It looks like American cheaters have been caught with their proverbial pants down. When “extramarital encounter” website Ashley Madison was hacked last week, 10 gigabytes of usage data was released showing that family values aren’t necessarily as strong in the US as we might have hoped. It seems that married folks and other committed couples across the nation have been signing up in droves to troll for mutual cheating hook-ups. Men, women, gay, straight and otherwise curious people have been searching for matches with similarly minded adulterers. No emotional relationship is desired, just a casual quickie with someone other than their regular partner. Customers were assured confidentiality, but (oops!) this breach has outed many users. The hack is wreaking havoc in both small towns and big cities from coast to coast, and, indeed, around the world. It’s a sad state of affairs. It’s not that surprising, really, but it is interesting to see the breakdown of where significant sign-ups occurred. Here are the 11 most adulterous cities in America, at least according to their number of Ashley Madison accounts. Is your city on the list?
There is more than just brotherly love going on in Philly. Couples in the Liberty Bell city have been taking liberties with their commitments with some fleeting declarations of independence. The number of Ashley Madison sign-ups here is 86,018.
