Have you ever wondered what those rich folks in Pac Heights do with all that extra money lying around? Apparently, they are lavishing diamonds on every hottie who isn't their spouse.

According to new stats released today, San Francisco is a great place to have an extramarital affair, especially in the wealthy enclaves of the city, where you are most likely to find a cheating spouse.

You know who you are, even if your wife doesn't., a website that helps married users find partners other than their spouses (its slogan is "life is short, have an affair") revealed that some 68,980 San Franciscans are registered with the infidelity site, proving that this polyamorous city is a great place to have multiple hookups outside the home.

Using that data, the site's CEO was able to crunch some numbers and determine where exactly in San Francisco all these cheaters live, with Pacific Heights coming in at No.1, followed by the Financial District and the Marina -- all neighborhoods where people can easily afford more than one partner.

Ironically enough, at the bottom of the list was North Beach, home to strippers and more strippers, followed by the Lower Haight, where apparently post-punk rockers would rather be bohemians than adulterers.

Here are the top 10 neighborhoods:


According to the cheating service, 46.3 percent of S.F. women registered with the service are actually married; that means that 57 percent of women using the site in the city are single yet looking to have affairs specifically with married men.

Other interesting facts:

  • a high percentage of single men and women in the IT profession are using the service

  • a high percentage of women are specifically looking for a sugar daddy

  • The Mission District has the most affair partners

  • The Marina has the youngest crop of cheaters

  • Pacific Heights has the most female users of the service.

Well, this news certainly puts a whole new spin on the famous phrase "San Francisco treat."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
