Revealed: Why People Cheat!

• 58% of men have an affair in search of intimacy, compared to 40% of women
• 65% of women have an affair in search of a meaningful relationship
• Almost two thirds of men are jealous of an intimate affair, while over half of women are jealous of an emotional affair
• The results come from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

Men are lustful, while women want something more. IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, surveyed over 1000 of their members and found that 58% of men have an affair for sex, compared to 40% of women, while 65% of women have an affair in search of a deeper, more meaningful relationship.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, explains: “Typical men, right? Maybe, maybe not. The average man on IllicitEncounters.com is a high earner and a hard worker. As it stands, he just about has enough time to juggle his current daily routine, balancing his work and familial responsibilities.

There simply isn’t any room for him to meet a second woman and delve into a deep and meaningful relationship. A quick fling however, now that’s an entirely different story.

The women on the other hand are the ones who find themselves on the receiving end of this kind of a relationship. Their husbands work long hours, sacrifice time spent at home for time spent at work, so they’re yearning for some companionship.

Women want what they can’t have at home; they can’t be wined, dined and experience something meaningful.”

Maria, a 42-year-old estate agent from London, said: “One of the big compromises of having a successful career is inevitably a lack of time spent in other areas. In my marriage, I am that other area. While I love my husband, I can’t remember the last time we spent any sort of meaningful, quality time together – even something small.”

But what happens when the tables are turned? IllicitEncounters.com found that almost two thirds of men were jealous of an intimate affair (63%), while over half of women (54%) were more likely to be jealous of an emotional affair.

Grant explains: “For a lot of men, the idea that another man is able to satisfy his wife’s needs better than they can is a demoralizing and emasculating thought. Women, meanwhile, are more concerned with their husband’s being emotionally unfaithful. Sex might not even come into the equation – it’s more so the idea that their man prefers being in the company of another woman.”

The Affairs Guide to the Budget

Osborne-Budget-1_3228824b

  • George Osborne’s budget is likely to lead to an increase in adulterers in the UK
  • This is as a result of the extra time and ease of travel brought about by a longer school day and investment in new transportation links
  • This is predicted by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

Every politician, economic analyst and British citizen up and down the country is beginning to analyse and dissect George Osborne’s latest budget. But while they worry about the potential economic implications, very few, if any, are focusing on the impact that it’ll have on the adulterous behaviour on the average British citizen.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, predicts that Mr. Osborne’s latest budget will only seek to increase the number of affairs, and affair-seekers, across the country in the years to come.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, explains: “When it comes to an affair, nothing beats convenience, and the new budget offers just that. Let’s start with the obvious – longer school days. It’s an adulterer’s dream.

It can sometimes be difficult to squeeze in a long-term affair with the already hectic responsibilities one has at home, so an extra hour, or more, of not having to worry about picking up the kids from school is an extra hour browsing sites like IllicitEncounters.com, or an extra hour to play away from home, so to speak.

When you begin to factor in the extra funding that is to be provided for after-school activities, you’re simply adding to the free time that an affair-seeking parent has to sneak out for a secret tryst.

And speaking of time, travelling across the country is about to become much quicker. With rail lines such as Crossrail 2 in London and HS3 between Leeds and Manchester being greenlit, along with a cut in the tolls on the River Severn crossings, freedom of movement is becoming quicker, easier and cheaper. It’s the perfect opportunity for affair-seekers to broaden their horizons and search a little further afield, with their partner none the wiser.

Needless to say, should the Chancellor of the Exchequer grow the economy as he forecasts, it’s all the more money in people’s pockets. More money to travel, more money to spend on their secret lover.”

Over 60’s Shades of Grey: Adultery Is Rife Among Pensioners

Over 60’s Shades of Grey: Adultery Is Rife Among Pensioners

  • IllicitEncounters.com has seen a 10% year on year increase in the number of over 60’s signing up in the last 12 months
  • 37% of over 60’s said that a lack of sex at home was the main reason for their desire to have an affair
  • 24% said that they were no longer attracted to their partner
  • IllicitEncounters.com is the UK’s leading dating website for married people with over 1,000,000 members

People marry young, grow old, retire, and spend their remaining years together. It’s innocent and romantic, but it could also be more fantasy than reality, as IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, has reported a 10% increase year on year in the number of over 60’s signing up to the site in the last 12 months.

There are a myriad of reasons for the increase, as IllicitEncounters’ spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:

“Remaining committed and faithful to one person over a period of many years, or in this case decades, is one of the hardest things someone can do. It’s made even harder when growing old, and the changes that come with it begin to take their toll.

For one, people change and grow apart; the person you marry at 30 isn’t necessarily going to be the same person at 60, and your tastes could change, too. At that age, the last thing you want to be worrying about is going through a complicated divorce.

And, while not exclusive to this age bracket, there’s the very real possibility that a number of health issues can inhibit and cripple a couple’s sex life. Whether it’s erectile dysfunction, or other sexual dysfunctions that can affect both men and women, a loss of virility, intimacy and passion can often be the biggest stumbling block for a relationship of any age – those over 60 are certainly no exception.

While many people might still enjoy spending time with their opposite number, a sexless marriage is often the final straw for any relationship.”

In fact, in a survey of over 1000 IllicitEncounters.com members over the age of 60, 37% said that a lack of sex at home was their main reason for joining the site.

24% said that they were no longer attracted to their partner, 15% wanted to experience something new, while 10% wanted to feel young again.

Tom, 63, who uses the site, commented: “I haven’t been intimate with my wife in many years. We get along fine, but there’s very little excitement or passion in our relationship anymore. There’s a youthful thrill in meeting someone new for the first time in decades.”
Top 5 Reasons Over 60s Look for Affairs

1.       Lack of sex at home 37%

2.       No longer attracted to their partner 24%

3.       Wanted to experience a new relationship 15%

4.       Other 14%

5.       Rediscover their youth 10%

‘Cheating map’ Reveals Britain’s Top 140 Towns for extra-marital Affairs!

* High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire is Britain’s cheating capital with 2,119 men and women having affairs;
* Brentwood in Essex is the most faithful town – shattering the myth that Essex girls (and boys) are promiscuous;
* High proportion of wealthy commuter towns in the top 10;
* New interactive Infidelity Index lists the number of people having affairs in Britain’s 140 towns leading towns;
* Infidelity Index has been put together by IllicitEncounters.com – Britain’s leading dating website for married people

The most adulterous town in the UK is posh High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, according to a new table of the country’s 140 cheating hotspots.

The middle class commuter town has been officially named as the place where a husband or wife is most likely to have an affair.

Wealthy High Wycombe has 2,119 people cheating out of a population of 120,256.
The interactive Infidelity Index allows users to search a town to discover how many people are having affairs in any locality.

High Wycombe came out highest, with 2.12% of the population cheating.

In second place was another middle class commuter town, Guildford in Surrey, with 1,250 cheats (2.05% of the population) and Aldershot in Hampshire came third.

Cumbernauld, fifth in the overall UK table, was Scotland’s cheating capital. Wrexham, a lowly 55 in the UK table, was Wales’s cheating capital – suggesting that couples in the Principality are having fewer affairs than elsewhere in the UK.

Many of the towns with the highest numbers of cheats are wealthy areas in the south of England.

The most faithful town, perhaps surprisingly, was Brentwood in Essex – shattering the myth that Essex girls (and boys) are promiscuous. Brentwood is where many of the cast of the TV show The Only Way Is Essex live or socialise.

Famous people from High Wycombe include the TV chef Heston Blumenthal, comedian Jimmy Carr, actor James Corden and TV presenter Fern Britton.

With an average house price of £269,681 – far above the national average of £188,270 – it is one of the most desirable places to live in the UK.

The figures were compiled by IllicitEncounters.com, Britain’s leading dating website for married people.

They are based on its own extensive data on the numbers of Britons cheating.

Since its inception 13 years ago, more than 1 million people have registered with the site.
IllicitEncounters.com has seen a 20% surge in registrations in the last five years because many couples simply cannot afford to divorce due economic pressures and ever-rising house prices.

Increasing numbers of couples are trapped in unhappy marriages but they are reluctant to divorce and are using IllicitEncounters.com to inject to some excitement into their lives with like-minded married men who also have no intention of leaving their partners.

llicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said: “We are increasingly popular in commuter towns like High Wycombe, Guildford, Maidenhead and Ashford. They are doing a lot more than just twitching curtains in Acacia Avenue.

“Spiralling house prices have made divorce increasingly difficult for many couples. They are struggling along unhappily because they simply cannot afford to set up two homes.

“IllicitEncounters.com provides an outlet for men and women who would have an affair whether we were there or not. In coming to us, they can be assured of meeting a like-minded partner seeking some added excitement in their life who doesn’t want to upset things at home.”

Every week, around 20,000 people in the UK are having affairs on IllicitEncounters.com.
The average income of the men on the site is £54,000 a year, with most working in professional jobs.
