Politics, politics, politics. That’s all anyone can think about these days, isn’t it? And because sex and politics go together like scandals and lies, SKYN Condoms got in on the action with SKYN Condoms Millennial Sex Survey. What they found, to no one’s surprise, is that for whom you vote actually says quite a bit about your sex life.
The 2016 Millennial Sex Survey Election Edition by SKYN Condoms examined the sex lives of 5,741 sexually active women and men, between the ages of 18 and 34. They asked not just about things like condom use, where people prefer to do it, but kinky stuff, too, like sexual fantasies and which party members are more likely to have had a threesome.
As we gear up for the second presidential debate on Sunday October 9, one that is probably going to be just as entertaining as the last and just as perfect for a drinking game, how the night will end is anyone’s guess. What this means is that after a couple rounds of drinking every time Hillary Clinton gleefully smirks or Donald Trump makes up a word, you could find yourself hooking up with the “enemy” you met at some bar. If that’s the case, you want to be prepared. So here’s what they found about sexual habits and political affiliation.
1. Democrats Are More Likely To Use Condoms
When it comes to “wrapping it up,” as they say, Democrats win. While 60 percent of Democrats use condoms, only 46 percent of Republicans use them. Come on, people!
2. Both Democrats And Republicans Like Their Fair Share Of Role-Playing
I realize that Democrats tend to think that Republicans are stuffy and Republicans tend to think that Democrats are free-wheelin’ sex fiends, the truth is that we’re actually not all that different. Why? Um, because we’re all human and human beings like sex. Human beings also like fantasies and role-playing. So while Democrats prefer to play the stranger game with their partner, those on the other side of the political spectrum can be found playing out stripper scenes behind closed doors.
3. Both Democrats And Republicans Are All For One-Night Stands
Based on SKYN Condom’s research, the majority of Millennial Democrats, at 64 percent, have had a one-night stand. While the percentage for Republicans is a little bit lower, at 56 percent, it still proves that Millennials, no matter how they vote, know that there’s nothing quite like a one-night stand to scratch a pesky itch.
4. Over 30 Percent Of Democrats Have Had A Threesome
While only 23 percent of Republicans can say they’ve had a “ménage à trois,” 31 percent of Democrats can say that they’ve gone down that road. Which may or may not be a good thing — when it comes to threesomes, expectations and reality don't always align.
5. Republicans Are Big Fans Of Having Sex Outside The Bedroom
Although the survey didn’t give an exact percentage, it did find that Republicans are more likely than Democrats to have sex in places other than the bedroom, including, but not limited to: pools, cars, parks, planes, the beach, and even — gasp! — church.
6. One-Third Of The Three Major Parties Report Having A ‘Bigger Than Average’ Penis
The survey found that 33 percent of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents all claim to have a penis that’s bigger than average. Honestly, I’m surprised that that percentage isn’t bigger.
