Flirty Forties – The best time to have sex!

snia0fmemff07r2zpcf6

As The UK’s leading married dating site today hits 1 million members, IllicitEncounters.com is releasing a survey showing that having sex in your forties is the best period.

It seems quality trumps quantity when it comes to sexual satisfaction; the UK’s largest married dating site has revealed that our 40’s are the best decade to have sex, even though we’re having less of it.

The affairs site surveyed 385 women and 443 men and found that 37.4% of women and 34.5% of men believed that the best time to have sex was in their 40’s.

The next best age is 30’s with 23% of women selecting this age and 26.2% of men.

The study also concluded that men and women have the most sex in their 20’s with 56% voting for twenties to be the peak in their sex life with the majority of their sexual liaisons happening at this time. Forty’s faired significantly lower with only 12% suggesting that the number of sexual partners you have is less significant to the quality of the sex.

The main reason for those selecting their forties was that they felt more sexually experienced at this time.

This completely quashes a recent survey by Healthspan saying that most people have gone off sex by the age of 41. It seems those opting to have an affair experience a whole new lease of life sexually, and whilst they may have gone off their partners they have rediscovered the joy of sex with IllicitEncounters.com.

A female member on the site commented ‘‘I think women as they get older realise they deserve better sex and therefore they demand more attention’ with another adding ‘In my thirties I had small children and I was more committed to my domestic arrangements. Now in my forties I feel free and liberated. The kids are older and less demanding on me.’ However, men seemed to be a little more blasé with one member saying ‘To be honest so far, given the chance, I’d have sex all the time, at any stage through my life to date’

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said “The twenty year olds are having plenty of sex, but the forty year olds are actually enjoying it. Forty year olds have less hang-ups than 20 year olds, and a plethora of experience under their wing – they really know what they want out of their intimate life – and that’s great sex! The fact that many people said they felt a heightened sex drive at this time also suggests that our forties are the best time to rediscover our sexuality. By making better choices in sexual partners were able to enjoy sex with the right person, which plays a massive factor in how good the sex actually is. This is particularly significant when taking into account we have the most sexual partners in our twenties and yet people feel that sex in your twenties is the worst! We are in much better control over our sexual satisfaction the older we get, choosing quality over quantity!”

​‘Fishing’ is voted the number one worst excuse for affairs!

joccineki3ieuu8rvdzu

According to new research released today by Illicit Encounters, the UK’s top married dating site, the top excuse people get caught out on when having an affair is ‘I’m going fishing’, followed quickly by ‘going to the library’ and ‘going to play darts’.

2,000 Illicit Encounters members were asked what the worst excuse was their spouse gave them when sneaking off with their lovers and out of a list of 40 options, including ‘I’m going to the bank’, ‘I need to get the car serviced’ and ‘I’m getting my eyes tested’; ‘I’m going fishing’ came out on top with 28% of the votes.

When this 28% (541 people) were asked ‘Why do you think your spouse is not fishing?’ the top six reasons were –

  • 1)The weather is too bad for fishing
  • 2)We don’t live near a lake/the sea/a river
  • 3)They don’t even own a fishing rod!
  • 4)They’ve got no interest in fishing
  • 5)They fish very late
  • 6)They don’t answer their phone when they go ‘fishing’

“What’s most shocking about this research is the feeble excuses people make when having affairs – some of them are so transparent!” Claire Page, spokesperson for Illicit Encounters said, “One would think that people would go to more of an effort to be discrete when they’re sneaking off. Perhaps they think they’re convincing, perhaps the marriage has become so stale that they don’t care, or perhaps women can read their husbands better than they think and can tell when they’re lying.

“The biggest irony about this research is that escapism is associated with fishing, but this is the main reason people have affairs too – because they want escapism from their mundane, stale marriages.”

When the 2,000 IE members were asked what would be a better excuse, the top five suggestions were:

  • 1)I’m going to football training
  • 2)I’m working late
  • 3)I’m going to the gym
  • 4)I’m volunteering for a local charity
  • 5)I’m meeting my friends in the pub

Chefs create the food of love – the no.1 best skill is cooking in affairs!

qqn33dld4xkpaxoaa79f

The ability to cook a good meal is the most desirable skill in an extra marital partner, according to a recent survey by Illicit Encounters, the UK’s top married dating site. 500 women were asked ‘what’s the most vital skillset for your potential partner – DIY, playing a musical instrument, speaking in public, dancing, speaking a foreign language, or cooking a good meal?’ The ability to stimulate taste buds came out on top!

“The result of our survey proves that the old saying ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ also applies to women.” Claire Page, spokesperson for Illicit Encounters said, “People who seek affairs also seek escapism from their often boring, mundane lives. Both husbands and wives in stale marriages can begin to resent their partner if they have to do the bulk a chore they don’t enjoy, such as cooking. It can naturally become a huge priority for them that their new partner has cooking skills so they don’t have to do the cooking themselves.”

The research also found that over 78% (394) of the surveyed women on IllicitEncounters.com would like to be wined and dined at least once a week, and 315 of these women would prefer home-made meals.

“There are many different reasons these women prefer home-made meals. Firstly, it’s less time in public at cafes and restaurants, which means more discretion. Secondly, for health and vanity reasons because home-made meals are generally healthier and contain less calories because you know and control what’s going into them. Thirdly, it shows that you’ve put more effort into the meal, cooking it yourself rather than just going to a restaurant and getting someone else to do the work. Women want to feel wanted and important. Knowing someone’s gone to the trouble of cooking something from scratch – that in itself is an aphrodisiac!”

The top ten meals women wanted were:

  • 1) Full English breakfast
  • 2) Shepherd’s pie
  • 3) Beef stew
  • 4) Lasagne
  • 5) Chicken Fajitas
  • 6) Spicy tacos
  • 7) Roast chicken and vegetables
  • 8) Spaghetti bolognaise
  • 9) Fish and chips
  • 10)Chicken Caesar salad

The top ten desserts were:

  • 1) Chocolate brownies
  • 2) Chocolate fondant
  • 3) Ice cream
  • 4) Tiramisu
  • 5) Bakewell tart
  • 6) Eton mess
  • 7) Warm apple pie
  • 8) Scones with clotted cream and jam
  • 9) Crème brûlée
  • 10)Battenberg cake

New Year, New You? Women are resolving to make 2015 the year of the Affair!

jxtsy4rr7y0rndwbiykd

The New Year marks a time for change and for thousands of women it marks a time for self-renovation. However in 2015, there has been an unusual growing trend for over 3,500 women across the UK – their New Year’s Resolution is to have an affair!

Research from extra-marital dating site IllicitEncounters.com shows that more and more women are seeking affairs online as a means for self-improvement. Since the beginning of January, the site has gained over 3,500 female members – a record in the site’s 11 year history.

These new female members are looking for short, passionate love affairs, which they hope will restore their self-worth and put their marriage or long-term relationship into perspective.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Claire Page said, “There has been a clear change in attitudes toward adultery in the last few years, but 2015 indicates something much bigger.

“Women are coming to us with more awareness about their needs than ever before. From their profiles, you can see that our new ladies are looking for something more than just a quick fumble – they are looking for fulfillment, they expect something life-altering.”

Claire said that celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow showing understanding towards people having affairs, rather than just condemning them, is part of a large change in society, in thinking an affair can be beneficial.

Tiffany, 39, from West London, has been a member of the site for just over a week, “My decision to join was made out of frustration. Over Christmas, I spent over 3 weeks confined with my husband, who, after 12 years of marriage, only pays attention to me if I block his view of the television. I want to feel young and sexy again, I want to feel like a better woman. As my partner has made it clear he is incapable of helping me out, I have employed a more drastic measure.”

IllicitEncounters.com have taken on extra staff to deal with the record number of new sign-ups received in the last month, and now have nearly one million members across the UK.

The UK’s Leading extra-marital affairs website IllicitEncounters.comis the UK’s largest and longest running dating site for married people.

Established in 2003, we have been providing a meeting place for like-minded married and attached people for over 11 years. Our members have one thing in common: they are all looking for a little romance outside their current relationship. Whether it’s the occasional bit of flirtatious chat, a regular coffee date, or a full-blown sexual relationship, our website offers a diverse range of affairs.
