GETTING TO KNOW ASHLEYMADISON

 

AshleyMadison.com is a dating service that offers its members the opportunity to have discreet relationships outside of their marriage or current relationship. The name was inspired by the two most popular baby names in the US in the year 2001, “Ashley” and “Madison.” Founded by Noel Biderman in 2001, Ashley Madison has become one of the most popular dating sites in the world with more than 8 million members. Owned by Avid Life Media, a Toronto based company, its premise was inspired when Noel Biderman, a former Chicago Sports Agent, read an article about how 30 percent of internet dating service users were pretending to be single when they weren’t. He is quoted as saying, “Monogamy, in my opinion, is a failed experiment.” The numbers seem to be working in his favor. Its presence is now in more than 10 countries and continues to grow. It has a 70 to 30 percent male to female ratio.

RECOMMENDATION

 

AshleyMadison.com is a very different type of dating site and it has been no stranger to controversy. In 2009, NBC, a TV Network, banned an AshleyMadison.com ad from appearing during a broadcast of Superbowl XLIII. In the same year, an offer of $200,000 by AshleyMadison.com to advertise on 10 Toronto Streetcars was also rejected by the Toronto Transit Commission. However, AshleyMadison.com has never claimed to be anything that it isn’t. It’s slogan alone, “Life is Short. Have an Affair,” speaks for itself. I found that it was a very effective dating site for those looking for some escape from their current relationship whether it be through chatting, cyber sex or an actual physical encounter.
