* 20% increase in female love cheats
* Biggest spike in 35-45 year old love rats
* Record breaking female sign ups to married dating website IllicitEncounters.com
Since summer 2018 there has been a shocking 20% increase of married women choosing to find sexual liaisons online with men that are not their husbands.
Over the past year lllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading extra-marital affairs site, has seen a huge increase of women signing up to their website – with data analyses predicting 2019 to break female sign up records.
The research also indicated that the biggest spike of women joining was in the age category of 35-45 years old – accounting for more than half of the increase in wedded women seeking affairs.
The study also polled 800 of its new female members on IllicitEncounters.com about what their reasons were for wanting to cheat on their partner and found that 31% of females felt they needed an adventure, and 23% were seeking an affair because they were unwilling or unable to have sex with their spouse.
Although the divorce rate in the UK is falling, recent studies reveal that infidelity is on the rise. Historically men are more likely to cheat than women. However, IllicitEncounters.com has found that attitudes towards adultery are changing.
Experts put this down to the rise in acceptance of female empowerment and equality. TV programs such as ITV’s Love Island actively promote parity between male and female contestants to seek as many sexual liaisons as they wish in their search for a relationship. The popularity of such programmes could potentially be a catalyst towards the 20% increase of woman cheating since last summer.
Joanna a female member using IllicitEncounters.com said ‘I’m cheating because I simply require more sex than my husband is willing to provide, and I feel deprived. Honestly, married life is just the process isn’t it? School, career, husband, house, baby – it’s a checklist. There are other boxes that I need ticked, and sex is one of them – and if sex isn’t on the agenda with my husband, I will look for it somewhere else.’
Jessica Leoni, relationship expert from IllicitEncounters.com said ‘More woman cheat because they can. Once you get a taste for forbidden fruit, that’s all you’ll want from the menu.
We’re teased left right and centre with sex exposure from the media, I know for one that Love Island’s got plenty of my female friends hot under the collar.
It’s exciting isn’t it? All the devilish debauchery! Women are beginning to realise they deserve more, and our female comrades are right beside us to help nurture and encourage our illicit fantasies. The data clearly reveals that female adulterers are more like explorers on the hunt for a new adventure when married life becomes stale.
I think it’s great that ladies are having this shift in consciousness and exploring their sexuality – as Lou Reed once sung, “hey babe, take a walk on the wild side”’
Below are the top six reasons given by women for cheating on their partner:
1. In need of an adventure 31%
2. Unwilling or unable to have sex with spouse 23%
3. I don’t want to leave my partner 18%
4. I don’t feel appreciated at home 12%
5. Seeking emotional connection 9%
6. Other 7%
