The Two Faces of Bisexual OKCupid

The Two Faces of Bisexual OKCupid | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

There are no bisexual women on OKCupid. There are thousands of bisexual women on OKCupid. If you find that contradictory, well, welcome to the paradoxical world of bisexual OKCupid


... I rarely see the gender binary discussed by gay people on OKCupid, and certainly never by straight people—even though, of course, the concepts of homosexuality and heterosexuality imply a gender binary as well. Gay people and straight people simply don’t seem to worry that their sexual orientation is inherently offensive to the people they’d like to date.

An Open Letter to Young Tamil Men About Female Sexuality

An Open Letter to Young Tamil Men About Female Sexuality | Sex Positive | Scoop.it
There seems to be a flawed assumption somewhere in the depths of our patriarchal culture that the ideal woman should be angelic and innocent, blushing at the mere mention of words like "sex" or "penis." Sometimes, when my anger do...

How Your Race Affects The Messages You Get « OkTrends

How Your Race Affects The Messages You Get « OkTrends | Sex Positive | Scoop.it
  • Black women write back the most. Whether it’s due to talkativeness, loneliness, or a sense of plain decency, black women are by far the most likely to respond to a first contact attempt. In many cases, their response rate is one and a half times the average, and, overall, black women reply about a quarter more often that other women.
  • White men get more responses. Whatever it is, white males just get more replies from almost every group. We were careful to preselect our data pool so that physical attractiveness (as measured by our site picture-rating utility) was roughly even across all the race/gender slices. For guys, we did likewise with height.
  • White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else—and Asian and Hispanic women prefer them even more exclusively. These three types of women only respond well to white men. More significantly, these groups’ reply rates tonon-whites is terrible. Asian women write back non-white males at21.9%, Hispanic women at 22.9%, and white women at 23.0%. It’s here where things get interesting, for white women in particular. If you look at the match-by-race table before this one, the “should-look-like” one, you see that white women have an above-average compatibility with almost every group. Yet they only reply well to guys who look like them. There’s more data on this towards the end of the post.

Bad Romance: The Terrible World of Video Game Dating Sites

Bad Romance: The Terrible World of Video Game Dating Sites | Sex Positive | Scoop.it
There are websites for everything. Therefore, there are websites for gamers who need dates, and there are websites for people who want to date gamers. These sites might be one and the same. It's not really clear in the surprisingly inept world of video game dating sites, a web of false promises, Google search bait and general crappiness.

How a Math Genius Hacked OkCupid to Find True Love

How a Math Genius Hacked OkCupid to Find True Love | Sex Positive | Scoop.it

McKinlay, a lanky 35-year-old with tousled hair, was one of about 40 million Americans looking for romance through websites like Match.com, J-Date, and e-Harmony, and he’d been searching in vain since his last breakup nine months earlier. He’d sent dozens of cutesy introductory messages to women touted as potential matches by OkCupid’s algorithms. Most were ignored; he’d gone on a total of six first dates.


On that early morning in June 2012, his compiler crunching out machine code in one window, his forlorn dating profile sitting idle in the other, it dawned on him that he was doing it wrong. He’d been approaching online matchmaking like any other user. Instead, he realized, he should be dating like a mathematician.

http://www.youngerolderdating.com - is the best site for Younger Women Older Men Dating . For 13 years, it have successfully helped people who celebrate age gap dating.No age gap is too wide if you both feel so right. Love is ageless and pure. Hence, having a big age gap in a relationship should never pose a problem.
