What is the Infidelity Index?


The Infidelity Index uses data from over one million postcodes to show how many people are having affairs in each area.


The results are based solely on the data from IllicitEncounters.com and are therefore only a reflection. As the overall data is only 3% of the total adult population having relationships... well, you can do the maths.


The Major Towns Index shows the towns in order of most illicit. The percentages shown represent our data against that of the population of that town therefore giving it an accurate ranking against other towns. Royal Tunbridge Wells ranks highest, closely followed by Guildford and then Wrexham/Wrecsam.


The London Borough Index shows the boroughs in order of most illicit. The percentages shown represent our data against that of the population of that borough therefore giving it an accurate ranking against other boroughs. Islington ranks highest, closely followed by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and Brent.


For the first time ever, there is a City Index. Gloucester is the most adulterous city in the UK, with Peterborough and Bath rounding off the top 3.


When searching for some of the cities, you will see some of our genuine case studies alongside. Whilst the users are real, and in many cases available for press comment, their names have been changed to protect their identities.
