Study Finds Using Emojis Lead to More Sex
Confused as to why you’re alone on a Saturday night? Match.com has the answer for the lack of spice in your sex life. According to a survey done by the dating website, those who use emojis when texting have more sex.
Now you might wonder how using emojis would help your sex life at all. Why not red wine and some oysters? According to Dr. Helen Fisher, the woman who led the study and a biological anthropologist at Rutgers University, the use of emojis express emotions more easily. Therefore, those who use the funny symbols get more dates and most importantly, more sex.
In this study that polled 5,675 singles in America, “it turns out that 54% of emoji users had sex in 2014 compared to 31% of singles who did not,” Fisher told TIME Magazine. “[Emoji users] want to give their texts more personality… Here we have a new technology that absolutely jeopardizes your ability to express your emotion, there is no more sutble inflection of voice, so we have created another way to express emotions and that is the emoji.”
One more helpful dating tip – women who use the kissing emoji are more likely to achieve orgasms with their partners. One can only imagine what a wink face would achieve.
Eggplant emoji users rejoice! There is hope for you now more than ever.
