A New study by the online dating site OkCupid.com aimed to take a deeper look at what some people think about sex. Instead of just asking users how many would prefer more sex, OKCupid’s researchers wanted to dig a little deeper.

The study, which featured 10 charts about sex, measured such things as a woman’s difficulty achieving an orgasm, how many people prefer rough sex versus gentle sex, the self-confidence and sex drive of skinny women and curvy women, and how often people masturbate.

While I read through the graphs, a few interesting things jumped out.

Even though self-identified “thin” women are more confident than their peers overall, “curvy” girls love to have sex. According to OKCupid’s dynamic (it moves!) chart, “curvy” women are more self-conscious than their self-identified “skinny” counterparts until they hit 29. At 29, the curvy girls experience a self-confidence boost, becoming even more confident than their skinny cohorts, and their sex drive kicks into overdrive.

Another interesting find? Twitter may be bad for your relationship. According to OKCupid’s research, people who tweet religiously have shorter relationships.

“Frequent tweeters have shorter real-life relationships than everyone else, probably via some bit.ly hack. Unfortunately, we have no way to tell who’s dumping who here; whether the twitterati are more annoying or just more flighty than everyone else.”

What do you think of OKCupid’s research? Is Twitter bad for relationships? Do curvy girls love sex more than their skinny counterparts? Let’s discuss!

    I think twitter can have an impact on a relationship because of the twitter tune out and the “honesty”/facade that is displayed on twitter I am convinced that people have a social network personality that does not match up to their real life personality…

      Agreed. Also there’s a certain narcissism that goes with tweeting everything you do to a world that caters exclusively to your mediocre and otherwise mundane lifestyle.

    It really depends on how you use twitter. If you are there for business it may not be a problem. A lot of people are there for shits and giggles like myself. Twitter lets people be more open with their thoughts and that’s when things can get tricky. If you read something ignorant your s/o says and you didn’t know they felt that way it can cause problems. You have to have good communication in your relationship regardless and maybe have certain boundaries of your online activity if it makes the other uncomfortable.

    People tend to live two different lives on Twitter. There’s the Timeline life; where everyone can see (if your account isn’t private, which is a subject of its own) what you’re saying and who’s saying what back to you. And then there’s the DM life; where people REALLY say what they want. Trust is a major factor when dealing with social networking sites. Also, who your spouse decides to “follow” might be an issue as well.

  • Interesting!!

    I don’t twitter that much, normally during breaks at work and maybe a few times over the weekend..if that! But I think it can definitely be bad for a relationship but only if the persons involved are petty and immature. Twitter can’t mess up your relationship but you can allow twitter to mess up your relationship.
