Adam & Eve Surprising Sex Survey

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — A new sex study by Adam & Eve reveals some surprising results about how often Americans have sex.

According to the company’s “Great American Sex Survey,” more than one-third of the respondents said they have sex once or twice a week, while the next largest group, 22 percent, said they have sex only one to three times a month.

“This news is a bit disappointing to us,” said Katy Zvolerin, Adam & Eve director of public relations. “Studies have shown that a healthy sex life can lower blood pressure and improve overall health. At Adam & Eve, we encourage a sex positive relationship between loving, consensual adults.”

The third highest level of respondents with 19 percent, reported they had sex 3 to 4 times a week.

The next highest group at 17 percent, said they had sex “seldom” or “never.”

Only 4.8 percent of the adults surveyed said they enjoyed sex five to six times a week. And around 3 percent said they had sex once or more than once a day.

The web-based monthly 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.
