WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Washington, D.C., may be the best place to have an affair, says the founder of an online dating service for people in relationships.

"The more successful you are, the more prone to cheating you are … and Washington is full of successful people looking for something outside their marriage," Noel Biderman, chief executive officer and founder of AshleyMadison.com, told the New York Daily News.

Powerful men and women, especially those in politics, "are massive risk-takers," Biderman said, and some are "willing to transfer that to risk-taking to their personal lives."

The Web site says it has nearly 38,000 members in the nation's capital, the most per-capita among its 13 million users, the newspaper said Saturday.

The city outranked San Antonio, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Oklahoma City, Pittsburgh, Boston, Chicago, Dallas and Orlando as the top spot for affairs, based on the number of registered users in each city as a percentage of the total population.
