Sex or your money back: Founder of adultery website makes ultimate promise… as he renews his wedding vows
www.dailymail.co.uk – It has to be the ultimate money back guarantee – the promise of a successful extra-marital affair, or your money back.
And that is exactly what infidelity website Ashleymadison.com is offering punters, as long as they follow the on-line dating guidelines.
The news comes as the controversial site’s founder Noel Biderman renewed his vows in Australia.
The website, whose slogan ‘Life is short. Have an affair’, has attracted criticism from religious and family groups since it was founded in 2001.
But despite the intense criticism, the site has a world-wide membership of over eight million cheaters.
Speaking to the Australian Herald Sun, Mr Biderman contended that affairs, just like marriages, had to be worked on.
He said: ‘If you want to find the right level of success, we think there is the commitment level you need to make, and if it doesn’t work out for you then we’ll give you your money back.’
In a bid to cover up digital love rats, the site deletes communication between users while also hiding their true identities.
Biderman, who has been married to his wife Amanda for around eight years, said in a 2008 interview he would be ‘crushed’ if he ever found out she had cheated.
Speaking to momlogic.com, he said: ‘I am faithful. My wife has emotional and physical needs I must meet.
‘If I don’t, she may cheat on me. And believe me, I’d be crushed if that were to happen.
‘But I’d also have to face the reasons why.’
But while Mr Biderman was in Australia to cement his own marriage, his presence has angered at least one family group in the country.
Speaking to the Herald, Peter Stokes of the country’s Family Council of Victoria lamented the website’s success in his own country.
He said: ‘The sheer fact that he thinks there’s a market out there shows how degraded we’ve become in terms what we think relationships are.
‘Yes, some marriages break up, yes some husbands play up and so do some wives, but do we have to normalise it.’
