Want to improve your sex life? There's an app for that.

In fact, 500,000 women turned to one such app, Eve, to share sex advice and track their periods, says the company that makes the app, Glow. Glow is a startup created by PayPal mafia member Max Levchin.

Thanks to the volume of women using the app, Glow was able to look back at its data to get a peek into women's bedroom lives in 2016.

 

Many women said they were satisfied with their sex lives in 2016. Eighty-nine percent of those who used the app to log sexual activity reported that the sex was either 'mind blowing' or 'pretty good.'

Eve users living in St. Louis, Missouri, had more sex in 2016 than those in any other city in the US.

After St. Louis, the next 10 cities where women reported the most sex over the last year were: Las Vegas; Detroit; Portland, Oregon; Salt Lake City; New York City; Dallas; Orlando, Florida; Wilmington, Delaware; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Boston.

Aquarius women, born between January 20 and February 18, also had a big 2016. Eve users with this astrological sign reported having the most sex in 2016.

The next five astrological signs who reported the most frequent sex were: Virgo (August 23 to September 22), Taurus (April 20 to May 20), Libra (September 23 to October 22), Pisces (February 19 to March 20), and Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21).

Women are also talking to their would-be lovers about sex. A poll of over 1,800 women in the Glow community found that 62% talked to their partners about their sexual histories before having sex for the first time.

However, women are, for the most part, not insisting that their would-be partners get tested for STDs before sex. Only 19% of 2,100 women polled said they required their partners to get tested.

The Eve data also shed light on health issues related to women's cycles. For instance, women are more likely to have glowing, clear skin halfway through their monthly cycle. That's because this would be baby-making time — when ovulation occurs and skin-loving estrogen peaks.

And it revealed some interesting stats about the other major activity that happens in the bedroom: sleep. Over 25,000 years of sleep have been logged on the Glow apps, the company says.

The data showed that women under 25 get the most sleep, averaging slightly over 7.5 hours per night.

Women 25 to 35 years old get almost as much sleep. They average about 15 minutes less sleep than those under 25. Those over 35 get the least amount of sleep, averaging 7 hours.

Glow also found a surprising correlation between a woman's ethnic background and the amount of sleep she's likely to get.

White women get the most sleep, on average, with 7.6 hours a night. Hispanic women are averaging 7.4 hours, and black women get the least sleep, at 7.2 hours.

The folks at Glow had no real answer about what may have caused the correlation, although they said it was not a matter of household income — the trend held no matter how much money the women earned.
