On Thursday morning, the hosts of an Australian radio show invited listeners to call in if they suspected their partners of cheating.

According to CNN, Ashley Madison's parent company Avid Life Media made $US115.5 million in revenue in 2014.Ashley Madison never promised men that they would find women , but they did promise that real women inhabited the site and were active there.To email women, men have to pay extra, and then they have to pay more still if they want to send a "gift" of a silly gif or picture.Using the site as a man is a little bit like playing Farmville, except instead of blowing your money on fake cow upgrades, you're blowing it on messages to fake women.Ashley Madison say their members come from all walks of life and include singles, those attached and seeking an affair, or attached in an open relationship.
