Results were tallied by USA Today according to membership per capita to the online affair service AshleyMadison.com, whose slogan "Life is short. Have an affair" has caught the eyes of media outlets across the country and has signed on more than 14 million anonymous users around the world.
In Phoenix, 51,318 men and women use the website to connect through online photos, messages, chat sessions, and "virtual gifts."
Other top ranking cities include: 2. Glendale 3. Peoria 4. El Mirage 5. Fountain Hills 6. Paradise Valley 7. Tempe 8. Surprise 9. Goodyear 10. Carefree
