Stats on online dating
OKCupid users can provide as much or as little information as they wish on their profiles, so some users didn't respond to all of the following questions.
But, thanks to the dating site's huge user base, the average number of responders was around 200,000.
Given the reported benefits of practicing BDSM, can you blame them for being curious?
But that's not all OKCupid learned about the desires of its 2015 users.
While OKCupid expects to see a continued rise in open-mindedness and all things Netflix, no one knows for sure what 2016 holds in store for OKCupid's intrepid online daters.
But in the 21st century, more and more couples are having the same response when asked how they first came to know each other: online. According to the 2010 census, women make up 50.9% of the general population.
The stats — which come from OKCupid's newly launched blog and data hub, The Deep End — revealed that 58% of OKCupid users wanted to give bondage a try.
While 60% of them liked the idea of being tied up, and 40% preferred to be the ones doing the tying.
If you're wondering whether or not your online dating match could be into kink, you might be closer to an answer.
Popular dating site OKCupid has released its 2015 year in review, and as it turns out, their users are interested in BDSM.
