Holiday romances have the quickest ‘conversion rate’ on the dating scene with sex happening on the second date – twice as fast as if the couple meet at home, according to a new survey

* The second fastest conversion rate is if you meet a potential partner in a nightclub or bar – with sex happening after 2.2 dates;
* The third fastest way of having sex is by meeting someone on a dating website or app – with relationships consummated after 2.5 dates;
* The slowest conversion rate was an office romance at 7 dates because of fears over career disruption;
* The results are from a new survey of 1,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people

Couples go on an average of four dates before sleeping together – but the quickest ‘conversion rate’ for sex is when you meet someone on holiday, according to a new survey.

Holiday-makers have sex on average on their second date – twice as fast as if they met each other at home.

 

The second fastest conversion rate is if you meet a potential partner in a nightclub or bar – with sex happening after 2.2 dates.


The third fastest way of having sex is by meeting someone on a dating website or app – with relationships consummated after 2.5 dates.


These are the most effective ways of speed-tracking the famous ‘three-date rule’ which says that is the optimum time you should wait to have sex to boost your chances of the relationship lasting.

By far the worst sex conversion rate was if you meet someone at work – with sex not occurring until the seventh date on average. The delay here is because of couples’ reluctance to get involved with someone in the workplace in case of career complications.

The results were revealed in a new survey of 1,000 people by the IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people. It found that the average number of dates before sex in all types of dating was four. The only dating method which accorded with the ‘three-date rule’ was when a couple had been set up by friends.

Blind dates have the fourth quickest conversion rate at 3.3 dates, followed by connecting with someone on social media (3.5 dates) in fifth. Sixth place was a chance encounter such as bumping into a stranger on a bus or train (5 dates) and in seventh was meeting a partner through a hobby (5.5 dates).

The gym had the second worst sex conversion rate at 6 dates in ninth place, just behind office romances.

IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said:

“We have just had the hottest summer in more than 40 years and that has been reflected on the dating scene. People have a real ‘seize the moment’ attitude when they are away and they commit sexually far quicker than they would at home because they fear they may never get another chance to sleep with that person. Alcohol obviously boosts conversion rates for people who are meeting in nightclubs or bars.”

“Dating websites and apps are great to way to connect with people quickly. They break the three-date rule because both parties have made a deliberate decision to seek a new partner and that leads to inevitable short-cuts in the route to the bedroom.”

“Lots of people are also on dating sites purely to have casual sex which is why the conversion rate is so high.”

Cheating Soars as Students Fly The Nest

  • Married-dating website IllicitEncounters.com registrations up by 30% year on year
  • Survey shows over 50% of members experiencing empty nest syndrome.
  • Housewives lead the signup surge

Business is booming as the back to school period proves once again to be one of the busiest seasons for adulterers according to the UK’s leading dating website for married people, IllicitEncounters.com

Signups at IllicitEncounters.com have increased by 30% against the same period last year.

Good news for the men, IllicitEncounters.com male members reap the benefits of the empty nest, hungry housewife surge as female users spike on the site. Stay at home mums have taken the lead from teachers who top the summer sign-up period. This has been the best year by far on record.

Empty nest syndrome is the term used to describe feeling of sadness parents have when their children leave home, and the latest survey of 2000 members reveals 53% of users polled have experienced empty nest syndrome. Of all members polled roughly 20% claim it is what initially drove them to being unfaithful. That is just over a quarter of a million genuine users. We’ve included the top 5 Cities where signups have gone up the most.

Top 5 Cities by signup

  1. Oxford– topping the Infidelity Index for 2018 it’s no surprise that Oxford has made the top of the list for signup as well.
  2. Gloucester– picturesque, rural, and saucy. Certainly one to watch for the 2019 Infidelity Index.
  3. London– generally low on the index, but with a population of just over 8 million people it is a city with volume on its side.
  4. Nottingham– the heart of England wants what the heart of England wants! When Robin Hood is away, Maid Marion will play.
  5. Plymouth– the Mayflower has set sail for the new world, whatever shall the wives left behind do with themselves? Sign up to IllicitEncounters.com apparently.

Local new member Janice, 55 told us: “I was sitting in my car in the drive outside my house after spending a frantic weekend moving my youngest son to his new accommodation for uni, dreading going inside. I realised that after 30 years of raising my children  that my husband and I were essentially comfortable strangers, and that for the better part of a decade there had been no physical intimacy between us. I was a little apprehensive about signing up to IllicitEncounters but what I found was an open and caring community of people who are going through exactly the same thing as me. I went on a date for the first time in years, and felt desirable, it was like being a teenager again.”

IllicitEncounters.com spokesperson Christian Grant explains:

“This period is a little like a passing of the torch from the teachers who had their summer of love to the housewives who now find themselves with considerably less responsibility and a well earned amount of free time.”

“Empty nest syndrome is widely understood and well documented. Most married couples find that once the frantic grind of raising children and maintaining a home is over the only thing they have in common is a mortgage and newfound energy, with no outlet.”

“The real surprise for us has been the unexpected increase in signups, our expectations have been thoroughly exceeded which is great for us, and great for our members.”
