"Exploring in the bedroom creates different ways to connect and be playful," says Laurel House, an eharmony relationship expert.

"It's not just about the outcome of the orgasm, but about having fun together, trying new things, and exploring one another," she continued. "We've kept that quarantine mentality of experiencing life in a space we feel safe: the bedroom."

For those in relationships, it seems priorities are a little different.

While five percent of those in relationships said they're focusing more on sex, 64% of respondents said they're focusing more on quality time. The final 31% of people said they're equally focused on both.

"People are now more in tune with their emotional needs and mental health, which has led people to desire closeness, emotional safety, and space for vulnerability," explained Minaa B., another eharmony relationship expert.

"Our current culture is eager and hungry for connection and companionship, which happens mostly in spending quality time together."

That being said, 53% of those in relationships say they frequently orgasm — but 42% say that "stress has a negative impact on their sex lives."

As well, only 40% of respondents in relationships said they are happy with their sex lives.
