Sex Survey Reveals Statistics/Thoughts On Abortion

HILLSBOROUGH, NC—When it comes to sex,, one of America’s most trusted sources for adult products, has made it part of its business philosophy to ask the tough questions about major societal issues, and today, the company has released new results from its annual sex survey, where they asked over 1,000 adults if they (or their partner) had ever had an abortion, and how they felt about it.

While 25% of the women said they had undergone an abortion in their lifetime, as did 20% of their male partners share that experience, 27% of the women and 24% of the men said they regretted that decision. Just over 49% of the women and 37% of the men said they felt relief with their or their partner's choice, and 24% of the women and 39% of the men felt indifferent about it.

"Reproductive health is basic human right,” said Dr. Jenni Skyler, resident sexologist at Adam & Eve. “It is encouraging that the number of abortions has been declining; however, it is essential that the right to make this very individual choice is legal and accessible to all. It is also important to recognize that making the choice to terminate a pregnancy is always difficult. The emotional result can vary from grief to relief. As we navigate the difficulties of abortion, I believe it is key to have both accurate information and counseling support during all parts of the process—before, during, and after."

“Adam & Eve’s annual sex survey gauges the changing sexual attitudes and values of American adults,” reminded Chad Davis, Director of Marketing for Adam & Eve.

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.
