the majority of female philanderers do it “to feel attractive again”. The site, surveyed over 700 of its female members on the reasons they chose to embark on an affair. Over a third of respondents confessed that they joined to find a man who would make them feel sexy and attractive again.

The second most popular reason women gave as to why they pursue an affair was “For the thrill of it”, cited by 16% of respondents. Where as 15% of women respondence said they were simply looking for “more sex”.

IllicitEncounters.com Spokesperson Rosie Freeman-Jones commented: “It will probably shock some people that ‘sex’, as a reason for pursuing an affair, was so low down on the list. Many women are just longing to feel attractive again, after years without a single compliment from their spouse. Far too many husbands appear to take their wives for granted with some married men finding any form of romantic gesture nye on impossible, leaving their other half to find their lust for life renewed by finding someone who finds them attractive and isn’t afraid to tell them so”

One example is Michelle*, a teacher from Portsmouth, says the survey results reflect her feelings about joining the site. “My husband pays me little attention; I can’t remember the last time he told me I looked nice. The need to feel wanted, to feel desired, just took over last year, and here I am. I am still a sexual being – I needed someone to acknowledge that.”

Other reasons that women gave for embarking on an extra marital tryst were curiosity, boredom with their current situation and the desire to feel in love again.

£2.5Billion A Year Spent On Office Affairs

bbd3e1oey4xb4bzlduo1

A study commissioned by leading extra-marital affairs website IllicitEncounters.com in conjunction with NotAtWork.co.uk has revealed that office romances are costing British Businesses £2.5 billion a year.

The survey conducted in October 2012, asked business owners and employees to answer questions relating to the effect of Work-based Romances on businesses. It had some startling results, of the individuals questioned 75% admitted to thinking about engaging in an office romance and 54% already had, with a shocking 27% having done it on more than one occasion.

84% of individuals stated that it would affect their productivity within the workplace, costing their companies thousands. In fact in the last 12 months, the average cost to each business surveyed from issues relating to office romances was over £65,000. So the total cost to the UK companies in excess of £2.5 billion.

Mike Taylor, Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, said “£2.5 Billion is an insane amount of money for companies to be spending or losing due to office-based romances, whilst most UK businesses don’t have contractual rules against employees fraternising, over 50% of the businesses surveyed acknowledged the financial implications as they would actively recommend using a dating site to find romance rather than having their staff seek it out in the workplace.”

However, some businesses are still failing to recognise the full magnitude of the problem. Although it would seem too drastic an action for many UK employers to introduce a morality clause within an employment contract. Some large US companies have had them for some time such as Disney who recently spent £2.5 Billion on Lucas Films, some of which probably came from money saved by having a morality clause.

The Daily Mail is the No:1 choice for cheating housewives

yuzyby4sbzsj2wzlqlir

A new survey conducted by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading Extra-marital affairs, has revealed that over 54% of female members list The Daily Mail as their newspaper of choice. It appears that women are not just content with reading about the tawdry affairs of celebrities and politicians, but are in fact actively seeking out one of their own.

The men’s newspaper of choice of newspaper was split more evenly between The Times 32% and The Telegraph with 27%. This is unsurprising, as a large proportion of male members on the site are successful city workers who are more attracted to the content of broadsheet papers.

IllicitEncounters.com spokesperson Mike Taylor said: “I am sure it will be disappointing for some of the newspapers writers to hear that some of their readers are not upholding the same moral standards that they are famous for preaching in their stories. It could be argued that, by them doing so, these papers are having a reverse psychological effect and actually helping to push people towards having an affair as an act of rebellion.”

The survey also revealed that only a small number of male members admitted to regularly reading tabloid newspapers, The Sun being the most popular and garnering only 8% of the male vote. It appears that men are choosing to spend their spare time online seeking their own extra-marital liaisons instead of reading about yet another footballer’s indiscretions off the pitch.

Behaving like Bond can cost you your job

rzo7mx71zfnqjfgqny6e

Having cheated death after being shot in the chest, surviving a parachute malfunction and rising to the top of the CIA. David Petraeus will attest, that unlike fictional spy James Bond, in the real world it’s not a good idea to use your spy charm to seduce the ladies, as getting caught having an affair in the CIA can help you go from 007 to P45.

Gen Petraeus was forced to resign last week, after an FBI investigation uncovered that he had engaged in an extra-marital affair after 37 years of marriage.

Research conducted by IllicitEncounters.com in conjunction with NotAtWork.co.uk has shown that having an affair with someone you work with can have severe affects on you career prospects. Of the business owners who responded to the survey 81% said that having a relationship within the workplace would negatively affect the employment prospects of the individuals involved. A whopping 84% of employees admitted that getting frisky with a colleague would led to a fall in their productivity in the workplace and a shocking 75% of workers admitted they had considered having an office-based tryst.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Mike Taylor said: “Having an affair with someone you work with can lead to all sorts of issues. Unlike Petraeus the average worker may not have the FBI poking around their private lives, however that doesn’t mean that it won’t affect their career. That is why over half the businesses surveyed would recommend using a dating site to find romance rather than having their staff seek it out in the workplace”

IllicitEncounters.com is the UK’s leading extra-marital dating site with over 700,000 members and offers its users a secure and discreet service to help them look for a fulfilling relationship, even if the FBI is investigating you.

New Study: Office Based Romance Cost British Companies Millions

fczjygl4y1mxkkfvn40s (1)

No company wants to have to deal with unnecessary and avoidable costs of situations such as sexual harassment, discrimination, health and safety or unfair dismissal claims against the organisation. As well as costing a fortune these actions can harm the reputation of the business and have an impact on the productivity of the staff.

Leading extra-marital affairs website IllicitEncounters.com, In conjunction with NotAtWork.co.uk, commissioned a series of studies and reports to investigate the economic impact on businesses caused by affairs within the workplace.

Two surveys were conducted in October 2012, asking individuals and business owners to answer questions relating to the effect of Office Romances on careers and impact on businesses.

Over a thousand individuals responded to the ‘Are Office Romances a good idea’ survey and over 200 businesses to the ‘Impact of Office Romances on UK Businesses’ survey.

Individuals, when asked if they had ever engaged in an office romance.

  • 75% of respondents have at least considered it.
  • 54% have engaged in at least 1 office romance.
  • 27% have engaged in an office romance more than once.

When asked if their employers had a contractual morality clause forbidding office relationships.

  • 6% stated that their employer had it as part of the terms and conditions of their employment.
  • 35% stated that their employer did not mind at all.

They were then asked if they felt office-based romances can impact on one’s productivity at work.

  • 16% answered ‘Not at all’
  • 84% felt that it would impact productivity at least a little. (38% said it definitely would)

In regards to disciplinary actions related to office romances, 20% of respondents claim that they or a colleague have been disciplined for having a work-place romance.

Businesses taking part in the ‘Impact of Office Romances on UK Businesses’ survey revealed the following:

  • 74% of businesses have no formal or informal policy to discourage staff from engaging in office relationships
  • Only 16% of businesses said that office-based romances had no effect on productivity within their organisation. 48% stated that it would only have minimal impact.
  • Only 19% of businesses stated that an office-based romance would in no way affect the career prospects of those involved.
  • 32% of businesses would consider (or already have) a morality clause in its employment contracts to forbid office romances.
  • 51% of businesses felt recommending employees seek romance outside of their place of work would save them money and improve productivity.
  • In the last 12 months, the average cost to each business from issues relating to office romances was over £65,000. So the total cost to the 200 companies surveyed was in excess of £13 million.

It is interesting then that the majority of businesses acknowledge that office romances can have a negative impact on productivity but over half feel that it is minimal, in contrast to 84% of individuals who stated that it would affect productivity at least a little.

Mike Taylor, Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, said “These are some shocking statistics and we have barely scratched the surface. You will never stop people from developing romantic feelings towards their co-workers which can often lead to a full blown affair. However we offer a discreet and safe online dating platform for those seeking extra marital romances, allowing workers to focus their attention on their work in their work place. ”

Office romances are literally costing UK businesses millions and perhaps too many businesses fail to recognise the magnitude of the impact it has on their organisation. Although a morality clause within an employment contract would seem too drastic an action for many employers, encouraging employees to seek romances outside of work by promoting the use of online dating sites as well as making employees aware of the long term effects an office romance could have on their career can be a more effective and less draconian strategy in refocusing their employees and avoiding costly HR issues.
