Men, Watch Your Backs – Nearly a Third of Guys Would Sleep with a Close Friend’s Partner!

What-to-Say-to-a-Friend-Whos-Having-an-Affair-main-650x433

Look away now fellas, as nearly a third of you (31%) would cheat with a close friend’s partner! That’s according to a survey by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, who asked their male members whether, if given the chance, they’d cheat with their best friend’s partner.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters, Christian Grant, explained: “The idea of a ‘bromance’ only goes so far. It’s all well and good saying that you’ve got your friend’s back, but, when presented with the opportunity, a significant amount of men abandon all code and loyalty, acting purely on instinct.”

An anonymous respondent shed a little light on the situation, stating: “The buzz from the proximity/danger would be amazing,” before adding that “it would be difficult to maintain that relationship for any length of time.”

The survey also found that, astonishingly, 17% have already cheated with a close friend’s partner, with this respondent describing his experience: “She was hot. We were both frustrated with our home lives. We had the perfect excuse to see each other often. In terms of the experience it was great whilst it lasted. Very intense physically. It became more difficult though as her relationship was breaking down from both parties’ perspective and I felt she was looking for more from me.”

Another added: “We always flirted and laughed so when her husband went away I took her out one night and we ended up in a delightful 5 year-long affair.”

Grant adds: “It might be shocking to some, but things of this nature happen all the time, and not just to a guy that you know – everyone is susceptible. Heck, just look at Simon Cowell. Sure, he’s not proud of what he’s done, and he probably knew beforehand the potential implications of sleeping with his best friend’s wife, but that didn’t stop him – now he’s a father, albeit a happy and proud one.”

Interestingly, IllicitEncounters also surveyed their female members, posing the same question. In complete contrast to the men, only 12% of women claimed that they’d cheat with a close friend’s partner, with just 10% admitting that they’d already done the deed.

In fact, the general consensus amongst women was that friendship was far too precious to risk for an affair. An anonymous respondent said: “Never make love by the garden gate, love is blind but the neighbours ain’t!” As one respondent put it, “some things are sacrosanct. Friendship is one of those things.”

Nearly Two Thirds of Men Admit They’d Cheat with a Younger Version of their Wife

Mindy-Mann-and-Gwen-Stefani

It turns out 40 isn’t the new 20, as nearly two thirds (65%) of men admit that they’d cheat with a woman who looks like a younger version of their wife. That’s according to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading and longest running dating website for married people, who surveyed over 4000 members.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters, Socrates Pyliotis, commented on the survey: “Come on, is this even that surprising? When presented with the opportunity to turn back time and sleep with a younger, hotter version of their wife, most men wouldn’t even think twice.”

Mike, a 37 year-old surveyor from Bristol, said: “I’ve been in a loveless marriage for donkey’s years, so if you’re telling me that I’d be able to roll back the years and cheat with a younger and more attractive version of my wife, then I’d be stupid to say no.”

Pyliotis adds: “Men are simply acting on instinct. We’ve seen in recent weeks that Gwen Stefani’s ex, Gavin Rossdale, has led the charge, with allegation’s aimed at him for sleeping with their nanny, who so happens to be the spitting image of Ms. Stefani.”

IllicitEncounters also surveyed over 3000 of its female members, posing the same question. The survey showed women to be the complete antithesis of men, as they would rather cheat on a man who is the polar opposite of their husband, with age bearing little importance.

“Five, ten, fifteen years into a marriage, and many wives begin to find their husbands unbearable. Niggling issues that were previously tolerated are now a huge deal, and many women find themselves unable to stand the sight of the man they once shared such a strong bond with,”
explains Pyliotis.

Karen, who responded to the survey, said: “If given the opportunity to cheat with another man, I’d want him to be as different to my husband as is humanly possible. Different in looks, different in personality, otherwise, what’s the point?”

Objection Overruled – Lawyers Found to be the Most Likely Profession to Cheat!

Jerene-May-2015-judge-hammer-shutterstock-700x420

Sorry lawyers, but the jury finds you guilty. Yes, the legal eagles have been revealed to be the most likely profession to have an affair. That’s according to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, whose data shows that 5% of their members (over 51,000) work in the legal sector.

Why lawyers? Theo, who works in a legal firm in London, explains “There isn’t a man or woman alive who doesn’t want to let their hair down from time to time, even if that means being a little naughty in the process.”

“Working long hours in a demanding profession that constantly requires you to act perfectly…there’s just a lot of stress involved, and having an affair is the perfect outlet to relieve some of that angst and have some fun.”

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters, Socrates Pyliotis, adds “Lawyers might hold up values of honesty and integrity in the workplace, but outside of that? Not so much. Lawyers are great with people, that’s part of their job, so it’s not too hard to envisage them charming their way to an illicit encounter.”

“Add in the adrenaline-fuelled rush of a legal battle in the courtroom, and the constant travelling that lawyers make to meet different clients, and you have the perfect opportunity for lawyers to act on their instincts.”

“Who knows, with National Love Your Lawyer Day on 6th November, some people might take it a little too literally!”

IllicitEncounters’ data also detailed the other professions that are most likely to cheat. Those in middle-level management came in second place with 4%, closely followed by accountants and those working in finance, with 2.2% and 1.7% respectively.

“There’s a recurring theme here,” explains Pyliotis. “Those in hardworking, big city jobs all share some common DNA – affairs seem to be the desired antidote to their stress!”

REVEALED! Strictly’s Most and Least Desirable Contestants Are…

 

Strictly-Dancing-C_3421799b

It’s 10’s across the board for Peter André and Katie Derham, as they’ve been crowned the most desirable Strictly Come Dancing contestants to have an affair with.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, surveyed 500 members, in which Peter André received 26% of the female vote, narrowly beating out Jay McGuinness, who received 21% of the vote.

An anonymous respondent labelled André “cheeky, lovely and fit”, with another stating that his “gorgeous body” put him head and shoulders above his fellow contestants.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters, Socrates Pyliotis, said “He might or might not win Strictly’s coveted crystal ball, but Peter André will leave a winner regardless. Let’s face it, very few can match his maturity, hot body and good sense of humour.”

Speaking of maturity, it’s not good news for Daniel O’Donnell, as he was awarded with the rather unwanted accolade of the Strictly Come Dancing contestant that you’d least like to have an affair with.

“Mr. O’Donnell on the other hand, well, the less said the better,” says Pyliotis. “Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood loves to play the pantomime villain, but our members certainly pulled no punches.”

He’s too boring and staid,” replied one respondent, while another labelled Mr. O’Donnell as “creepy.”

“Do you even need to ask why?” replied another. Yikes.

But it’s not all about the boys, as Katie Derham edged out Kirsty Gallacher as the most popular female contestant to have an illicit tango with.

“Those eyes, that style…utter classiness,” said one respondent on Ms Derham. “I have always found she has that sexual appeal that I want to bed.”

Meanwhile, singer Jamelia finished rock bottom, with 25% of members finding her the least attractive of Strictly’s female contingent. Jamelia received criticism for her attitude and temperament, with one respondent calling her the “biggest narcissist ever.”

Pyliotis said, “’I’ve come to the conclusion that people don’t like me,’ Jamelia told us on Saturday night – it looks like she was bang on the money. Her rigid dancing and poor attitude didn’t fare at all well with our members.”
