And she strayed for the first time at the office festive bash two years ago – just before the pandemic arrived.
That made her realise she loved the thrill of illicit sex and she has had four further affairs since then.
Claire said: “Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I loved to party and get a bit flirty under the mistletoe. My first Christmas fling changed my life and gave me a strong desire for forbidden sex.
“Our office Christmas bash is back this year after a break for Covid 12 months ago. Everyone is excited about getting together and I will definitely be as racy as ever. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Claire had got bored of sex with her boyfriend of three years before cheating for the first time at the work do in 2019.
She said: “Sex was great at first but it tailed off after the first year and we got into this routine of the Sunday morning bonk.

“Sex was once a week – same time, same position, same duration. Sex is like food – eat the same meal every day and you soon get bored of it.
“I loved my boyfriend and we had just bought a house together so I didn’t want to leave him, but I also didn’t want to settle for a rubbish sex life.”
Claire had always had a flirty relationship with a colleague at work and that developed into a fling at the office Christmas party two years ago.
She said: “We had been flirting all night as the drinks flowed and towards the end of the party he asked if I wanted to get some air.
“We went outside and were all over each other. We nearly had sex on a bench near the hotel where the party was being held but eventually went back to his place.
“It was the first time I had cheated and it was incredibly exciting. It made me realise I had to break out of the sex rut I was in with my boyfriend.”
Claire was wary of getting more heavily involved with her workmate and cooled things after their night of passion because she knew both their careers would suffer if the affair was discovered.
Instead she turned to IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading affairs site.
She said: “I wasn’t looking for a new partner – just some discreet affairs with people in a similar position to me.
“I have had four affairs over the last two years and I like the excitement you get from meeting someone new and sleeping with them for the first time.
“I feel like I am discovering the joy of sex again for a second time.”
Claire’s first fling happened last summer when the covid restrictions first started to ease.
She said: “It was with a financial director who lived near me and was stuck in a sexless marriage. We would meet up and go for long walks in hills near our homes and combine sex with a picnic. It fizzled out because we both wanted to see other people.”
Claire has had three flings this year since double vaccinations have made it safer to sleep with strangers.
She said: “I have been having the time of my life. I feel like a teenager again and I will carry on having affairs.
“My boyfriend knows that I like sex more than him and I think he suspects that I am up to no good but he doesn’t like to ask too many questions. I think he is scared that I will leave him.
“I am really looking forward to the office bash, too. I might end up with somebody but only if they are not interested in anything serious.”
