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 …

    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.

    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. ;)

    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.

    "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).

    Where to start?

    I realise that this is just some marketing puffery for an Internet dating site and not some peer-reviewed sociological research, but even so ...

    1) This is based on users of said site, hardly a representative sample.

    2) The headline should read: iPhone users (claim to) have more sexual *partners* - which may or may not equate to more sex.

    3) And is based on number of partners by age 30 - whereas ownership of an iPhone can't possibly have extended over more than 3 years, and given the rate at which sales have been increasing, I'd guess the average is more like 12 months.

    The only remarkable thing is that women are reporting more sexual partners than men, whereas almost every serious study shows the reverse result. Possibly this indicates tat the women who sign up for such sites are even more weird than the men that do ...

    Bullshit

    The "study", if we can call it that, measured the number of sexual partners NOT the frequency of sexual activity. More serious studies have shown that people in couples get more action than singles - if we can assume a certain delay between rupture with one partner and finding another then the more partners you've had, the less time you've spent in a relationship and thus the less sex you've had !! So the "study" would seem to show the opposite of what you suggest.

    If anything this study shows that single women with iPhones on dating sites are more likely to drop their knickers and could thus be described as more slutty.

    Brain damaged or what?

    For a second I thought this b*llshit was spouted by phones4u again. No, it's OKCupid. I see. So you've just wasted 5 mins of my life on article thats pure crap.

      Why do you let your obvious feelings of inferiority towards us British get the better of you so often?

      You really are a pathetic little attempt at a man, aren't you?

      Don't blame Reg; they got it from CNET (USA)

      And CNET drew the same asinine conclusion:

      "Study: iPhone grippers have more sex than Android clutchers"

        No we didn't!

        The source for this silly survey released in the silly season is OK Cupid, not CNET.

          Then you independently parrotted CNET's and OK Cupid's' unfounded inference?

          that more partners = more sex? Though CNET readers had pointed out the fallacy? The more's the shame.

    And who do you believe

    Or perhaps it's more of a case of Iphone users are more willing to "say" they have sex more regularly because in actual fact they are sad, lonely fanboys. Whereas Android users don't give 2 hoots about some report and just tell the truth.

    Then again...

    Maybe what this means is, if you have an iPhone, you spend so much time playing with it, that you can only have one night affairs. Lots of them. He/she dumps you right after, when , instead of cuddling with him/her, you grab your iPhone.

    An android user, on the other hand, gets to keep his/her sexual partner. And still bang a lot. But with the same person :)

    If not having an iPhone means not getting laid then

    I for one consider it a bargain.

    Interesting

    My line manager keeps on about her iPhone and how it's wonderful etc, trying to get me to justify my Android.

    Dear LM, you are officially sluttier than me.

    Only problem is the iPhone 4 owners have to grip it in a special way or no result.

    10 sexual partners for men with an iPhone.

    You could sleep with 10 prostitutes for the price of an iPhone 4 on contract.

    Granted, for that money the women wouldn't be too "fresh". You'd probably have to do it on a dirty mattress while her prospective clients watched, shooting up heroin and whipping you with a length of surgical tubing.

    Probably Better If

    they said that peolpe who sleep around more also tend to blindly follow fashions.

    I bet about 50% of the "partners" were had before the iPhone came out.

    I had an iPhone, got very little, then got an HTC Hero and got a lot more. Mind you that may have been sympathy sex. I've since replaced it for a Nokia and am still getting plenty :)

    Really?

    I swapped my old iPhone 3G for an Android last year so does that now mean I'm finally settling down?

    In any case, I've had more phones than iPhone girls have had guys.

    Just need to add up my Nokia's, Motorolas, Ericssons, Sony Ericssons, iPhones and Androids together and you might be able to work out just how much sex I've had.

    Can any useful info be gleaned from this? Why, yes...

    That's an interesting chart, but I'm not sure what it means. While the difference appears to be statistically significant, it's possible to draw differing conclusions...

    Since the chart indicates number of sexual partners, and not necessarily frequency, it's not necessarily a metric for who's getting laid most often, but more cloesly related to who's more likely to give it up on short notice.

    So will buying a iPhone help get you laid? Perhaps not. While it does have it's appeal as a status symbol in some circles, it will probably take more than that to close the deal.

    It's a known quantity that iPhones are popular with people who find trendy stuff important, and Androids are popular with geeky types, so I'm sure that skews the result... the trendy types are most likely more into going out and being social, and thus collecting more conquests...

    Or perhaps hos just prefer iPhones...

    But one bit of useful info can be gleaned - as closing time is approaching and it's time to make that last ditch effort, look for the skank tying to drunk dial on her iPhone...

    Exaggerating?

    It does seem a little odd that the gadget users that have most sexual partners are Panasonic SLR owners... especially considering Panasonic don't actually make any SLRs.

    new model

    It's obvious Iphone users have to get the latest shiney model as soon as it comes out, if its 3 months old it is past it. If it apllies to phones it applies to partners.

    The article may be a load of bollocks...

    ...but the comments are a fascinating sociological study in contemporary attitudes about sex, complete with the requisite slut-shaming, assumptions about fidelity, and speculation about partner selection criteria.

    The original OK Cupid correlation is utterly worthless, but the comments here are pure anthropological gold.

    Number of partners

    Um...current...or total? If current, that’s a little high. If total, those are some depressingly low numbers. Especially by 30.

    Put down an iPhone?

    Jean-Paul - You appear to have a light grasp on the concept, old boy...

    Here's how you put down an iPhone...

    Place it on the floor

    Remove your hand,

    then take a mallet to the damn thing.
