After surveying 5,504 single American adults, ranging from 18 to over 70, Match found that singles who are passionate about politics have 13% more orgasms, and are 32% more likely to have multiple orgasms than the uninvested. This was the case for Democrats and Republicans alike.
After taking a specific look at the differences between Clinton fans and Trump supporters, Match discovered that Trump supporters were 99% more likely than Clinton fans to have a sex tape of themselves, and 1,104% more likely to expect "sexual contact" on a first date. Trump supporters were also 82% more likely to be unemployed. As Helen Fisher, PhD and advisor to Match, commented to The Washington Post, "One thing that Trump doesn’t have is impulse control, and that’s very appealing to this group of people."
Clinton fans, meanwhile, were 129% more likely than Trump supporters to drink red wine, and 606% more likely to identify as gay; they were also 102% more likely to lie about how many sex partners they've had.
