Asks, 'Have You Ever Sexted Someone?'

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C.—Adam & Eve and are back with the latest statistics from an all-new survey that asks adults about their "sexting" habits. 

Sexting, or the sending and receiving of sexually explicit photos, messages, or videos on mobile devices, is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away. Compared with Adam & Eve’s survey results from 10 years ago, adults seem to have embraced the virtual habit.

When asked if they engaged in sexting, 42 percent of the respondents admitted they had, compared to only 17 percent in 2011. While 46 percent of those polled said they did not sext, that is significantly lower than the 56 percent polled in 2011 who said they did not. Additionally, 12 percent of recent respondents preferred not to answer, versus only 2 percent in 2011.

Adam & Eve sexologist Dr. Jenni Skyler says, "Sexting can be a fun, flirty way to let your significant other know you are thinking of them during the day or when you are separated by distance. As a method of foreplay, sexting can set the mood and let your partner know exactly what’s on your mind. I encourage sexting participants to remember that naughty photos and fantasies don’t take the place of consent or communication."

Adam & Eve marketing director Chad Davis adds, "Adam & Eve offers a wide variety of products that fit any fantasy and comfort level—from mild to wild."

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