A major survey of the religious affiliations and sex secrets of adulterers is released today by AshleyMadison.com - and if you think religious types never stray, prepare for a shock.
AshleyMadison.com is a website for people who want to have affairs, offering 'discreet encounters' for all. Their subtle tagline is 'Life is short. Have an affair.'
Male and female members of the site responded to questions providing a snapshot of their behaviours; the results? Respondents were more than three times as likely to be Anglican or Roman Catholic than atheist.
Dr Eric Anderson, one of the world’s leading sexologists (yes, really) and Chief Science Officer at this website said: "Atheists cheat at far lower than half the rates of their population. Catholic countries, by offering salvation via confession, inadvertently give more reason to have permissive sex."
"It’s no accident that threesomes are more common in the highly Catholic countries such as the Latin Americas compared to the UK, the US and Australia." he added.
