Has A Lack Of Love From The Public Driven Bankers Into Extra-Marital Affairs?

That's the bizarre conclusion drawn from the results of a recent survey by affair-facilitating website IllicitEncounters, despite the fact that none of the financial services hacks surveyed responded to the question, "Why are you cheating" with the answer "because the public just isn't giving it to me like it used to." Here's what they did say:
* "Just want to feel loved"
* "For the thrill"
* "Unstable home life"
* "To escape the mundane"
* "To boost the ego"
* "To avoid costly divorces"
* "To lavish my hard earned money on someone"
* "I'm entitled to it"
* "Because I can"
* "Peer pressure"

Obviously though, perhaps we're just not reading between the lines. Maybe the longer version of the Goldman Sachs employee's response "just want to feel loved" is "just want to feel loved; wouldn't have to B my L on some T's that don't belong to my W if the public would stop hating on me." Regardless of your decision to dip your wick in someone strange sweet, take heart! You no longer have to hide it from your colleagues. Everybody does it and they want you to talk about it:

Says one respondent: "Where I work, many of the tops dogs are open about their affairs. Having a mistress is like having a flash car."


Husband's Lack Of Interest In Recreating 50 Shades Of Grey Scenarios Straw That Broke The Camel's Back For British Banker

The couple is getting a quickie divorce that should be wrapped up shortly, if you know anyone both familiar with the plot lines and interested. The wife, a 41-year-old banker earning more than £400,000 a year, claims her husband’s ‘boring attitude’ to sex is evidence of ‘unreasonable behaviour’. In her grounds for divorce, filed at the High Court, she refers to the novel, which tells of the sadomasochistic affair between billionaire Christian Grey and naive student Anastasia Steele. The woman in the court case bought the raunchy book almost as soon as it was published last year and hoped it would encourage her husband to be more adventurous in bed. The wife’s solicitor, Amanda McAlister, a family law expert, believes the case is the first where the new phenomenon of ‘mummy porn’ has triggered a divorce. She said: ‘The woman had been reading the book and wanted to spice up her love life. ‘She thought their sex life had hit a rut – he never remembered Valentine’s Day and he never complimented her on her appearance. So she bought sexy underwear in an attempt to get her husband more involved. She said, “Let’s make things more interesting." ‘But when he still didn’t take any notice she told him he had a boring attitude to sex and she was fed up. ‘He went ballistic when he found out the name of the book she was reading and told her, “It’s all because you have been reading that bloody book”.’ The husband is admitting ‘unreasonable behaviour’ so the divorce can be granted quickly without a contested hearing in which his alleged low libido would be discussed in court. 50 Shades of Divorce: Wife 'inspired' by erotic book says husband failed to meet her expectations [DM] Fifty Shades Of Grey Leads Woman To Divorce Her Husband [NYDN]
