Tall Men are More Likely to Cheat!

* Taller men are more likely to have an affair, new research has revealed
* 6ft 1” is the height most likely to be unfaithful, as well as the height that women find most attractive in a man
* Men who are 5ft 2” and under are the most faithful in Britain
* 79% of women said that they would not date someone who was shorter than them
* The findings come from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

Size really does matter when looking for a faithful partner. Evidence suggests that there is a connection between a man’s height and the likelihood of them having an affair. 

IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 4000 male members and found that those 5ft 10” and over are nearly twice as likely to cheat than their shorter counterparts.

The most common height for adulterous men is 6ft 1” with nearly a quarter of men in this category (23%)

No men in the sample were shorter than 5ft 3”, making 5ft 2” and under the most faithful height in the UK.

Only 32% of male love rats are between 5ft 3” and 5ft 9”.

The results of the study also correlate with various celebrity cheats, Dominic West, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods and Arnold Schwarzenegger all 6 foot and over.

An additional 800 women were surveyed on whether they believe height to be a factor of a man’s dateability, with 79% of women agreeing they would not date a man shorter than them.

The majority of women agreed that 6ft 1” is the sexiest height on a man (37%).

Jessica Leoni sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “Short men just don’t have much luck with the ladies, of course they are less likely to have an affair – they’re less desirable.

Let’s face it, we’re all looking for Mr.Tall, Dark and Handsome, married or not! Of course if Mr.Tall gets more attention from women he is then more likely to cheat. Height also gives men confidence which is an attribute that women find irresistible.

Short men on the other hand are at risk of developing a Napoleon complex – where they make up for their physical shortcomings with an overly assertive personality, not the sexiest quality. Not living up to the traditional gender norms can totally emasculate a man, no wonder shorter men are sticking to monogamy.”

Women Vote Blue Eyes as Sexiest Feature on a Man!

*  Eyes are the sexiest feature women look for in a man
*  Dad bods are in, and six packs are out!
*  Shockingly veins make it into the top 10, and hands are not sexy at all
*  The results comes as part of a survey of 1200 people on lllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading extramarital dating site

Eyes come in top place with 15% of the vote for sexiest feature on a man. With more than half of women agreeing that blue is the most attractive eye colour (52%). Perhaps the attraction to somebody’s eyes is more prevalent now we’re seeing so much of them behind masks.

Nice lips comes in second top feature (12%), followed by a strong jawline (10%).

Dad bods come in at 9th place with a respectable 6%, compared to only 2% of women voting for a man with a six pack (14th sexiest feature overall).

Veins are worth a mention, coming in at 10th place and 5% of the vote.

Hands come in last with only 1% of the vote.

Jessica Leoni sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “It’s all in the eyes, blue eyes in fact! Lips are sexy, so is a strong jawline – the face is winning prizes out here. 

What’s also interesting is dad bod is listed in the middle, compared to a six pack which is second to last on the list. Dad bods are comforting and homey, whereas a six pack is just intimidating. Nobody fancies a man who counts calories.

Who knew veins were so important? They are a sign of strength and health, and women are attracted to strong men.

Lucky for those with ugly hands – it seems they’re not important at all.”

Members of IllicitEncounters.com have voiced their opinions:

Louisa, 34, Bradford
“The first thing I notice in a man is their eyes, especially blue. You get lost in that ocean, and then boom, you’re in love, spellbinding. What is even coming out of his mouth? Who cares, his eyes do all the talking!”

Charlie, 39, London
“You can tell everything about a man just by looking into his eyes, they’re the window to the soul. The next best thing for me is veins, I know it’s a tad weird, but I find something really masculine and sexy about prominent veins.”

Kathleen 43, Bristol
“Six packs are not attractive to me, they just scream high maintenance. I prefer someone who’s a little more round in the middle – someone I can enjoy eating with.”

These are the qualities that women find most sexy in a man.
Eyes 15%
Nice Lips 12%
Strong Jawline 10%
Facial Symmetry 9%
Eyebrows 8%
Muscles 8%
Cracking Calves 7%

Cheating Soars As Schools Reopen

*32% increase in registrations on married dating site IllicitEncounters.com as schools reopen
*Over a quarter of parents have cheated straight after the school run
*Bored housewives make up 70% of registration surge 

IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading married dating site has seen a 32% spike in the first week of September, as parents of kids returning to school desperate to find an affair partner.

Women account for 70% of new registrations in the first week of September.

44% increase in activity on the website, as parents rush to exchange messages to set themselves up with a date, now there are less childcare commitments.

IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 400 of its members who have all had their kids return to school in the last week and found that 27% have cheated in the last 7 days – immediately after the school run.

Another 22% of parents have enjoyed some extracurricular fun once they’ve dropped the kids back home with their husband or wife.

Only 31% have not yet embarked on a physical affair in the last week.

Olive, a mother using IllicitEncounters.com said “This has been literally the least pleasurable and longest summer on record. Homeschooling, virtual lessons, trying to occupy the kids while practically everything is closed. There’s been no break, no holidays abroad, just childcare, homecare and hell. I have never wanted kids to go back to school more in my life. I have been desperate to have an affair since March!”

Charlotte another member on the site said “Not only have I had to entertain the kids for months on end, but my husband has also been WFH – I have barely had a minute alone all summer. I started having an affair in January, that got cut short because of covid. Months of longing and anticipation, I’m finally seeing him this week after I drop the kids off to school!”

Jessica Leoni sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “Parents have never been this stressed. I can’t even imagine how hard the summer and lockdown has been for families – no peace and quiet, an endless stream of cooking, cleaning and washing, and what’s more – many parents are in disgruntled marriages who are simply at the end of their tether and need a release from the monotony of marital life. 

Now that children are going back to school of course housewives will take this opportunity to be kind to themselves and have an affair. Our members have been starved of intimacy, they’re seeking connection and chemistry – and quite frankly, some adult company.”

In the past 7 days when did you cheat?

Straight after the school run 27%

After school when I dropped the kids back with my husband/wife 22%

On my lunch break 14%

I have not physically cheated in the last week 31%

Other 6%

Brit’s Vote on the World’s Sexiest Accent!

*79% of people agree that accents play a major part in a person’s datability 
*The sexiest female accent is German, and sexiest male accent is Scottish
*Irish fairs second best for female accents, and third for men’s
*American voted the least attractive accent
*The results comes as part of a survey of 2000 people on lllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

Can you be attracted to someone by the sound of their voice? Extramarital dating site IllicitEncounters.com has set tongues wagging in Britain as the public cast their vote on the most attractive accents.

A German accent is the most desirable accent on a woman, as voted by men. Second place is an Irish accent, and third place is French.

A Scottich accent is the sexiest accent on a man, as voted by women. Second place is South African, and third place is Irish.

72% of respondents agreed that Americans have the most undesirable accents in the world.

79% of people agree that accents play a major part in a person’s datability. 

62% of people have rejected someone on the basis of their accent.

24% of people admit they’ve been on a date before with someone whom they didn’t understand because of a thick accent.

Jessica Leoni sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “Looks like French has been dethroned entirely as the language of love, with Brits preferring German and Scottish. 

I am unsurprised that Germanic is the most likely to arouse our British men, it’s dominant, icy – with a certain elusive quality, and isn’t it that men always want what they can’t have? 

Scottish men. Scottish Accents. Need I say more, really? The accent is enchanting, like a seductive highland spell sweeping over you, it has a very primal sexual quality to it. 

There’s no denying the Irish twang has always been popular, coming in at a respectable second and third place as the sexiest accent for both women and men. 

Why do so many of us dislike the American accent? As Brits we’re known for being overly polite with a dry sense of humour, which is worlds apart from the awkwardly loud and foul mouthed American lingo. It’s insufferable.”

Members of IllicitEncounters.com voice their reasons for their vote:

Amelia, 28, Southwold

“I fancy the pants off the Scottish accent. It’s rugged, wild and uninhibited, just how I like it!”

George, 40, Bath
“I cannot resist a German accent, it’s so direct and formal, it creates fantasies of power and control. What’s sexier than a dominant, self assured woman?”

Harriet, 36, London

“French is like music to my ears, elegant and sophisticated. I find the French in general to be very passionate. Romancing in French possesses that certain je ne se quois that provokes lust you know? It’s irresistible.”

Vanessa, 50, Southampton

“I’ve always adored the South African accent. It is exotic, charming and unique. You can easily distinguish it in a crowd, it stands out.”

Patrick, 34, Manchester

“You just can’t beat an Irish accent. I think it’s the sexiest in the world.”

Track & Trace Ineffective as 1000’s of Brits may LIE!


* 3 in 5 cheats lie about their name and number for track & trace!
* 92% of people agree the test and trace system is an invasion of privacy
* 72% of adulterers feel no guilt for having affairs during the pandemic
* Less than half of us feel that the government’s response to Covid is going well
* Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

Track and trace won’t be effective as cheating brits likely to give incorrect contact details. 

800 members were surveyed on married dating site IllicitEncounters.com and found that 3 in 5 are using an alias to get into restaurants, bars and hotels.
 
92% of people agree that track and trace is an invasion of privacy.

Only 48% of us think the government’s response to covid is going well.

72% of love rats in the UK feel no remorse for cheating on their partners.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni, explains: “The public do not want to divulge their personal details, with most people agreeing it’s a breach of privacy.

Sharing your whereabouts will feel intrusive for many people, not just for men and women who are having extramarital relationships. 

This strategy is only going to work if people are being deadly honest – and there is simply no way to monitor that. More needs to be done to protect the public then leaving your name and number.”

Members of IllicitEncounters.com have voiced their opinions on track and trace:

Daytona, 39, Bristol
“Is track and trace even legal? I feel like it’s pointless at this stage of covid. Maybe if there were only a handful of cases circulating sure, but in the UK it’s ineffective. I think we need to just trust people are being sensible.”

Christopher, 48, London
“Yea ‘course I’ve not put my real name or number down – what? For my wife to find out I’ve been cheating, don’t be daft. For all intended purposes, I use an alias, and that’s not going to change ‘cos of covid.”

Fatima, Glasgow, 52
“I fear sharing my real details with every establishment I go to – how is my data being used? I won’t do it, it freaks me out.”

George, Manchester, 29
“I have to leave my house to go to work, if I was forced to self-isolate on the off chance I may have come into contact with someone who has covid, I could risk losing my job. It’s not worth it.”

Relationships are Unhappier Since Pandemic

 * 23% increase in marriage breakdowns amidst the pandemic
* 71% of people agree coronavirus has made their relationship worse
* Women are twice as likely than men to demand a break up
* Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

IllicitEncounters.com has seen a 23% increase of members changing their status from Married to Separated between the months of May and July compared to the same time last year.

It is unsurprising that more women than men changed their status to separated, with another study by a law form concluding two thirds of all divorces are initiated by women*

A further 800 members of the website were surveyed and staggering 71% of those agree they are less happy in their relationship as a direct result of coronavirus, suggesting that marriages have become toxic and unbearable in the lockdown. 

Those who agreed covid-19 has made their relationships worse, were asked what they are planning to do to improve their relationship satisfaction, with 42% admitting they hope an affair will make their marriage happier, and a further 22% are simply sticking around to see if things improve.

Kelsey, a member on IllicitEncounters.com said “We argue at the best of times, but covid has made our arguments worse. We can’t escape and let off some steam, I never realised till now how important that is. I don’t know how much more of this I can take.”

 Frank, another member on the site said “If it wasn’t for covid I’d have no reason to leave my wife, but the lockdown has opened my eyes to a lot of our relationship issues, issues I’ve ignored or buried in the past. It’s weird breaking up during a pandemic, but I think it’s a good thing.” 

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “Couples who probably wouldn’t even have dreamt of breaking up – are now running for the hills. If there were any issues before, they’ll have been amplified tenfold during the lockdown. Even the most secure relationships will have felt torturous at times.

Those who have decided to stay together, and sought out an affair instead, may just be able to save their marriages before it’s too late.”

Results

Out of the 71% who acknowledged their relationship is unhappier since covid-19 – we asked the following:

What are you planning to do to improve your relationship satisfaction?

I’m hoping an affair will make my marriage happier 42%

I’m simply sticking around to see if things improve 22%

Nothing -I love them, I don’t think I’ll ever leave them 17%

We’re going to have an open relationship 10%

I’m hoping to find someone to replace my partner 6%

Cheating Could Cause a Second Spike!

* 41% of adulterers set to book sex-getaways from the 4th of July
* 16% of love rats have no qualms about meeting more than one household for affairs
* Over half of those surveyed are not socially distancing when meeting lovers
* Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

Can you expect cheaters to stick to the rules? Love rats across the UK shun guidelines for intimacy – amidst the pandemic. A British legal firm has seen a 42% increase in divorce inquiries* since restrictions began, indicating that marriages are becoming unbearable in lockdown, these relationship breakdowns are making the need to cheat prevalent.

With lockdown restrictions easing this weekend, IllicitEncounters.com predicts cheating may cause a second spike.

600 members of the site were surveyed regarding how they are managing their affairs, and their feelings about dating during the covid-19 outbreak.

82% of adulterers admit to feeling less lonely since the lockdown restrictions have eased.

54% admit they have not been socially distancing when meeting.

A whopping 41% of adulterers are looking to book a staycation in the UK with their mistress or histress.
16% of adulterers admit they have no qualms about meeting more than one household for affairs.

33% of affair seekers already have a date planned for next week when restaurants and pubs are open.

72% of affair seekers are aware they are breaking guidelines to cheat.

83% think the reward of having an affair far outweighs the risk of contracting covid-19.

22% of cheats have self administered coronavirus tests to check they are in the clear before seeing their lovers.

England’s Chief Medical Officer, Christ Whitty has recently warned that “If people hear a distorted version of what’s being said, that says ‘this is all fine now, it’s gone away’ and start behaving in ways that they normally would have before this virus happened, yes, we will get an uptick for sure.”

Not everyone seems to be clear on what you should and shouldn’t do in the current climate. With many affair seekers choosing to cheat at this time, adultery could possibly contribute to a spike in coronavirus cases.

Gabrielle, a female member using IllicitEncounters.com said “I’ve been really well behaved during this lockdown, and feel it’s finally time to reward myself with a holiday in the countryside with a married man I’ve been seeing. I’m separated so I don’t need an excuse, and he’s just told his wife he’s visiting family in the area. I like dating married men because I don’t want the commitment of a full time relationship”

Emma, another female on the site said “My situation is different in the sense that I live with the person I’m cheating with. I’m in a long distance relationship with my partner who lives in Canada, and we’ve had no way of seeing each other for over 4 months. Me and my housemate really got on, and being cooped up inside all this time, well, things happen. I don’t regret it, I’ve been starved of intimacy so it’s been really great to have a physical relationship again. I still love my partner in Canada, and plan to reunite with him as soon as I can. I’ll obviously be keeping this affair a secret, the last thing I want to do is hurt him.”

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “It’s interesting to see how affair seekers have continued to keep the spark alive in their relationship. I am delighted to hear that those who are lonely or disheartened at home are able to get some fulfillment from talking to their lovers, communication is truly important right now. Although, we do advise to listen to government guidelines on our website and if meets are unavoidable to adhere to social distancing – we must all practice staying safe.

Lockdown has caused many of us to make sacrifices, and despite the stigma associated with affairs – they are just as much a relationship as any other, and a lot of our members have been lacking that connection for a very long time.”

He’s not Exercising, He’s having an Affair!

* Lockdown ease sends lustful loverats to cheat
* Exercise top affair alibi for men and women, with running in top place
* Second place excuse to cheat for women is sunbathing as the UK enters a heatwave
* Survey conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 240 of its members who have met up with their mistress or histress in the last week.

With lockdown restrictions having been marginally eased in the UK, the majority of men and women who are having affairs during lockdown are using exercise as an excuse to meet up.

A whopping 78% of men and 54% of women have said they are out exercising in the last week when actually they’ve been cheating.

Men are most likely to say they are going for a run (24%), followed by playing tennis (16%).

Top cheating excuse for women is going for a walk (20%).

The second highest rated excuse for women is sunbathing (15%) – coinciding with the recent heatwave in the UK. With forecasts predicted to go up to a scorching 26C in some parts of London today, this excuse is likely to continue to rise as the weather gets hotter.

Some of the excuses were gender specific.

Only men cite playing tennis (16%), going for a drive (11%), playing golf (9%), needing to cool off after an argument (3%) and dropping by the office (2%) as an excuse to cheat in the last week.

Whereas only women cite sunbathing (15%), needing a break from the kids (12%), yoga (7%), grocery shopping (6%), and visiting a garden centre (4%) as an excuse.

Going for a run comes in as the top excuse with 19% for both genders combined.

Dave, a member using IllicitEncounters.com said “It isn’t that unusual for me to be doing outdoor sports, I’ve always been a keen runner and a avid cyclist, leaving the house for a few hours a day sporting lycra is very ordinary, so exercise for me is the perfect excuse to cheat.”

Monika, a member using IllicitEncounters.com said “Oh come on, we’re all adults here. Seeing your lover during lockdown is no different to meeting up with a friend and socially distancing. I take my border collie for a walk and meet my other man in the park, so sue me. The weather has been so nice recently, I’ve just been telling my hubby I’m out sunbathing, the tan lines make it easy to prove.”

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “If people choose to meet their lovers during lockdown it is essential they adhere to social distancing rules. Let’s keep the exercise alive, and leave the sexercise till life returns to normal.

People who are in unhappy marriages often report feeling lonely. Lockdown has made these people feel even more isolated and alone. It’s expected that they would try and see each other, to fill that emotional void, and satisfy a basic social need of love and belonging.

Many people who are cheating are living a discreet double life, so in order to see their lover they need to come up with a justifiable reason. I’m not surprised exercise is the primary excuse to cheat for both genders, it’s one of the main reasons we are allowed to venture out during lockdown.”

You’re Caught! The Top Ten Apps that Bust Affairs!

* Apple users most likely to get caught cheating
* Second and third place are Facebook and Whatsapp apps 
* Adulterers have even been caught cheating by smart speaker Alexa
* Survey conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extramarital dating site

IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 500 of it’s female members who have previously caught their husbands cheating on apps!

Turns out you’re most likely to get caught cheating via iMessage (23%), followed by Facebook (18%) and Whatsapp (14%).

Shockingly there’s even a chance you can get caught cheating by your smart speaker, with a handful of affairs busted by Alexa (1%).

iMessage
Apple users beware – the top app to bust affairs is the iphone’s iMessage app – which is often linked to multiple devices such as ipads, laptops or even apple tv. Apple fans need to take note of where their messages are going to – and how easily these can be accessed. 23% of women have caught their partners cheating via iMessage.

Facebook 
Facebook is a minefield for infidelity, with 18% of women catching their husbands out via Facebook. Leaving your Facebook logged in and unattended can be a grave mistake around suspicious partners. This type of infidelity is opportunistic and convenient – and more often than not is with somebody you already know. 52% of women who caught their partners cheating on Facebook admitted to personally knowing their husband’s lover.

Whatsapp
Whatsapp may seem like a good place to have illicit chats – keeping conversations segregated from your normal mobile text messages, however, a whopping 14% of women have caught their partner cheating this way. If you don’t securely password protect your phone or switch off notifications and hide your apps – a quick Whatsapp stalk and any naughty messages can easily be discovered. 

Tinder
Tinder is the obvious app to catch a cheat, with 13% of affairs being busted by Tinder – having this app on your phone when you’re in a committed relationship is a cause for concern. Perhaps a smaller number of people get caught this way because they hide the app well in secret folders and have good password security on their phones.

Instagram
Adultery on instagram is ripe, with 11% getting caught this way. Not only is it easy to spot when your partner has been liking other womens pictures, it has an inbuilt chat interface that can get you in trouble. A favourite of a younger demographic, more than half of the women who discovered their husbands illicit antics on instagram are under 35 years old.

Zoom
A number of philanderers have had their love affairs exposed while on a Zoom call! 

Zoom, a popular video app, has seen a peak of registrations since lockdown, with many companies utilising Zoom for work meetings. We recommend Zoom for work, not pleasure, as 7% of cheating men have been caught this way.

Snapchat
Messages on snapchat may seem discrete, one minute they are there, next minute they are gone! Snapchat allows users to send pictures or videos which once viewed will self-destruct and disappear off your phone forever – that is, unless you screen grab them. Some husbands just can’t help themselves, and several wives have found shots of ladies on their phones from snapchat. 

Snapchat also has a snap maps feature that can track your partners location, another sure fire way to catch them cheating. You can even check who your partner has been snapchatting with the most with friends’ emojis – if it’s regularly with an unfamiliar lady this is sure to set off alarm bells. 6% of affairs have been busted by snapchat.

Find my friends
Find my friends is a tracking app – used to easily locate your friends or family. A favorite for parents wanting to keep tabs on their teenage kids, it’s also one of the top apps for finding cheating husbands. 4% of men have actually been caught in the act this way.

Kik
Kik is the favorite app for adultery, a previous study on IllicitEncounters.com confirmed that over half of users (57%) have downloaded Kik to chat to their lovers. Surprisingly only 3% of men have been caught cheating on Kik by their wives. 

Alexa
Alexa has made our lives easier in many ways, with voice activated technology allowing us to play music, movies, order a take away and even turn the lights on. Now, Alexa can go one step further and uncover a love rat! A wife can see what calls have been made directly through Alexa, a call search can quickly reveal the phone number of their husbands’ mistress. 

Alexa has another unique way of revealing an affair, one woman discovered her spouse’s infidelity by playing back audio recordings through Alexa, and hearing her husband’s lover giving voice commands in the recordings. 1% of wives have uncovered adultery through Alexa, low chance of getting caught this way, but possible nonetheless. 

IllicitEncounters.com sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “Apple users need to be extra careful when chatting to their mistress’ via iMessage – messages can easily show up on multiple devices – which really puts you in the danger zone. It’s recommended to stick to more discrete ways of communicating, password protect or hide apps and use aliases for your lovers instead of their real names..

If you want to have an affair it’s also best to keep it off social media – friending your lover online is way too conspicuous.”

What counts as cheating and what doesn’t during lockdown?

  • Sexy phone or video calls, as well as sexting and exchanging nudes are all considered cheating.
  • Likes on social media, flirty banter in a group chat, and chatting to an old flame fall into the not cheating bracket.
  • Porn is only cheating when it’s paid for, and faithful when it’s free!
  • The results come from a study of 2000 members on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest extramarital dating site.

It’s pretty clear to us all what constitutes infidelity, however, is it apparent what doesn’t?

The rules of engagement need revision during lockdown as love rats get creative with how they can cheat.

Illicitencounters.com has compiled a list of what is and what isn’t cheating based on suggestions and responses of 2000 of its members.

Cheating:
Sexy phone or video calls
Sexting
Exchanging nudes
Porn you’ve paid for
Using online dating sites
Catcalling 

Not Cheating:
Likes on social media
Free pornography
Flirty banter in group chats
Chatting to an old flame
Sexy thoughts about somebody else
Reading erotic novels

Sexy phone calls and video calls are unanimously considered cheating by men (98%) and women (100%)

A quarter more women than men agree that porn you’ve paid for is cheating.

1% more women (98%) than men (97%) agree that exchanging nudes is adulterous.

Nearly all of the men (96%) and women (91%) do not recognize likes on social media to be unfaithful. Keeping social media in the safe zone for committed couples.

There were a few discrepancies between genders, with 86% of men saying free ponography was not cheating compared to just 74% of women.

73% of men believe flirty banter in group chats is not considered an act of deceit, whilst just a little over half 56% of women agreed.

More women (70%)  than men (57%) concede that chatting to an old flame is not cheating.

Francesca, a member on IllicitEncounters.com said “ I have 2 kids with my ex husband, and I’m currently dating a fella who I met on the site a year ago. Up until a month ago he didn’t live with us. Since he’s moved in, I am finding out lots of things about him that are annoying me. It’s actually made me appreciate my ex much more, and we’ve been chatting casually as of late. My partner doesn’t like it, he thinks it’s cheating, but I haven’t crossed any lines – yet. I’ve got to admit though, I’ve been having a few erotic dreams about my ex and I’m starting to think this new relationship was a mistake.”

Stuart a member on the site said “Me and my wife are both part of a whatsapp group chat where inappropriate comments between friends is the norm, it’s harmless banter. I think porn paid or not paid should be allowed too to be honest, but each to their own. I don’t think catcalling should be considered cheating either, it’s just a laugh isn’t it? It isn’t really cheating if your partner never finds out!”

Sex and relationships expert Jessica Leoni said “It’s about time myths around what is and what isn’t cheating were debunked. We’re going to reach a virtual cheating spike over the next couple of months as tensions are high at home and spouses are looking for an outlet. 

I’m ecstatic that catcalling has made the cheating list, it isn’t acceptable even when you are single! 

It’s interesting to see that watching porn can be on both lists depending on whether it’s free or not.”
