You're political persuasion doesn't stop people from having kinky sexual fantasies, but it does influence what porn people watch, according to a new study.

Bedroom fantasies say more about your party alignments than you might think, according to new research out of the Kinsey Institute. That study says Republicans get hot about extra-marital and multi-partner encounters, more so than their Democratic counterparts.

"Think things like infidelity, orgies and partner-swapping, from 1970s-style 'key parties' to modern-day forms of swinging," lead researcher Justin Lehmiller told Politico.

Democrats, however, are much more into "almost the entire spectrum of BDSM activities, from bondage to spanking to dominance-submission play."

Now, the big questions is: why are people so attracted to sexual fantasies that seem to be in contrast with their political ideals? Why do Republicans that value monogamy and marriage like cheating, and why do Democrats that believe in equality enjoy power imbalances? Lehmiller thinks this has to do with what a person considers taboo.

"Nothing makes us want to try something like being told you can't do it. This is why taboos, no matter what they are, often become turn-ons," he explained.

But sexual desires aren't all political opposition. Lehmiller says there are a number of fantasies that occupy common ground between the two parties.

"It's also worth noting that, while the popularity of non-monogamy and BDSM fantasies differ by political orientation, the rest of what we want—including specific sexual activities, partners and settings—is strikingly similar."

New and novel sexual experiences are a pretty much universal turn-ons, and most people fantasize much more frequently about their current sexual partners than celebrities, porn stars or other people.

And as far as the most fantasized about politician, that award goes to Sarah Palin, regardless of which party you belong to. John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton and Nikki Haley were also popular among Republicans; with Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton for Democrats.
