A new survey in Britain has found that the number of Catholics looking for affairs is almost twice that of other religions.
This isn’t surprising to me since Catholics are taught that the simple act of confessing will erase their sins.

Also, the strict religious rules about sex may actually encourage bad behavior for some people.
Christine Elvin, a Harley Street social therapist, agrees: “In tight structured relationships the pressure is huge, religious boundaries can create many rules and to obey them all could result in some feeling suffocated and tempted to escape so they can feel alive again.”
Rosie Freeman-Jones, a spokesperson for Illicit Encounters, agrees: “Religious people have a much stronger sense of right and wrong, which also means they’re likely to get a bigger thrill from breaking the rules.”
