Cities with the most cheaters:

  1. Portland, Oregon

While some surveys put Portland on the list as one of the coolest cities to live in, Ashley Madison’s report tells a different story. According to their data, Portland landed the 20th spot for infidelity. This might not come as a shock given that it was named one of the kinkiest cities in America in another recent poll.

  1. Washington, D.C.

The nation’s capital ranked 19 nationwide for being home to many cheaters. For many, it is not a surprise at all. Have you seen House of Cards, Scandal or any other show that depicts life and the political scene in Washington? It’s been only a couple of years since now-former Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) admitted to being invited to a local orgy.

  1. Seattle

Seattle ranked 18 in Ashley Madison’s survey for infidelity, giving a whole new meaning to the phrase: “Sleepless in Seattle”. More than that, according to local station KING, the Emerald city is “the hub for commercial sex in the Northwest.”

  1. Aurora, Colorado

The birthplace of nitwits Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World has landed the 17th spot for adulterous behavior. In the words of Wayne Campbell: “Garth, marriage is punishment for shoplifting in some countries,” it’s clear why Aurora has made it on the cheating list.

  1. Bakersfield, California

Just north of Los Angeles, we have Bakersfield. The number nine city in California in terms of population. The population who prompted the suburb to the 16th position for infidelity. There are more cheaters in Bakersfield than in Los Angeles, who hasn’t even made it on this list. Talk about preconceptions.

8-7. Saint Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota

The twin cities ranked 8th and 7th on the list of cities with the most cheaters. Apart from Ashley Madison’s survey, Saint Paul and Minneapolis have also been called the fittest cities, healthiest cities, best cities for single people, happiest cities or drunkest cities. We have the distinct impression that the last two titles might be related!

  1. Cincinnati

The city’s name might be difficult to spell, but it’s easy to love. At least that’s what its citizens say. Maybe they are not wrong about the easy love part, as the third most populous city in Ohio has reached the 6th position on Ashley Madison’s top 20 cities where adultery is thriving.

Bienvenidos a Miami, the nation’s capital for infidelity. As revealed by Ashley Madison, Miami is the national hub and home to naughty behavior and cheaters.
