Some people hate 'em and some people love 'em. But those who are constantly filling up your texts with those lovably annoying yellow smiley faces, purple eggplants and praying (or is it a high-five?) emojis, may be getting more action than you, according to a new study. :-O

As Time magazine reports, Match.com conducted a study of 5,600 singles in America, who do not use the popular dating website, and found a connection between emoji use and sex.

"It turns out that 54% of emoji users had sex in 2014 compared to 31% of singles who did not," Dr. Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist at Rutgers University who helped lead the study, told Time.

It also turns out the more emojis people used, the more sex they tended to have. It was also revealed that women who use kiss-related emojis have an easier time getting an orgasm with a familiar partner.

"[Emoji users] want to give their texts more personality," Fisher told the publication. "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."

She added: "Emoji users don't just have more sex, they go on more dates and they are two times more likely to want to get married. Sixty-two percent of emoji users want to get married compared to 30% of people who never used an emoji... that's pretty good."

So get to using those emojis! :*
