There are a lot more cheaters in this world than you might think. According to studies, some 40% of women will cheat on a partner at least once in their lives. But contrary to what people once thought, cheating isn't some part of their personality. In fact, an explosive new survey discovered that it's not the "who" that you should be looking out for, but the "what she does". Is your girl going to cheat on you? If she does any of these ten jobs, then it's highly likely...
A Very Revealing Survey
It seems like a lot of women have something to get off their chests. An incredible number of participants - over 5,000 - responded to a research survey trying to determine the hows and whys of women who cheat. It's the biggest study of its kind, and the results were something that no-one expected...
Life Over Work
The first surprising thing to come out of the study was just how much women cheated at work. Forget about the personal trainer or the cute guy at the bus stop: over 65% of everyone who responded said that they cheated with a colleague, and nearly all of them said that it happened more than once. Just goes to show that women are choosing to have fun over work.
There Are Consequences
But just because they did cheat at work, didn't mean they necessarily thought it was a good thing. Deep down, some morals did come into play, with 85% of the woman who did cheat with a fellow worker saying that they "wouldn't recommend it". Not only that, but the risk of getting caught seemed to increase if they did it at work.
Lawyers came in at number ten on the list of the professions most likely. Why? It's hard to say. Maybe it's all those late nights with boxes of Chinese take-out, poring over legal loopholes. But then again, that's hardly as exciting as it sounds. What's more likely is that lawyers are such smooth operators, they could talk their way into anyone's pants.
9. The Communication Industry
Next up was the communication industry - i.e., anyone who has to talk over the phone for a living. We can understand this one, honest. Half the time you've got some deep, rumbling voice whispering sweet nothings in your ear, getting you all hot and heavy. The other half the time is someone screaming abuse at you, and what better way to let off some steam than getting frisky in the supply cupboard?
Okay, now we're getting a little bit more obvious. But it's still surprising, just in another way. Why is this profession not higher up in the list? Is it actually so noble a job that people are really following the "no touching" rule? We're not saying that taking your clothes off and swinging around a pole for money means you're an instant floozy, but come on. If your clothes are already off, you may as well go for it, no?
As a matter of fact, female DJs are even more likely to cheat at work than strippers. Go figure. We suspect it's a combination of three things: music, which always gets you in the mood; easy access to Ecstasy, which will always do the trick; and the constant touring, which makes it oh so easy to never get caught.
JK Rowling aside, rule number one of being a painter, sculptor, writer, or actor is that you deep down have to be a terrible and amoral person. On the plus side, it makes your work all that more incisively brilliant. On the other hand, cheating just comes with the territory. Not only that, but nothing's more attractive than a tortured soul.
"Let's get physical," Kylie Minogue sang way back in the 90s, and it looks like a lot of women took her at face value. Being a sportsperson is like the perfect recipe for cheating. A sexy car crash of hot bodies, stamina, oh-look-I'm-already-sweaty, and always being out of the country, shacked up with some delicious Kenyan marathon runners. Who could blame them?
Businesswoman mean business, and by that we mean that they love it when it's business time. There's no business like getting down to business on a business trip, or even getting busy in a long-haul business class flight. Slowly stripping off that businesswear to reveal the business socks underneath. Maybe we should mind our own business.
Oh god, ER and Scrubs and Grey's Anatomy and House weren't just some made up fantasies after all. Doctors and nurses really are so turned on by blood, vomit, and neurosurgery that they really are screwing each other at every possible opportunity. At least with healthcare, "working late tonight, honey" isn't a totally dodgy excuse.
2. The Aviation Industry
Rolling it at number two is the aviation industry - pilots, flight attendants, and (we suppose) ground staff. To be totally honest with you, we've never once got a stewardess to even smile at us, let alone whip us off for a quickie in the plane toilets, but it sounds like it really does happen. Anyway, the biggest problem with cheating is always finding a secret place away from home, and anyone working for an airline certainly has that covered.
1. The Financial Industry
If you think about it, we really should have seen this one coming. Money is sex, and sex is money. Just take a look at any of the billionaires and their stunning model girlfriends - there's no way they'd be touching that wrinkly bag if he was broke. And at the center of it all is the finance industry, where sexy fortunes are won every second of every day.
There are some notable omissions from this list, in case you were wondering. Things like adult film actresses and sex workers, both of which you would think would blow (ha!) the financial industry out of the water. But maybe none of the 5000 ladies in the survey worked in those places. It's possible. Or maybe, just maybe, they don't consider what they do to be cheating. Again, it's possible.
What This Means
It's actually a pretty comprehensive list, and chances are by now you've realized that your girl really does one of these jobs. But let's take a deep breath, and not freak out. Is she more likely to cheat if she works in one of these sectors? Well, yes. But is it certain? Abso-tootly-utely not. You just keep being the best guy in the world to her, and she'll stay true. Trust us.
