Finally, science has done important work: what could you be texting to help you get laid more? Thanks to research, we now know.

According to a pretty big study by Match.com, there's one thing you could be doing that might lead to more sex: using emojis.

Yup, that's right, people who use emojis tend to have more sex than those that don't. Not only that, but the more emojis one uses, the more sex one has.

So why, what's the deal? Why does someone magically start to become Adam Levine the moment an animated eggplant is sent from his phone?

It’s notoriously difficult to read tone in texts and emails, but emojis can bridge the gap. “[Emoji users] want to give their texts more personality,” says Fisher. “Here we have a new technology that absolutely jeopardizes your ability to express your emotion… there is no more subtle inflection of the voice … and so we have created another way to express emotions and that is the emoji.”

 

If I could, I would give the heart eyes emoji to this study.
