A woman who receives ‘guilt gifts’ from her collection of wealthy married lovers every Valentine’s day, brags that she’s given up to £10,000 each year.
Hayley Leeanna, 37, from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, is lavished with gold jewellery, designer watches and expensive sunshine breaks in exotic locations by her harem of cheating partners.
She cashes in during the run up to February 14th, because her collection of lovers – who she’s met on a dating website for married people – feel guilty about ditching her for their wives for the annual celebration.
Among the ‘extra special’ gifts that she has received in recent years is a £3,000 gold chain from American department store Macy’s, bought by a married investor she has been seeing for three years.
Hayley has also been gifted with a gold and amethyst musical note pendant costing £750, a gift from a married stockbroker lover, in addition to a £300 Dolce & Gabbana watch and a £560 gold Gucci watch paid for by a rich businessman she was dating.
And she’s shared beach pictures from a pre-Valentine’s break in Thailand with a businessman who has made a fortune investing in the luxury beach retreats in the Far East.
Hayley said: ‘Valentine’s is a great time to be a mistress because you can make a fortune with the gorgeous gifts.
‘I get the very best jewellery, watches and always ensure that I get a bit of winter sun in the run-up to February on a free break with one of my wealthy lovers.
‘Married men are always a little more generous at this time of year because they feel guilty about abandoning their mistresses on Valentine’s, when they know they will have to be with their wives.
‘I don’t mind at all, because the last thing I want them to do is break up with their wives. I like being a bit on the side. You are treated much better that way and the gifts are more expensive.’
The fitness enthusiast meets her lovers on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people.
She continued: ‘Valentine’s is my favourite time of year – it’s when I replenish my jewellery drawer, get a new designer watch and get away to the sun when it is wet and cold.
‘I have been seeing the investor, who bought the gold chain, on and off for the last three years. He is in New York a lot for business which is where he bought the gorgeous gold chain. I see him once a month in London. We meet for dinner and then normally go to a hotel for sex.
‘We have a nice tradition of him spoiling me at Valentine’s. I always get a beautifully wrapped little box at the start of our date. It is always jewellery.
‘His wife lives in the Home Counties and he stays in London hotels a lot because he works long hours. It provides a perfect cover for his affairs.
‘The musical note pendant is from a stockbroker lover who has a largely sexless marriage with his wife. She lost interest years ago and turns a blind eye to his affairs.
‘I know I am not his only lover and I’m cool with that. It’s not as if I am exclusive with him.
‘The Thai break was to Phuket with a businessman who has made a lot of money investing in wellness retreats right across the Far East.
‘He spends most of the winter travelling out to his various retreats to check they are well run and normally brings a lover along with him for the ride.
‘He is separated from his wife, but still uses IllicitEncounters because he says that the woman are low maintenance and that suits his circumstances. He is one of the wealthiest men on the site and is worth several million.
‘He likes to make love on the beach with the waves lapping on our toes. It’s a lovely thing to do at night after a romantic meal. We always fly first class so the breaks must cost him an absolute fortune.
‘I also see a businessman every few months who loves watches. He always has a huge new timepiece on his wrist and loves to pick his favourite female watches for me. Last year, I got a very bling D&G watch which I adore, and this year he gave me a more elegant gold one from Gucci, which is pretty special.’
Hayley insists all her married lovers were cheating on their wives long before she came along.
She added: ‘I only use IllicitEncounters because it is site for dyed-in-the-wool cheats who find it impossible to stay faithful to one partner – whether they are male or female.
‘I would hate the idea that I was breaking up anyone’s marriage, but that is definitely not the case.
‘Most of the guys have an understanding with their wives. A lot of women cheat on the site too after doing a deal with their husbands. It is usually to do with mismatched sex drives.’
Jessica Leoni who is a sex and relationship expert at IllicitEncounters.com said: ‘Valentine’s Day is a great time to be on an extra-marital dating site.
‘Our research shows that cheats spend 50 per cent more on gifts for their lovers than they do for their wives.
‘The typical spend on a mistress is around £150 whereas the average spend on regular partner is £100. Obviously in cases like Hayley’s they spend a lot more.’
