New Study Says That People Who Use Emojis Have A LOT More Sex
And here I thought that using emojis when texting chicks was looked down upon. Guess not, according to this new study by Match.com.
According to Match.com’s annual Singles in America survey, a poll of 5,675 singles, people who have more sex, tend to use emojis more often.
“It turns out that 54% of emoji users had sex in 2014 compared to 31% of singles who did not,” Dr. Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist at Rutgers University who helped lead the study, tells TIME.
Oh, but that number is just slanted because of millenials, right? Nope, the stats were pretty much the same for men and women in their 20s, 30s and 40s.
So why do people who use emojis see more action in the bedroom?
“[Emoji users] want to give their texts more personality,” says Fisher. “Here we have a new technology that absolutely jeopardizes your ability to express your emotion… there is no more subtle inflection of the voice … and so we have created another way to express emotions and that is the emoji.”
“Emoji users don’t just have more sex, they go on more dates and they are two times more likely to want to get married,” Fisher says.
But here’s the best part…
And, food for thought, women who use kiss-related emojis have an easier time achieving orgasms with a familiar partner. That may be because emoji users cared more about finding partners who consider communication a desirable trait.
So you know what to do now…
