Mobile Dating and Cheating: Study by Victoria Milan
Last Monday, we published an article based on Qriously polls about cheating & mobile devices. We found that a slight majority (61%) of people believe that texting an ex is NOT cheating. However, Victoria Milan, a controversial website for attached people interested in affairs, just released their own study that shows how critical of a role mobile plays in the cheating process – something their members are strictly seeking. They polled 11,000+ members, and found the following:
- 89% of people use smartphones or tablets to cheat on their spouse
- 64% will cheat via mobile devices while their spouse is in the same room
- Only 12% are very afraid of getting caught
The key findings are that almost 90% of cheaters are using their mobile devices to contact their lovers – yet only 12% are scared of getting caught. Three-quarters of people did admit they have a slight fear of being found out – and 13% have no fear at all that their significant others will catch them.
Another alarming insight they found was that 23% of cheaters chext while their partners are home, and of those people, 64% will text in the same room. Only 13% claim they do not communicate with their lovers while their partner is around.
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said mobile devices have changed how people cheat.
We know at Victoria Milan that often affairs remain a digital fantasy – a cheeky online flirt is enough to satisfy people. Moving this from the desktop computer to mobile devices means our members can sext from the office, the car, or as we’ve revealed – from the same room as their partner, and still keep their affair a secret.”
