Wow: Ashley Madison.
In addition to sounding like the stage name of a 19 year old porn star, the whole premise of this Android app, as epitomized by its tagline, is utterly antithetical to what we do here at LOVINGwithPOWER.
Ashley Madison: Life is short. Have an affair.
LOVINGwithPOWER: Life is short. Let the marriage you’re in be the path to everything else you want in life.
“Ashley Madison for Android: A bad app for doing bad things
By Phil Nickinson 23 Dec 2011 2:13 pm
It’s tough to listen to satellite radio these days without hearing an advertisement for Ashley Madison, an online community that boasts having more than 12 million anonymous members looking for some degree of companionship. The difference between Ashley Madison and other dating sites is it openly caters to people looking to have discreet affairs.
I’m happily married, and having an affair with someone online isn’t exactly on my agenda anytime soon, much to the relief of my wife and kids. But I also can’t escape those damn commercials. And since Ashley Madison has an Android application, I figured it was in my professional duty to check it out. A few thoughts, after the break.
So a few thoughts on the Ashley Madison app, in no apparent order:
Damn, it must be lonely out there. I was never good at dating. Not sure things is going to make things easier on anyone.
To me, the urge for more excitement, sensation, and passion can always be turned, fruitfully, toward your partner. It may take time to grow together into the next chapter of your relationship, but the rewards are hot on so many levels. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
