Bankers are even bigger cheats when it comes to affairs

jkphspyni4lrprqecyoe

The UK’s largest extra-marital affairs dating website IllicitEncounters.com has released figures that suggest that those working in finance are most likely to have an affair then say those working in Government (3%) or in Engineering (6%).

Out of the 20 listed occupational fields a staggering 18% of active members have selected Financial Services as their occupation, indicating that bankers are currently the top cheating profession. The site is seeing more people from the financial sector seeking an affair, with an 8% increase of members joining IllicitEncounters.com since January this year.

Interestingly only 2% of active members are tradesmen opposing the myth that tradesmen have a womanising reputation. It is in face bankers that are laughing all the way to the bank.

Bankers are inherently designed to cheat, according to a study published in November last year in the journal Nature by Alain Cohn Ernst Fehr and André Maréchal. The study concluded that bankers are more likely to lie when conditioned into discussing their job beforehand.

John a member of IllicitEncounters.com and banker says “The banking industry is very fast paced and stress levels can be sky high when dealing with such a vast amount of money on a daily basis. It is an aggressive environment and the only way I seem to be able to relieve the tension is by sleeping with a string of women that are not my wife. When I’m going on a date after work I still feel cocky and ballsy with an answer for everything, but when I go home and see my wife I’m relaxed and can be the loving and attentive husband she needs me to be.”

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Claire Page says “Bankers can switch at the flip of a coin depending on what situation they find themselves in and they seem to be able to compartmentalise their private and professional life. Those working in the banking sector make the perfect affair candidates. They already know how to keep a secret and the financial security means they can afford the luxury of having an affair.

Fraudulent and irresponsible activity has been the trademark of bankers in recent years, with the economic crisis and Libor scandal, so taking this into their personal lives comes as no real surprise. Bankers are not one to miss out on an opportunity!

You would think that tradesmen, coming from such a masculine role, would be more likely to want to take a lover; after all the likelihood of being wolf whistled at in the street by a builder is higher than say, being approached by a man that is suited and booted. Although, the results speak for themselves”

Intelligent People More Likely to Cheat, Especially Women!

yaa0qvbcyabcgpmsqppc

Intelligent people are most likely to have affairs, especially women, according toIllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading married dating site.

The website looked at the educational qualifications of its nearly 1 million members in the UK. The findings show that 72% of female members have higher education qualifications of Bachelor’s Degrees or above whereas male members fared slightly lower with 65%.

Education, however, was not a standalone factor when analyzing a person’s intelligence. The website also cross examined the profiles of 500 currently active members of IllicitEncounters.com and found that 61% spoke more than one language, 48% described themselves as ‘creative’ and 34% ran their own business.

The majority of members on the site are in senior professions and earning high salaries (either in the higher rate or additional rate tax band), it is clear that intelligence impacts success.

“Appearing to have a successful life immediately makes you more desirable.” Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said, “It is unsurprising that successful people are faced with temptation when others are instantly attracted to them. Successful people tend to be high earners who have the financial means to indulge in an additional discrete relationship. They are also natural problem solvers and better negotiators who are more likely to take calculated risks – if they see a problem in their marriage but for whatever reason they cannot or do not want to leave, the obvious solution is to have an affair!”

The rise in women choosing to cheat on their spouses could be due to women choosing to focus on their careers and have children later in life, with the average age of women having kids currently at 30 years old. With better financial stability and less commitment, wives choosing to have an affair are on the increase.

The National Opinion Research Centre’s General Social Survey of American Society 2013 confirmed there has been an increase in women having affairs by 40%, while men having affairs remained consistent at 21%. IllicitEncounters.com has also seen an increase of 18% of female members joining the site in the last 12 months alone. With better financial stability, better education and less commitments, attached women choosing to take on another lover are on the rise.

Boris Voted Most Bed-able Politician in Dating Site Version of Snog, Marry, Avoid

mdbpachcgxfnbixnvbkv

With the impending elections, IllicitEncounters.com has asked its members to take part in a slightly different kind of poll. Instead of snog marry and avoid, 500 members were asked which politicians they would most like to cheat with, divorce their spouse for or avoid.

The results reveal that most women would like to cheat with Boris Johnson with over half of the vote (52%) and men would like to be unfaithful with Esther McVey (47%).

In the ‘divorce spouse for’ category Nick Clegg came top for women with 38% and Gloria De Piero for men with 35%.

The politician that has us running for the hills in the ‘avoid’ category is Nigel Farage with a staggering 64% of the vote and Nicola Sturgeon (58%).

Runners up in the ‘most likely to cheat with’ included Jeremy Hunt, Grant Shapps, Penny Mordaunt, Caroline Flint and Elizabeth Truss suggesting that Conservative politicians appeal to a more illicit audience.

David Cameron received 11% of the votes in the marry category whilst Ed Miliband didn’t fare so well receiving 6% of the votes in the avoid category.

The poll was carried out by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading married dating website with almost 1 million UK members.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Claire Page said “Affairs and politics seem to go hand in hand, from John Major, Bill Clinton to Francois Holland, politicians are stereotypically bad at being faithful.”

“With the results released, the most hilarious finding has got to be Boris Johnson winning the title of person we would most like to cheat with! In a bizarre way, he emulates his hero Winston Churchill. He’s a sensationalist – between his comments on Islamic fundamentalists and suicide bombers, to his very fitting (or not so!) jokes about pro-having and pro-eating policies on cake, he’s certainly gifted at grabbing headlines. You have to admit, he’s got charm, so, in a way, it’s not difficult to see why women like him”

Full details of the winners are listed below:

Have an affair with
Boris Johnson
Marital Status: Married.

Once quoted saying ‘I’ve slept with far fewer than 1000’

“Step in line ladies and form an orderly queue. Since Bojo first came into the public eye we have been fascinated by him, he is brazen and has charisma. There is no denying he has become a symbol for all things London – and with the highest percentage of members from here, it is no surprise we have formed a strong attachment to the politician. He would make an ideal candidate for an affair, picture this –an illicit afternoon cycling along the Thames – although it would be a bit hard to disguise that floppy blonde hair of his!”

Esther Mcvey
Marital Status: Single

Once quoted saying ‘Marriage never came my way, I don’t know why.’

“Former GMTV presenter, also known as Fester Mcvile. She is opinionated and feisty – this slightly intimidating blonde bombshell is exactly the kind of woman a man would fantasize sleeping with outside of their marriage. Reminiscent of a comic book supervillainess, and who wouldn’t want to sleep with Posion Ivy, just once, to see what it’s like?”

Would have a Divorce for
Nick Clegg
Marital Status: Married

Once quoted saying ‘My head spins. One moment I’m told I’m too edgy, then people say I’m too angry, then that I show too much passion … make your minds up,”

“Nick Clegg, a jack of all trades. He is an award winning journalist for the financial times, if you do the math – on that basis alone he would make an excellent prospective partner – the figures point towards financial security. Not only that, he is multilingual in five different European languages – which will make the holidays interesting!”

Gloria De Piero
Marital Status: Married

Once quoted saying ‘I hate to sound like a politician, but we must not allow ladders of opportunity to be taken beyond the reach of ordinary people,’

“Another former GMTV presenter, Gloria De Piero of Italian descent is the stunning girl next door. Someone you would be pleased to introduce to your family – she comes from a humble background and has become a rising star in the political world. Having launched a ‘Why do you hate me campaign’ to establish a better connection with the general public, she aims to challenge negative views of politicians. Beautiful and intriguing – it is no surprise men would leave their wives for her!”

Bubbling under in the ‘Divorce my spouse for’ were Tristram Hunt (27%), David Cameron (11%) and Luciana Berger (28%).

Avoid
Nigel Farage
Marital Status: Married

Once quoted saying ‘I think that politics needs a bit of spicing up.’

“Not the greatest reputation, often coming under fire for his controversial speeches. It seems the general consensus is to avoid this politician, with his extreme views on immigration and wanting to bring back smoking in pubs and clubs – he isn’t exactly popular. Al Murray would have probably fended better with his spoof of Nigel’s UKIP party act, The Pub Landlord.”

Nicola Sturgeon
Marital Status: Married

Once quoted saying ‘Where Mrs Thatcher divided society, I want to do the opposite’

“Let’s face it, with a huge 58% of the vote it is clear that Nicola Sturgeon simply doesn’t have those qualities we look for in a romance. The fact she’s in a committed 12 year relationship also puts her in that no-go zone.”

Other people in the avoid category included Eric Pickles (17%), Ed Miliband (6%) and Leanne Wood (21%).

​Horse-Riding is the Top Fantasy First Date!

wnquvmo8krrqnikoumkz

If you want to seduce a woman, bring a mare with you because new research by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s top married dating site, shows that horse-riding is the top fantasy first date. 300 women on the site were asked what their ideal first date was and the most popular choice was ‘horse riding’ with 37% of the votes, beating ‘cinema’, ‘sailing’, ‘candle lit dinner’ and ‘drinks in a pub’.

“When women think about their ideal first date they associate passion and exciting things with romantic success,” psychologist Lucy Redford said, “Although something very over-the-top like a flight to Paris is intimidating and too extravagant, something active like horse-riding takes your mind off the pressure of a first date, it’s fun and shows you’ve put thought into the date because it requires more effort than a few pints in the local. Horses are also associated with wealth, which in itself is attractive, and require a lot of attention and care – and most women look for an attentive, caring man.”

“I am quite surprised that the cinema was the second most popular date,” Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said, “Although it’s low-key and it takes the pressure off making great conversation, it can be quite awkward sitting in the dark with someone you don’t know very well. There’s something incredibly romantic about riding a horse alongside a lover, it doesn’t surprise me that it’s the number one fantasy first date. Hollywood has glamorised horse-riding with movies like Seabiscuit, Hidalgo, Something to Talk About and All the Pretty Horses, and there’s something incredibly passionate about darting into the wind on a horse – it’s liberating and exciting.”

‘Horse riding’ scooped 37% of the votes, beating ‘cinema’ (21%), ‘sailing’ (16%), ‘candle lit dinner’ (13%) and ‘drinks in a pub’ (9%). The least popular first dates were hot air balloons trips (2.5%), a football match (2.5%), a trip to a museum (2%), a massage (1.5%), a trip abroad (1%), fringe stand-up comedy (1%) and shopping (0.5%).

​Rise in Estate Agents bringing their mistresses to Show Houses!

dzqklylr3i5ixvoh1nso

There has been a sharp rise in estate agents bringing their mistresses to show houses, both for fantasy house shopping and bedroom rendezvous, according to married dating website, IllicitEncounters.com. One in twenty five (3.8%) people on the adulterous site claim to have had, or currently be in, affairs with estate agents. These people were asked why estate agents are great mistress/ histress material and the top three reasons were:

1)They’re great liars.

2)They’re financially stable.

3)They’re professional and understand the boundaries of an affair.

This fantasy house shopping is well-received by their partners because it “brings a sense of escapism” according to 89 mistresses in London. The most popular show house affair locations were Richmond, Chelsea, South Kensington and Canary Wharf.

“One customer told us she had been taken to a house on Billionaire’s row in Hampstead, North London, which was on the market for £65 million!” Claire Page, spokesperson for Illicit Encounters said, “The growing trend isn’t difficult to understand – show houses are cheaper and more comfortable than a hotel, although if I thought a high-earning estate agent was bringing me to a show house to save on money, I wouldn’t be impressed, but then again, unlike a hotel bill, it’s more discrete as it doesn’t leave a money trail, so it’s a safer option.”

“Thatcherism began the fantasy house shopping craze.” Psychologist Lucy Redford said, “When the Prime Minister declared her belief in a ‘property owning democracy’, it made the common family believe that through hard work and practical thrift, they could own their own house. For the first time in history, the idea of substantial assets being available to everyone was incredibly attractive – it brought financial security and a great deal of freedom. It’s the same factors that make property buying today so attractive. Fantasy house shopping and property porn are bigger than ever and so the rise of estate agents and property developers bringing their mistresses to lavish houses isn’t difficult to understand.”
