(Newser) – Here's a tidbit stunning enough to interruptus your coitus: Republicans—no, make that conservative Republicans—report the highest rate of orgasms, according to a new sex poll. More than half of those who identified themselves as conservative Republicans said they reached orgasm almost every time they had sex, compared with just 40% of liberal Democrats, according to a new 6,000-subject "Singles in America" survey by Binghamton University in conjunction with Match.com. The downside? They report having less sex, reports the Daily Beast, which got an early sneak-peek at the poll.

Some other hot news the singles survey uncovered: Guys are actually into romance and commitment, ambitious women turn men on, and good sex is vitally important to women when they're picking a mate. Half of women polled say that “bad sex” would be a deal-breaker in a relationship, compared with 44% of men. More men—43%—than women—33%—think it's acceptable for males to be a stay-at-home Mr. Mom. And 80% of both genders say they believe that housework and childcare should not be left only to women. The come-away for candidates is the finding that American singles don't like their politicians to cheat. While only a third of those surveyed don't think fidelity is a "must have" in their own lives, 9 out of 10 believe there are "no acceptable excuses" for politicians to cheat, notes the Beast.
