According to The Age, the website completed a study about its users’ smartphones and sexual life, and concluded that among people who use smartphones, iPhone users have the most sexual partners, followed by BlackBerry and Android users.
The website conducted the study on 9785 people with smartphones.
Among Android users aged 30, the average man had accumulated six sexual partners in his lifetime, while the average woman had accumulated 6.1. Among BlackBerry users, the number was 8.1 for men and 8.8 for women. Male iPhone users had 10 sexual partners and female iPhone users had 12.3.
OkCupid looked at the data hidden in the images that users uploaded as profile pictures to see which cameras were used to take them including smartphone cameras.
With many of the site’s users also having taken personality tests like ‘The Dating Persona Test’ or ‘The Slut Test’, which ask for a count of sexual partners, the site was able to cross-reference that data to complete the study.
