It seems that Middle-Aged British women are doing more than brewing tea and crocheting doilies these days.

IllicitEncounters.com, which bills itself as the UK’s leading dating website for married people, has seen a 30% year-over-year increase in the number of 40+ women signing up to the site.

Furthermore, most of these women are looking to share their beds (at least temporarily) with younger men.

The cheating site surveyed a sample of more than 500 married women over the age of 40 who signed up for their service.  Findings revealed as many as 25% had an affair with someone 15 to 20 years younger than themselves, 37% have had an affair with someone 10 to 15 years younger, and 16% have had an affair with someone 5 to 10 years younger.

The same survey reports that 86% of the respondents said they wanted to cheat because their marital sex life had dwindled.

If you’re thinking about having a fling with a man who’s 20 years your junior, here are some benefits you can look forward to:

  • He has the energy to keep up with you both inside and outside the bedroom.
  • He can introduce you to pop culture. (“The Chain Smokers” is a band as well as a bad habit.)
  • You can stay on the down-low because he’s not likely to know your friends. (Unless, one of them happens to be his mother.)

Please note, when you cross the generation gap, you may need a translator.  If he says he wants to “put the kettle on,” he may not want to boil water. According to the Urban Dictionary, it means “get ready for sex.
