Just over 80% of singles want to find romantic love, according to the survey.And Millennials, in particular, are starting to feel the press to settle down and marry, with 54% reporting that they feel pressure because they want a family, and 35% feeling pressure to wed in order to keep up with their friends.Millennials especially are unencumbered by fears that may have held people back from having sex in the past, says Helen Fisher a biological anthropologist and chief scientific adviser to Match, who helped develop the representative survey of more than 5,000 singles.“We have a real misunderstanding of Millennials,” she said.“I think they are very career oriented, so sex before the first date could be a sex interview, where they want to know if they want to spend time with this person.”In many ways sex has become a less intimate part of dating, according to Kimberly Resnick Anderson, a certified sex therapist.If you thought sleeping with someone before a first date was a no-go, but texting during a date was OK, think again.
sex can be for emotions, for food, for housing, for comfort — for multiple reasons, so there’s nothing new in that sense,” Garrison says.Three in four single men and 64% of single women reported that they want more adventure in the bedroom. Anderson says many times the key to good sex is just getting into it."Virtually all men report that having an enthusiastic partner is a turn on and that being with a woman who is not embarrassed or shy about her body or her pleasure, but someone who owns their sexuality and celebrates it that is a huge turn," she says."It's not necessarily about being in charge."Take those reins, ladies! Thirty-two percent of single men admitted to sending a picture of their genitals, but 90% of women reported they were unaroused by those NSFW pics.The survey found that Republicans are 48% more likely to have ever cheated, closely followed by those who drink heavily, according to the survey.And Millennials are the most faithful respondents, but hey, maybe they just haven't had as much time to slip up.
