IT AP­PEARS that women who are en­gaged in ex­tra­mar­i­tal af­fairs take bet­ter care of their bod­ies and pay more at­ten­tion to their ap­pear­ances.

This is ac­cord­ing to a re­cent study which found that of those sur­veyed in coun­tries around the world, 64% of adul­ter­ous South African women ad­mit­ted they go to the gym more than once a week.

These find­ings form part of a study by Vic­to­ria Mi­lan, an in­ter­net dat­ing web­site for mar­ried and at­tached peo­ple look­ing to cheat.

The site looked into the ex­er­cise habits of over a mil­lion fe­male mem­bers from 22 coun­tries to find out who is keep­ing in the best shape by hit­ting the gym more than once a week.

These coun­tries in­clude South Africa, the US, the UK, Fin­land, New Zealand, Aus­tralia, Canada and Ire­land. Women in Nor­way, Swe­den, Den­mark, Ger­many, Spain and Poland also par­tic­i­pated in the ex­tra­mar­i­tal study.

The founder and chief ex­ec­u­tive of Vic­to­ria Mi­lan, Sig­urd Vedal, ex­plained that the re­search drew the con­clu­sion that women with a high sex drive who in­dulge in ex­tra­mar­i­tal af­fairs have a lot more en­ergy.

“Women who have ex­tra­mar­i­tal af­fairs are likely to lead a healthy life­style and stay in shape for longer, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent study into the ex­er­cise habits of those who sweat it out in the gym and in bed­rooms other than their own,” he said.

“When they’re not burn­ing it off in the bed­room, they head to the gym to keep in shape for their lovers.”

The re­sults of the study found that Fin­nish women topped the list of hav­ing the most phys­i­cally ac­tive women with about 75% of them head­ing to sweat it out on the tread­mill more than once a week.

The study re­vealed that women from English-speak­ing coun­tries are more con­scious about stay­ing trim and toned for their lovers.

This in­cluded New Zealan­ders com­ing in first po­si­tion on the list of English speak­ers, with 73% of the women in that coun­try who par­tic­i­pated in the study ad­mit­ting they take steps to en­sure they stay trim and slim.

This was fol­lowed by women from Aus­tralia, Canada and the UK, which all came in at 71%. The US came in at 69% and Ire­land with 68% of women stat­ing that they all make reg­u­lar use of their gym mem­ber­ship.

While 13.9% of Fin­nish women were the most con­scious of keep­ing it tight and ex­er­cis­ing daily, 11.8% of ladies from Aus­tralia, 12.1% from Ire­land, 10.8% from the US, 10.7% from Canada and 19.6 % from the UK were mo­ti­vated enough to head to the gym daily.

Vedal said the re­sults showed that women who have af­fairs were mo­ti­vated to keep in shape and that be­ing healthy and fit was an added bonus.

“Stay­ing toned and fit gives you more con­fi­dence to take on lovers and keep your sex life alive and well,” he said.

“So when gents are flirt­ing with women from these coun­tries, they can safely as­sume that there’ll be a beau­ti­fully toned body un­der­neath her clothes.”

A woman who is cur­rently in a re­la­tion­ship with a mar­ried man, and for this rea­son didn’t want to be named, told The Star that she agreed with the find­ings of the study.

“I put a lot of ef­fort into my ap­pear­ance and make sure that I eat healthily, go to the gym reg­u­larly and dress well be­cause I want to keep my man,” she ex­plained.

“He al­ready has a wife and fam­ily and I al­ways feel like I have to of­fer him some­thing ex­tra.”
