“Life is short. Have an affair,” so says the Ashley Madison Agency, an internet dating service that caters to married people.
They guarantee total satisfaction, but the $249 sign-up fee means more buck for bang than more traditional avenues (i.e. craigslist).
And while other businesses cut back on advertising, the self-described “world’s #1 married dating service specifically for attached men and women who are looking to have an extra-marital affair” is attracting unlikely (read: desperate) bedfellows like ESPN, a subsidiary of Disney. Public Relations rep Binu Koshi explains, “Networks are calling us now. That has never happened five, six months ago.”
Talk about propping up the economy.
