If you feel like your libido is a little lacking at the moment, you’re probably not alone. Because it’s not just your stress and anxiety levels being impacted by the current election — the race for the White House is also taking a toll on your sex drive, suggests new survey results.
According to a recent study conducted by fertility app Kindara and published in New York Magazine, the amount of sex women are having this election season is taking a nosedive — particularly among Democrat supporters.
Kindara studied 928 female users (all of whom identify as U.S. citizens and can vote) in October and the survey revealed some interesting results. Apparently 19 percent of women who support the Democrat party feel the election is having a negative impact on their sex lives. Meanwhile a significantly smaller segment — just nine percent — of Republican women share report the same feeling.
The survey also asked women what they were most looking forward to on election day: Voting or having sex. Again, the results varied greatly between both parties, with 45 percent of female Republican supporters choosing sex compared with only 25 percent of Democrats.
Interestingly, four percent of women said they did not want to get pregnant until the results of the election were announced — 56 percent of these women were Clinton supporters, 18 percent were planning to vote for Trump.
Kindara also revealed that Democrats were more open-minded when it came to dating someone who didn’t share their same political beliefs — 33 percent of Democrats said they were dating a non-Democrat while only 16 percent of Republican women admitted to dating a non-Republican.
While the study hardly considers a representative sample of the population, it is still fascinating to see how many women feel the election is impacting their sex lives — and thank goodness we’re down to the final hours of the campaign.
