Researchers from the Kinsey Institute in Indiana University and the Department of Psychology at Chicago’s Lake Forest College undertook the studies.

The first study looked at over 5,000 adults, 10% of who identified as gay, lesbian, or bisexual.

They were asked questions like “How frequently do you use emojis/emoticons in your text messages to a date?”

The researchers also asked about the number of dates they’d been on and the number of times they’d had sex in the previous year.

The second study asked additional questions to find out about follow up dates and numbers of sexual partners.

The findings suggested people who use emojis had more sexual partners, more second dates, and as a subsequence, more sex.

“Our findings suggest that emoji use with potential partners is associated with maintaining connection beyond the first date, and more romantic and sexual interactions.”

The researchers concluded that using emojis in text messages lend, “expression in ways that satisfy fundamental human desires for affection, intimate communication, and interpersonal closeness.”

In other words, it’s a bit like body language in real life.

The emojis give a better sense of the person than words alone.

Using emojis

Of course, many people use a smiley face to denote friendliness on messages. However, some go further to enliven their messages with emoji symbols that add colour to plain old text.

Some become creative artists producing works like the emoji poem (below) by La Jamon.

Others still, show off their literary endeavours. Witness this interpretation (below) of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
