Illicit Encounters offers an emotional release in various ways. Some of our members simply chose to talk to like-minded members, and are not interested in pursuing a romantic relationship. Some members decide to meet up with each other - enjoy recreational activities with someone new. There are then the members that use IE to conduct full-blown affairs. There are different levels of immersion.

As RELATE, the UK's main marriage counselling body, cancels hundreds of appointments across London, extra-marital dating site IllicitEncounters.com prepares for an influx of new members. The site, which has around 7% of its 330,000 members in the capital city, has taken on extra staff to cope with the expected surge in membership.
IllicitEncounters receives around 345 new members a day, but expects this figure to rise over the coming weeks when stressed couples buckle under the weight of bottled-up feelings.
"Husbands and wives need an outlet," says Sara Hartley, site representative. "If the place where they usually let off steam is for some reason taken away from them, they may chose a different route. Here at IllicitEncounters, we think of ourselves as an alternative to therapy. Many of our members think of us that way too."

Summer is a busy time for the site. Last year, IE saw its membership increase by 15% between May and August.
Illicit Encounters is the UK's longest running extra-marital dating site. It was started in 2003, beginning as a small agency with only a handful of members, but since its creation, has grown at a phenomenal rate. We now have over 330,000 members in the UK.
The aim of the site is to create a safe and nonjudgmental environment, where married men and women can meet each other. Illicit Encounters is a profile-based website, where each member has a personalised space stating who they are, what they're looking for and their interests. Users can talk freely on our new-improved chat system, or send each other messages through our internal mailing system.
The average Illicit Encounters member is a professional, often working in management or as an executive, and between the ages of 36 and 40. We have the most balanced ratio of men to women online than any other dating site.
