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!
