When it comes to cheating on your spouse, there's no place like Las Vegas.
Many of those surveyed by the controversial AshleyMadison.com dating website for married people seeking extramarital affairs say Las Vegas is the place to stay for love in the fast lane.
In a survey of 7,680 AshleyMadison users in the United States, 53 percent admitted to cheating in a Las Vegas hotel. Those surveyed even named their resorts of choice with 24 percent favoring Wynn Las Vegas, 18 percent liking the Palms, 13 percent, MGM Grand, 12 percent, Caesars Palace and 9 percent, Bellagio.
"The Las Vegas tourism industry depends on adultery to fill all those hotel rooms," said Noel Biderman, AshleyMadison.com's founder and CEO.
"Many Las Vegas businesses make more than half of their profits off affair clientele – not just rooms, but lavish room service orders tend to accompany most steamy affairs – so they're more than happy to turn the other cheek when guests check in under an alias with someone who isn't their spouse," he said.
What happens here, stays here indeed.
The survey also said 46 percent of the respondents admitted staying in Las Vegas for multiple days with their affair partner with 35 percent saying they stayed one night. Just 14 percent said they spent less than half a day here when philandering.
The survey also said Las Vegans apparently prefer the value proposition to impressing their partners in a high-end setting.
Of the AshleyMadison members who call Southern Nevada home, most preferred hooking up in cheat suites at the Stratosphere, Circus Circus and Treasure Island.
