New Adam & Eve Survey Finds More Americans Enjoying Anal

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C.—Adam & Eve continues its Great American Sex Survey with the release of its latest results.

The company recently asked more than 1,000 Americans how they felt about the once-taboo act of anal sex with 68 percent of respondents admitting they had tried it and 45 percent said that they enjoyed it.

“We are pleased to note that most Americans now view anal sex as an accepted and normal part of sexuality,” Adam & Eve Marketing Director Chad Davis said. “For years, anal sex has had a bad reputation; it speaks well for the open-mindedness of Americans that it is now included as a healthy part of sexuality.”

Additionally, the survey revealed that of adults who engage in anal sex, only 2.2 percent always include anal sex, while 7.6 percent include it often and 26.6 percent said that perform the act only occasionally.

“Adam & Eve encourages American adults to get the facts on anal sex before adding it to their sexual activity,” Davis said. “We also promote a healthy, open attitude toward all types of lovemaking between consensual adults, and are pleased to see anal sex is an acceptable part of lovemaking for a number of adults.”

Conducted by Cvent, the survey was sponsored by Adam & Eve to study sexual preferences and practices.
