Extra marital dating sites
I read all the outraged comments from onlookers who are astonished that 33 million people would sign up to an extra-marital dating site and cheat on their partners.Around seven years ago, I discovered Illicit Encounters after I read about it in a magazine.The pre-sex drinks and dinners were almost as good as the sex itself.For a while, I thought I could carry on being married to a nice but unexciting guy, and have my fun on the side.Hugh was closer to 50 than the 40 he had said he was, but it didn’t matter – he was handsome and as smart as he’d been online.We chatted over wine in a bar near London’s King’s Cross.He rarely complimented me and I constantly sought attention elsewhere, even if it was just an admiring look.
In fact, Canadian-owned competitor, Ashley Madison, counts over 9 million “anonymous” registered users that are seeking a bit of…well, you get my point.
I hit the first hurdle when both usernames Naughty Boy88 and Naughty Boy1988 are taken.
I’m also dismayed to find that Naughty Boy69 is also unavailable. Two hours later my inbox is still ringing hollow – not a single response.
While it has been assumed that the scandal would sound the site’s death knell, it has also generated a vast amount of free publicity – and led even those of us who would never dream of cheating, less still giving away our personal details to a website to do so, wondering what it would be like to enter an online den of marital cheaters.
Priming myself not to lie or deceive, I set up a profile.
