​Affairs Save Marriages and Cheating is on the Rise!

nteogy9us7dn4i7zhsag

The UK’s largest married dating site IllicitEncounters.com will this month reach a milestone of 1 million members, that’s over 5% of the married population (or one person in every 10 couples).

The website has contacted some of the original members that joined the site when it first launched 11 years ago.

The site polled 200 of the 482 people still using the site since joining in the first year 2003-2004. The study shows that in the 11 years since joining, 80% of the customers are still married to the same person.

91% of those polled said that they would recommend having an affair and two thirds of those polled said that the affair had had a positive effect on their marriage. The average number of affairs had over this period of time is 5 affairs and the average length of the affair is 8 months.

It is really interesting that so many original members are still using the site, and to have had on average 5 affairs means that people are actively seeking to date outside of their marriage. 91% of affair seekers would recommend having an affair, challenging the notion that people regret having an affair – quite the opposite actually!

IllicitEncounters.com was conceived in 2003 by entrepreneur Steven Lines, becoming the first extra-marital dating site in the UK. In the first year almost 14,000 people signed up to the website. 11 years on, sign ups to the site have not lost momentum with over 150,000 Britons joining in the last 12 months alone suggesting that adultery is very much on the rise.

Extra-marital dating sites offer an easier way to find and sustain a relationship. More people than ever are choosing to find love online and with IllicitEncounters.com it is no different.

Simon Francis CEO of IllicitEncounters.com said “We are delighted at the outcome of our 11th year in the dating game; we just couldn’t be more excited about the present. Monogamy is just not for everyone, and we want to deliver the best and most discrete platform for like-minded individuals to communicate with each other. The fact that after all these years we still have some of our original members using the site – that is a true testament to what we are doing and 80% of those are still married to their primary partner, a great indication that IE has kept many marriages together”

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Claire Page said “The modern man and woman simply need more in a world that is constantly developing and evolving. Online dating has revolutionized the way in which affair seekers meet. In the past an affair could seriously damage a relationship, however with everything becoming digitalised, infidelity can very much be a private affair between lovers and in some cases has even saved marriages. Many people have come back to tell us their encounter has rekindled their primary relationship – with one in three having said an affair has had a positive impact on their marriage.

On the flip-side, those involved in very toxic relationships with their spouse have even been able to find love on the site, with success stories often involving marriages between two affair seekers – the site really does cater to every need. Affairs in relationships are imminent; it is becoming ordinary for couples to seek more than one relationship to fulfill them, not a rarity.”

Britons Vote on Sexiest Celebrity Chefs

zqdopxf0hf3dyxlklfcr

Nigella Lawson and James Martin have topped a poll on sexiest celebrity chefs according to new research released today by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest married dating site.

The affairs site polled 750 women and 700 men to vote on their celebrity chef crush with James Martin topping the poll with 29% of the vote and Nigella Lawson with 56%.

In the male category Gordon Ramsay came second with 20% of the vote, and in joint third place Jamie Oliver (11%) and Marco Pierre White (11%)

In the female category Rachel Khoo came in second with 13%, and third place Loraine Pascale (9%)

James Martin winning suggests his straightforward, down to earth and possibly his northern charm appeals to a large majority of women. It is surprising though that the alpha-male of the bunch Gordon Ramsay didn’t fare better. What came as a shock, however, is Jamie Oliver received a significantly small amount of votes even though he was voted the nation’s greatest celebrity chef of all time in a recent poll commissioned by The Hundred-Foot Journey.

It is also interesting that 55 year old Nigella Lawson beat the younger and fresher faced Rachel Khoo who is only 34, indicating that age is nothing but a number when it comes to levels of attractiveness. The fact that Nigella Lawson also has a history of controversy didn’t seem to deter the public vote, with alleged drug use and advocating fur to add to her media portfolio she is seen to have a rebellious streak, whereas Rachel Khoo comes across as the sweet girl next door with no bad publicity.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Claire Page said “ I’m astounded that Gordon didn’t win. He is dauntless and self-assured and his personality speaks volumes. Personally, I’m completely hooked on watching him take charge in the kitchen, and I’d place my bets that it’s a similar event in the bedroom! Forget Christian Grey, Gordon Ramsay any day!”

Sacré bleu – Rachel Khoo? More like Rachel Who, according to the results. It is Nigella Lawson that steals the nations hearts. An absolute beauty, quirky and mesmerising to watch; women want to be her and men want to marry her; the proof is in the pudding!

As a nation we are fascinated with celebrity chefs, after all food and sex are kindred; everybody knows that food has aphrodisiac qualities – think about it, champagne, chocolate and strawberries? It’s a recipe for romance.”

The UK’s Most Unfaithful Constituencies Revealed

lcoj4wz3wxcqph1z5odc

With election fever gripping the nation, IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading married dating website, has released data revealing the UK’s most unfaithful constituencies.

ElectionInfidelity.com cross-references the data of almost 1 million adulterers against the constituency they are in to reveal the illicit political hotspots within the United Kingdom.

Whilst conservatives are the most unfaithful voters, 4 of the top 5 most illicit constituencies are Labour:

1 Nottingham South Labour
2 South Cambridgeshire Conservative
3 Greenwich and Woolwich Labour
4 Newcastle-Upon-Tyne East Labour
5 Leyton and Wanstead Labour

Overall, Conservatives just pipped Labour to the post with the most unfaithful constituencies with a ranking of 13.67% against Labour’s 13.08%

Scotland has fared very well with only one constituency within the top 20. SNP voters also came in low with a ranking of only 8%

The most faithful constituency was Leigh in Greater Manchester.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Simon Francis said: “The results speak for themselves with the mainstream constituencies having the most unfaithful voters. What’s interesting is that smaller parties came in so low suggesting that the same moral compass that guides our personal lives is also prevalent within our voting habits. But if you can’t trust Labour or Conservative to stay faithful then how can we trust them to run our country.”

To see how your faithful your constituency is go to www.electioninfidelity.com
How the Data Works

The number of people cheating in each constituency was calculated using the postcode data of 995,000 members of IllicitEncounters.com. This was then ran against the number of people eligible to vote in each constituency to give a percentage or Infidelity Index for that area.

The party ranking was calculated by taking the party holding the seat in the constituency of all our members.

Seat party holder is based on who won the seat in the 2010 General Election.

Intelligent People More Likely to Cheat, Especially Women!

yaa0qvbcyabcgpmsqppc

Intelligent people are most likely to have affairs, especially women, according toIllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading married dating site.

The website looked at the educational qualifications of its nearly 1 million members in the UK. The findings show that 72% of female members have higher education qualifications of Bachelor’s Degrees or above whereas male members fared slightly lower with 65%.

Education, however, was not a standalone factor when analyzing a person’s intelligence. The website also cross examined the profiles of 500 currently active members of IllicitEncounters.com and found that 61% spoke more than one language, 48% described themselves as ‘creative’ and 34% ran their own business.

The majority of members on the site are in senior professions and earning high salaries (either in the higher rate or additional rate tax band), it is clear that intelligence impacts success.

“Appearing to have a successful life immediately makes you more desirable.” Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said, “It is unsurprising that successful people are faced with temptation when others are instantly attracted to them. Successful people tend to be high earners who have the financial means to indulge in an additional discrete relationship. They are also natural problem solvers and better negotiators who are more likely to take calculated risks – if they see a problem in their marriage but for whatever reason they cannot or do not want to leave, the obvious solution is to have an affair!”

The rise in women choosing to cheat on their spouses could be due to women choosing to focus on their careers and have children later in life, with the average age of women having kids currently at 30 years old. With better financial stability and less commitment, wives choosing to have an affair are on the increase.

The National Opinion Research Centre’s General Social Survey of American Society 2013 confirmed there has been an increase in women having affairs by 40%, while men having affairs remained consistent at 21%. IllicitEncounters.com has also seen an increase of 18% of female members joining the site in the last 12 months alone. With better financial stability, better education and less commitments, attached women choosing to take on another lover are on the rise.

​Horse-Riding is the Top Fantasy First Date!

wnquvmo8krrqnikoumkz

If you want to seduce a woman, bring a mare with you because new research by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s top married dating site, shows that horse-riding is the top fantasy first date. 300 women on the site were asked what their ideal first date was and the most popular choice was ‘horse riding’ with 37% of the votes, beating ‘cinema’, ‘sailing’, ‘candle lit dinner’ and ‘drinks in a pub’.

“When women think about their ideal first date they associate passion and exciting things with romantic success,” psychologist Lucy Redford said, “Although something very over-the-top like a flight to Paris is intimidating and too extravagant, something active like horse-riding takes your mind off the pressure of a first date, it’s fun and shows you’ve put thought into the date because it requires more effort than a few pints in the local. Horses are also associated with wealth, which in itself is attractive, and require a lot of attention and care – and most women look for an attentive, caring man.”

“I am quite surprised that the cinema was the second most popular date,” Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said, “Although it’s low-key and it takes the pressure off making great conversation, it can be quite awkward sitting in the dark with someone you don’t know very well. There’s something incredibly romantic about riding a horse alongside a lover, it doesn’t surprise me that it’s the number one fantasy first date. Hollywood has glamorised horse-riding with movies like Seabiscuit, Hidalgo, Something to Talk About and All the Pretty Horses, and there’s something incredibly passionate about darting into the wind on a horse – it’s liberating and exciting.”

‘Horse riding’ scooped 37% of the votes, beating ‘cinema’ (21%), ‘sailing’ (16%), ‘candle lit dinner’ (13%) and ‘drinks in a pub’ (9%). The least popular first dates were hot air balloons trips (2.5%), a football match (2.5%), a trip to a museum (2%), a massage (1.5%), a trip abroad (1%), fringe stand-up comedy (1%) and shopping (0.5%).

​Rise in Estate Agents bringing their mistresses to Show Houses!

dzqklylr3i5ixvoh1nso

There has been a sharp rise in estate agents bringing their mistresses to show houses, both for fantasy house shopping and bedroom rendezvous, according to married dating website, IllicitEncounters.com. One in twenty five (3.8%) people on the adulterous site claim to have had, or currently be in, affairs with estate agents. These people were asked why estate agents are great mistress/ histress material and the top three reasons were:

1)They’re great liars.

2)They’re financially stable.

3)They’re professional and understand the boundaries of an affair.

This fantasy house shopping is well-received by their partners because it “brings a sense of escapism” according to 89 mistresses in London. The most popular show house affair locations were Richmond, Chelsea, South Kensington and Canary Wharf.

“One customer told us she had been taken to a house on Billionaire’s row in Hampstead, North London, which was on the market for £65 million!” Claire Page, spokesperson for Illicit Encounters said, “The growing trend isn’t difficult to understand – show houses are cheaper and more comfortable than a hotel, although if I thought a high-earning estate agent was bringing me to a show house to save on money, I wouldn’t be impressed, but then again, unlike a hotel bill, it’s more discrete as it doesn’t leave a money trail, so it’s a safer option.”

“Thatcherism began the fantasy house shopping craze.” Psychologist Lucy Redford said, “When the Prime Minister declared her belief in a ‘property owning democracy’, it made the common family believe that through hard work and practical thrift, they could own their own house. For the first time in history, the idea of substantial assets being available to everyone was incredibly attractive – it brought financial security and a great deal of freedom. It’s the same factors that make property buying today so attractive. Fantasy house shopping and property porn are bigger than ever and so the rise of estate agents and property developers bringing their mistresses to lavish houses isn’t difficult to understand.”

​Increase Number of Geriatric Affairs, thanks to Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel!

gtixruz213vkhazspzg5

Hollywood has inspired a generation in their mature years to get married and start affairs, according to new research by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s top married dating website, who have seen an 87.5% over the past two years in members over the age of 50.

Although there’s an increase in the number of people getting married in later life, there is also an increase in affairs – over 49,123 of members on IllicitEncounters.com are aged 60+ (an increase of 60% since 2013), while 137,040 are aged 50-59 (an increase of 115% since 2013).

“Our research shows that 71% of women get a confidence boost after an affair. The two biggest age brackets of these women were 50-59 and 40-49 respectfully,” Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said, “We believe it’s this confidence boost that helps them leave a bad marriage or else start a new affair – one they deserve! Movies like The Quartet, The Second Best Marigold Hotel, A Song for Marion and The Hundred Foot Journey have all inspired adventure in later life, and love is the greatest adventure of all. Life is short, and it’s shorter when you’re in your mature years. People seem to get a wake-up call with an illness, stroke or health scare and realise how precious time is, and they’d be better off spending it with someone who makes them happy, rather than being trapped in a stale marriage”

There are currently 988,604 members on IllicitEncounters.com, and 186,163 are aged 50+, which means one in every five (19%) having an affair are over 50.

49,123 of members on IllicitEncounters.com are aged 60+ (an increase of 11,882 since 2013, and a 60% increase on the annual average), while 137,040 are aged 50-59 (an increase of 41,293 since 2013, and a 115% increase on the annual average).

After almost 30 years of decline, the number of marriages began to rise since 2013, led by women in their late 50s and male pensioners, to almost 250,000 marriages in 2013, according to the Office for National Statistics.

71% of women get a confidence boost after an affair. Of the women who said they got a confidence boost after an affair, the most popular age brackets were as follows:

1)50-59 (31%)

2)40-49 (24%)

3)60-69 (20%)

4)30-39 (11%)

5)21-29 (8%)

6)70-79 (6%)

The Dirtiest Places Brits Have Sex!

pm1c3z0xndybmvlxa44v

Research released today by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest married dating site, shows just how naughty Brits are and how many of us get in it on in unusual and not always the most hygienic places – 500 surveyed were asked where they had sexual relations. The mile high club is less popular than people think – only 0.4% (2 in 500 people) said they had sex in an airplane; 6% had sex on a train or tube; 34% had sex in a toilet; 5.4% had sexual relations on a bus; 7% got hot and heavy in a tent; 76% had intimacies in a car, while 68% got down and dirty on kitchen surfaces.

Microbiologist Rhiannon Hayes said “The London underground is one of the dirtiest places in Britain. Toilets obviously contain a lot of bacteria but interestingly, we found higher levels of bodily fluid in the disabled toilets than in the non-disabled. Train seats are known to contain traces of semen, faeces, urine, alcohol, blood, grease, human skin, hair and sugar. In terms of household bacteria, the kitchen is a hive for germs. The average kitchen surface has very dangerous bacteria such as e-coli, listeria, salmonella and campylobacter – which can cause paralysis. Tents are also crawling with outdoor bacteria such as Xanthomonas campestris, while cars contain over 600 bugs and ten times more bacteria than a public toilet seat.”

“Presumably more people get it on in disabled than non-disabled toilets because there’s more room,” Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said, “I don’t see the appeal of intercourse on the tube, but the evidence shows it happens. Apart from anything else, it’s incredibly unhygienic, but when passion is high and alcohol is involved, we all do things that aren’t exactly graceful. It doesn’t surprise me that the mile-high club isn’t as popular as Hollywood movies imply – have you ever been inside an airplane toilet? There’s hardly enough room to move, let alone get it on! The results I found most shocking were the amount of bacteria in cars. People are very conscious of keeping their homes clean but don’t pay as much attention to the interior cleanliness of their cars.”

Less than a third of people (31%) surveyed cleaned their car annually, while one in nine said they didn’t wipe down surfaces, and two in three said they never hoover their car’s interior.

The First Thing Women do After a Divorce is get a Hair Makeover!

mg5yhzqvqx0dggud2gvl

The First Thing Women do After a Divorce is get a Hair Makeover!

The most common first thing a woman does after getting divorced is get their hair done, before calling their mother, meeting up with their girlfriends or going for a drink, according to new research by married dating website IllicitEncounters.com. Women tend to follow in the footsteps of Cheryl, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Williams and Jennifer Aniston, all whom had hair makeovers after a breakup.

The research, which surveyed 200 divorced or legally separated female members of IllicitEncounters.com, also found that women having an affair spend up to three times more on visits to beauty salons and hairdressers than their faithful counterparts – one would guess they want to look their absolute best for their illicit lover.

Women also open up more to their hairdressers than some of their best friends or close family members. 62% of women (124) said they would sooner tell their relationship problems to their hairdressers than their mother, father or siblings. 68% of women said they would tell their hairdressers if they were having an affair before telling their best friends.

The top three reasons were:

  • 1)I get less judgement from my hairdresser.
  • 2)My hairdresser doesn’t know my partner so I can be more honest.
  • 3)They will be more honest with me because they know me but they’re not too close to give me a biased opinion.

More women tend to open up more when they’re getting highlights, treatments or cuts, than when they’re having a blow-dry as they’re not shouting over hairdryers.

Psychologist Lucy Redford said “There is a known psychological effect occurring between a hairdresser and their clients, they offer a non-bias, non-judgment environment which makes women feel comfortable in sharing the secrets. Clients place a lot of trust in someone cutting their hair and there is an extension of this trust when they confide in them, oftentimes telling them things they wouldn’t tell their closest friends or family members.”

However this theory doesn’t convert to men, who are surprisingly more likely to share their innermost secrets with a selected best friend rather than a stranger such as a hairdresser or a barber. Possibly the ‘bros before hoes’ code is still going strong among male adulterers enabling them to feel secure and supported whatever their actions may be.

“It makes perfect sense that women go straight to the hairdressers after a breakup.” Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said, “There’s something incredibly rejuvenating and reinvigorating about a hair makeover and it’s exactly what you need when you’ve ended something as emotional and physical as a relationship.”

​Mini and Merc drivers are the Biggest Adulterers!

pvwtkpcekygovvtxuyei

Mercedes and Mini Coopers are the most common cars driven by Britain’s adulterers, according to a new study by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s top married dating site. The top car for female members is a Mini Cooper with 19.5% of the votes, while the most popular car for male members is a Mercedes with 23% of the votes. If your spouse drives a Toyota they’re less likely to be having an affair, because the two cars driven least by adulterers are a Prius (0.41% of votes) or a Yaris (0.82%).

“It doesn’t surprise me that the top five cars most driven by male adulterers are all luxury cars,” Claire Page spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said “Mercedes, BMW, Jaguar, Bentley and Audi all top the list because our typical male member is better educated, earns more and is more successful than the average British male. Our male members tend to have a lot of disposable income. Annual male membership prices range from £999.99 to £2,040. If they can afford this they’ll most likely have the best of everything in life, including a mistress! Mercedes Benz is the most adulterous car in Britain, their branding clearly depicts this sort of lifestyle – all their advertising sells sex. They’ve had ads banned on numerous occasions and their Superbowl commercial featured a Playmate. It’s no wonder Merc-drivers tend to be men looking for an affair to improve their sex lives!”

Space doesn’t seem to be an issue for female adulterers because the Mini was the top choice for the average mistress, almost doubling the female third most popular option of Mercedes.

“In the same way that a dog takes on the personality of its master, cars tend to reflect personality traits of their owner.” Claire Page said “Interestingly, 68% of men said they associated a ‘flirtatious’ personality with Mini drivers, and this prejudice rang true with it being the car driven most by female adulterers.”

The Prius is largely associated with being boring and safe. In Will Ferrell’s The Other Guys, it’s referred to as a ‘tampon on wheels’. This stereotype seems to be accurate in this study because those driving a Prius tend to be the most faithful, securing only 0.41% of votes, 56 times less than Mercedes drivers!

Those having an affair are keener to update their car more regularly – 69% of IllicitEncounters.com members said they wouldn’t keep a car for more than three years. They also know what they like and tend to stick to it – 62% said they would refresh to a new model before a new brand, while only 38% said they would consider changing brands. 71% of men said they believed driving a nice car would impress a date, while only 32% of women said they would care what their date thought about their car.

The Cars Driven Most by Female Adulterers Percentage
1. Mini Cooper 19.5%
2. Audi 18.71%
3. Mercedes 11.57%
4. BMW 8.37%
5. Volkswagen 6.19%
The Cars Driven Most by Male Adulterers Percentage
1. Mercedes 23%
2. BMW 18.71%
3. Jaguar 11.57%
4. Bentley 8.37%
5. Audi 6.19%
The Cars Driven Least by Adulterers Percentage
1. Toyota – Prius 0.41%
2. Toyota – Yaris 0.82%
3. Kia – Rio 1.02%
4. Ford – Fiesta 1.14%
5. Nissan – Micra 1.26%
