‘I always cheat on my wife on lads trips abroad – life’s too short not to’

With the sunshine finally here, many Brits are heading off on their summer getaways – but you might want to keep an eye on your man if he’s off on a lads’ trip. A new study carried by IllicitEncounters.com shows that the majority of men don’t consider themselves to be cheating if they have an affair abroad. Of the 1,800 members polled by the extramarital dating site, a whopping 77% of men don’t see an issue with indulging in an affair on foreign soil, believing it to actually be acceptable. When asked where in the world they’d had a secret fling, Ibiza came out on top with 44% of the vote. The ultimate lad’s holiday destination often regarded as party paradise is clearly a hotspot for pushing boundaries.

“Every year we book a week away – sun, good food, great company and if you’re lucky, a nice little one-night stand. “Obviously, my wife wouldn’t be too happy if she knew what we get up to, but because it’s just sex and a bit of fun, there’s really nothing for her to be worried about – I don’t love her any less, but life’s short so why not!” Another member of IllicitEncounters.com, Joshua, said: “For me there’s no doubt that cheating abroad is acceptable. Having done it before, it’s just physical, I’m not looking for an emotional connection, so as long as you can separate the two, there’s no harm done. “You have a bit too much to drink with the lads, get a little loose, return home and it’s all back to normal – no one needs to know.”

Sex and relationships expert, Jessica Leoni, commented: “With temperatures set to rise and the long-awaited arrival of summer finally upon us, you might want to think twice about agreeing to your partner’s lads’ holiday.” “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” according to the majority of men polled. In terms of where men tend to let loose, island destinations dominated the list, with Spain having two spots in the top three with men deciding it’s the best country to live la vida loca. It’s the mix of sunshine, copious amounts of alcohol and being far away from the wife that could potentially lead your partner astray – and you might be none the wiser when the boundaries of monogamy dissolve stepping off the plane. With lowered inhibitions, it’s all about having a good time, seizing the day and doing things they wouldn’t or couldn’t do back home.”
