Cheating Websites Posts

When the Ashley Madison hack hit the media in July, there was nonstop coverage for 45 straight days. It was relentless. Which celebrity is on it. Politicians too? Wait, my neighbor? OMG I just can’t stop reading about it. This about sums up the summer for the tabloid person. Fast forward to present day, and what you’re seeing is a very interesting landscape. So the question that I wanted to answer involves these cheating sites. Are the best cheating websites in the marketplace actually growing?

Lets look at the broader market. If you’re in the market for a discreet relationship, the last thing your going to do in 2015 (even after post hack) is join a traditional online dating site. Well I mean, you’d be insanely foolish to join, pretend you were single, have a one sided affair, then run a gigantic risk of the other party flipping out on you (and your partner, your employee, and your family). So let’s be clear, society will ALWAYS need cheating websites.

The next issue to handle is from a man’s perspective. Are there real women on the best cheating websites out there? What post Ashley Madison hack has taught us is real simple, women go where the money is. The hack actually gave some validity for women that never heard of the site.

The end result will show you an insane rush of females joining these cheating sites. After all, everyone simply got smarter. While you might chat online, it’s much briefer. The fantasy of chatting all day and never meeting is gone. No one wants to waste their time and no one wants to risk it ever getting out. In some weird way, this hack might have been the best thing to ever happen to cheating websites out there.

Think outside the box!

The Ashley Madison hack is real after all! Quick background which many are aware of. A month ago, to the day basically, a hacking group threatened Ashley Madison (Avid Life Media) to take down their site or all their membership data will be exposed. Fast forward a month later, sites are still up, now so is the 37+ million membership details!

Since this story is just unfolding, the amount of salacious details that will come out will keep TMZ, Perez Hilton, Late Night talk shows and a slew of other gossip sites busy for years. Think about the array of men and women on the site.  Government workers, police, celebrities, athletes, the gamut is incredibly large. Josh Duggar being one of the first to be outed.

On the flip side, you have everyday men and women on the site. Married, needing to keep this discreet. Partners who will eventually find out and start flipping out on these men (and women, oops). Bitter fights and divorces will occur, lives will be turned upside down, and the amount of law suits across the board will be high as well.

Looking at the data, we see data that shows names, addresses, emails, and passwords. The passwords were highly encrypted, very tough to crack – even though I’m sure if there’s a target someone is after, they will figure out password (hopefully every single user on Ashley Madison changed their password by now). While this type of date doesn’t prove anything, the ones that actually laid down the credit card does. With the last 4 digits on display and IP addresses, you can pretty much guarantee to have a really upset partner.

We will post additional details shortly. Only so many lattes you can drink and type!

One month ago, the Ashley Madison hack was released to the world. Overnight, 30 days later, the full list of members were released. Being able to see the data is mind boggling. From what’s been reported and from what we’ve seen, it’s a crazy array of data.

First off, there’s nearly 10 gigs of data. Now that’s an insane amount of data. Sifting through it all with take days and weeks. Various technical reporters are going through it with a fine comb. The media storm is building, but the largest media outlets haven’t even touched it yet. Think about all the celeb, pseudo celebs, C-list celebs, maybe even A-List cells other. TMZ, Entertainment Tonight, will have an field day here.

The data shows name, addresses, emails, passwords (encrypted) and IPs. Now, anyone can use anyone’s email address to signup. So anyone could sign up Donald Trump on Ashley Madison, not necessarily meaning he’s on the site (even though I’m sure every political pundit would love for that to happen). I digress. What’s really invaluable are the credit card transactions. If someone laid down a credit card to be a member, he’s actively messaging women on the site. That, is where the fun begins. Who did he message, what did he say. What does his profile say? The list goes on and on. With 10 gigs of data, it’s a lot to sift through.

Another interesting component is the internal Ashley Madison database documents. Remember when Sony was hacked, one of the large stories was the salary discrepancies. Women getting paid less than male actors. Salary differences between employees. Things like this can rock the core of a company.

At the end of the day though, Ashley Madison is the largest network of discreet encounters out there. Men and women will continue to use a discreet dating a way to fill a void. The Ashley Madison hack will teach the underground world of affairs that you need to be very very careful with your data!

For those seeking affair dating sites, the latest Ashley Madison hack has taught us to be very careful with our data. Would you ever want your personal information out there? I mean, there’s a reason you’re trying to be discreet in the first place!

Forget about those who are looking to judge you for being on a site like this. There are several reasons why affair sites exist. What’s more important is understanding what not to do on these affair dating sites.

Here are our top 3 pitfalls to avoid on affair dating sites:

1. User Data – when it comes to your user data, don’t give away public information that could identify you. Email address, use a generic account. Phone number, use a separate number that gets forwarded to you. Address, don’t use your home address. Credit cards, use Paypal, Bitcoin, or a prepaid debit card

2. Be Up Front – when engaging with members, tell them up front what your situation is and what you’re looking for. When dealing with members that need to be discreet, the last thing either wants is to be surprised. That emotion can turn into anger, then into revenge. The havoc raised by something like this is extreme. It’s like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. Why bang the nanny and have her thing you’re a “thing”, when you can have a discreet relationship with someone that truly gets your situation.

3. No Such Thing as Free – Do you really think an affair dating site will be free? Not only that, do you really expect to find an affair with the first person you chat with? Sites like Ashley Madison are popular and highly profitable. Get a TON of credits. It’s a numbers game, communicate with as many women as possible. You will eventually find that affair you’re looking for.

The first member reported by the media for the first Ashley Madison hack is from the Boston area. When I read this, I think I laughed for a solid minute. I mean, the area is knows as a highly religious city. A suburb of Boston, Brockton, as identified. I’m sure this town never thought it’s name would be in the news more than it is today.

That’s the thing with cheating sites. It’s in every aspect of society. Regardless of religion and race, it’s a type of relationship that is occurring everywhere. One might ask “what’s wrong with out society”. But if you were to ask any married man or any married women why cheating occurs, each individual completely understands why. Lust is removed from the relationship, replaced with life, and you’re left with this void.

This void, ultimately gets filled with another partner. The explosive growth of Ashley Madison makes it a unique crossroads with this Ashley Madison hack. Whether you’re ta man from Brockton, or a woman that started looking years ago, there’s a reason this void needs to be filled. Will this hack stop this behavior. Of course note. People at the end of the day have short term memory. Additionally, people will get smarter in their ways of navigating cheating websites.

We all know the Ashley Madison hack that occurred this past weekend has taken up the news circuit.  The group of hackers were not only demanding the cheating site of Ashley Madison to be taken down, but also the sugar daddy site Established Men. The Established Men hack is a bit odd in my view, until you look at it from a different angle.

This is an interesting demand. Sugar daddies, sugar babies, who cares right? Well, here’s the thing. On one side, a decent percentage of sugar daddies are married, hence raising the blackmail value of the members. On the other side, you have anti sex work activists that are lumping this in the prostitution bucket.

When you combine groups and organizations that are against such rights, you start putting a blackmail value on the database. Now, if these men and women were smart, they used some secondary data on signup. For instance: fake name, prepaid credit cards, PO Box, not their home line, etc.

As a society, we are essentially immune to hearing “XYZ site has been hacked”. With credit card information comprised, consumers feel it’s not as bad as they will simply get a new credit card. Very classic form of conditioning if you ask me.

The Hack of Adult Friend Finder
The Hack of Adult Friend Finder

Fast forward to the past two months. When the casual dating site Adult Friend Finder (AFF) was hacked, it got rather large attention. Owned by Penthouse (not sure if that is still the case actually, but was at one time),  this was one of the first sties in the hook up space. It got national attention with it’s hack of 3.5 million members. Take a look at how their traffic was effected. The picture on the right shows it’s Alexa traffic ranking. Can you guess when the hack was made public? The effects of such a hack has brought their traffic levels down, but as you can see, has leveled off in the past month.

With today’s announcement of Ashley Madison, the implications could have a resounding effect. The site is 10x the size of Adult Friend Finder with 37 million members. International reach of over 40 countries. Adding to this, the site caters exclusively to discreet dating. Will customers still feel confident enough in the discretionary side to continue using this site? Here’s my unique perspective.

Yes, I fully believe that Ashley Madison will take a traffic hit like AFF did. However, since Ashley has such a large membership base, you will still have interactions on the site. If anything, you know have a rather unique ice breaker for members of the site.  On the economics side, dating for affairs or singles is still a numbers game. Ashley Madison is still the largest site on the planet when it comes to affairs. To think that people will just go else is just nonsense.

What will happen is something quite smart. Members of the site will start using: fake email addresses, prepaid credit cards (home address not revealed), and addresses that are not their own. True discretion for a site that has members that do this already. For the newbies, go in with the right head and leave with peace of mind!

Various financial news outlets discussed Ashley Madison’s parent company to file an IPO in London. On initial look, the general masses will be upset that an “adultery” company even exists. Add to the fact they have approx 115 million in revenue and have a proposed evaluation of 1 billion dollars will drive certain men and women bonkers. Noel BIderman, CEO of Avid Life Media, can provide you a counter argument on every single negative component you can mention about this top ranked cheating website. Instead of looking at the argument, let’s pull a Mr Wonderful on Shark Tank and tell you how you will make MONEY.

What you have here is a growth company that is quoted as being profitable. For a dating company that’s incredibly tough. Strip out Match & eHarmony, you’re left with very few. Ashley Madison gets most over their revenue from North America, but expect Asia to represent 50% of their revenues in the next 5 years. Think about that. If they conquer that market like they did the US & Canada, that’s an extremely conservative assessment.

With explosive growth in Asia, it’s no surprise that the demand for constant and growing returns is there on the financial side. Sure North America might be too timid for such a thing, but a return is a return.

Adding to this are some of the non Ashley Madison brands. Cougar Life with those constant jingles .

So before you knock an Ashley Madison IPO, remember that infidelity has occurred since the beginning of time. This company, has found a way to profit off if it. Now you can too. No brainer!

When it comes to affairs, there are several reasons why men and women go down this road.  At the end of the day, it essentially comes out to these three areas. This trifecta is at the core of the largest and best cheating websites out there.

Emotional Affair
Generally geared towards women, here are women looking for affairs as they feel emotionally neglected. While some turn to girlfriends, many prefer the company of a man that will give them the emotional connection they are missing. This affair as generally the beginning of what turns into the trifecta affair

Sexual Affair
This is the staple of most affairs. Every single marriage hits a sex rut, which in turns develops into a sexual affair. Think about it, the thought of your parents having sex makes you cringe. They too use to have sex, but at some point just stopped. Regardless of age, we are all sexual being. While many will turn to self gratification, a growing need to be with another physical body is so large that it overtakes the need for an affair

Financial Affair
Most never think about this affair as relevant. Thing is, in every marriage, most fights occur due to money and sex. The money part, causes a huge amount of fights. For these relationships, if there were additional funds, the relationship would be right on track. Think of it like the movie Indecent Proposal, but with a modern twist.

Regardless of the trifecta of affairs, knowing which one resonates with you will allow you to approach the proper counter part on cheating sites like Ashley Madison.

As the New Year is upon us, it becomes a time of reflection and the hopes of what’s to come. Everyone goes through it in various shapes and forms. Some will simply talk about it with some friends over drinks, while others seriously ponder what life changes they can make. Everything from careers to love interest is up for fair game.

When it comes to affairs and cheating, 2015 brings a unique challenge. You’ve might have heard that many couples have stayed together due to finances. It’s horrible to think about, two people now wanting to be with each other, but are given they can’t financially live apart. With the slight turn in the economy, you are seeing married men and women looking to partners outside of their relationships.

Cheating websites know that the growth in the infidelity space will continue to grow. So much so that you are starting to see a huge increase in marketing spend behind some of these large brands in the space.

My tip, if you’re going this route, be absolutely certain. Once you start, it will be VERY hard for you to go back to life prior to cheating sites.
