- Over 2,500 people have joined the site in September so far, with the luxury of an empty house affording them the perfect opportunity to cheat

Acts of adultery have hit fever pitch in the month of September, a new report suggests.
IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, has seen a 10% year-on-year increase in registrations for the first 10 days of September, with over 2,500 people joining the site.
“It’s down to education,” explains the site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant.
“To be more specific, it’s down to children, teens and young adults returning or making their first foray into schools, colleges and universities.
After a busy summer period, a lot of parents might be initially grateful of a house devoid of people, especially if it’s young kids or unruly teenagers.
However, an empty house is conducive to an affair. There’s the obvious reason: you’ve got an empty space and several hours to meet up with whomever you please, but there’s more to it than that.
Periods of isolation allow for contemplation and self-reflection, and it’s in these periods of thought, without any distractions, that husbands and wives begin to truly come to terms with the flaws in their marriages.”
Interestingly, the site has seen a greater number of women joining the site than men in the first 10 days of September, with women making up 75% of registrations so far.
“We’ve always had a majority of female registrations in previous Septembers, and this hasn’t changed. While there are far too many variables at play to pinpoint a specific reason for this, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that the overwhelming majority of parents who stay at home are women.
While this number is decreasing every year, a report from the Office for National Statistics in 2015 stated that 2.01 million of 2.26 million of those unemployed because they are at home and/or taking care of their family are women.
In other words, the lonely person in the empty house is far, far more likely to be a woman.”
