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 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.” 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.”
