This might explain why Ashley Madison’s user numbers have shot up in recent years.
A new Ernst & Young report commissioned by the site found that more women are using the site than ever. This was a particularly surprising development, given the post-hack revelation that most of the site’s female users were actually bots.
Because the man knew her husband and children, the affair became “too close for comfort,” she told me. I realized there was something big missing in my life and I wanted it.”So she took to the internet to find someone new.
“We had to end it.” But the experience awoke something in her. After briefly trying Match.com, she settled on Ashley Madison, “a site for people just like me.” She created an account in 2016 and soon met several “terrific” guys: “smart, funny, good writers, respectful.”She started dating one of them regularly and felt liberated by how easy it was.
She said some of them shied away from Ashley Madison after the hack, but after the dust settled, most returned.
“Despite all the risks and the negatives and the costs of cheating, people’s needs were so great that they were willing to risk it,” she said.“I think our information is out there pretty much everywhere,” said Amy*, a 50-year old Colorado resident who has dated outside of her marriage for years but began using Ashley Madison in early 2018.
But women are often socialized to undervalue their own sexual pleasure, and there is liberation in breaking taboos.
She interviewed dozens of Ashley Madison users for her 2017 book, , and found that the majority were “cheating to stay.” Like Lindsey, they weren’t looking for a new partner, just looking to outsource their sexual pleasure.
Walker kept in touch with her sources for the book.
In 2017, there were an average of 152,035 new Ashley Madison accounts registered per month in the United States, and the end of last year, the ratio of male to female active user accounts in the U. Toronto-based Ruby Corp., which owns Ashley Madison, has done a significant amount of work since the 2015 hack to make the website’s users feel more secure.
To start, the company fired its CEO and changed its name (Ruby used to be Avid Life Media).
Like Lindsey, many of them found the website to actually be the least risky form of cheating available.
