Let me just say it is a task being single and maintaining an active sex life. How do you even go about this intimidating task, right? 

Unfortunately, how to have a sex life and stay single is something you'll have to figure out on your own. What we can tell you, however, is what American singles are looking for in their sexual partners. Why? Because it's always good to know about new trends in the world of sex and kink.

According to a survey done by American dating site,, the two most important things for over 5,000 participants was to find a sexual partner who is caring and enthusiastic. Whether it is a one-time thing or a few months' long fling, people do not expect their partners to be dismissive about the relationship. 

Of course, bad sex was a deal-breaker for most of them; but, if their partner was affectionate, they were more than willing to give it a second chance.

The next three indicators of a good sex partner were communication skills, a good kisser and someone who helps them achieve orgasm. Well, the last two are the most obvious ones for me. In fact, I am surprised they took the fourth and fifth place, even in considerably non-serious relationships.  

When it came to what turned them off, single people ranked too much talking and lack of passion as two of the major issues. But, some even admitted having an issue with their partner not saying 'I love you' at the end of intercourse. 

Looks like we do eventually think with our hearts more than our minds!
