A nightclub manager from the Jura has set up a new internet dating site for adulterers.

The site is to be directed at an ever-growing market of individuals seeking extra-marital affairs.

“Other dating sites exist, but they are pretty quiet on the issue of infidelity and sex,” 28-year-old Cindy Leuenberger told online news site Le Matin.

“With us, things are clear!” said the nightclub manager from Saignelégier.

Leuenberger, who set up the site up with her brother, predicts success for the business since “sex sells” and infidelity is no longer the taboo it once was.

But not everyone in the primarily Catholic canton has warmed to the initiative.

“The remarks of some people I met from Saignelégier were quite negative, even nasty, although others were more positive. People are free to register or not,” she said.

The local abbot has admitted to being surprised by the launch of the site.

“It is clear that our official position is to say that people should respect the morals and values that we preach, which is not this,” Abbot Nino Franza told Le Matin.

The site, called SwissInfidelity.ch, promises complete discretion and free membership for women. It already has over 1,000 members.

The US equivalent website, Gleeden, has over 1.3 million users, 40,000 of which are Swiss, the website reported.

Pupils suspended after evaluating teachers online

A school in Morges, in the canton of Vaud, has suspended three students after they created a website for pupils to publicly assess their teachers’ performance.

According to daily Le Matin, the trio had no idea they would get in hot water when they launched the site and thought it would be a useful tool for the public.

Speaking to the paper, pupil Nathan Ganser, who founded the site with two friends, said: “Teachers assess their students, so this project was an opportunity for us to do the same.”

Less than two days after they started the site, 600 out of the school’s 1,300 pupils had posted their opinions on their teachers, and the trio had received support from many students and even some parents, said the paper.

They even wanted to extend the site to other schools.

But teachers were not impressed, and have suspended the trio for three weeks.

“Students do not have the authority to evaluate their teachers,” the school’s head Véronique Mariani told Le Matin, adding that they “ignored warnings”.

The president of a headteachers’ association in Vaud, Francoise Emmanuelle Nicolet, agreed with the school’s stance.

“The content of the site doesn’t meet legal standards,” she said, adding that the public nature of the site could lead to teachers’ images being tainted or even their disqualification.
