Being single isn’t easy, and things certainly get more complicated when it comes to the bedroom. Having sex with a new partner can certainly be nerve-wracking, but according to a new poll, most people really are looking for something kinda simple.
Match.com just released a huge study on singles in America, and when it comes to the bedroom, most people just want to know that someone cares. Overall, 83% of singles say the key to good sex is having a caring and enthusiastic partner. Other keys to good sex include communication (78%), being a good kisser (76%) and achieving orgasm (74%).
As for what constitutes bad sex, 74% say it’s having no passion, while 63% mentioned little movement, and 62% hate bad kissing.
And you may think all the young folks are having the best sex out there, but it turns out things get better with age. The survey finds that single women are having the bet sex at age 66, while men are having it at 64. You go grandma!
Other findings from the survey include:
- 55% of singles have been in a “Friends with Benefits” relationship and 45% have had one turn into a committed relationship.
- Half of singles approve of just a peck on the cheek while on the first date and 64% of singles are okay with kissing.
- 40% of singles have dated more than one person at a time, with Gen Xers 129% more likely and Boomers 224% more likely than Millennials to have done so.
- Checking your phone regularly during a first date is the biggest turn off for women, with only 10% thinking it’s appropriate, while 20% of men think it’s okay.
