Not so conservative, then… Republicans are 40 per cent more likely to have good sex, claims survey (but they don't have nearly as much of it)
A survey of over 5,000 American singles has revealed that Republicans have a better time in the bedroom than their Liberal counterparts.
Match.com's Singles in America poll revealed that although conservatives have less sex than Democrats, they climax almost every time, compared to just 40 per cent of the time for Democrats.
The reason behind this, the online dating giant reveals, is because it is not just their Republican politics that are conservative.
Look of love: Republicans are far more likely to be happy with marital sex, says a study. This may explain Mitt and Ann Romney's show of affection yesterday
When choosing a partner, supporters of
the GOP showed a pattern of looking for people of a similar
socio-political background who believe in marriage.
Liberals on the other hand prioritised a sense of humour, individuality and equality in their relationships.

Results of the annual survey of 5,000 people also showed that, contrary to society's stereotyping, men are just as likely to fall in love as women and believe that a marriage should last forever.
In fact only 3per cent of the surveyed males admitted to wanting to date multiple partners.

their feelings for the sake of commitment.
31per cent admitted they would consider marrying someone who 'has
everything they are looking for in a partner' but with whom they weren't
in love, and 21per cent went even further confessing that they would
commit to someone they weren't sexually attracted to.

HOW RISE OF ONLINE DATING MEANS MORE PEOPLE THAN EVER WILL HAVE SEX ON A FIRST DATE
Breaking The Rules: 55per cent of singles have had sex on a first date
Cult dating guide The Rules stipulates that couples shouldn't have sex
until they have been on at least three dates. But over half of
Americans, it seems,are not prepared to wait that long.
A new study has revealed that 55per cent of singles have had sex on a first date.
The findings, from Match.com's Singles in America survey revealed that
66per cent of men and 44per cent of women had gone to bed with a date
at the end of the first meeting
The fact that people are prepared to get intimate so early is a symptom
of internet dating, reveals Chicago sex therapist, Laura Berman.
She told USA Today that because people can exchange personal information
and flirt online, they already feel like they know each other by the
time they meet face-to-face for the first time.
She explained: 'It's almost as if by the time they’ve had the first
physical date, it might have been the equivalent of three dates.
'I think this online sharing has definitely escalated some of this
familiarity and quickness in which people get into sexual scenarios.'
Stanford researcher Michael Rosenfeld added that the results could be
misleading because they don't necessarily mean that participants are
sleeping with every first date.
'It could be a small portion of all first dates that end up in sex,' he explained.
A quarter of those polled said they typically have sex within the first three dates.
A quarter wait until their partner is ready, and just under a fifth will
wait until they agree that they are in an exclusive relationship.
Thirteen per cent say they will wait until marriage to have sex.
