Boom in Mistress Cards as Valentine’s Day Approaches!

ne2dxtseqqfyvjtum3la

IllicitEncounters.com has added a range of Valentine’s Cards to their successful series of Mistress Cards celebrating ADULTERY. The new range of Mistress Cards launched by the UK’s largest married dating site ahead of Valentine’s Day has instantly become an unlikely bestseller, with 2.6 being sold every minute.

E-cards can be sent by email for free from Mistresscards.com or printed versions of the cards cost £2.50 and can be ordered online. Most of the cards are aimed at men although others are aimed at married women to send to their lovers – or Histresses. The decision to launch the range came after a survey found married men spend 23% more on Valentine’s gifts for their mistresses than their wives.

The poll, which surveyed 2,000 IE male members, found married men spent an average of £147.60 on Valentine’s gifts for their lovers compared to just £120 on their spouse. Mistress gifts were also more likely to be more sensual, like lingerie, champagne or chocolates, compared to practical gifts for their wives, like a phone upgrade or a new purse.

The best-selling Mistress card says:

Roses are red, Violets are Blue, It’s a good thing my wife doesn’t know I’m screwing you

The second best-selling card says:

‘I want you as my mistress to brighten up my life,

Please overlook that I have a wife.

My relationship’s ending, some would say dead

So let’s have some dinner and end up in bed.’

The cards can be sent from any email address and arrive to the recipient immediately.

“What we’re seeing in this product popularity is how much men value their mistresses,” said psychologist Lucy Redford, “Receiving a card for Valentine’s Day can mean a lot to a mistress, someone who is stereotypically seen as the second most important, after the wife. It’s really a small thing that means something huge – that they’re important. It validates them and makes them think they’re on their lover’s mind. Fundamentally, that’s what we all crave – to feel important and validated.”

“We are absolutely delighted with sales figures.” Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said, “We launched the cards Monday morning at 9am and by Tuesday morning, we had sales of over 3,600. There’s 1440 minutes in a day, so that means there are 2.6 sold every minute. I am not surprised in the slightest that the cards have been such a hit – they’re proof of how much men on our site treasure their mistresses. One woman sent an email to me this morning and said she had received a mistress card from her lover along with a beautiful Tiffany necklace! A lot of men value their relationship with their mistress more than their marriage but for some reason or another –financial, family, personal or health – they cannot leave the marriage. Our mistresses love being treated like this, it’s really the best of both worlds: receiving all the excitement of being spoilt and treated like a princess, without the hassle of a relationship.”
