The Surprising Results of Good Vibrations Sex Survey

SAN FRANCISCO - (October 30, 2008): Are Republicans conservative in the streets, but kinky between the sheets? Good Vibrations, the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, conducted an online sex survey to find out. And according to results… the answer is yes!

In fact, almost half (48%) of Republican respondents admit making home-movies featuring sexual acts, while only 40% of Independents and 38% of Democrats get hot for their handy-cams. Even more Republicans rehearse their porn performances, with 67% engaging in role-play during sex. 62% of Democrats and 55% of Independents/Others also act out their favorite sexual fantasies. Amazingly, 90% of Republicans say that they have had sex outdoors, compared to 83% of Democrats and 81% of Independents/Others. Their environmental record doesn’t support preservation, but apparently it supports copulation!

75% of Republicans reported that they regularly use sex toys, followed closely by 74% of Democrats and Independents/Others. These statistics imply that nearly three quarters of the population enhance their sex play with pleasure products! 82% of Independents/Others have had sex using blindfolds, handcuffs or other restraints, with the Republicans right behind at 81% and Democrats only at 77%. Looks like the Democrats are less likely to give up control. Independents/Others are more likely to share their sexual experiences. 43% have engaged in a threesome and 39% have been to a sex club or sexuality focused event. Democrats aren’t as outgoing, with 37% having had a threesome and 34% attending a sex event. Republicans were the most introverted, with threesomes coming in at 27% and sex events at only 25%. So don’t expect to see their booth at the next Exotic Erotic Ball. The only question dominated by the Democrats was “Have you ever engaged in Cyber or Phone sex,” with 80% of them said that they had. 70% of Independents/Others and 67% of Republicans had techie sex. Does that make the Dems more modern?

Hundreds of unique users logged on to sound off about their political and sexual preferences. Good Vibrations surprising survey results revealed that Republicans may not be as conservative as they seem, that Democrats may not be as liberal in bed and that Independents/Others aren’t only out to please themselves!
