NEW YORK, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The love lives of many Americans are looking a little rosier leading into Valentine's Day this year, according to a new Love Survey conducted by TouchTunes Interactive Networks, one of the leading out-of-home interactive entertainment networks in North America.

In a poll of nearly 85,000 men and women on digital jukeboxes in 40,000 bars and restaurants, a majority of respondents reported having more sex since the economic downturn and spending more money on their Valentine this year. Forty-one percent say they have had the most success finding love in bars, while 47 percent are most likely to express their love through "sexting."

But love isn't all around: A majority of those surveyed (33%) said Tiger Woods was the last man on earth with whom they would want to spend Valentine's Day, and chose Rosie O'Donnell among women (46%). Kanye West and Lindsay Lohan came in second in each category.

Other highlights from the survey results include:

  • 30 percent of women who took the survey said Taylor Swift's "Love Song" best describes the current state of their love lives
  • 28 percent of men said Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me" best describes their love lives
  • 9 percent of men and women over 21 reported still being a virgin as they head into Valentine's Day 2010
  • The majority of respondents were men and women between the ages of 21 and 34.
