According to Adam & Eve’s Great American Sex Survey, 23.8 percent said they’d slept with between two to five partners. Of the respondents 21 percent were male and 28 percent were female.
The respondents with six to 10 partners (23.1 percent) consisted of 22 percent males and 24.9 percent females. Twenty-one percent of the respondents answered that they have had between 11 and 25 partners.
Thirteen percent of the female respondents and 11.7 of the males said they have had only one partner.
“We were pleased to see that the number of partners for the average person is in line with a similar survey we created around 10 years ago,” said Katy Zvolerin, Adam & Eve director or public relations. “It’s interesting to see that even with much more access to sexually oriented media, the average American is still holding on to traditional sexual values in many ways.”
The smallest answer selection of the survey showed that 8.8 percent of the respondents have had more than 50 partners.
The test was conducted by Cvent, an event management and web survey software company, on behalf of Adam & Eve.
The web-based survey, conducted by Cvent, of more than 1,000 American adults age 18 and up, was sponsored by Adam & Eve to study sexual preferences and practices.
