Ashley Madison, the worlds biggest online hookup site for married people, works only when monogamy is the rule on the surface but, deep inside, couples want to cheat. Thats why it is scoring big in Japan.
The nation that prides itself on conformity and proper appearances reached a million users in eight and a half months, the fastest pace among any of the 37 countries where the adultery site operates. The previous record was Brazil at 10 months. The U.S., which has the biggest number of users at 13 million, took a year to achieve the one million mark. Spain took nearly two years.
Extramarital sex and affairs are not new to Japan, but a site such as Ashley Madison is a a leveling out of the playing field for women, said Noel Biderman, chief executive of Avid Life Media Inc., which operates AshleyMadison.com. There is a tradition of wealthy men taking mistresses in Japan and its male-dominated society has provided plenty of outlets for married men to find casual sex.

Adultery is pretty rife in Japan. Many of the married men don’t consider fuzoku (legalized prostitution) as cheating on one’s wife/girlfriend so why not get it for free?
these people are scum
Why not commit Adultery? High murder rate, high venereal disease rate, and a high rate on the road to Hell.
Are these people kidding themselves? I work with fansub groups for current anime shows and their hentai’ sh*t is sicker than American porn. They even have bi-annual porn conventions for manga alone which attracts millions in the country. Conservative my ass..
the most perverted country on Earth
Isn't that what Al Gore intended when he invented them?
Given the number of “love hotels” in Japan, this article shouldn’t come as a surprise.
having traveled there on business very often, I’d say they are no more - or less - horny than any other country I traveled.
The difference is there is this Japanese image we westerners have of them (manners, customs, rituals, demure women) and so their normal horniness appears in strong contrast to that.
I suggest that their level of extra marital affairs are no more nor less than the USA’s.
You get Japan.
Sad and sick, but I’m curious how they even know the participants really are married as they say.

The honor system! Can’t believe you would question their morality. lol
Oh, the morality is impeccable!
And many, many fake female ads to lure the guys in. That is where the money is.
Plus a big marketing communications/public relations department that plants these “stories” with the media looking for risqué material.
It is all pretend.
“From those wonderful folks who brought you Pearl Harbor”
Maybe the long term effects of the atomic bombings were more pervasive & lasting than we thought.
Haiku, bonsai trees, rock gardens, kamedana shrines, calligraphy, kabuki, bronze Buddhas - what happened to classical Japan?
At least look at the bright side. They did gave us GODZILLA.
