  • 18% of married people have cheated at the office Christmas party, a new survey has revealed
  • 45% admitted to kissing a colleague, while 77% flirted with one
  • 6% went all the way, having sex with their colleague, while 4% did it with their boss
  • 18% put their job on the line, telling their boss what they really thought of them
  • The results come from an annual survey of over 1,000 people on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

Horrible karaoke, second hand embarrassment, and an illicit relationship with a colleague – the office Christmas party has it all.

An annual survey of over 1,000 people on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, found that 18% of those surveyed cheated with a colleague at the office Christmas party.

To be specific, 45% admitted to kissing a colleague, 66% seductively danced with one, while a whopping 77% flirted with one. 6% even admitted to going all the way and had sex with a colleague, while 4% had sex with their boss.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:

“The combination of good drinks and good vibes creates a scenario that’s ripe for cheating; whether that manifests itself as something as innocent as a bit of flirting or a full-blown affair is another story.

“Maybe you’ve always found your colleague attractive, and a little bit of alcohol is all that was needed for you to cross the line.

“Unfortunately, sleeping with a colleague can be more damaging in the long run than cheating with a stranger on a night out, or even with someone you meet online.

“Once the hangover disappears, the reality of your actions will sink in, and you’ll have to return to work in the coming days and weeks and confront your colleague one way or another – you’ll never be able to look them in the eye the same way again, that’s for sure.”

And the ramifications could be even worse for some, as 18% admitted to telling their boss exactly what they thought of them at the office Christmas party, with a further 14% admitting to having a shared a secret that they shouldn’t have.

“This almost always ends badly,” said Grant.

“At best, your boss will dismiss – or forget – your drunken ramblings. At worst, you’ll be in for a stern talking to the next day; you have absolutely nothing to gain.

“While the Christmas party is intended to be fun, it’s important to maintain a semblance of professionalism if you can.”

One In Ten Married People Have Had An Affair With Their Boss, According to a Study​

  • 10% of married people have had a long-term affair (3 months or more) with their boss
  • 35% admitted to cheating (e.g. one-night stand, ‘sexting’ and kissing)
  • 9% have had sex with their boss at their place of work.
  • 3% would even consider leaving their spouse for their boss
  • The profession in which employee/employer relationships are most prevalent is doctors
  • The results come from a survey of over 900 people on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

More and more people are electing to have an affair with their boss, a new survey has revealed.

In a survey of over 900 members on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, as many as 10% of respondents admitted to having had an long-term affair (3 months or more) with their boss.

An even greater number (35%) admitted to cheating with their boss in the same time period. This includes a one-night stand, kiss, ‘sexting’ and oral sex.

Astonishingly, 3% said that they would consider leaving their current partner for their boss, having fallen head over heels for them, with 9% admitting to having had sex with their boss at their place of work.

The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:

“It’s been proven that the UK’s workforce is working harder than ever before, spending more and more time at the office and working overtime.

“Unfortunately, that also means we’re more stressed, less happy and more prone to an affair as result. With more time spent at work, and therefore less at home, we see our colleagues and employers more than we do our own family.

“That means we’re more likely to forge positive relationships with those we work with, or for, and hence we choose to ‘de-stress’ by taking those relationships to the next level, even if we probably shouldn’t.”

In a recent, separate study commissioned by IllicitEncounters.com, it was revealed that teachers, lawyers and pilots were the most adulterous professions when it came to two colleagues having an affair; when it comes to affairs with bosses, it’s a fairly similar outlook, with doctors topping the leaderboard with 17%, followed closely by teachers (15%) and lawyers (13%).

“Needless to say, the more time you spend working with someone, the more likely you are to form a strong bond with them. It should come as no surprise then that doctors, teachers and lawyers are evidently rife with employer-employee relationships, given the time that those respective professions spend at work.”

Professions with the most Employer/Employee Affairs

  1. Other (20%)
  2. Doctors (17%)
  3. Teachers (15%)
  4. Lawyers (13%)
  5. Pilots/Airline Staff (11%)
  6. Financial Jobs (bankers, mortgage brokers, financial advisers) (10%)
  7. Journalists (8%)
  8. Marketeers and Advertisers (6%)

“I’ll have another round please!” Women Declare Bartenders as the UK’s Sexiest Workers

55404719bd18a

Bartenders, throw your towel cloths in the air and wave them like you just don’t care – you’ve just been voted the UK’s sexiest workers! The news comes from a survey by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading and longest running dating site for married people.

Of the 2000 women who were surveyed, 15% declared their infatuation for Britain’s bartenders. Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters, Christian Grant, said: “Bartenders are hot. Bars, pubs and clubs are always conscious of their employees’ appearance, so it’s no surprise to find that these venues are the perfect melting pot of buff men.”

Lily, a 30-year-old actress from London, said: “A muscular guy in a tight shirt serving me alcohol…sounds like I’ve died and gone to heaven!”

Grant adds: “It can get a little too awkward for bartenders sometimes. When you’ve got guys and gals vying for your attention left right and center, it can make the already difficult task of serving drinks to a packed venue a little unbearable.

It’s particularly bad around the Christmas period. Everybody is a little too jolly, with bartenders having to carry out the odd bloke or two who’ve overestimated their ability to hold their drink, having that one Jägerbomb too many.”

Not far behind bartenders on IllicitEncounters’ survey were gardeners, closely followed by fire officers.

The full results are available below:

Sexiest Profession Percentage
Bartender 15%
Gardener 13%
Fire Officer 12%
Lifeguard 11%
Musician 10%
Other 10%
Artist 9%
Teacher 7%
Chef 6%
Doctor 4%
Entrepreneur 3%

It’s not all fun and games, however, as the unsexiest professions were also revealed.

If you’re a truck or bus driver, I’m afraid you’ve received the unwanted accolade of least sexy profession in the UK.

“What is less sexy than driving a bus or a truck? Nothing, apparently,” says Grant. “We’re all appreciative of the work that these people do, but that doesn’t translate well when it comes to how hot we perceive them to be.”

Among the truck and bus drivers were waste collectors, traffic wardens, and funeral directors.

The full results are available below:

Unsexiest Profession Percentage
Truck/Bus Driver 16%
Waste Collector 15%
Traffic Warden 13%
Funeral Director 11%
Other 11%
Sewage Worker 10%
Fast Food Worker 8%
Pizza Delivery Driver 6%
Butcher 5%
Janitor 3%
Politician 2%

Uh-oh…Over HALF of Workers Admit to Hooking Up at the Christmas Party!

iStock_000046225358_Large (1)

2015 is ending with a bang – in some cases, literally so. IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, can reveal that over half of workers have hooked up in some form or another with a co-worker at the work Christmas party.

Of the 2000 workers that responded to the survey, 55% admitted to having engaged in some sort of illicit activity with a co-worker. Of that 55%, 30% said that they’d drunkenly kissed a co-worker, 15% went home with a co-worker, while the remaining 10% admitted to going the distance and sleeping with a co-worker.

IllicitEncounters’ spokesperson, Christian Grant, explained: “Woops. A Christmas Party is the perfect breeding ground for office shenanigans. You work with these people day in, day out, so, naturally, a bond is established – you like them, even on a basic level. Add in a mix of alcohol and good music, and you’ve got a relaxed atmosphere, ripe for inebriated workers to subvert their inhibitions, let loose, and attempt to take their relationship with their co-worker to something more than it should be.”

Although not every worker found themselves pairing up with a colleague, they found other ways to ensure that they woke up the following morning with feelings of regret. 10% admitted to stripping off in some capacity, with a further 13% confessing a secret that they wish they hadn’t. One thing’s for certain, plenty were left a little worse for wear, with 20% admitting to pulling a sickie the following morning to nurse a hangover.

To make matters worse, the survey found that nearly 30% of workers used the opportunity to confront their boss and give them a piece of their mind, or even try to charm their way to a promotion or pay rise.

“There are going to be quite a few awkward conversations in a number of offices over the next month,” says Grant. “Under certain circumstances, all semblance of reality and order is lost, and workers often think that a jovial atmosphere allows them to take a few digs at their boss, and say things that they normally wouldn’t even dream of saying. The result? They take it too far, forgetting that there are consequences to their actions.”

“If there’s something that needs to be said to your boss, save it for a professional occasion – they will most definitely dismiss your drunken ramblings.”

Objection Overruled – Lawyers Found to be the Most Likely Profession to Cheat!

Jerene-May-2015-judge-hammer-shutterstock-700x420

Sorry lawyers, but the jury finds you guilty. Yes, the legal eagles have been revealed to be the most likely profession to have an affair. That’s according to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, whose data shows that 5% of their members (over 51,000) work in the legal sector.

Why lawyers? Theo, who works in a legal firm in London, explains “There isn’t a man or woman alive who doesn’t want to let their hair down from time to time, even if that means being a little naughty in the process.”

“Working long hours in a demanding profession that constantly requires you to act perfectly…there’s just a lot of stress involved, and having an affair is the perfect outlet to relieve some of that angst and have some fun.”

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters, Socrates Pyliotis, adds “Lawyers might hold up values of honesty and integrity in the workplace, but outside of that? Not so much. Lawyers are great with people, that’s part of their job, so it’s not too hard to envisage them charming their way to an illicit encounter.”

“Add in the adrenaline-fuelled rush of a legal battle in the courtroom, and the constant travelling that lawyers make to meet different clients, and you have the perfect opportunity for lawyers to act on their instincts.”

“Who knows, with National Love Your Lawyer Day on 6th November, some people might take it a little too literally!”

IllicitEncounters’ data also detailed the other professions that are most likely to cheat. Those in middle-level management came in second place with 4%, closely followed by accountants and those working in finance, with 2.2% and 1.7% respectively.

“There’s a recurring theme here,” explains Pyliotis. “Those in hardworking, big city jobs all share some common DNA – affairs seem to be the desired antidote to their stress!”
