People have affairs. We’ve come to accept that the urge to cheat is in most of us, and while many like to think they’ll never do it, we aren’t so sure. When a sexy person comes your way it is hard to resist, and it seems that pretty much everyone struggles with that desire to explore sex with someone new.
Cheating means a lot of things to different people. Some see any relationship with someone of the opposite sex, even a hug, as cheating. Some might think that being a cheat excludes sex, as emotions are the important part. Others have absolutely no idea what constitutes cheating in their minds, but they’ll know when you do it!
People have been suggesting that people in certain towns in England are more likely to cheat than others… but is it true? Are the people in Ashford more likely to start an affair than those in Wellington? Are those in Torquay going to cheat more than the people of Harrogate? We take a look at the statistics here on the Escort England blog.
Cheating is common
Some people might not like to think it, but cheating is actually a pretty common thing to do. Websites like Ashley Madison highlighted the fact that there are plenty of people out there just looking for ways to start an affair and meet a sexy person to fuck.
However, when Ashley Madison was attacked, people all came forward saying how disgusting that kind of website was, and that they couldn’t believe it existed. The thing is, Ashley Madison is perhaps the most prominent and well known website for affairs… and it certainly isn’t the only one!
There are plenty of websites giving you the chance to arrange affairs or to meet up with some sexy companions. Escort England gives you the chance to meet local escorts and get to know them a little better. Websites like Illicit Encounters give married people the chance to talk to others like them. Technically, social media also lets you meet up with other horny people, if you find them and message them.
While Ashley Madison has the monopoly on the world of affairs, the Illicit Encounters website says that they have “the UK’s largest and longest running dating site for married people”, boasting over a million “genuine UK users”.
The website has really gained attention, following the Ashley Madison scandal, and for those looking to cheat and stay discreet, they tell you that they “never store your real name or card details”. They don’t need to know these details because “membership is totally free”, unlike Ashley Madison.
They suggest that people use the website for a number of reasons, such as a “bit of flirtatious chat” as well as “full-blown affairs”, but considering they have a little disclaimer on their website explaining that “not everyone is suited to having an affair” and that “some can be very damaging”, we’re pretty sure we know what most people will use the website for.
Cheating around the UK
The internet has made it so much easier for people to have an affair, as we now have websites to help us do it. There are even websites with guides to help you, should you get caught cheating, or even guides to make sure no-one ever finds out about your affair.
For Illicit Encounters, they noticed that there were some places around the UK that seemed to be home to more cheats than others.
In order to figure out which towns around the UK were more likely to cheat, they compiled a “cheating map”, highlighting the towns around the UK, as well as the London Boroughs, who were more likely to start having an affair.
When you look at the towns around the UK most likely to start an affair, you might be surprised. Right at the top, with around 2119 affairs, is the town of High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire. It has a huge lead on the number 2 cheat town, which is Guildford. Guildford has roughly 1250 affairs taking place, which is considerably less than those in the top spot.
As they have used the percentage of those in the towns cheating to work out the rankings, the town of Aldershot comes next, with 729 affairs accounting for 2.03% of the population. Next is Beeston, with 2% of the people having a whopping 939 affairs. Finishing up the top ten we have the town of Cumbernauld, with 1.91% of the population having 841 affairs.
These numbers might seem pretty high, but they really aren’t… not when you take a look at London. The city and capital of London seems to be a hive of activity for those willing to cheat, and the website decided to break down the boroughs to tell us who were the most likely to enjoy a little infidelity.
The worst London Borough is the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. A whopping 5.76% of the population are having an affair. In fact, the whole of the top five of the London Boroughs have over 5% of the population cheating. Pretty surprising!
