Guinness a kiss! reveal top drinks


Could your partner’s fridge stacked full of his favourite beer tell you how likely he is to stay faithful?

A new survey from the UK’s leading dating site for married people has revealed the drinking habits of men looking for an extra-marital tryst. The survey of Illicit Encounter’s male members were questioned on their beer preferences and regular drinking habits.

Despite not being a ‘beer’ per se, the number one choice for a swift one down the local was a pint of Guinness – this is probably down to it’s smooth taste, texture and perceived health benefits.

Spokesperson for; Mike Taylor said, “The results of this study highlights that our members have a taste for quality and the refined. They are not prepared to compromise on basis of price. It is unsurprising that stout, rather than lager or ale, was the top choice – when you consider that Guinness has been brewing for over 240 years. Despite it being perceived as a ‘meal in a glass’ in some quarters, Guinness in fact, only contains 198 calories per pint, making it less calorific than orange juice or skimmed milk. There is also good news for female members as stout is seen as an aphrodisiac in some countries.”

The second most popular choice was Corona Extra, with Peroni Nastro Azzurro coming in third. Both regarded as premium or luxury lagers, and strides ahead of countless other brands in terms of popularity. The Belgians may have more cultural acceptance to infidelity, but Stella Artois did not tantalise our members proving to be the least popular choice.

The study also revealed that men who are looking for or who are engaging in an extra-marital relationship, consume less alcohol than their monogamous counterparts, rarely drinking more than the recommended weekly allowance. This could be due to the fact they are more health conscious and concerned about the repercussions of getting overly inebriated.
