New Data Reveals Top Ten UK Towns Where People Cheat The Most

If you've ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of your area, now you can find out thanks to a new 'infidelity index'.

The data shows the UK areas where cheating is most prevalent. According to the stats, from Illicit, Stratford-upon-Avon has been crowned the cheating hotspot, with 1,047 residents sneaking off for extramarital activity. Maybe people should try the Anne Summers 30 Day Sex Position Trial with their partner, just throwing the idea out there. Is it a coincidence that Doncaster doesn't appear in the list as they are apparently having the best sex?

Furthermore, wealthy areas such as Wilmslow and Beaconsfield have also ranked highly in the index, with 901 and 403 cheats respectively. Louise Van Der Velde - international sex expert who claims to have had at least 80 affairs with married men - has offered her thoughts on the index.

"Sex in the suburbs has never been more popular. We have a whole generation of unhappy couples stuck together because property prices have made it impossible for them to move on and start new lives," she said.

"They are staying in unhappy marriages and getting their kicks elsewhere. I moved to Harrogate a few years ago and it is typical of the posh commuter towns where cheating is absolutely rife."

Meanwhile, IllicitEncounters spokesman Christian Grant said: "We are increasingly popular in commuter towns like Stratford-upon-Avon, Harrogate, Wilmslow and Beaconsfield. Cheating in suburbia has never been more popular."

Guess that's what happens when there's nothing else to do. On the other side of the coin, Wigan in Greater Manchester turned out to be the most "faithful" town in the UK, with just 0.14 percent of residents found to be unfaithful.

For the top ten cheating areas, check out the list below:

1. Stratford-upon-Avon 1,047 (3.69 percent of population)

2. Wilmslow 901 (3.6 percent of population)

3. Beaconsfield 408 (3.4 percent of population)

4. Irvine 1,782 (2.51 percentof population)

5. Windsor 2,915 (2.08 percent of population)

6. Royal Tunbridge Wells 1,151 (2.06 percent of population)

7. Beeston 925 (2.06 percent of population)

8. Pontypridd 550 (2.06 percent of population)

9. Taunton 1,193 (1.97 percent of population)

So it looks like the affluent areas of the country are dark horses when it comes to naughty shagging.

Perhaps it's all down to boredom - all the money but none of the entertainment, the only extra curricular activities are messing about behind the partner's back. Forget sex in the city - in the UK it's all about sex in the suburbs.
