Football widows look for illicit sex
An extra marital dating site claims it has experienced a 77% increase in women looking for sex during Euro 2012.
IllicitEncounters.com reckons that the spike is down to neglected football widows looking for some on-the-side action.
The website, which has more than 680,000 members, says it noticed a surge in female activity as soon as the tournament began.
And on Tuesday night, when England were playing Ukraine for a place in the quarter-finals, it reported an 82% increase in interest from women.
Similar spikes were noted during England's matches against France and against Sweden.
And female activity on the website has increased over the three games - just as television audiences have climbed.
Illicit Encounters spokeswoman Rosie Freeman-Jones said: "Figures show that the match between England and Sweden had a larger audience than any match broadcast during Euro 2008.
"People's interest in football is obviously on the rise, but so is the number of women who feel put out by their husband's obsession with the game."
Site activity is expected to rise further as the tournament continues culminating in an expected boom during the quarter finals on 24 June.
"Some new females have actually been surprisingly explicit about what lead them to join the site," added Ms Freeman-Jones.
"Perhaps these figures will serve as a wake-up call to British men - if you don't pay attention to these ladies, they'll go and find someone who will. Preferably someone who's into salsa dancing or gardening."
what do you think?
"they'll go and find someone who will. Preferably someone who's into salsa dancing or gardening.".......otherwise known as hom....I wont give orange the satisfaction
I think I need to sign up to this "Illicit Encounters" site. Told you it's a good thing I don't like football ;)
I thought salsa was something you had with tortilla chips and fajitas,didn't know it could dance although it does slide of my tortilla chips onto my lap sometimes
if these women cant give their husbands 90 minutes in a day to themselves then perhaps they deserve the stds they will likely end up carrying...
im speculating they saved up to go abroad with their mates and yet dont put anything aside for the missus, but then i have a biased view
Im not watching the football, and have nothing better to do at the moment so ladies leave a message after the beep...........lol
Hahaa! Made me laugh!
hey julie are you saying youre a football widow????/lol
No, Gavin.......in Wales we prefer rugby! Grandson plays for under12 s, get to go on cracking tours! I'm not welsh, but been here 32 yrs......Footballers are to far up their own ar..ses! Lol!
If ther are after a salsa dancer or a gardner surely they are using the wrong web site?
I dated a girl that could dance a mean Salsa and enjoyed gardening.
jokes been done pal
And divorce rates....
...IM NOT A FAN OF FOOTBALL..........NOW WHAT DO I SAY ???????????
Oh for heavens sake! What is wrong with these women!
Haha, soccer. What a joke. Maybe if the 'men' watched a real sport, like Rugby League, their women would be as happy as mine. Hom... Like the other guy said...
Rugby? haha thats for people who can't play football pal
rugby is so much better than football. load of overpaid divers on a pitch running after a ball? how is that a sport. atleast with rugby its more physical.
Football is BY FAR better. You just have to have a thick head to play rugby, any idiot can play it. Just a bunch of overweight morons chasing an egg. There is a reason they can only pass the ball sideways, because they physically can't throw it forward, haven't got the brain power too. At least in football there is skill
This site is just advertising themselves for more customers. If a woman wants to have an affair she will have it. She doesn't have to wait for football time.. when she wants it, she'll get it.
