Many of those actively seeking an affair tend to be go-getters, which is reflected in their choice of car and their chosen profession. They are often conspicuous consumers
(PRWeb UK) April 30, 2009
Drivers of expensive cars are more likely to have an affair. That's the finding of http://www.illicitencounters.com - the UK's largest extra-marital dating site.
From a recent survey amongst the site's 300,000 strong membership, it was apparent that drivers of top-end vehicles were more likely to engage in an affair than others.
Sara Hartley, spokesperson for the site, comments; "Many of those actively seeking an affair tend to be go-getters, which is reflected in their choice of car and their chosen profession. They are often conspicuous consumers"
Of the respondents, 20.9% drove a high-ranking executive car, including 16 Bentleys, 31 Porsches, 5 Aston Martins and 135 BMW's. Colours were typically dark, with black (24.3%) silver (21.4%) and blue (18.9%) accounting for the vast majority of cars.
"A flash car is the ultimate pulling accessory, as well as a status symbol. There's also a subtle sexual message that comes from owning one. The driver is instantly more attractive."
Although their own car was important to them, members had little interest in what car their lover drove, with only 19.4% of members admitting to be concerned.
