Hey, all you sex-crazed people out there, listen up.
If you're trying to keep your sexy, sensual sex thoughts close to the vest, emojis could be blowing up your spot.
According to Popular Science, the connection between sexual thoughts and emojis goes far beyond the little purple eggplant. New research suggests the biggest emoji users are also people who frequently have sex on the brain.
Match.com conducted a study that reported 36 to 40 percent of the 5,000 singles surveyed think about sex several times daily and also use multiple emojis per text.
If that wasn't enough proof (every text? Jeez), the study also revealed participants who claimed to only think about sex once per day used emojis more sparingly, and those who claimed they think about sex once a month reported using emojis the least.
Sometimes, it's easier to get your flirt on when you have a little help from a tiny salsa dancer or a pile of poop with eyes.
[Emoji users] want to give their texts more personality. Here we have a new technology that absolutely jeopardizes your ability to express your emotion… there is no more subtle inflection of the voice… and so we have created another way to express emotions and that is the emoji.
But the main concern isn't the connection between emojis and sexual thinking. It's whether or not emojis actually work to help get users laid.
Emoji users don't just have more sex, they go on more dates and they are two times more likely to want to get married. Sixty-two percent of emoji users want to get married compared to 30 percent of people who never used an emoji… that's pretty good.
