Rebecca Young, 36, tried three different looks on a dating website to see which would get the most interest from men – blonde, brunette and redhead.
She switched from her natural brunette to go blonde – and also wore red lipstick for her profile picture.
She said: “It was like I was a completely new woman. Suddenly I had lots of men desperate to have sex with me because I was blonde.
“I also made some other changes to my profile picture – wearing bright red lipstick to look more alluring.
“I think I looked a lot more available and fun and men could see that I was up for a good time.
“I had five men all keen to have sex despite the lockdown. It was very tempting but I believe we do have to abide by the restrictions for now.
“I have been enjoying having Facetime sex while we are all stuck at home, but I will have full blown affairs with some of them when lockdown ends.”
“People are so frustrated at present because they cannot meet new people for sex. There is going to be a huge explosion of passion when lockdown is lifted.”
Rebecca dates using IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading affairs site, because the men on it are rich – and she likes to be spoiled.
Rebecca had tried other dating sites such as Tinder but got fed-up meeting men who were skint and expected her to pay or share the bill when they went out.
She started out with a profile featuring her natural hair colour of brunette, before switching to red and then finally hitting the jackpot with her new blonde look.
She said: “I have been using IllicitEncounters.com for a couple of years after a friend recommended it to me because lots of the men on it are loaded.
“I know that sounds a bit shallow but I don’t earn a lot as a care worker and I got fed up dating men who had no money.
“It was nice meeting men who were only to happy to pay and maybe spoil me with a gift as well.
“I started out on the site using my natural brunette colour.
“I did okay and had a couple of relationships but I didn’t get a huge response.
“I think one of the problems was I didn’t pick a very glamorous profile picture – I was wearing no make-up and looked a little flat.
“I decided to dye my hair red in the hope of sparking more interest. That didn’t work either.
“My hair didn’t look quite right and I made the mistake of wearing an old T-shirt in my profile picture when I should have worn something sexier.
“That is when I decided to go fully blonde and make myself look a lot more attractive.
“The change was instant – with more than 30 men messaging me and keen to take things further.
“Many of them were not too bothered about the lockdown and would have had sex immediately but I have told them to wait.
“I have whittled down those original 30 to five and I am having a lot of fun during lockdown flirting and having Facetime sex.”
She says she does not feel guilty about dating married men.
She said: “If they were not cheating with me, it would be someone else. It is not like I am breaking up anyone’s marriage.
“Two of the men have open marriages and their wives cheat, too. One of the wives even joined in one time when we were having Facetime sex.
“With the other three men, their wives have lost interest in sex or they are having affairs themselves.
“One of the men runs bars and restaurants and all his businesses are currently closed. He has no work to do at present and is online looking for fun.
“Another man is an accountant who says that his marriage has died in the last five years and they are staying together for the sake of the children.
“His wife turns a blind eye to his cheating.
“Sticking with the same partner for 40 years is boring, let’s face it. Monogamy doesn’t work when so many of us want to have sex with more than one person.”
Rebecca does not work in a care home and provides private care for one professional client.
She said she is very busy during lockdown and practises social distancing at all times.
The IllicitEncounters.com website has seen a 15% rise in activity since lockdown started because people stuck at home with their partners are looking for excitement elsewhere.
Jessica Leoni, illicitEncounters.com sex and relationship expert, said: “Like Rebecca, lots of our members are having great sex during lockdown but they are doing it remotely for now.
“That will all change in the next month or so when lockdown is finally eased and we will see a huge explosion in the number of full-blown affairs.”
