There seems to be a general increase in unfaithfulness amongst French women.
Polling organisation Ifop, in conjunction with the launch of Daylove.com, a website for people who want to engage in adultery, conducted a survey into women and spousal cheating.
One third of women who have never been married admit to having had sexual intercourse with someone other than their partner – a steady increase from 10 per cent in 1970 and 24 per cent in 2001.
The primary motivator of infidelity is physical attraction – and 62 per cent of women admit this is a “determining” factor; over half of women said having feelings for the other person is the most important factor.
The internet is also being increasingly used to facilitate encounters of unfaithfulness: Forty-two per cent of French women who indicated that they might cheat, said they would use a website.
But it's not just the French.
According to data from Durex, these are the 10 most adulterous countries in the world.
Thailand is coming right on top (pardon the pun) with 56 per cent of married couples in the study admitting to infidelity.
Denmark: so what's going on there, with almost half of all Danes playing away?
Italy, unsurprisingly for the Land of Love, ranked almost as high of Denmark, with 45 per cent of its couples admitting to infidelity.
But perhaps more surprising were the Germans ranking exactly the same as Italy on the cheating stakes.
France recorded its fair share of liaisons dangereuses: 43 per cent of couples.
Lower, but still rather unfortunate, were the rates of adultery among us Brits - 36 per cent.
