WHETHER it’s a bottle of perfume or a brand new handbag, many of us will be hoping to find a present with our name on it under the tree this Christmas.
But being showered with luxurious gifts is the every day reality for self-confessed mistress Gweneth Lee, who has received everything from a £25k Cartier bracelet to a swish brand new car from the millionaire cheaters she hooks up with.
The 54-year-old super-mistress, who lives in Palm Springs, California but regularly travels to London, has been exclusively dating married men since 2008, when she joined Illicit Encounters dating site.
Since then, she’s slept with more than 1,000 married men and lives a lavish globetrotting lifestyle funded by unfaithful husbands.
Speaking to Fabulous Digital, Gweneth, whose longest liaison has lasted 10 years, says: “Cartier, Tiffany, fur coats…I’m not a bragger or a boaster, but I do have a lot of stunningly beautiful jewellery from these men.
“I have a beautiful £25k Cartier bracelet that’s platinum and is encrusted with diamonds.

“This particular gentleman went to Harrods and gave it to me as a birthday present. He said we’d had a fight which I hadn’t even realised…and then he gave it to me to say ‘sorry.’ I thought, ‘this needs to happen more often!’
A Honda Accord for £25k
“I’ve also been given a beautiful Honda Accord, which in America is one of the number one cars because they’re so reliant and consistent – they’re around £25k, it’s beautiful.”
But while people may assume Gweneth is a gold digger, she insists this label couldn’t be for the truth – adding that she “never asks” for any of the luxurious presents she’s gifted throughout the year.
However, when it comes to Christmas, she admits she does have a wish list.
“I got a fur coat via Fedex one Christmas but I tend to be sent on spa days or overnight stays at hotels where you just drink champagne,” she says.
“I just put up my ‘Wishtender’ where I’ve asked for a whole bunch of clothing, jewellery from Tiffany and I want a new Breitling watch to do triathlons.
“A lot of the men are looking for ease and comfort so if they get a Wishtender or a Harrods or Selfridges list, they just click on it and the gift ships straight to my house.
“It takes them five minutes and they look like a king!”
The men just use their credit cards
Gweneth continues: “They just put it on their credit cards anyway and the secretary manages their bank accounts so as long as the secretary and the wives aren’t best friends, the secretary doesn’t even know where it goes.”
With her birthday also being in November, the super mistress says that between now and Christmas, she “gets random stuff” sent to her “all the time.”
“Just this morning someone sent me £1,000 and said ‘you’re so fun, thank you – I hope you have a great birthday!'”
If someone said would you rather have a piece of jewellery or a piece of art, I’d probably say art.
You’ve got ten fingers and two wrists – to wear every piece of jewellery at the same time is a bit classless!
Along with materialistic items such as fine jewellery, Gweneth also enjoys a lavish globetrotting lifestyle.
“For a long time I had a lover who would send a jet for me,” she recalls.
“It’d have my favourite champagne, salmon and everything ready for me on the plane.
“I’ve had guys invite me on their boats and we’ve just spent a week hanging out.”
So far, she’s enjoyed a trip on a luxury yacht in St Tropez with a jeweller, has been whisked away to Las Vegas with a tech investor, lapped up the high life in Bali with a stockbroker and relaxed in Tulum, Mexico, with a City worker.
But according to Gweneth, who began having affairs with married men after her husband, Robert, passed away from cancer, there’s one thing that she prefers above anything else – art work.
“I collect art,” she says. “I’ve had men buy me art at auctions….I have a very large house now with very big walls so I can put it all up.
“If someone said would you rather have a piece of jewellery or a piece of art, I’d probably say art.
“You’ve got ten fingers and two wrists – to wear every piece of jewellery at the same time is a bit classless!”
Among her string of lovers, whom she has two or three on the go at any one time, Gweneth has bedded a successful jeweller, a stockbroker, a technology firm boss and even an astronaut.
She explains: “A lot of them are pro-athletes which is nice because they’re so fit, there’s men in finance, lawyers – it really varies.
“You can the odd bitcoin guys too, there’s indie filmmakers, authors, tennis players.”
While Gweneth has enjoyed a steamy liaison with a racing car driver in his mid-twenties, she’s also hooked up with more mature gentleman in his 80s – but says that it depends on their health and fitness.
“Why is a woman going to waste her time on a man who can’t perform?” she asks.
“Intelligence, sophistication and lifestyle goes a long way.”
But far from being riddled by guilty, Gweneth, who says she’s polyamorous by nature, isn’t phased by the wives that are totally oblivious at home.
Previously she slammed a wife who suspected her.
“She need not have worried — there is no way I’d have gone for her man. I think about the people who criticise me and wonder: “Are you happy at home watching This Morning? Or don’t you crave excitement, like me?”
I’ve had a few wives who have reached out and I tend to just play dumb
“I’ve had a few wives who have reached out and I tend to just play dumb,” she says.
“If they do reach out and find my phone number, they tend to not be mad at me…they tend to ask why.
“You can’t really blame me – I’m not out their husband hunting.
“I’m on websites for married people so their husband put himself on the website to meet me – they’re the ones advertising for it.”
She continues: “Marriage is a slippery slope.
“I hate to blame anyone 100% for anything but life has its ways and it happens to men as often as it does women.
“Women go through the change and they lose interest.
Her oldest suitor? He’s in his 80s
“But marriage is also hard work…how could a woman possibly be a breadwinner, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a caregiver and also be a porn star at home? It’s not her fault – there’s a lot of pressure!”
She goes on to say that a lot of men that she sees in their 60s and 70s have wives who are unwell because of illness, such as dementia or cancer.
“I have several men I’ve had affairs with and their wives are in various states of dementia…she doesn’t know his name, she can’t even bathe or feed herself any more. Is that his fault he seeks sex out of the house? No, it’s illness,” she says.
“Nobody talks about it but that’s the reality.”
The life coach, who is monogamous when she dates, says any potential suitor would never have a problem with her life choices.
“He would have to be a ridiculous man to have an issue with it – I mean, who can judge?” she says.
“I find it quite challenging that people can judge because look at yourself, and look in the mirror – can anybody really judge anybody else?”
And if she was to find that a future husband was having an affair, Gweneth says: “I’d say ‘don’t come home with a disease and if you do, we’re going to have a serious talk…and by the way….I want a new car!'”
