Americans Like 'Women on Top,' Adam & Eve Sex Survey Finds

Bob Johnson

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — Women on top is the favorite sex position of more than 1,000 adults surveyed in the latest installment of Adam&'s “Great American Sex Survey."

The company found that 36 percent of the respondents favored “female on top,” while nearly 33 percent chose “missionary,” and 20 percent said they preferred “rear entry.”

Adam & Eve’s resident sex expert, Dr. Kat Van Kirk, said she found the results to be encouraging.

“I’m pleased to see that so many adults prefer the ‘woman on top’ position, because it provides increased intimacy while placing the female in control,” Dr. Kat said. “Part of a healthy sexual relationship is being able to both show and tell what you enjoy.”

An independent third party company canvassed more than 1,000 American adults age 18 and older in the web-based study of sexual preferences and practices.
