‘Cheating map’ Reveals Britain’s Top Cheating Towns and Cities

  • Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, is the most adulterous town in the country
  • The most faithful town is the Welsh town of Barry
  • Islington is the capital’s most adulterous borough, while Ealing is its most faithful
  • Several affluent towns from the south of England found themselves toward the top of the index, while just one northern town, Newcastle-under-Lyme, broke the top 10
  • The most adulterous city in the country is Gloucester, while Glasgow is the most faithful
  • You can find how adulterous your town is by going to www.infidelityindex.co.uk, compiled by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

The affluent town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, is officially the nation’s cheating capital.

The Infidelity Index, compiled by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, mapped the location data of its 1.1 million members against each town’s adult population to find the most adulterous towns, cities, and London boroughs in the country.

Royal Tunbridge Wells, home to celebrities such as married comedian Jo Brand, musician Jeff Beck and Britain’s most recent female Wimbledon champion, Virginia Wade, is home to 1,146 adulterers, 2.2% of the town’s adult population, meaning it takes home the crown for the most adulterous town in the country.

The Index lists the top 140 cheating towns across the UK (and Ireland), with Guildford retaining 2nd place with 1,303 adulterers (2.1%).

Wrexham rounded off the top 3 with 1,027 adulterers – 1.89% of the town’s population.

Many of the top cheating towns were affluent areas in the south of England, such as Guildford (2nd), Ashford (5th) and High Wycombe (7th).

Meanwhile, just one northern town, Newcastle-under-Lyme, broke into the top 10 (10th place).

You can find where your town ranked here.

Speaking of High Wycombe – last year’s #1 – it slumped to 7th place with 1.77% of its population cheating, while the Welsh town of Barry is officially the least adulterous, and therefore most faithful town in the entire country; it’s home to just 88 adulterers, a meagre 0.18% of its adult population.

We’re not quite sure what happened to the people of Brentwood in the last 12 months, but 2016’s most faithful town failed to hold onto its place, finishing 102nd out of 140 with 0.56% of its population cheating.

And the town of Livingston, sitting pretty in 8th place overall, is officially Scotland’s cheating capital with 1.74% of its adult population cheating (909 adulterers).

Last year’s Scottish champion, Cumbernauld, still performed strongly, finding itself in 14th place overall, with 1.56% of its adult population cheating.

Northern Ireland can look to Newtownabbey (28th place) for its most adulterous town, while Craigavon, which is also the 2nd least adulterous town overall, is its most faithful town – just 168 people (0.19%) are having affairs.

As for the nation’s capital, it’s Islington, home to celebrities such as musician Lily Allen, comedian Jimmy Carr and radio DJ Scott Mills, that is its most adulterous borough, with as many as 11,778 people cheating (5.94% of its adult population).

Ealing is London’s most faithful borough, with just 1.7% of its adult population cheating on their spouses (5,979 adulterers).

For the first time ever, the Index also includes the most adulterous cities. London as a whole is one of the nation’s most faithful cities – the 5th most faithful – with just 1.47% of its adult population cheating.

Gloucester is the UK’s most adulterous city, with 7.46% of its adult population having affairs. Glasgow is the least adulterous, with just 0.56% of its adult population cheating.

Peterborough, with 7.36% of its adult population, comes in 2nd, with Bath (7.35%) rounding off the top 3.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, commented on the findings:

“People have had affairs since the dawn of time, but the last decade in particular has seen a large spike.

“The site has grown exponentially, and it’s thanks to the turbulent economy and increase in house prices that has left many people financially crippled, unable to divorce should their marriage hit the rocks.

“So, they seek the only other viable alternative that they have: an affair. It’s cheaper than a divorce, and it’s safer than ever before.”

“This is most evident in southern towns, with Royal Tunbridge Wells, Guildford, High Wycombe and Ashford, to name but a few, all ranking near the very top of the Index.”

Intelligent people are more likely to cheat, especially women

  • Intelligent people are more likely to cheat, new research has found
  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, studied the educational qualifications of 1,000 men and 1,000 women on its site, with 76% of women holding a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to 65% of men.
  • 70% of men and 72% of women also worked in senior roles in, averaging £76,000 and £68,000 a year respectively.
  • Smarter and more successful individuals are much more attractive, meaning that they’re more likely to be desired by others; they have more opportunity to cheat
  • As for women, with so many being more financially stable than ever before, they’re less dependent on their significant other than they’ve ever been, so the risk of an affair is far less.

Bigger brains, bigger libido; intelligent people are more likely to have affairs, and women even more so.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, studied the educational qualifications of 1,000 men and 1,000 women on its site, with as many as 76% of women holding a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to 65% of men.

Education, however, was not the standalone factor when it came to determining just how intelligent someone was.

The website also looked its members to find how many spoke more than one language (20% women, 9% men) and how many ran their own business (55% men, 48% women).

While that leaves plenty who don’t run their own business, 70% of men and 72% of women worked in senior roles in their respective professions, averaging £76,000 and £68,000 a year respectively.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains the link between a big brain and a bigger propensity to stray:

“Smarter people are immediately more attractive,” he explains.

“A big brain is a turn on for so many, and when you accompany that with a big salary, the allure of success means that smarter people find themselves in situations where the opportunity for temptation is greater than that of their less intelligent and less successful counterparts.”

“Intelligent, successful people also have the disposable income to be able to afford a little bit on the side, while their important job affords them the perfect excuse of ‘working late’ so they can sneak out for a secret rendezvous.

“They’re also natural problem solvers, better negotiators, and tend to take calculated risks, so, if their marriage hits the rocks, and they cannot – or do not – want to upset the applecart at home, they’ve got no problem in exploring their only other option: an affair.”

“As for the rise in women cheating, you can thank the increase in the amount of women choosing to focus on their careers, with children coming into the equation later in life, if at all.

“With more financial stability, they’re less dependent on their significant other than they’ve ever been, so the risk of an affair becomes far less.”

Women Reveal The Sexiest Professions… and Accountants are #1​

  • Accountants have been voted the sexiest profession, according to a new survey
  • CEOs and doctors rounded off the top 3, followed by lawyers and builders
  • …but it’s bad news for waste collectors, customer services staff and lorry drivers – they’re the least sexy among us all
  • The survey of over 800 women of IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, found that solvency, ambition and kindness were the sexiest qualities
  • Jobs that paid poorly or didn’t require much intelligence fared poorly, with women deeming these the poorest qualities

It isn’t gardeners, and it’s not firemen, either. It is, in fact, accountants that are the sexiest profession going.

That’s according to a survey of over 800 women on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, with 21% of them voting accountants as the sexiest of all the professions.

CEOs came in second with 16% of the vote, due to their status and affluence, while doctors came third with 13%.

Other sexy professions included lawyers, builders and firemen, who received 11, 10 and 9 percent of the vote respectively.

So, what exactly makes a job sexy?

Well, the survey revealed that women found solvency, ambition and kindness as the sexiest qualities, while professions that were associated with poor pay, a lack of intelligence, and being general ‘dead-end’ jobs, were a turnoff.

This would explain the surprising turn of events that saw I.T. professionals scoring higher than gardeners (7% to 4%).

Katie, who responded to the survey, said:

“I’ve never actually met an attractive gardener. My gardener is called Steve, and he isn’t that hot.”

Bad news for Steve, then, but while he might not be able to live up to unrealistic expectations, he can take solace from the fact that it could be much worse.

The professions that were deemed the least sexy, receiving less than 1% of the vote, were waste collectors, customer services staff, lorry drivers and postmen.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:

“When someone says ‘sexy’, your first thought might be a ripped, topless fella that looks like he’s been stripped straight out of a trashy pop music video.

“As pleasant a thought as that may be, it’s not reality. While a physical attraction is important, rich, confident and creative folk do more to stimulate women’s minds, and that can’t be underestimated.

“Looks alone aren’t enough, because once that initial attraction wears off, you’re left with someone who lacks the confidence and intelligence to hold a half-decent conversation.”

Sexiest Professions

  1. Accountants – 21%
  2. CEO – 16%
  3. Doctor – 13%
  4. Lawyer -11%
  5. Builder – 10%
  6. Fireman – 9%
  7. I.T. professional – 7%
  8. Other – 6%
  9. Gardener – 4%
  10. Policeman – 3%

More Women Are Cheating Than Ever Before, and The Career Woman Is More Likely to Cheat Than Anyone Else

 

  • Women between 35 – 47 who earn £50,000 a year, and have got a university degree under their belt are more likely to cheat than anyone else
  • IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, studied over 2,000 female profiles on their site to find what the average mistress looks like
  • 60% of those 2,000 women said that female empowerment was a large part of their decision to have an affair
  • 75% said that they weren’t economically reliant on their husband, so the threat of divorce is no longer a barrier to cheating
  • More women are cheating than ever before, too: the site saw over 35% more women register in 2016 compared to 2010, and as much as 70% more than in 2006

Is there a pattern – some rhyme or reason – behind cheating? For women, maybe. New research suggests that if you’re a woman between 35 – 47, earn around £50,000 a year, and have got a university degree under your belt, you’re more likely to cheat than anyone else.

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, studied the profiles of over 2,000 women on their site to find any pattern behind what the modern day mistress might look like.

Middle-aged, well educated and solvent women typify the modern day career woman, and it’s the rise of this career woman that is seeing more women cheat than ever before.

This is compared to ten years ago, where not only was there was no pattern or theme to connect cheating mistresses, but the number of women cheating in general was far, far less.

The site saw over 35% more women register in 2016 compared to 2010, and as much as 70% more than in 2006.

But why? A large part of it is down to female empowerment, with 60% of the 2,000 women surveyed stating that they realised that they no longer needed to be second-best in their relationship; if their marriage hit the rocks, they felt motivated to do something about it.

More importantly, women are, on average, earning more money than ever before, meaning that the threat of divorce isn’t what it once was; they know that, should the worst case scenario come to fruition, they won’t be left economically ravaged – they’re not as reliant on the breadwinner, because there’s a good chance that they are the breadwinner – 75% said that this was the case.

“Women have evolved far beyond the lonely, stereotypical housewife of 50 years ago,” said the site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant.

“While gender pay gap issues still exist, women are earning more money and are more empowered than ever before, meaning that they can comfortably bulldoze past what is the biggest barrier to cheating for so many people.

“They’ve come to realise that, if their marriage hits the rocks, why should they have to put up with it? They shouldn’t, and they don’t.”
