BadOnlineDates.com Survey Shows Definition of Cheating and Promiscuousness has Shifted
New Bad Online Dates infographic shares shocking statistics indicating Americans have loosened standards when it comes to infidelity and sexual behavior—possibly due in part to increased access to pornography and celebrity promiscuity.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2012

Bad Online Dates, a humorous and informative online source of encouragement for people who have experienced bad dates, released the results of a recent survey of hundreds of Americans on the topic of betrayal and cheating. A summary infographic released by Bad Online Dates at BadOnlineDates.com indicates Americans are willing to accept many behaviors as normal that would have been considered shameful infidelity or promiscuousness in past decades. The year-long survey, which ended on May 21, 2012, netted hundreds of responses, mostly from North America.

One of the most telling results of the survey shows only 97.1% of respondents do not believe watching porn is a form of cheating. Bad Online Dates founder/CEO Jennifer Kelton, an expert on dating and romance who has been investigating the game of love for more than 30 years, believes this statistic explains what she considers to be a shift in the definition of cheating.

“We are exposed to naked bodies and bad behaviors everywhere, on the Internet, in reality TV, through news headlines and also in overtly sexual advertising,” Kelton explains. “We’re getting callous to behaviors that would have shocked us a few years ago. Seeing it everywhere makes it seem okay. It has changed what we think of as normal. You don’t think twice about somebody saying, ‘Look she’s naked in the shower with a married bartender that she just met.’”

Kelton points to the following survey results as evidence that society’s definitions of infidelity has changed:

78.3% said they would have a threesome.
Only 4.8% consider using a blow-up doll as cheating.
Nearly 60% said they would not tell their partner about having sex with a hotel bartender.
Almost 67% said they do not believe we are born to be with one person–monogamous.
31% think cheating is sometimes okay.
More than 14% think it would be okay if their best friend was sleeping with a married man or woman.
31% do not consider Arnold Schwarzenegger to be a “cheating douche bag”.

Kelton also believes celebrity behavior has lowered standards for infidelity and promiscuousness. “It’s a train wreck mentality. The naked Lindsay Lohan Playboy spread is breaking records—like it doesn’t matter anymore,” she said. “The tabloids are filled with it. It makes you wonder if we are hardwired for these standards or if they are dictated by culture. Things have really changed since the days of Ozzie and Harriet. I believe technology has changed our conversation about cheating and promiscuity.” She points out that promiscuous behaviors were happening decades ago, but the Internet wasn’t around to make the news—and pictures—available to anyone, anywhere. “Imagine what would have happened when Marilyn Monroe’s affair with the president was exposed, if they’d had the Internet,” she said.

People have different ideas of what is cheating in relationships or promiscuous, Kelton is quick to point out. However, the Bad Online Dates survey and infographic support the idea that the shift has taken place in large segments of the population. “Watching the sloppy drunken cast make-out on Jersey Shore makes me wonder what kind of sexual examples are being set for that generation,” she laughs, “But an increasing number of people think getting drunk and making-out with a complete stranger at a nightclub while extremely intoxicated is normal.”

Bad Online Dates Launches The Boob Experiment: Do Bigger Boobs Really Matter?

Posted by

As a social scientist who’s been investigating the game of love for almost 30 years, Jennifer Kelton, CEO/Founder of Bad Online Dates launches The Boob Experiment to ask singles if “bigger boobs really do matter?” This boob obsession has contributed to Victoria’s Secret spending $12 million and investing almost an entire year planning their upcoming Annual Fashion Show in New York. With the newest tools of social media, and fan engagement, Kelton is excited to bring out some truths and to open up an honest dialogue and genuine conversation on all things regarding boob size on the Bad Online Dates Facebook page and Twitter #boobexperiment.

From Holly Madison insuring her boobs for $1 million to the upcoming Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Nov 29th, Bad Online Dates (http://badonlinedates.com) is launching an online dialog to create fiery water cooler discussions about whether bigger boobs really matter on Facebook and Twitter using #boobexperiment. Both single men and women are asked to share candid opinions to close the communications gap between the sexes on this hot topic. Women are also asked to join the conversation, What has your Push-Up Bra done for you today? As the Author of Don’t Use My Sweater as a Towel, Bad Online Dates CEO Jennifer Kelton has been studying dating behavior for decades as a social scientist and 21st Century Dating Expert. To encourage singles to laugh about bad dates and move forward, Bad Online Dates offers a compassionate community where singles can vent online.

Boobs can significantly impact a woman’s self-esteem, and the media promotes bigger boobs in TV, Print, Radio and all over the web. If someone is flat-chested, the pressure is high to stuff a bra or wear a push-up bra. While some guys say big boobs are must-haves on AskMen.com, it’s encouraging to hear that many men make boobs more important around peers. AskMen.com Contributor Andre Cross shared, “Most of the time men joke around more than anything. Inside, we know what we really want: a pair of nicely shaped and reasonably sized breasts.”

And what about the obsession with boob jobs? While most women will seek plastic surgeons for bigger boobs, some get breast reductions. After rumors that Jessica Simpson wanted breast reduction surgery before the wedding because her DDs make her look heavy, Jessica denied ever thinking about a breast reduction on Twitter. Now that Jessica is pregnant, she tweeted, “My belly is officially bigger than my boobs…Well, kinda. Ha.” With this obsession over bigger boobs, it’s a relief to hear AskMen.com Contributor Andre Cross support women in this personal decision whether to get a boob job by saying, “A woman should never get breast implants to please a man. She’d be doing it for all the wrong reasons. If she does want implants, I hope that she’d be getting them for herself and no one else.”

In the end, you can buy the best bra and be beautiful, and still run into a Bad Date Bear like Bad Date Betty did in two recent Bad Date TV Videos:Bad Date Betty and the Blinged Out Bear, and just released: Bad Date Betty and the Hawaiian Bear Internet Date. With the release of the comedy-drama movie, The Descendants today (Nov 16, 2011), George Clooney plays a dad in Hawaii who seems to have the perfect life. The reality is that The Descendants is all about insecurities for George Clooney and his two daughters who show that stuff happens in paradise. No bra will solve all problems, but it can boost confidence.

After traveling the world, Jennifer Kelton, CEO/Founder Bad Online Dates, observed, “It’s a cultural thing. In some parts of the world, women are topless, and there is no judgment.” Overall, it is perception versus reality that impacts many viewpoints. In the US, the perception is that bigger boobs matter, yet the reality is that boobs are usually not a deciding factor in a long-term relationship. While chemistry is a must-have for every relationship, bigger boobs appear to be optional.

About Jennifer Kelton

Jennifer KeltonI did not wake up one morning and say “hey I think I’d like a man use my sweater like a towel, write a candid dating book, become a dating expert, the CEO and founder of a social dating site and have three blogs.”

All of this has happened in a slow burn and here I am. The good, the bad, the mistakes, way too many tears shed to count, lots of wine and oh my goodness a huge learning curve that leaves me much of the time saying, “I’m sorry but this is all new to me.”
