A new survey reveals some of the bizarre turn-ons, turn-offs and choices people make in their sex lives -- including their literal sexual appetites.

Single men and women in America who stick to a gluten-free diet are 217 percent more likely to have gone on a date in the past year than their gluten-eating counterparts. Additionally, U.S. singles with a gluten-free diet are 172 percent less likely to have gone two or more years without having sex. Barley, rye and beer imbibers are also less likely to have orgasms when they do have sexual intercourse, according to the Match survey for 2018.

Gluten-free people are 43 percent more likely to have orgasms than their bread-eating friends.

This marks the eighth year of’s “Singles in America” survey, in which the popular online matchmaking and dating website surveyed more than 5,000 single Americans. Helen Fisher, PhD, and Justin R. Garcia, PhD of Indiana University's Kinsey Institute worked with to complete the survey.

More than half (52 percent) of U.S. singles said that bad sex becomes a deal breaker for a relationship after a few times of poor performance. An overwhelming majority of survey respondents, 80 percent, said it is “important” for their respective partners to reach an orgasm.

Perhaps the most troubling element of the survey was that one-quarter of respondents said they would have sex with a robot if given the opportunity for high-tech sexual intercourse. Nearly one-third of men but only 15 percent of women made this bold, bot claim.

Men and women were both in the same ballpark as far as the best age to have sex. Men said age 64 and women said age 66 were the best respective times for their love life. The survey also broke down the five top ingredients for “great consensual sex,” with caring, enthusiasm, good communication, good kissing and having an orgasm all receiving over 75 percent of support. On the other hand, too much talking, a lack of passion, little movement, not saying “I love you” and keeping the lights on were listed as the top turn-offs for both men and women.

With regards to politics, only 5 percent of survey respondents said they would immediately break off a sexual relationship with someone who didn’t share their political leanings. Nearly three-quarters (72 percent) of U.S. singles said they would open to crossing party lines for their potential romantic partner. And nearly one-half of singles said they would try to understand their partner’s varying political views.
