HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — Adam & Eve's latest “Great American Sex Survey" has asked adults if they ever use sex as a bargaining tool.

More than 1,000 American adults were polled in the survey with 25 percent of women and 15 percent of men admitting that they have participated in sexual bargaining.

The respondents said they’ve used lines like “I’ll agree to have sex if you mow the lawn/take me on vacation/etc.,” to get what they want.

“I would speculate that more women then men engage in this behavior simply because it often takes women longer to ‘warm up’ for sex,” Dr. Kat Van Kirk, resident sexpert for AdamAndEve.com said. “The idea that they can get their partners to gladly take out the trash or walk the dog is appealing.”

“If the bargaining is done in a playful way, it can be a fun part of a healthy sexual relationship,” continued Dr. Kat. “It’s when it becomes a means to an end that partners feel taken advantage of.”

The web-based survey was conducted by an independent third party survey to study sexual preferences and practices.

“Adam & Eve encourages adults to explore all the aspects of positive sexuality within their own comfort zones,” director of Marketing Chad Davis said. “We believe sexual education leads to a happier, more fulfilling sex life.”

"Sex Chat with Dr. Kat" and “Daily Sex Tips from Hawaii” can be found on podcasts through iTunes or at DrKat.com.
