(Newser) – If the results of a survey by a Swedish "intimate lifestyle product" manufacturer are to be believed, the left-handed among us are vastly more satisfied with our sex lives. As part of LELO's 2014 Global Sex Survey of 10,000 people, the company distinguished between righties and lefties, and asked about their levels of satisfaction in bed. Some 86% of southpaws put themselves in the "Extremely Satisfied" category; only 15% of right-handed people did the same, reports Australia's News Network. LiveScience previously noted that about 10% of the planet is left-handed.

But LELO's note that the results were verified by the seemingly non-existent and too-perfectly-named "Le Gauche Institute, Paris" is enough to lead us to advise you to take the results with a grain of salt. After all, LELO has good reason for coming to such conclusions: It has a new product out that's designed for left-hand use ... by righties. Among other potentially disheartening sex-survey news: the condom maker Durex last month found that 5% of us have checked Facebook during sex, and an even larger number—10%—have read a text during lovemaking; 12% admit to answering the phone.
