Nearly half of couples who watch Netflix together have "cheated" on each other by watching episodes of a TV show ahead of their partner, according to a new survey by Netflix. Indeed, 63 percent of cheaters say they'd gladly do it more if they knew they'd get away with it, and almost half of those who do the dirty are repeat offenders - once a Netflix cheater always a Netflix cheater.
Eighty percent of cheating isn't planned, with 66 percent of respondents of indicating "the shows are just so good we can't stop binging".
That being said, Netflix says that 46 percent of couples that stream together cheat, but because it's Netflix, that's in regards to TV shows not, uh, other things.
"The most cheaters are in Brazil and Mexico where 57% and 58% of streaming couples have cheated, respectively", the study states.
How do we cheat? According to Netflix, 25% of cheating happens when one partner falls asleep! Half say "sleep cheating" doesn't count (53%), but the morality of "sleep cheating" varies across the globe. Many are still cheating in secret: "45% never admit to their indiscretions".
Have you ever snuck in an episode of you and your partner's favorite show while they were away?
But in Hong Kong, 40-percent say it's worse than having an actual affair...
Cheating comes in many forms. "Four years later, cheating has increased three times and has become a common behavior around the world". The "sorry not sorry" cheater is one that doesn't feel guilty about it, and that makes up around 32 percent.
Have any of you "cheated" on your loved ones and skipped an episode - or several - ahead?
You start watching a series on Netflix with your significant other and you're both really into it.
