The Results Are In! Infidelity Trumps Dieting As The Best Way to Lose Weight

lose-weight-sex_rotator
Eager to lose weight? Dump Atkins, have an affair! That’s the word from Illicitencounters.com, the UK’s biggest dating website for married couples, with their research painting a clear picture: more people are losing weight by having an affair than by dieting.

The new research disproves the myth that there are no shortcuts when it comes to shedding pounds after a poll of 1,600 female customers found you can in fact cheat your way slim.

Respondents were posed the following question: ‘Have you found an affair a more effective tool for losing weight than a diet?’ An overwhelming 60% of respondents said yes.

25% claimed that they were unsure, while the remaining 15% disagreed with the majority verdict.

Spokesperson for Illicit Encounters, Claire Page, states, “Our members join Illicit Encounters to find someone who can offer them the romance, passion and desire that has gone missing from their current relationship. But now, we’re seeing that having an affair directly results in some undeniably positive side-effects.”

“Everyone wants to impress – whether it’s their husbands, boyfriends or someone entirely new – people lose weight for others as much as they do it for themselves. Our members have spent all too long in an unhappy relationship, so they want to make their new one last,” she adds.

“Consequently, they push themselves that little bit more. They walk a little longer and run a little faster… they want to feel better about themselves, all to impress the new man or woman in their life. Put down the weight-loss pills ladies and have an affair!”

Shelley, a customer from Gravesend, gave further credence to the positive effect that an affair has on one’s weight, “I’ve always tried diets. Atkins diet, NHS diet… you name it, I’ve probably tried it – but I never enjoyed it. There was just too much maintenance involved. Keeping track of my calorie count, curating special shopping lists, doing away with most of my favourite foods… it’s a little much.”

“To be honest, it isn’t something that I had originally anticipated, but since meeting new men on IllicitEncounters.com, I’ve been eager to better myself. I’ve exercised more, I’ve engaged in new activities [with him], and being more sexually active can only help.”

​Why do people have affairs? Not because of sex!

wq8efqrgkwt8sntdci72

Commitment is the rule of thumb for most relationships, and yet infidelity is the unspoken fact.

IllicitEncounters.com has discovered that most people have affairs because they are seeking companionship rather than sex.

Despite the recent hacking scandal of a similar dating site – people joining extra-marital dating sites are still on the rise.

With over 1,000,000 members and approximately 7% of the married population using IllicitEncounters.com – perhaps it’s time we began to tackle the reasons why more people are having affairs rather than condemning the affair itself.

The affairs site screened 400 of its members and found a re-occurrence of certain issues that lead people to have affairs. The top 5 scenarios were-

Companionship

– A lack of emotional intimacy is the cause of straying for so many adulterers. Many members complain of feeling invisible to their partner – undervalued, unappreciated and taken for granted. Many people choose to have an affair to feel that emotional connection once again.

Family

– Contrary to popular belief, many affair seekers choose to have an affair because they do not want to break up their family. Their relationship may have disintegrated, and although no longer a happy husband and wife – they may still make a good father and mother. Many adulterers choose to take on an affair because they do not want to abandon their children, having an affair allows them to fulfil needs without upsetting the balance.

Financial Reasons

– The people that fit into this bracket tend to be very unhappy in their marriage, but for financial reasons they cannot break it off. They may have invested their money into joint ventures such as buying a house or starting a business, they may be financially dependent on their other half or they may simply end up worse off if they were to abandon the marriage.

Permission

– A lot of people using extra-marital affairs sites have express permission from their spouse to do so, many belong to open relationships for example. There is also a high number of members on the site that belong to the ‘carer’ category where for medical reasons the partner who can no longer engage sexually with their spouse will give permission for them to seek out an extra-marital relationship.

Sex

– Sex plays a significant part in why people choose to cheat. However, it was also the least quoted reason out of the 400 people interviewed. Sex is an important factor in any relationship, and for many married couples their sex life can dwindle, some people have also said that they have stopped fancying their partner as the years have gone by. Missing the passion and excitement a new liaison can bring can tempt a spouse to seek out a lover to ignite that spark again.

Claire Page spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said “Most people don’t take on an affair lightly; it is usually a last resort. Nobody gets married and immediately looks forward to cheating on their partner. However, it seems now in this modern day and age that an affair is a natural progression in a long-term relationship, and occurs due to a number of factors such as personal needs and external life influences.

Once a relationship becomes long term, many marriages end up becoming more like business partnerships – you have joint finances and a joint responsibility to bring up your children – however the companionship and sex may have become rather lacking.

Maybe the people who allow each other to have an affair have got it right – building on an already strong foundation of trust, the ultimate support would be to give your partner the green light to explore where an affair-journey may take them. The bottom line is people have a multitude of reasons to embark on an affair. People join married dating sites and cheat because they can – and maybe it’s time we let them.”

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!”

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.

Most Romantic Food of all Time: Top Ten Foods that get you in the Mood!

wxuyywvhktxwmd1fhvou

Making someone laugh, being physically attractive and intellectually stimulating are all things we associate with turning someone on but new research by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK and Ireland’s largest married dating site, shows that food can be more arousing than any of these. On a first date, good food is almost twice as important as the date’s sense of humour.

500 members on Illicit Encounters were asked ‘what’s the most important thing on a first date?’ The top five answers were as follows:

  • 1)My food is good (32%)
  • 2)My date has a good sense of humour (20%)
  • 3)I look attractive (18%)
  • 4)My date looks attractive (12%)
  • 5)The conversation is intellectually stimulating (10%)

Dietician Nadine Walters said food is so important because it stimulates more of the senses (taste, smell, sight and hearing) than conversation (hearing) or physical presentation (sight and maybe touch). This is a list of her top ten aphrodisiacs and why they turn you on:

  • 1)Chocolate – “Large quantities of chocolate can lead to a rapid rise in blood sugar and a consequent drop below normal levels resulting in fatigue,” Walters said “But cocoa contains phenyl ethylamine, a stimulant that conjures feel-good emotions that makes you feel like getting close to someone and think sex is a fabulous idea.”
  • 2)Red wine – “We all know that alcohol helps you relax and unwind, but red vino contains resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant which helps blood flow and improves circulation before sex which makes you more sensitive.”
  • 3)Asparagus and avocados – “These super-healthy vegetables contain Vitamin E which helps your body produce hormones like oestrogen, testosterone and progesterone, all which circulate in your bloodstream and stimulate sexual responders like the clitoris and the vagina.”
  • 4)Chilies – “Not only do they boost energy, improve memory and even fight fat, they also contain capsaicin, a chemical which boosts circulation to get blood pumping and stimulates nerve endings, which means you’ll feel turned on. Result!”
  • 5)Oysters – “Perhaps the notion of gooey wobbly shellfish being an aphrodisiac is a bit hard to imagine but they’re brimming with zinc, a mineral which increases the production of testosterone, which increases your sex drive.”
  • 6)Bananas – “They give you potassium, a key nutrient to strength, which means when you orgasm, the contractions are very intense.”
  • 7)Pomegranates – “Full of antioxidants, they protect the lining of blood vessels, and improve circulation, which means increased genital sensitivity.”
  • 8)Walnuts – “They’re full of omega-3 fatty acids, which keep sex-hormone production high. Salmon, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sardines and beef also contain omega-3 fatty acids.”
  • 9)Vanilla – “This sweet bean stimulates nerves and makes sexual sensation feel even better.”
  • 10)Watermelon – “This juicy fruit contains phytonutrient citrulline – this leads to an increase in nitric oxide in your body, which causes blood vessels to relax and speed up circulation. What does all this mean? You’ll get more aroused faster.”

Proof that Running Prolongs Your SEX Life!

i8e4h3rj1cx7akkem7al

New research by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest married dating site, shows that if you jog as little as once a week, you have a 79% higher chance of being regularly sexually active after the age of 50, than someone who doesn’t exercise.

The research surveyed 1,000 members over the age of 50 who have sex more than once a fortnight, and 1,000 members over the age of 50 who have sex less than once a fortnight or no longer have sex.

Of the 1,000 members who have regular sex, 61% of them (613) jog once or twice a week, while 24% of them (236) jog three times or more a week. 15% of the remaining either regularly exercise in other ways such as yoga, swimming or Pilates (13%), or don’t regularly exercise (2%). Two in ten joggers have sex once a day and sixty five per cent strike up a conversation or ‘check out’ someone of the opposite sex when jogging.

Of the 1,000 members who have sex less than once a fortnight or no longer have sex, only 56 (5.6%) jog once or twice a week, while 12 (1.2%) jog three times or more a week. Less than 4% (37 people) do other regular exercise, such as yoga, swimming or Pilates. A staggering 895 of those who don’t jog or do exercise also don’t have regular sex!

“The health benefits of jogging are fantastic!” said Chris O’Connor, personal trainer “It’s great for diseases like osteoporosis and arthritis because it helps the joints and bones, as well as improving cardiovascular fitness, and of course weight loss. People don’t realize there are a lot of mental benefits to running. It’s the number one natural solution to depression and anxiety because your body releases endorphins when you jog – that’s why so many people get addicted. It makes sense that people who jog regularly have a better sex life than those who don’t. When you jog you have more energy, you’re more flexible, you have better breathing and stamina, your testosterone levels increase – of course you’re going to have sex more often!”

Claire Page, spokesperson for Illicit Encounters said “We get so many emails from customers who talk about the direct link between keeping fit and having a better sex life. Who wants to have sex when they’ve put on weight, feel out of shape or fat? Nobody! Our members are typically more successful, wealthier and in better shape than the average person their age. It doesn’t surprise me that so many of them are joggers, nor does it surprise me that the regular joggers have regular sex. If your sex life needs a spring clean, get your trainers on!”
