Adam & Eve Poll Finds Majority of Women Own Sex Toys

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C.—Adam & Eve has released the results of their annual poll, and they reveal just how many adults own sex toys, and the numbers are higher than you may think.

“Year after year, studies show an increase in adults’ acceptance and use of adult toys,” said Dr. Jenni Skyler, resident sexologist at Adam & Eve. “Toys include vibrators, stimulators, masturbators and more. Whether the focus is on self-care or to enhance a solo or couples’ experience, I’m pleased to see sex toys becoming more mainstream and acknowledged.”

While 50.77 percent of those polled reported they own a sex toy, 49.23 percent said they did not.

Interestingly, when broken down between males and females, the results showed that nearly 57 percent of the females admitted they owned a sex toy, compared to 44 percent of the males.

“Adam & Eve carries a wide variety of adult toys for every comfort level,” said Chad Davis, director of marketing for Adam & Eve. “The company has been around nearly 50 years, and our most popular items are sex toys. I’d like to think there’s a good reason why!”

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