A barmaid said she “doesn’t feel guilty” about having an affair with a married businessman during the coronavirus lockdown.
Helen, 34, met her lover in January and have been getting with each other since the lockdown restrictions were imposed in March.
The barmaid started speaking to the married fella, who is in his forties, on the affairs website IllicitEncounters.com because she likes dating richer, older men.
She revealed: “We have been together for about six weeks prior to the Government introducing the restrictions on movement and, until then, had met up once a week for sex – always at my flat.
“We cooled it for a few weeks after lockdown, thinking that the restrictions would end quickly, but when lockdown began to drag on, we resumed the affair.
“My lover comes to my flat once a week for sex just as he did before. We have a meal, a bottle of wine and then spend the afternoon in bed. It is lovely.
“Neither of us are working at the moment and this is our way of letting off a little steam. My lover also works in hospitality, running several bars and restaurants.”
Helen, from west London, continued: “He is married with three grown-up children and his wife turns a blind eye to his affairs because his sex drive is higher than hers.
“I live on my own. If I had not seen my lover, I would not have been able to meet anyone for almost two months. Who wants to live like that?
“You don’t often hear about the struggles that single people have getting human company in this crisis.
“Myself and my lover don’t meet anyone else and practise social distancing in all other parts of our lives, but neither of us was prepared to give up our affair.”
Helen claims that she’s physically fit with no underlying issues, adding: “If I am unlucky to get the virus, the chances are I will have mild symptoms.
“It doesn’t feel right that I have to completely put my life on hold.”
And Helen doesn’t feel any ounce of guilt about seeing a man who is married with kids.
She concluded: “He has been having affairs for years. If it was not me, it would be someone else.
“Some people are not suited to monogamy. If their wife is okay with that, then where is the harm?”
