Adam & Eve Asks: Should Same-Sex Couples Be Allowed to Adopt?

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — AdamAndEve.com is back this month with new results from its annual sex survey in which the company asked more than 1,000 adults how they felt about gay and lesbian couples adopting a child. 

While 12 percent of the respondents (12 percent of the women and 13 percent of the men) admitted they weren’t sure how they felt, and 14 percent (nine percent of the women and 20 percent of the men) said they did not think gays and lesbians should adopt, an overwhelming 73 percent (79 percent of the women and 67 percent of the men) believed that same-sex couples should be able to adopt a child.

Although it has been legal for same-sex couples to adopt in all 50 states since 2016, many LGBT couples still face discrimination from fostering or adopting children in America, the survey reported.

“The purpose of Adam & Eve’s annual sex survey is to gauge changing sexual attitudes and values with American adults,” said Chad Davis, Adam & Eve's director of marketing. “AdamEve.com carries a wide variety of products for adults in all stages and types of relationships. From toys to games and novelties, Adam & Eve is a judgment-free retail space for everyone.”

The web-based survey, conducted by an independent third-party company, polled more than 1,000 American adults age 18 and up. It was sponsored by Adam & Eve to study sexual preferences and practices.
