​Pancake Tuesday – the new Valentine’s Day for Mistresses

aiqrpeppdk0j01duwgai

Last week, over one billion Valentine’s cards were sent throughout the world, but new research by IllicitEncounters.com reveals that there is a second celebration of love coming up – Pancake Tuesday is the closest national celebration men will spend with their mistresses, because spending Valentine’s Day away from their wives is “too obvious”.

The poll, which surveyed 2,000 IE male members, found that 68% (1361) of men having an affair will spend the week after Valentine’s with their mistresses, and Pancake Tuesday was the top date men said they will spend with their mistresses scooping 72% of the votes.

1,000 of our female members were asked ‘Would you like your husband to surprise you with pancakes in bed on Pancake Tuesday?’ and 98% of them said ‘yes’. Despite this, when the men were asked ‘Will you make a pancake for your wife?’ only 43% said they would.

The 57% who won’t, were asked ‘Why won’t you make a pancake for your wife?’ the top three answers were:

1)She won’t like the way I make it

2)She’s busy getting ready for work in the morning

3)She’ll complain about the mess in the kitchen

When asked if they will buy or bake a pancake for their mistress, the majority of the surveyed said they would (61%) and the most popular flavourings were traditional butter, lemon and sugar; followed by Nutella.

The survey also found that married men spent more on their wives than mistresses –on average, the 2,000 surveyed 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.
