Where are America's least faithful cities?

Extra-marital affairs are more common in some cities than others, according to an annual report.

By Kristin Wong Feb 13, 2013 10:25PM

For the second year in a row, Washington D.C. has been named the country's most infidelity-prone city.

AshleyMadison.com is a dating website for married people looking to cheat. "You only live once," is their motto, followed by, "have an affair." As you can imagine, the site is no stranger to criticism, and they've released another controversial report: their annual list of "Americas Least Faithful Cities." Based on user data collected on their site, they found that our nation's capital is indeed our country's least faithful city.

Washington D.C. had the highest number of AshleyMadison members per capita last year—with 34,157 new users. Apparently, Texans also have cheating on their minds. Austin and Houston came in second and third on the list.

"With enormous public attention paid to political cheating scandals this year, including the Gen. Petraeus affair, there was no doubt that Washington residents would be influenced," founder Noel Biderman said in a press release. "Living in D.C., it's crucial to keep up appearances and therefore adultery has become a way of life for many of the city's most powerful residents."

Biderman also found that the day after Valentine's Day is his site's busiest day of the year. In 2012, they had a 439 percent increase in membership sign-ups.

  Top 10 Least Faithful Cities, according to AshleyMadison.com:
  1. Washington, D.C.

  4. Miami 
  5. Oklahoma City, Okla.
  6. Richmond, Va.
  7. Boston

Interestingly for the most part the most right wing parts of the country.  Interestingly the values there are: immorality.  Who would have guessed?  Those people rape the planet, other countries, and their spouses.  So much for "American Values."  Can't get stoned, or an abortion, or try to find a way into this God forsaken place, but these pigs f*** everybody and anybody they please.

DC?  not surprising at all. when I used to go there on business I'd say the average female was at best a 4.5 to maybe a 6.5 on any given evening.  I was surprised they were married at all the way the drank and cusses all night in the bars.  but they were for the most part fairly active and skilled in a motel room.

Doesn't surprise me.  Its full of alot of powerful people and isnt' power really sexually attractive to people. Besides, maybe alot of people bed down for advancement.  Maybe some of our legislators excel in the sack but unfortunatley not in Congress, lol.
