Brunettes, not blondes have more fun – model adopts seven different looks dating online to find which works best to find sex, a rich sugar daddy and the man of your dreams

  • Fitness fan Hayley Leeanna changed her picture and profile details and dated for two weeks with each different look;
  • Men were keenest on sex when she used some pictures of herself when she was younger – showing off her 28FF surgically enhanced bust as a bubbly brunette with a prominent cleavage;
  • Rich, older men liked her most as a party-loving blonde after she changed her hair colour and held a glass of red wine in her profile pic;
  • Hayley, 36, found she met the most genuine men as a gym bunny and when she dressed as herself in a revealing party dress;
  • She got little response when she wore glasses or dressed as smartly as a businesswoman –  and she was completely blown out as a slacker without make-up;
  • Hayley conducted the experiment for IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people

Brunettes and not blondes really do have more fun, according to a model who adopted seven different looks to find love and sex while online dating.

Fitness fan Hayley Leeanna, 36, had dated men online for years with varying success and could never work out which look potential partners liked most.

So she conducted an experiment – adopting seven different looks and dating for two weeks with different profile pictures and personality traits.

And she proved once and for all that you really do more fun as a brunette rather than a blonde when the number of approaches halved after she changed her profile picture to one where her hair had a golden colour.

Hayley said: “I spent six months learning everything there is to know about how subtle changes to your profile picture and personality details can make a huge difference to the type of man you attract.

“If you want to have sex, it sounds obvious but you need to be make clear in your pictures that you are out for a good time. So accentuate the cleavage, smile and look like you are up for a laugh.

“You should also use some pictures of you when you were younger to hide your real age – everyone is doing that online.

“If you want someone rich, blonde is definitely the way to go – that look attracted lots of sugar daddies who wanted to wine and dine me before taking me to bed.

“The most genuine men came forward when I was most like the real me – either showing my age in a revealing dress while out on the town or as a keep fit fanatic in my gym gear.

“I also meet some lovely men when I wore glasses because they thought I was a bit of an intellectual.

“The two looks which really bombed were when I wore glasses and when I went completely without make-up as a total slob.

“I also tried the businesswoman look in a smart suit but all the guys I met were total bores.”

Hayley, of Peterborough, Cambs,  went on all the dates over six months through IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people. Here’s which looks worked best:

Best for sex – the busty brunette – 87 approaches

Hayley said: “This was far the best look for creating a buzz and getting lots of attention. Sadly a lot of men were only interested in one thing and made absolutely clear that they expected sex on the first date after we got chatting online.

“I tended to get attention from younger men who were keen to exchange sexy pictures. I did date three of the men who contacted me with this profile and we had a lot of fun but it didn’t go anywhere.

Best for a rich sugar daddy – bubbly, party-loving blonde – 43 approaches

Hayley said: “The key difference when I used a picture from a few years ago with me as a blonde was that the men who came on to me were older and richer.

“Obviously they were married because this was IllicitEncounters.com – they had made their money and were looking for a fun-loving bit on the side.

“They loved the fact that I was holding a wine glass and gave the impression I was a party girl.

“I dated two men who contacted me with this profile picture. One was lovely and we had a great weekend together in Marbella staying in a five star hotel.

“He was in his 50s and he was a bit old for me but a fantastic lover nevertheless.”

Best for companionship – the gym bunny – 25 approaches

Hayley said: “I am happiest when I am in the gym and I found a few kindred spirits when I used some work-out pictures of myself on my profile.

“I had men wanting to meet up at the gym rather than a bar or a restaurant which was a nice change. I met some great guys but I was conscious that I was not making enough of my feminine side.”

Best for love – Hayley as herself – 32 approaches

Hayley said: “I am naturally a fun-loving brunette who is proud of my figure and loves my surgically enhanced boobs. I use IllicitEncounters because I am fed up with dating skint pretty boys.

“I like enjoying the high life and sharing some intelligent conversations with older men. I found the men were a little more genuine when I went on as myself – they could see there was nothing contrived about my profile.

“I used full length pictures of myself rather than one that just focused on my bust and they showed my real age more clearly.

“I got fewer younger men coming on to me than I did with the cleavage pictures and more men who were interested in a proper relationship.”

Best for nice guys – Hayley wearing spectacles – 4 approaches

Hayley said: “If you are dating online, ditch the specs – that is my advice. I was worried I would not get any approaches at all but four men came on to me and they were all absolutely lovely.

“The spectacles created a whole new persona for me and that was reflected in the responses. The men were much more polite but sadly none of them had a lot of money.”

Best for boredom – Hayley in a smart business suit – 8 approaches

Hayley said: “It is not really me but I straightened my hair flat, wore a smart business suit and had the persona of a successful businesswoman.

“I thought it might get me a classier type of guy but it just attracted a bunch of bores. This definitely didn’t work.”

Best for a complete blow-out – Hayley as a slacker without make-up – no approaches

Hayley said: “If you are dating online, get out the slap – no one want to see you when you are not looking your best.

I thought men might like the fact that I didn’t care about my appearance but who wants to date a slob with spots?

You can really enhance your profile picture with the right make-up and hairstyle.,”

Hayley is now back dating on IllicitEncounters.com using genuine pictures of how she really looks.

She said: “It was a great experiment but I prefer being me. I won’t have as much as sex as I can do with some of the flirty pictures of me but I will meet a better class of men.”

IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said: “Hayley is typical of the women on the site who tend to be in their 30s and are looking for no-strings attached fun with men who have a good level of income.”

IllicitEncounters enjoys a 25% surge in membership in January and February as unhappy spouses vow to change their life in the New Year by meeting a new partner.

More than one million have registered with the site and popularity has shot up in the last five years because sky high house prices make it too expensive for couples to divorce and set up two new homes.

Instead they stay together unhappily and date secretly on the side.

Beware of Red Tuesday – top day of the year to be dumped is tomorrow (Tues, Feb 12th)

  • More couples split up in the week of Valentine’s than any other week of the year;
  • Peak day for dumping is 48 hours before the big day;
  • Most popular way to end a relationship is by text, followed by a phone call and personal chat;
  • Results are from a new survey of 2,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people

Beware of Red Tuesday (February 12) tomorrow – it is the top day of the year to be dumped, according to new research.

More couples split up in the week of Valentine’s than any other week of the year.

And the peak day for dumping is 48 hours before the big day.

More than a third of people surveyed (37%) said they had broken with a lover in the week before Valentine’s.

The vast majority of people prefer to end a relationship without meeting their estranged partner face-to-face.

The most popular way to dump someone is by text, chosen by 31% of respondents, followed by a phone call (28%), in person (27%), over Facebook (8%), by Whatsapp (4%) and over Twitter (2%).

The results are from a new survey of 2,000 people by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people.

It found that while Red Tuesday was the most popular day for dumping, it was also one of the peak days to see an illicit lover ahead of Valentine’s.

Eight out of ten people (78%) having an affair with IllicitEncounters.com still choose to spend Valentine’s Day with their regular partner.

Only 16% – one in six – will leave their regular partner in the lurch and go out for a date with their lover on February 14.

The preferred date nights for people having affairs ahead of Valentine’s were the three days before – with February 13 the most likely for an illicit date.

Those having an affair spend an average of £90 on a gift for their lover, compared to £50 on the gift for their partner – 80% more for the mistress.

The reason there are so many break-ups in the most romantic week of the year is that February 14 focuses people’s minds on whether their relationship is really working.

It is easier to call it quits ahead of Valentine’s – saving a money on a gift and also not having to make false declarations of love.

IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said: “The period between Christmas and February is a popular time for people to spring clean their love lives as well as their homes.

“This period of reflection reaches its peak in the week before Valentine’s when there are more break-ups than at any other time of the year.

“For lots of people, it is easier to call time on a relationship rather than pretend everything is fine and tell lots of white lies.

“Dumping someone electronically is rising in popular with three-quarters of people breaking up with someone over the phone rather than in person.

“Everyone will have seen unhappy couples pretending that they enjoying each other’s company on dinner dates on Valentine’s Day.

“What’s more interesting is looking at the body language of couples out on February 11, 12 or 13 – they are likely to be having a lot more fun while having an affair, celebrating Valentine’s together a few days early before returning to their partners.”

More than one million people have registered with IllicitEncounters.com since the site was started more than ten years ago.

It is enjoying a bumper start to 2019 with registrations up 25% in the first six weeks, as increasing numbers of unhappy spouses act on their New Year’s Resolution to shake up their relationship by starting an affair.

Poll Revealed! Most Popular Places to go to Meet a Cheat

  • Survey of 1000 members of IllicitEncounters.com has revealed:
  • Nearly 1 in 3 users polled have gone to the gym to find a partner to cheat with.
  • 26% have found an extramarital relationship through work social events.
  • Of members who responded, 17% have made connections through social media platforms.
  • More cheaters meet in hobby clubs than bars and pubs

Could a newfound interest in fitness be a sign that your significant other is going to cheat on you? A recent survey of 1000 members of IllicitEncounters.com, the U.K’s leading dating website for married people, has revealed the top places where cheaters go to find potential partners to have an affair with.

When asked how they go about meeting people to cheat with, shockingly almost a third of respondents chose the gym as their preferred place to seek an extramarital companion. This makes the gym the most popular place other than IllicitEncounters.com to meet an extramarital companion. The poll also asked how long the affair would typically last, those who prefer to find their fling in the gym also had shorter relationships.

The other place that polled highly is work social events such as leaving drinks, office parties, and other informal gatherings with 26% looking to get lucky with a colleague. Affairs that got their start at the office party also had a greater longevity.

Social media platforms like Facebook made up 17% of the polling result. With all the technology at our fingertips connecting and reconnecting is easier than ever, it is perfect for touching base with an old flame. Pubs, bars, and hobby clubs also made the list, the latter catering for more niche sections of the population. One user indicated under ‘Other’ that she would meet married men through her job as an animal psychic.

Top places to meet a cheat

  1. The gym (30%)
  2. Work social events (26%)
  3. Social Media (17%)
  4. Hobby Clubs (12%)
  5. Other (9%)
  6. Pubs/Bars (6%)

Hannah, 41, from Portsmouth said, “I met the first man I ever had an affair with at the gym. Having a gym membership also makes it really easy to make time for my lover, it’s the perfect excuse to steal an afternoon for an intense ‘workout session’.”

Christian Grant, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com explained:

“Gyms today have become very versatile social spaces, the high end gyms are all kitted with cafes where you can grab a fresh brewed coffee, a glass or two of wine, and even a healthy bite to eat. It’s also increasingly common for gyms to have more than just weights and treadmills at their disposal. Now you can unwind in a steam room, sit in a sauna, or enjoy a relaxing soak in a hot tub.”

“With the continued momentum of the health conscious movement, more people than ever are joining up to gyms. If you want to forgo the discretion guaranteed by using IllicitEncounters.com, a gym membership is the way to go, unless your pet needs a psychic in which case I may know someone”

How to have a really smart sex live – a third of couples have filmed themselves having sex on their phones, according to a new survey

* 52% of us swap steamy pictures with our partners as a form of foreplay;
* Three-quarters of those surveyed said they had answered their phone while engaged in sex;
* People cheating on their partners are more likely to engage in phone sex with lovers than their regular spouse;
* The results were revealed in a new survey of 1,000 people showing how smartphones are impacting on our sex lives by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people

A third of couples have filmed themselves having a sex on their phones, according to a new survey.

And more than half of couples (52%) have exchanged steamy pictures of each other as a form of foreplay.

Three-quarters of those surveyed said they have used their phone to enhance their sex lives either by making images or viewing erotic footage.

More than a quarter of respondents had answered their phone while engaged in sex.

And just less than a fifth (18%) had made a call while getting amorous.

A fifth have stripped off or enjoyed sex play while talking to their partner on Facetime.

The results were revealed in a new survey of 1,000 people showing how smartphones are impacting on our sex lives by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people.

It found that people having affairs were even more likely to use their phones for sex.

Four out of ten people cheating on their partners have filmed themselves having sex with their lovers.

And six out of ten have swapped erotic images.

The survey found that people being unfaithful were more likely to indulge in sex play on their phones with their lover than they would with their regular spouse.

Two-thirds of respondents said that their smartphones had made it easier for them to having an affair because of the opportunities it presented to meet new partners and interact with them behind the backs of their partners.


IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said:

“What this new research shows is that smartphones are fundamentally changing our sex lives. We are using them to spice up sex, filming home-made erotic movies and to meet new people or cheat on our existing partners.”

“It’s an exciting development and is allowing lots of people stuck in stifling relationships to branch out and inject added excitement into their lives.”

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.”


How quickly will you have sex on the dating scene

1. Holiday romance – 2 dates

2. Meeting in a nightclub or bar – 2.2 dates

3. Dating website or app – 2.5 dates

4. Set up by friends – 3 dates

5. Blind date – 3.3 dates

6. Connecting with someone on social media – 4 dates

7. A chance encounter – 5 dates

8. Meeting through a hobby 5.5 dates

9. The gym – 6 dates

10. Meeting your partner at work – 7 dates

Radio Phwoar! Love cheats’ favourite radio station is also the Prime Minister’s – Radio 4, according to a new survey

* 25% of adulterers picked the posh BBC channel as their preferred station and the Today programme as their top show;
* Genteel Classic FM was the second most popular station with cheats and BBC Radio 5 was third;
* Radio 2 was the station whose audience is most likely to be faithful;
* Results are from a new survey of 2,000 adulterers by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people

Love cheats’ favourite radio station is Radio 4, according to a new survey.

A quarter of adulterers (25%) chose the posh BBC channel as their preferred station and the Today programme was their top show.

In second place was genteel Classic FM, chosen by 14% of respondents, and Radio 5 was third (12%).

Radio 2 was the national station whose audience is most likely to be faithful to their partners – chosen by just 4% of those polled.

The results are from a new survey 2,000 adulterers by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people.


Like most of the Cabinet, Prime Minister Theresa May wakes up to Radio 4’s influential Today programme, which has an audience of 6.8 million listeners daily, down 800,000 in the last year.


The fourth most popular radio station for cheats was Heart, chosen by 10% of respondents, and Smooth was fifth (9%).


In sixth place was Magic with 8% of those polled, Capital was seventh (7%), Radio 1 was eighth (6%), Virgin was ninth (5%) and Radio 2 came in tenth (4%).


Radio 2 is the UK’s most popular radio station with Chris Evans’ Radio 2 breakfast show its top show with 9 million listeners.


IllicitEncounters.com Christian Grant said:

“This new research shows that it is the most rich, powerful and influential people in the UK who are most likely to cheat. Lots of those people waking up to the Today programme are doing it in bed with their lover rather than their spouse. Classic FM also has an affluent, middle aged audience which explains why it featured so highly in the survey.”

“Radio 2 is the home of Steve Wright’s Sunday Love Songs – which celebrates marriage like no other show. It has a very middle-of-the-road audience who seem to be more happy with their lot and are less inclined to stray.”

 

Top 10 radio stations for love cheats

1. Radio 4 (25%)

2. Classic FM (14%)

3. Radio 5 (12%)

4. Heart (10%)

5. Smooth (9%)

6. Magic (8%)

I love combining sex with Radio 4’s Today show in the mornings, according to serial mistress Gweneth Lee

Serial mistress Gweneth Lee, 46, is one of the 25% of adulterers in the survey who chose Radio 4 as her favourite station and the Today programme as her top show.

Lee, a business consultant from Chelsea, West London, who has had affairs with more than 100 married men through the dating site IllicitEncounters.com, said:

“Like most members of the business and political communities, I like to get up to the Today programme just to get a grip on what is happening in the news. I often do this when I have been on a date with one of my married lovers and we are waking up in a hotel room. The best time for sex is during the mega dull Thought For The Day just before the 8am news.  That way, you are done and dusted before the main political interview of the day at 8.10am.”

“It’s a great way to start the day. The sex gives you lots of zip and Radio 4 ensures you are totally on top of the news.”

Two-thirds of people having affairs carry on having sex with their regular partners, according to a new survey

* Four in ten cheats (41%) say they have MORE sex with their spouses because the excitement of the affair heightens their sex drive;
* 74% of adulterers said the sex was better with their lover than their spouse;
* The results are from a new survey of 1,000 adulterers by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people

Two-thirds of people having affairs carry on having sex with their regular partners, according to a new survey.

Four in ten cheats (41%) say they make love to their spouses more often because the excitement of the affairs heightens their sex drive.

A third (33%) were keen to maintain the regular sexual routine at home so as not to raise suspicion.

Only a fifth of adulterers (22%) tell their lovers that they are continuing to have sex at home.

The results are revealed in a new survey of 1,000 adulterers by IllicitEncounters.com, Britain’s leading dating site for married people.

It found that 64% of adulterers kept up the same sexual routine with their partners at home.

A fifth (21%) had less sex with their spouses because of the affair, but only 15% abstained from sex at home altogether.

Of those 15%, most had stopped having sex with their spouses even before the affair had started.

Women are more likely than men to maintain sexual relations with their spouse to cover up their cheating.

Seven out of ten women (69%) continue to have sex with their husbands while cheating.

Slightly fewer men (63%) still make love to their wives while also sleeping with their lover.  

Three-quarters of respondents (74%) said that sex with their lover was better than with their regular partner.

And two-thirds (62%) said they tried more adventurous sex with their lovers when they went to bed.


IllicitEncounters.com spokesman Christian Grant said:
“What this new research shows is that people start having affairs to add some excitement to their lives. 
They are almost certainly still having sex with their spouses but it has become a little dull and routine. The excitement of the affairs makes them betters lovers – not just with the person they are cheating with but with their spouse at home.”

“An affair can actually reinvigorate a marriage by making people reassess their behaviour and address long-standing issues with their partners.”

Do affairs help sufferers of Seasonal Affective Disorder?

gfrbwsdgho3j1wsvhdbx

The clocks going back this weekend officially signals the end of British Summer Time. The longer nights will have a profound effect on our emotional states. According to IllicitEncounters.com the number of people seeking to embark on extra-marital relationships rises significantly during the winter months.

Research has shown that 1 in 5 people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. During the winter months, symptoms including lack of energy,withdrawal from friends, family, and social activities and decreased sexual interest in their partner can all lead to depression and lack of pleasure. People suffering from this might seek an extra-marital affair as a way to counter-act the effects of S.A.D.

When people are having, or pursuing an affair, they take greater pains to appear attractive, to take care of their bodies and consequently are healthier. They are having sex more, getting more exercise, and physiologically behaving in ways contrary to the lethargy and inactivity associated with most depression. IllicitEncounters.com see on average 25% higher levels of activity during the winter months compared with the rest of the year.

Infidelity as a means to combat depression is not a new phenomenon. In the 19th century, Madame Germaine de Stael, a French political writer and vocal opponent of Napoleon, suffered severe depression throughout most of her life and used extramarital sex as a way deal with her condition. Whilst suffering from depression she engaged in active and aggressive adultery, entering into sexual encounters with several different men. As a humorous and politically insightful woman she attracted men with ease, and used a string of lovers to help uplift herself from depression. In a letter she wrote, to explain why she had taken yet another lover, “a sort of excitement that would relieve for a moment the terrible weight that was pressing on my heart.”

There are not just psychological benefits in having more sex. Women may be getting something else that can help fight depression, semen. Research conducted by Gallup and Burch reveals that men have a secret chemical weapon. Semen is shown to contain high levels of psychoactive hormones and substances such as testosterone (which can increase a woman’s libido), as well as other neurochemicals such as; norepinephrine, vasopressin, oxytocin, melatonin, epinephrine and other opioids. All of which have a detectable impact upon mood.

Neurochemically, the brain reacts to a new sexual relationship with a tremendous flood of powerful substances that affect mood and energy. Across many different physiological and psychological dimensions, a woman beginning a new relationship experiences an increase in feelings of pleasure, excitement, energy, and interest in life and her new lover.

IllicitEncounters.com spokesperson Rosie Freeman-Jones said; “It is highly probable that men and women are signing up and engaging in extramarital relationships as a result of seasonal affective disorder caused by the onset of longer nights, in an unconscious attempt to overcome those feelings, using one of the most powerful biological weapons available to them, Sex!”
