Is a wife's affair with her yoga instructor a 2009 update of the long-established trend of husbands cheating with their nannies? In this week's Grazia we speak to the women who've discovered that get getting hot and heavy in the gym swiftly leads to getting hot and heavy in the bedroom. As one Hertfordshire housewife puts it, "You're paying these men to make you feel good, inside and out. And what makes you feel better than passionate, no-strings sex with the hot Pilates instructor?"
For bored, neglected and - above all - wealthy city wives, the allure of an affair where they wield the purse-strings is obvious. And nobody understands this more than Josh Salzmann, a fitness guru who has worked with both the Duchess of York and Angelina Jolie. "These affairs happen a lot, " agrees Josh. "If you're working in this industry and have no scruples, you can run riot. " But just who is using who - is this a case of wealthy wives having sex on their own terms, or vulnerable, emotionally-neglected women succumbing to the attentions of unscrupulous 25-year-olds? And are the men involved savvy businessmen enjoying the perks of the job, or do they risk devaluing their profession and feeling used?
