Survey shows 95% of women who cheat never get caught by their partners....83% of men DO get found out
UndercoverLovers.com asked 3,000 women and the same number of men if their partners knew about their cheating and found the overall percentage of straying spouses that never get found out is 89 per cent.
According to Dr David Holmes, a psychologist at Manchester Metropolitan University, women are having more affairs than ever but they behave very differently from men when they cheat.
Recent studies suggest the figure is around 20 per cent for men and a little over 15 per cent for women.
Dr Holmes says: 'Women are better liars because they're more psychologically sophisticated.
'Emotionally they make plans and have strategies, while men are more impulsive.
'The biggest difference is that women are much better at keeping their affairs secret.
'If you look at the studies into paternity, even conservative figures show that between eight and 15 per cent of children haven't been fathered by the man who thinks he's the biological parent.'
Emily Pope of Undercover Lovers, which has more than 650,000 members, said: 'Many of our members, both male and female, have been philandering for years without being caught.
'Studies have shown that women are actually better liars than men, so it's not surprising that female adulterers are better at getting away with it than their male counterparts.'
