What 'good sex' really means to singles:

• Mary Bowerman

When it comes to having sex with a potential love interest, many singles wonder: How do I measure up in the bedroom? 

Being good at sex isn't as complicated as people often think, according to the annual Singles in America survey, funded by Dallas-based dating service Match and conducted by Research Now.

Eighty-three percent of singles, regardless of sexual orientation, ranked a caring and enthusiastic partner as the top two indicators of good sex. Other ingredients that lead to good sex are communication, a good kisser and someone who helps them achieve orgasm, according to the survey. 

"We have focused too much on sexual novelty, but you should never abandon the basics," says Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist and chief scientific adviser to Match, who helped develop the representative survey of more than 5,000 singles. "Anyone can learn that good sex is attainable."
