Stats Show iPhone Owners Get More Sex 397

An anonymous reader writes "According to OK Cupid's survey of 552,000 user pictures iPhone users have more sexual partners than BlackBerry or Android owners. By age 30, the average male iPhone user has had about 10 partners while female iPhone users have had 12. By contrast, BlackBerry users hover around 8 partners and Android users have a mere 6. As the blog's author's wryly observe: 'Finally, statistical proof that iPhone users aren't just getting f*@ked by Apple.'"

    Another way to look at the study is that iPhone owners are insufferable idiots not prepared to make the compromises necessary to stay in a long term relationship, hence the greater number of "partners".

    Either way I hope they enjoy their HPV induced cervical cancer and other sexually transmitted diseases.

    I thought the latest studies showed conclusively that iPhones don't cause cancer.

    Those numbers don't match others I've seen although, as with all thing numeric online, it's best to assume a little healthy exaggeration. I did some digging and found that the US Census Bureau's 2010 Statistical Abstract [census.gov] includes a section on sexual activity. The full table (94 for those keeping track) is on page 19 of the report.
    For Males 25 to 29

    95.2% have had an opposite sex partner, 5.7% a same sex sexual contact
    10% had 1 contact
    8.8% had 2
    29.4 had 3 to 6
    23.2 had 7 to 14
    and 23.8 had 15 or more

    Median was 5.9

    For Males 30 to 34

    97.2% have had an opposite sex partner,
    10.7% had 1 contact
    6.9% had
    28.5 had 3 to 6
    21.9 had 7 to 14
    and 29.2 had 15 or more

    Median was 6.4

    There are differences based on race - Latinos have a median of 4.5 and African Americans of 8.3 - and sex: a quick glance at the numbers shows that a much greater percentage of women have had 1 partner (25-29 being 22.5% and 20-24 at 20.5%) than their male peers.

    If somebody's getting laid regularly, what are the odds that they're going to be visiting "OK Cupid"

    Actually, one of my friends uses online dating specifically to get laid, and he's already doing pretty well. OK Cupid has a bad reputation for this type of type of thing(the fact that its free probably has something to do with it). Online dating is a very good way to meet a lot of people in a short period of time. Its not just used by people that are desperate.
