INQUISITR - Mar 17 - A new study by Barış Sevi of West Virginia University sheds light on the link between sexual disgust and Tinder use. Published in Evolutionary Psychological Science, the study builds on Sevi's past research, which has shown that, although Tinder users have different motivations for using the app, casual sex is the most common one. For the study, he surveyed 271 American adults. Study participants were asked to rate, for instance, "hearing two strangers having sex" and similar sexual situations as more or less disgusting. Results showed that Tinder users have lower sexual disgust sensitivity compared to non-users, and that Tinder users generally engage in risky behaviors unrelated to sex, such as driving without a seat belt, or drinking heavily.
