HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — Adam & Eve has announced the results of its annual sex survey, where it asked adults “Who should teach teens about sex?”
According to the company, while 22 percent of the respondents feel that sex education should come solely from parents or guardians, only two percent of those surveyed believe that teens should receive their sex education in school alone. The majority, 76 percent of the respondents, said that sex education should be provided by both parents or guardians and the school system,
“The saying ‘it takes a village’ applies to sex education as well,” says Dr. Kat Van Kirk, resident sexologist for Adam & Eve. “It’s imperative that teenagers receive information from different sources and understand that each source has its own agenda… whether that is religious, cultural or social.”
“But teens are much more astute than many people realize,” Van Kirk adds, “and they can pull the data they need from what is provided.”
The web-based survey of more than 1,000 American adults age 18 and older was conducted by an independent third party survey company and sponsored by Adam & Eve to study sexual preferences and practices.
