Life is short. Have an affair.

Ahhh, America: Land of the free, home of the brave... cheating husbands and wives.

Ashley Madison is a website dedicated to servicing a niche often overlooked, or even actively avoided, in online dating circles: married people. Although you can join if you're single, the site is geared towards discreet relationships. If you’re already attached, you normally have limited time to spend with someone else, so its quality—not quantity—that counts. In the case
of AshleyMadison.com, time well spent clearly means intimate encounters. It's enough to pique anyone's interest, so let us dig into the details…

The profile process is simple. It lacks the essays and endless questions that haunt traditional singles portals. Instead, you face a handful of multiple-choice questions that target the practical details of what you want in an encounter with someone new. Some sex dating sites do the same, but you'll feel that Ashley Madison is sincerely providing a place for inconspicuous meetings. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that there’s not much to look at when it comes to members' photos.

There are a few cute features. For example, a 'panic button' redirects you to a movie trailer site, if someone comes up behind you snooping at what you're doing. There are tips, not designed to tell you how to go about cheating, but instead, how to find success on the site. They give some sage advice, such as pointing out that if you're single, it may be harder to hookup with individuals who are attached as they're risking more.

Ashley Madison Agency has just celebrated its 2 millionth member signup. 2 million people that are either married and thinking about having an affair, or single and looking for someone that is married to cheat with. Whatever the reason, Ashley Madison Agency seems to work and work well.
