The spirit of Easter does not influence people to abstain from having sex outside their marriage
We have conducted an online survey which 2.635 males and 1.478 women responded. The survey asked if they ever fast before Easter and if so, what they deprive themselves of.
The results show that most respondents (members of extramarital dating website), 87% of men and 91% of women, say that during the Holy Week they don’t deprive themselves of shopping or having sex and neither males or females maintain the tradition of fasting.
Surprisingly, when questioned about whether they would ever abstain from cheating, 49.6% of the women responded that they would. The main reason, with 26,4% of the votes, for giving up cheating is because Easter is considered a time for families. The rest, 50,4% of women surveyed and 9 of every 10 men said they would not deprive themselves of having an adulterous adventure during Easter mainly because they do not practice any religion.
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said: “Most men and women do not see the point in changing just for the Easter period if they are going to cheat again after Easter. But nearly half of the women surveyed are affected by the tradition and consider Easter being the time for family”.
