Who's better in bed?

Owning up the fact that Democrats are "better human beings in general," an anonymous writer in GQ contends that between the sheets it's a Republican you want beside you (or choose a preposition of your own).

Here's an example (cover the kids' eyes), reason #7, Efficiency:


Republicans are much more likely to whip their dicks out during the cab ride back from dinner. (This is not an urban myth.) They are also more inclined to get started in the elevator, pin you against a wall, do you on the kitchen sink, wherever. Democrats bring jammies, spend at least twenty minutes prior to "sex time" doing God knows fucking what in the bathroom, and then emerge with a big grin that says: "After all I did for you supporting equal pay and abortion rights, the least you could do is make love to me." Democrats always think you owe them. Republicans, because they’ve never done a goddamn thing for you, have no such delusions.
Me, I think the whole list is a not-so-subtle diss on Republicans. If the person who wrote this believes in what they wrote, or if some sad sap gets a spring in his step from reading it, that can't be helped. In fact, I think it's a doubly effective diss. On the one hand, it takes constant swipes at Republicans, while simultaneously taking them for such chumps that they'll smile because they think their egos are being stroked.

Either way, Ann at Feministing has written a response piece, 10 Reasons Why Liberal Men are Better in Bed:
1. Conscience! A liberal man knows it’s not all about him. His getting off is contingent on yours. You don’t have to make him pancakes to get him to go down on you.
The rest is here. (Feministing)
