A new study has revealed that lawyers are the best people to have affairs with. The poll by Illicit Encounters website asked 2,000 members to see what profession they would most like their lovers to be and found that 27 percent voted for lawyers, with reasons ranging from their outstanding ability to lie, to their attention to detail, the Daily Star reported.

Claire Page, a spokesperson for the controversial company, said the most shocking thing about this research is that lawyers are deemed even better liars than politicians.

Page added that one would think that backbiting, obfuscation, and double-dealing are practically job qualifications for politicians, so for lawyers to be seen as better liars than them, that's quite an achievement.

She added that for some, lawyer stereotypes that they're untrustworthy, deceitful and dishonest may seem like a negative, but it's for these exact reasons that lawyers are fantastic affair material.

The top ten reasons:

1)They're great liars.

2)I think they're too smart to get caught.

3)If they get caught, they can talk their way out of trouble.

4)They're good at creating alibies.

5)They're stressed from their job so they have a lot of tension to release in bed.

6)They're very good at wining and dining.

7)They're very good at organising discrete weekends away.

8)They have long working hours, so if I want to meet late at night, they can make a believable excuse to their spouse.

9)They have attention to detail which makes them better in bed.

10) If my partner finds out and leaves me, I have someone to take care of the divorce!
