BMW owners may have to up their driving game, with research showing they’ve been overtaken as the “most adulterous drivers”.
According to a report by married dating site IllicitEncounters.com, Audi drivers have crashed into top spot of those most likely to commit adultery.
As the whole country and not just Boris Johnson is now painfully aware, an appeal court ruled yesterday that the public has a right to know about a child the mayor allegedly fathered following an extra-marital affair.
The child’s mother is Helen Macintyre, who has been involved in a privacy battle with the Daily Mail since the paper revealed the mayor’s supposed paternity of her daughter in 2010. Unfortunately, Macintyre’s case was somewhat undermined by her own efforts — clue; if you want to keep a really big secret, don’t blab about it to magazine publishers or take part in Tatler photoshoots. It’s been possibly one of the worst-kept secrets in history, readers of Sonia Purnell’s biography of the mayor (which we read prior to the 2012 mayoral elections) will have come across it and the appeal court noted that it’s been widely published online.

My wife and I went to see the revival of Peter Nichols’ Passion Play in the West End this week. First produced in 1981, it was a drama about adultery and it got me thinking – whatever happened to adultery anyway?
At the time Nichols was writing, the psychological and practical complications of having sex with someone else outside the nest of complacency and anxiety that the nuptial home was always represented as, was very much part of the zeitgeist. Whether you were Harold Pinter, Philip Roth, John Updike, Josephine Hart or Fay Weldon, you were writing about the possibilities and hazards of extramarital sex.
Nowadays, although adultery still happens regularly enough on television, and in drama and literature, it is rarely the central trope of a single piece of artistic endeavour. And this makes me wonder if people are just “over” adultery in their real – as opposed to cultural – lives.
I may be unusual, or not as privy to the inner lives of my friends as I think I am, but as far as I can detect, pretty much no one I know has committed casual adultery for the last 30 years – myself included. There are exceptions – usually taking place when a marriage is coming to an end anyway – but the idea of taking a lover for purely recreational purposes seems less common than it once was.

It’s a commonly held belief in 2013 Britain that we live in a sexually enlightened (not sure what that actually means, but we’ll go with it) age. Gay marriage is finally on the horizon. We’re all on the pill, or similar (right?). Full frontal nudity on TV and semi-pornographic sex scenes are basically expected from most HBO shows.
It’s okay to talk about sex now. Cosmopolitan have been giving us girls utterly implausible sex tips for fucking ages. It’s totally fine to have had loads of sexual partners. If you’ve shagged fewer than three people by the age of 20 you’re basically a virgin. Sex toys and various pleasure giving lubes and gels are sold in pretty, colourful packaging alongside aspirin. It’s all cool.
Except one thing. In 21st Century England we still have an enormous problem with the idea that anything other than monogamy in a relationship is wrong. Everyone is a goddamn hypocrite.
Msny of you will remember the film “The Go Between”, where a young boy acted as a secret means of communication between lovers.
It’s a fact of life that many affairs are exposed by suspicious spouses checking out their other halfs mobile phone – contacts and texts.
As our site name suggests, we take adultery seriously, and in that context we are developing a Go Between service to pass messages, meet up details etc between lovers.
The basic framework would be that we would supply you with a mobile number which would be answered by somebody of the “appropriate” sex, you would leave the message for your lover which would then be personally delivered to your lover, again by somebody of the appropriate sex.
In the event spouses do any checking up, they find themselves talking to their husbands “squash partner”, or their wifes “beautician” etc, so if any checking up goes on, your position is safe.
Rather than launch something that doesn’t exactly meet you needs, we need feedback from YOU, our readers so we can tailor our service accordingly, and crucially, how much you would be willing to pay for such a peace of mind service, and would you prefer £ per month or per use.

Never have marriage vows been under so much strain
Where’s your mobile phone? On the kichen table? Still in the pocket of the jacket you just took off to mow the lawn? And what about your computer — did you remember to log off after paying that bill?
Perhaps you’re thinking: I’m at home — there’s nothing to worry about. But how would you feel if, at this very moment, your loving husband or wife was trawling through your private texts and messages?
Astonishingly, 44 per cent of spouses do this, according to a major research study, conducted by the Internet Research Institute at Oxford University.
Not only that, but there’s a 65 per cent chance that if a husband’s messages are being read by his wife, he’s also reading hers. However you interpret these figures — and there may be some innocent explanations — there are clearly an awful lot of husbands and wives who are prepared to spy on each other. And what they hope — and dread — to find, of course, is evidence of an affair.
Sexual fidelity is one of the most important symbols of commitment in a relationship. Yet it is increasingly under attack from new pressures, and few of us understand why people have affairs or how best to recover from them.
A married surgeon began an affair with a patient almost half his age after he waived his private medical fees for treatment to her injured knee, a medical tribunal heard today.
Father-of-three Dr Jonathan Beacon bombarded the woman with sexually charged texts, romped with her inside his car, took her on a string of lunch dates and spent the night with her in a series of hotels, it was claimed.
During one meeting, consultant orthopaedic surgeon Beacon, 66, told his 39-year old mistress he wanted to have sex with her even though she was wearing a plaster cast on her leg, it was alleged.
The married mother-of-one, who in the midst of a divorce, was said to have found him ‘charismatic’ and ‘enjoyed the attention’.
Rise of the online Anna Kareninas: Turned On is the story of a married woman’s addiction to virtual sex that crosses the line into real-life adultery
The book’s title, Turned On, does not just refer, rather explicitly, to the fact that its pages chart a real and intimate first-person account of an adulterous affair. It has a double meaning.
A married woman pseudonymously writing as Lucy Dent enters into a “harmless flirtation” with a man who calls himself “paranoidandroid” on the internet that then develops into infidelity, obsession and beyond. What gives the book its other meaning and distinguishes its story of marital disappointment, sexual desire and betrayal from the classic literary trajectory of middle-class infidelity, is that this particular affair takes place virtually.
‘My wife lets me have affairs’: One ‘happily’ married man defends unusual arrangement (which sees him juggling TEN other women)
What would you do if you couldn’t keep up with your partner’s sex drive? One happily married man tells Helen Croydon why his wife lets him use a marital affair dating site.
Grahame Tamsett, 67, and his wife Sandra, 58, enjoy walking, gardening at their home near Maidstone in Kent, holidays in the sun and days out with their seven grand children. It sounds like the idyllic life of many middle-aged couples.
Grahame is retired but Sandra still works part time in their family business of care homes. They have been together for twenty-five years and married for ten. Both have two children from previous marriages.
And they have one modern marital agreement that most couples would never accept: Grahame uses adult dating websites for flings and affairs, with the full blessing of his wife.
