With the 2020 election just around the corner, there are a lot of pressing political issues to consider. Fortunately, sexual wellness company SKYN has answers to one of the most critical questions shaping the political climate today — namely, which political party is getting laid more?

While we tend to think of the left as more sexually liberated than their conservative counterparts, it turns out Republicans are actually having more sex. SKYN’s 2020 Sex and Intimacy Survey found that 42 percent of Republicans report having sex more than eight times per month, compared to just 35 percent of Democrats.

According to the survey, Republicans are also more likely to shower right after sex, to fall for pickup lines and to experiment with significant age gaps — 44 percent of Republican respondents said they’ve had sex with someone twice their age.

Democrats, meanwhile, are more likely to watch porn. Only 31 percent of Dems said they’ve never watched it, compared to 43 percent of Republicans. And while Republicans may be having more frequent sex now, Dems tend to get an earlier start. According to the survey, 38 percent of Democrats had sex for the first time at age 16 or younger, compared to 34 percent of Republicans.

Democrats are also more likely to cuddle, and use condoms and dating apps, and less likely than Republicans to fake orgasms.

It’s important to stay informed during this crucial time in our nation’s history. Fortunately, now we can confidently approach election day knowing we have critical insight into the issues that really matter.
