Hardly a week goes by when we don’t see the words “sex,” “scandal,” and “lawyer” arranged together into some irresistible headline. While we love reading about lawyers behaving badly, one thing that continues to stump us is why a group of seemingly intelligent, obviously well-educated professionals appear to have such a knack for getting caught with their pants down.
Just look at national news stories to get an idea of what we’re talking about:
But should these guys have really been caught? We think not. And let’s face it, it’s not easy finding favor once the forbidden is exposed. “92% of Americans said married men or women having an affair is morally wrong.”
So we’ve compiled some tips to help you keep your naughty business private. And before you go calling us sensational, it’s worth noting: Sex happens. A January Bitter Poll concluded that half of you assume that more than 25% of married lawyers are having affairs.
Not to mention the number of reader-submitted questions that keep Ex-Bitter busy dispensing experienced advice on everything from “I Did Coke and Slept with a Paralegal” to “I Made Out with a Married Associate.”
We make no promises these are foolproof, but they’re all steps in the right direction to staying under the radar. Consider this a public service announcement from Bitter Lawyer.
