back to article iPhone users get more sex than Android fans

When it comes to getting laid, put your Blackberry back in your hip holster and don't get caught touching an Android. The iPhone gets results. iPhone users are getting more sex then their counterparts on RIM or Google devices, with women iPhone users getting more action than their male counterparts. Women iPhone users are …

That's funny

I'd associate iPhone users with increased sexual activity, just not the type involving a partner...

Yes - a more suitable headline would be...

iPhone users are the biggest w*nkers. Android and Blackberry users aren't far behind.

Another way to look at it

...is to say that iPhone users enjoy getting screwed.

All this proves is that iPoop owners are bigger liars than Androud and Blackbore users.

Interesting that Symbian users are not listed as we get laid all the time,...... NOT! :)

More partners != more sex

a sexual partner is not necessarily a single-use item

just sluttier

Exactly. This "study" only shows that though iPhones are at less risk for viruses, their users are at a greater risk.

Not sure if this is positive or negative

I wonder what that says about the women who have an iphone?

But anyway, correlation != causation...

Yeah, sure, right.

Head for your nearest bookstore or coffee shop or other wifi gathering place.

The folks more interested in their ::insert mobile device here:: are completely oblivious to the MOTAS in their immediate vicinity.

It would seem that online interaction, even of a sexual nature, is more important than real, honest-to-gawd/ess physical contact.

It's sad, really ... The kids who were born of the Nintendo Generation don't actually understand what it's like to have a RealLife[tm] relationship. Poor bastards.

I thought honest-to-gawd physical contact was what this whole sorry argument was about.

It good be just showiing off

An iPhone buyer may be more interested in having a phone they can show off, no matter what the cost ergo they need to up the amount of sex they appear to be having. It's a mental attitude.

The other phones...realistic individuals who just want a smart phone or have had one forced on them by their company.

Letters, Digits.

That was my thinking - and one small factor in my thinking it is that, although not all iPhone types I've encountered do this, some do habitually include the 'i' when referring to the device in a way that the generic 'phone' would suffice. (eg, "Let me just grab my iPhone before we go..." or "Poo. I've left my iPhone at home...") - I've yet to hear any user of any other type of phone refer to it by brand when a generic reference would suffice.

To my mind, that indicates that these particular people do indeed see it as either a fashion item or status symbol at least as much, if not more so, than as a mobile phone - so it doesn't seem a huge stretch to imagine that they might lie about how many sexual partners they've had.

Especially the blokes - I know, because <checks> yes, I'm a bloke. ;)

My wife has an iPhone and I have a Desire, does this mean she's cheating on me? Should I sue Apple or......

Should ignore this utterly pointless report which I can't believe you even gave the light of day?

Quality vs quantity

As an Android convert I was initially deeply offended, but you know what? It's probably true.

I would also point out that having poor intelligence, blonde hair, big tits and a penchant for Barcardi Breezer will also get you more sex, but those with a bit more nous will realise how disturbingly unsatisfying that sex will be.

Which is how I feel when I use an iPhone. And dirty.

Yep, there's an app. for that

..it's called a 'browser'. For surfing pr0n. When you can't get a bit of "how's your father"

Or, maybe the iPhone's a bit bigger, and when stuffed in a man's trouser pocket...You get the drift.

So what you are telling me is that women with an iPhone do it significantly more than any other category?

"Spot a chick with an iPhone and you're in!"

Yup

Well I'd say this is pretty obvious, no?

Blackberry users are too busy checking their work e-mail and Android users are way too busy posting nerd rage comments and dissing the iPhone to find the time to actually have sex with someone.

im sure the title is wrong

those figures say number of partners not amount of sex

to me it says that andriod users are better at keeping partners so potentially get more nad are better at it as they can keep them satisifed

or that iphone users are drunken fools that fall into bed with anyone

iPhone users are easy

This data doesn't say iPhone users get more sex, it says that they sleep around more. For all we know, the android people might be at it every night, but with the same person. (Not all of them with the same person, obviously).

Not all of them with the same person, obviously?

Going by the report could it be the same iPhone person?

I know headlines are supposed to grab attention, but they should be accurate too and reflect the data in the article. More partners is not the same as more sex.

It doesn't say anything about the amount of rumpy-pumpy actually going on, just the amount of sleeping around (and perhaps prostitute use).

What that graph actually tells you is that Android users are more faithful than those with iPhones.

wrong metric

"number of partners" is a bad metric. I (have a company WinMobile device, that should score negative in sexiness) have only a small number of partners on the scale of the plots (2 in fact).

But i get laid lots. Why waste time flashing your sexy smartphone around in the search of new partners? Why waste time playing with a smartphone's touchscreen where you could be playing with your partner's touch-sensitive areas?

I wonder....

One thing we do know pretty conclusively is that a lot of people lie when taking surveys, and doubly so when taking surveys about their sex lives, for a whole host of complex reasons.

So, could it just be that iPhone users lie more than users of other smartphones, perhaps in a desperate effort to fit in with what they see as societal norms? I merely raise the possibility, is all :-)

Wow

Some of the worst statistical analysis i've seen - and that includes the last 13 years of a crap government!!

Devining a corollary between two disparate pieces of dating and then coming to a conclusion.

Dr. Snow must be spinning in his grave.

The implication of this research being...

...that women with iPhones are slappers?

Or is this another implicit reinforcement of the view that Android users have more geek factor (and hence are less likely to be sucessful with the opposite sex)?

OK, OK I'm going

(Full disclosure - I'm planning on getting an Android phone and I haven't had any in months)

Not quite true...

More partners != more sex.

If El Reg is going to rip apart others for repeating dodgy statistics, then maybe start here too.

Maybe I'm just sensitive because I've got an android....

Official: iPhone users are more likely to get a virus.

Looks more like a survey of promescuity rather than activity.

Perhaps: iPhone responsible for more break ups!

Load of crap

Surely total number of partners isn't relevant? Most of these phones have only been around for a couple of years and how many people bought their phone last week??

You could apply it to anything - models of car, models of fridge freezer, anything.

Yes yes

We all know how accurate statistics about how much one is getting are.

I for one am getting it twice a night 7 nights a week.
