To Get into their Panties, Get an iPhone

The dating site, OkCupid has completed a new study which confirms our earlier blog post back in April about the higher chance of getting laid with iPhone! The study has determined that among people who use smartphones,  iPhone users have a much higher chance of getting laid, followed by BlackBerry users and finally Android users.

Hmmm…. Perhaps this is because the Android has an easily accessible porn app store?

I am dumping my Android for iPhone today. If that’s what it takes to get laid, who cares about early termination fees? I would even pay $1,000 to get out of it. 

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.

In one approach, the survey sample was restricted to people aged 30. That way, differences in the usual ages of users of one smartphone type or another couldn’t affect the results. 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.

I think the study does make sense to a point. Guys see a girl with an iPhone 4  and figure that:

a) She’s a hipster, or
b) She’s kind of into tech.

Both are hot and open potentials for said girl to get laid. But continuing that logic, you would expect the trend to reciprocate itself through Android phones.

On second thought, I think it’s best to just look at stereotypical users. Blackberry users are probably employed / married / stable. They’ll get laid by their partners, whether or not married, but probably aren’t as promiscuous as iPhone users. You do see kids going around with them, but they’re not the majority. Kids are more prone to get Androids or iPhones.

In conclusion (my conclusions of course :-))

. Regardless how repulsive you are, get an iPhone to get laid

. Android 2.2 ready Smartphones are a very good device for viewing porn. (flash streaming videos? No Problemo!) – Personal experience 🙂

. Blackberry? Okay, at least it does vibrate, quite well.

. Since there was no mention of Windows mobile, it leaves  me to believe that their users don’t get laid at all. So, your call.

    Makes sense. iPhone’s are all superficial. True geeks love Androids (and we all know they don’t get laid). And Blackberrys are owned by older, business types that keep a (paid) mistress on the side.

    I have a Droid and I just got some last night. {{-_-}}

    There is an app for STDs I think, ummmm….not that “I” would know personally. heh

  4. Steve G says:

    Damn! I have an iPhone and that never happened to me??!?! Oh wait…right…I’m married.

  5. Drew says:

    so iPhone users are whores, Blackberry users get around, and Android users somehow manage to be geektastic and still get action while not being sluts. XD What a funny statistic.

  6. Jennifer says:

    Android looks poor, blackberry looks stiff and iPhone is just sexy.

  7. Kai says:

    No droids are the ones who couldn’t afford iPhones. iPhones are for the geeks and chics, that’s why it’s awesome. I’m an engineer rocking an iPhone… Everyone else who wants to keep it business rocks the Berry. All on how u wanna present yourself.

  8. pete says:

    blackberry users… They have the money to pay for whores. And you must not know sluts. BBM all day with those ladies…

  9. Hamid says:

    Gay men also have more sex partners, on average, than heterosexual men. Coincidence?.

  10. TFord says:

    Ok Elias….does this finding hold hold true for both sexes? I’m a Nokia Maemo user (linux geeky), but my girlfriend is an IPhone addict (1st generation on up). Should I consider smashing her IPhone and replace it with an old monochrome flip phone?

  11. Elias Shams says:

    I doubt it goes both way. You are forgetting something. We are men – Translation: we are stupid and simple. No emotional issues, no complication, nothing what so ever. All the girl has to do is to play with her hair or just say hi to us, she can have us for breakfast.

    On the other hand, babes are very complicated. It is them that we need to do a lot of work on, a lot of politics, worst of all, a lot of talking, etc. you know.

    So, it looks like with the birth of iPhone, no need for us, men to go through all that hell. Just hold it in your hand when going to the club, make sure the chicks sees it, and take them home in pack 🙂

    If YOU get an iPhone, I would suggest your girlfriend to smash it 🙂

    DOn’t see connection between iPhone and sex drive at all. Does it really matter to know what phone man holds in order to determine what’s in his pants?? I am not convinced here.

    Guys – and it’s mostly guys who click on this news – this is a FAKE study. Obviuosly. Created by a dating site. A study showing that men have less partners than sexual partners than women is contrary to nearly all studies in any country in the last 100 years. No phone will ever change me’s ability to brag.
