Female healthcare professionals represent the highest proportion of women members on a dating website for married people looking for affairs.
That’s according to www.illicitencounters.com that reveals that out of 314,000 members, a total of 4% cite their profession as ‘Healthcare & Medical’, which is almost 13,000 members.
Although there is a fine balance between the number of men and women on the site, there are significantly more female healthcare professionals than there are males.
The healthcare sector ranks as the ninth most-cited profession for men, yet is the top profession for female members, accounting for 10.4% of all female profiles.
Spokesperson for the website, Sara Hartley said: ‘We all know how stressful the healthcare sector can be, so it’s no surprise that these women are seeking something to relieve the tension caused by their day jobs. For many, an affair is the ultimate escape from the stress and strain of day-to-day life.’
Illicitencounters.com has been running since 2004, but has seen it’s largest jump in membership over the past 12 months, where the number of profiles has risen from 180,000 to 310,000.
