Sex Is On Fire, As Rock Listeners Are More Likely to Have an Affair

  • Rock fans are more likely to have an affair, with 27% of adulterers on IllicitEncounters.com citing rock as their favourite genre
  • In 2nd place was country music, followed by blues
  • The joint least adulterous genres were R & B and House
  • Over half of respondents (55%) wouldn’t date someone if they had opposite musical tastes
  • Sexy symbols, such as Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison, have undoubtedly influenced their fans with their adulterous misdemeanours
  • The survey was conducted by IllicitEncounters.com, the leading authority on infidelity.

(Illicit) sex is on fire, so says a new survey. IllicitEncounters.com, the leading authority on infidelity, surveyed over 1,000 of their members and found that fans of rock music are most likely to pursue an extramarital affair.

Over a quarter (27%) of respondents chose rock music as their favourite genre, which included the sub-genres of punk rock, alternative rock, grunge, prog rock and rock ‘n’ roll.

Country music came second with 20%, blues third with 14%, while pop music and funk & soul rounded off the top five, receiving 12% and 7% of the votes respectively.

Other genres such as metal, rap and hip hop, r & b, house and electronic/dance received just a small percentage of the overall vote.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Christian Grant, said:

“With the average age of men and women on IllicitEncounters being approximately 47 and 42-years-old respectively, it’s perhaps of little surprise that rock music come out on top, with many of our members growing up in an era where some of the biggest rock bands of all time were at their peak.

That’s not forgetting the inextricable links between rock music and sex. Whether it’s Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones, Jim Morrison of The Doors or Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, rock music has always provided sex symbols, many of which have led the way with regards to promiscuity.

There’s no doubt that many of our members would have idolised and have been influenced by these artists at some point in their youth.”

Interestingly, the survey also revealed that over half (55%) of members wouldn’t date someone whose music taste is the polar opposite of their own, as Grant explains:

“When establishing a connection with someone, be it friendship or romance, you’re always looking for some common ground, and music is a biggie. Everyone likes music in some form or another, so it’s almost guaranteed to come up in conversation. With so many people passionate about music, vastly different tastes can be a real turnoff.

On the other hand, there are still plenty of people who relish discovering new music that they wouldn’t otherwise go out of their way to listen to, so a partner with different tastes can expand their horizons.”

The full results are as follows:

Genre of Music Percentage of Vote
Rock 27%
Country 20%
Blues 14%
Pop 12%
Funk & Soul 7%
Classical 6%
Rap & Hip Hop 5%
Metal 3%
Other 2%
Electronic/Dance 2%
House 1%
R & B 1%

Top Ten Songs People Listen to after a Breakup

A poll with 500 votes by married dating website IllicitEncounters.com found that 79% of people listen to more music after a breakup, and showed what the top breakup songs were.

“Interestingly, we found that Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ is the most popular song immediately after breakups,” Claire Page, spokesperson for Illicit Encounters said, “But Gotye’s ‘Someone That I Used to Know’ is the most popular song two-weeks after breakups. This really reflects the emotional process of a breakup – initially sorrow and then anger. At first, breakups are emotionally exhausting, but time is a healer and after a while you pull yourself together and realise that the person you were with wasn’t meant for you, or you may even look back with fondness for what once made you happy.”

The Top Break Up Songs were:

  • 1)Adele – Someone Like You
  • 2)Eric Carmen – All By Myself
  • 3)Bon Iver – I can’t make you love me
  • 4)Michael Bolton – How am I supposed to live without you?
  • 5)Christina Perri – Jar of Hearts
  • 6)Gotye – Somebody that I used to know
  • 7)Joy Division – Love Will Tear us Apart
  • 8)Harry Nilsson – Without You
  • 9)Roxette – It Must Have Been Love
  • 10)Sinéad O’Connor – Nothing Compares to You

“Music can be incredibly therapeutic,” psychologist Lucy Redford said, “It’s been proven to help with anxiety, stress, relaxation and depression. Music is a core function in our brain. The power of sound is immense. Our brain is primed early on to process and react to sound. Studies have proven that day-old infants can detect the differences in rhythmic patterns. For centuries, mothers relax and sooth their babies with lullabies. Speaking purely evolutionary, music precedes language. It isn’t fully clear to us why, but our brains are wired to automatically respond to music. In a way, music helps our survival because healthy minds outgrow and outlive unhealthy minds, and healthy minds mean healthy bodies.”
