Your Partner Is Almost Definitely Cheating On You (With Netflix)

45 per cent of Aussies are dirty, dirty cheaters. Not only in the bedroom, but in the loungeroom, while they are on the Xbox, on their smartphone at the gym, on the way to work on the train.

The nature of this betrayal is deep, long lasting, and is damaging relationships. I’m sorry to be the one to break this to you.

Your partner is likely to be sneaking episodes of that series you’re watching together without you.

In the latest survey from Netflix 45 per cent admitting to jumping way ahead in American Horror Story, House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, Narcos, and Black Mirror (the most popular), and 41 per cent say they are serial offenders – doing the deed three or even more times. While you are sleeping, most likely (25 per cent).

47 per cent even think it’s no big deal, despite 61 per cent keeping it from their partner. If you do get a confession out of them though, they’ll likely say “I didn’t mean to”. 80 per cent of those surveyed said they didn’t plan to cheat.

Australia isn’t exactly the worst for it though Brazil and Mexico come in at joint number one in the “worst cheaters” ranks at 58 per cent. The most loyal Netflix partners are in the Netherlands, where 73 per cent keep their Netflix in their damn pants until it is couple time.
