Match.com Releases Singleton Sex Survey, Reports 'Smart, Funny & Hot' As Most Wanted (Duh)
You'd Be Smiling Too...
Online dating factory Match.com has gone Kinsey with today's partial release of the results of their second annual Singles In America study.
This comprehensive survey of single men and women, (who, according to Match, make up a third of the adult population in the United States, so don't feel so bad about your solo ass), was done in association with biological anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher, sex and relationship therapist Dr. Laura Berman, and a few other science-type people with important sounding titles.
Among their findings:
Republicans Love, Hate Sex: "Conservative Republicans are significantly more likely than other groups to be very satisfied with sex while they're married. But they also had the least amount of sexual activity in the last 12 months."
Grandma, is everything okay in there?:"Singles over 60 are more likely than any other age group to achieve orgasm -- a thrilling 91-100% of the time!"
It's true! Old people have sex - and studies say it might be more satisfying than yours!
Dudes Dig PDA:"Men are more likely to show their love and affection in public. 41% of men would be very comfortable kissing in public, versus 31% of women."
Online dating. Hooray?
Everyone Loves a Smart, Funny Hot Person:Gays and lesbians are attracted to the same qualities in a partner as heterosexuals. Mutually appeasing traits include similar levels of education, successful careers, physical attraction, sense of humor, and confidence.
He Loves You For Your Personality...No, Really: "Men are more likely than women to be willing to make a commitment to someone who has everything they are looking for in a partner, but don't find sexually attractive (26% of men and 22% of women)."
