Love Emerges Victorious in "Sex and Politics" Poll From
But a Quarter Say Sex Only, No Romance

PALO ALTO, Calif. – October 17, 2006

Men and women agree that love trumps politics when it comes to sex, according to a recent poll of more than 2,300 men and women conducted by, a leading online dating site.

The question posed in the interactive poll was: "Can you get romantic with someone who is a member of the opposite political party?" A total of 60 percent said "sure." More than a quarter of those polled said "Yes, but only for sex and not a real relationship." Each of the following choices received votes from four percent of respondents: "No, I'd run as soon as I found out they were on the 'wrong' side," "No, we would argue too much," and "Yes, if I thought I could convert them to my party."

"They say that 'politics makes strange bedfellows' but based on this survey I’d say love conquers even political tensions and may even make for more interesting foreplay," said Legendary Lars, Vice President for Marketing of FriendFinder, Inc., parent company of the intimate social network and community.

The poll was taken in September among members of, the world’s largest personals community for people looking for intimate relationships. The results were essentially the same among women respondents as they were for men. The complete poll results can be viewed at
