With one in ten couples having them, should we really be shocked by affairs?

zshmdsrnpfq5l1fhk99a

It may seem as if there is currently a tidal wave of affairs hitting the headlines, however the UK’s leading extra-marital dating website is reporting that an affair is happening within one in ten marriages – and that’s just on one dating site.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest extra-marital dating website, is celebrating its tenth year this year, and over the last ten years the site has seen consistent growth in the number of people looking to engage in an affair. With over 850,000 members, approximately 6% of the UK’s married population are logging on in search of an extra-marital tryst.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Ava Cooper commented: “I think that everyone can think of someone in their friendship circle who has been unfaithful? Having spoken with the members on the site, I understand the reasons why people look for intimacy outside of their relationship, and the changes in attitudes towards people who have committed adultery has been staggering over the past 10 years. Illicit Encounters started ten years ago to give married people a safe and secure environment to rediscover romance and passion with other like minded individuals, and most importantly – not to judge. It seems that whilst having an affair may still be as taboo as it was ten years ago, more people are understanding of why people may do it.”

Music and Film legends, Sport stars, Royalty and President’s have long been condemned in public for committing adultery, however a change has taken place with celebrities talking openly about the challenges marriage. Gwyneth Paltrow, recently spoke publicly on her understanding of extra marital affairs saying: “I am a great romantic – but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist.
Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs.
It’s like we’re flawed – we’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge.”

Research conducted by IllicitEncounters.com in 2006 showed that only one in eight couples would try and work through an affair; in 2013 the same study revealed that number had over halved – with just one in three couples willing to put in the extra effort required work through an infidelity. The same study showed that in 2006, 82% of people thought that having an affair was the worst thing their partner could do in a relationship, while the 2013 study showed only 57% said infidelity was the worst thing they could do.

Could the scariest thing this Halloween be how sexy your other half is dressing?

xnskoaccnymqbj23oo9z

Research from the UK’s largest married dating site IllicitEncounters.com has revealed that women who are having, or are looking for an extra-marital tryst were far more likely to dress in a more risqué manner.

The survey of 10,000 female members of IllicitEncounters.com showed that an overwhelming number of adulteresses felt more comfortable dressing in sexy outfits since joining the site.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Rosie Freeman-Jones commented: “Halloween is an opportunity to dress up in an outrageously sexy manner without feeling exposed. Anything from PVC cat suits to a naughty nurse outfit is acceptable over Halloween, and for ladies this means they can show their overtly sexual side, without being questioned by their spouses. As much as they may long to whip out the suspenders and PVC on a regular Thursday night, their husbands would surely question their motivation, whereas their lovers would relish the show. Halloween allows a little bit of freedom and the chance to be more daring and liberated.”

A surprising 77% of the women surveyed said that they would be dressing in a more risqué manner this Halloween compared to the last few years. 74% of female members also disclosed that since joining the site they had more confidence, 89% said they felt more attractive and 49% would now be more likely to make the first move when meeting a guy they like.

So if your other-halves’ fancy dress costume has gone from bed sheet ghost to a sexy vampire, be warned it could be more than just fun she is looking for at this year’s Halloween party.

Meanwhile over two thirds of the male members on the site said they would most likely dress as an “attractive movie star” rather than something frightening or something less attractive, with the majority of men either opting for the ‘Top Gun’ or ‘superhero’ look this Halloween in order to enhance their looks.

Luxury Chocolate Brands Could Give Illicit Lovers A Boost

Leading UK Married Dating Site Reveals That Eating High Quality Chocolate Could Improve Your Sex Life!

A study by the UK’s leading dating site for married people, IllicitEncounters.com, has revealed that 78% of women say eating dark chocolate can put them in the mood for love making.

This week is National Chocolate Week – and apart from the obvious joy of indulging in a moment of cocoa bliss, there are many additional advantages to our sex drive, and our health when we eat dark chocolate.

When taking a bite of chocolate ladies will be feeling the benefits of L-arginine, this amino acid can be an effective natural sex-enhancer for both women and men. It works by increasing nitric oxide and promoting blood flow to your sexual organs.

78% of the 4,000 women IllicitEncounters.com surveyed said that dark chocolate increased their sexual appetite. 48% said they would be put off if a lover bought her a ‘cheap’ box of milk chocolates.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters, Ava Cooper adds: “The sexual effects of chocolate are not just limited to the ‘Cadbury’s Flake moment’ whilst relaxing in the bath. The ancient beliefs of The Aztecs regarding the aphrodisiac quality of chocolate are based within science. Chocolate contains the compound theobromine, also found in tea and kola nuts, the substance works on the central nervous system, causing one to feel stimulated and excited – which was backed up by the female members we spoke to in our research.”

One member: Sally, 47, from London said: “Chocolate does get me in the mood, but it has to be high quality dark chocolate. There is something very arousing about the way chocolate melts in your mouth, it is one of the most sensual experiences in my opinion.”

Before you head down to Hotel Chocolat and stock up on candies with a night of passion hot on your agenda, remember if you’re going to indulge in chocolate regularly – dark chocolate is the best. Make your choice as pure and unsweetened as possible. Be good to yourself and stick to the quality brands such as Green and Blacks or Lindt, and your lover will thank you.

Turning 40, 50, or 60, May Leave You Longing For More Than A Big Party!

hkdy09xxbvibu1faasaj

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest dating site for married people, have seen a large increase in members joining and activity of existing members as they approach their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.

The zeros are fast becoming a time when people reassess their personal needs and begin to look for something extra in their life.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Ava Cooper, said: “Life’s mirror can hit you at anytime, but as we reach a milestone heading into another decade, it’s natural to suddenly review everything and relationships are often top of the list. The challenging aspects of a marriage that we continue to ignore, tend to resurface around landmark life events and birthdays, so it’s no surprise that we see a increase in new people signing up to the site as they reach a milestone birthday.”

This year IllicitEncounters.com has seen a 45% increase in activity of women and a 38% increase from men who are approaching their 40’s 50′ and 60’s, looking to rediscover romance and passion outside their existing relationship.

Faye, 50, from Somerset, who recently joined the site tells us: “I love my husband, and we have been married for nearly thirty years, but the romance died years ago. Turning 50 was a massive deal for me and I found myself wanting try new things. I want to get the most out of life before it’s too late. Since joining IllicitEncounters.com, I have finally got some romance back in my life and I feel better than ever.”

Ava Cooper continued: “Many members don’t want to rock the boat, meaning they often look to satisfy a part of themselves that the marriage no longer does. Illicit Encounters is safe, secure and everyone is understanding and in a similar situation.”

Percentage increase of members joining and activity at ages 40, 50 & 60

40 39.00% 46.00%

One in fourteen women have done a “Bridget Jones” and dated a much younger man!

updiywm5vhumr0yof5jx

In the 15 years since the last Bridget Jones book was published, we have seen the internet dating boom, Girl Power, and the rise of the ‘Cougar’. Now aged 51 and newly single, Bridget is in good company with leading married dating site IllicitEncounters.com reporting a large rise in the number of women who identify with the term ‘Cougar’.

Statistics from the UK’s largest dating website for married people, IllicitEncounters.com, have revealed that 61% of their female members have had a romantic tryst with a younger man.

In the new book – after the surprising and untimely death of Mark Darcy, Bridget is currently dating a 30 year old toyboy called Roxster, putting her in the 8% of women who have enjoyed a relationship with someone over 15 years their junior. The most common age gap between cougars and their lovers, is 5 to 10 years.

For men, older women also seem more appealing. 57% of married men in the UK have admitted to conducting an extra-marital affair with a woman older than themselves, and 24% of married men have chosen to date a woman between 5 and 10 years older. According to the statistics, men typically date women who are between 3 and 5 years older.

If younger, how much younger were the men you chose to conduct an illicit encounter with? Female
Less than 1 year younger 18%
From 1-3 years younger 18%
From 3-5 years younger 19%
From 5-10 years younger 22%
From 10-15 years younger 15%
Over 15 years younger 8%
If older, how much older were the women you chose to conduct an illicit encounter with? Male
More than 1 year older 18%
From 1-3 years older 19%
From 3-5 years older 24%
From 5-10 years older 21%
From 10-15 years older 13%
Over 15 years older 5%

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Rosie Freeman-Jones said: “Since the release of the first book, the internet has launched a sexual revolution, enabling people to rediscover passion and romance – including over 6% of the UK’s married population signing up to IllicitEncounters.com. The fact is, a woman’s sexual appetite increases with age, whereas men’s tends to peak in their mid-20’s. This could go some way to explaining the growing trend of Cougars.

Case-studies have told me they are married to men whose sex drive has slowly tailed off, and they have becoming increasingly frustrated. They now choose to meet a guy who’s younger simply because they feel he will be better equipped to keep up!”
