41% of Indian women admitted to having regular sex

A survey has revealed that 55% of married Indians have cheated on their spouses at least once.

The survey was carried out by Gleeden, the first extra-marital dating app.

The survey also revealed that among the unfaithful Indians, 56% are women.

In fact, 48% of Indians believe it is possible to be in love with two people at the same time, while 46% think that one can cheat on their partner while still being in love with them.

This is possibly why Indians are ready to forgive their partners in case they find out about the affair.

This is highlighted by the survey as seven per cent would forgive the cheating partner without hesitation while 40% would do so if the circumstances were mitigating.

Similarly, 69% of married Indians who had cheated would expect to be forgiven by their partner.

This research was conducted among 1,525 Indian married individuals between the ages of 25 and 50, across Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.

Gleeden was launched in India in 2017.

Its latest figures show that there are 800,000 subscribers in the country.

There was a subscriber boom in 2018 after the Supreme Court decriminalised adultery and said the law was against the right to equality and life.

The judgment was also seen as a move against patriarchy and gender inequality.

That said, Gleeden’s survey reported that India’s divorce rate is the lowest in the world at one per cent, where out of every 1,000 couples, only 13 split up.

Ninety per cent of Indian marriages are still arranged by families while there are just five per cent of love marriages.

The survey showed that 49% of married people in India admitted to having an intimate relationship with someone other than their spouse, while almost 5 out of 10 have already indulged in casual sex (47%) or one-night stands (46%).

When it comes to infidelity, Indian women are the most uninhibited.

According to the survey, 41% of Indian women admitted to having regular sex with someone other than their spouse, compared to 26% of men.

Fifty-three per cent of married women admitted having already had an intimate relationship outside their marriage. For men, the figure was 43%.

Solene Paillet, marketing director at Gleeden, said:

“Indian women seem particularly open-minded about infidelity, especially when it involves romance.”

“Gleeden offers a virtual environment where you can start a new love story with like-minded individuals without the downside of a real-life affair.

“Women can have the full romantic experience, resting assured that their privacy will be fully protected, and their secret will remain safe.

“That’s why Gleeden is attracting a bigger number of female users every day, it provides them with privacy, discretion, and a choice of partners way beyond their usual circles.”
