OkCupid adds another report to their growing list of analyses on relationships. This time around, they look at sex and how ideas vary by demographic. The above graph shows per capita GDP versus portion of people looking for casual sex.
We were amazed at this result—money seems to be a more powerful influence on sex drive than culture or even religion.
You have, for example, Portugal, Oman, Slovenia, and Taiwan within a few pixels of each other on the right side of the graph, and Syria, Sri Lanka, and Guatemala almost stacked on the left, and all of them sit along the trend line.
Interesting as usual. What amazes me more is that so many people answer such private questions. Have any of you tried OkCupid? Are these questions part of the matching process?
See OkCupid for more findings on sex such as drive and body type and Twitter usage and commitment.
