Hillsborough, NC — The latest sex survey results from Adam & Eve reveal most adults take matters into their own hands once or twice a week. But while 27% admit to masturbating once or twice a week, the next highest percentage of respondents (19%) say they never do it. This is followed by18%, who admit they masturbate once or twice a month, 11% who masturbate once every few months, 9% who say they masturbate every day, 8% who say they rarely masturbate, and 3% who say they masturbate more than once a day.
Dr. Kat Van Kirk, Adam & Eve’s resident sex expert, says, “Masturbation is a fundamental building block in human sexuality. It’s surprising that so many adults still look to their partners to please them, when they don’t even know how to please themselves. While encouraging, I do believe the numbers are actually higher. There’s still a social stigma associated with masturbation and previous research has indicated individuals tend to under report.”
Adam & Eve director of marketing Chad Davis notes, “Adam & Eve encourages American adults to educate themselves on all areas of sexuality. We feel the wide array of products we offer can make any erotic encounter – even those with yourself – better.”
The web-based survey, conducted by an independent third party survey company, of over 1,000 American adults age 18 and up, was sponsored by Adam & Eve to study sexual preferences and practices. “Sex Chat with Dr. Kat” can be found on podcasts through iTunes or www.drkat.com.
