(Newser) – Ashley Madison—the website bearing the tagline "Life is Short. Have an Affair"—has released its ranking of the top 10 US cities for cheaters. It drew its conclusions from its own subscriber base, looking at which cities had the most registered users and, based on its population, the highest per capita membership. The, er, winner? Washington, DC, is king when it comes to would-be adulterers, with some 37,943 registered users and the highest per capita stats—and 30 new subscribers per day, reports the Post.

Why DC? CEO Noel Biderman theorizes, "Simply put, 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." Rounding out the top 10:

  1. San Antonio
  2. Phoenix
  3. Salt Lake City
  4. Oklahoma City
  5. Pittsburgh
  6. Boston
  7. Chicago
  8. Dallas
  9. Orlando

Washington, DC, has a lot of Ashley Madison members.
