With the divorce rate as high as it is I guess I don’t understand why this statistic shocked me as much as it did. But it did. 64% of a survey of 11,050 cheating members in a relationship say that they cheat in the same room that their significant other is in! What floored me even more is that only 12% are scared of getting caught! IS that you really just don’t care or that your significant other just never checks up on you? If that is the case I wonder if they are cheating too! That would be a good infographic I suppose. It apps like SnapChat that allege that everything you do is private I guess it adds to already growing conformability of cheating on your significant other. The results below are just horrifying and perhaps growing trend that has no intention of slowing down. This data is actually kind of ironic because I was listening to the radio going home the other day and a very popular 90’s song came on called OPP by rap group Naughty by Nature. Very cool song with a great groove! I knew what it was about but never actually listened to the lyrics until now. Wow!
Check out the rest of the data below and prepare yourself for some disturbing facts.
- 89% of people use smartphones or tablets to cheat on their spouse
- 64% will cheat via mobile devices while their spouse is in the same room
- Only 12% are very afraid of getting caught
24 September 2014_After surveying 11,050 of its cheating members, Victoria Milan – a dating website for attached and married people looking to cheat – was able to reveal shocking insights into the modern world of infidelity and the fact cheaters are getting more bold, taking more risks – and they aren’t worried about getting caught.
Almost 90% of cheaters are using their mobile devices to contact their lovers – yet only 12% are scared of getting caught. Three-quarters of people did admit they have a slight fear of being found out – and 13% aren’t afraid at all that their digital dalliances might come to light.
Particularly cheeky are the cheaters who are sexting while their partners are home (23%), or even in the same room (64%). Only 13% claim they do not communicate with their lovers while their partner is around.
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said mobile devices have brought the cheating world to a whole new level.
“We know at Victoria Milan that often affairs remain a digital fantasy – a cheeky online flirt is enough to satisfy people. Moving this from the desktop computer to mobile devices means our members can sext from the office, the car, or as we’ve revealed – from the same room as their partner, and still keep their affair a secret,” Mr Vedal said.
