Adam & Eve Survey Asks 'What Day Do You Prefer to Have Sex?'

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C.—Adam & Eve and have released the results of  a new survey that compares results to the same question they asked 10 years ago: What day of the week do you prefer to have sex?

While much has changed in 10 years, it’s not surprising that most adults still choose to have sex over the weekend. In 2011, 30 percent of the respondents preferred Saturdays for lovemaking while 35 percent of 2021’s respondents did. Friday was the next popular day, with 22 percent in 2011 compared to 23 percent in 2021. Sundays were more popular in 2011, with 20 percent of those polled favoring it versus 11 percent in 2021.

The results were as follows:

Preferred Days   2011 percentages    2021 percentages   

Monday                      13                     9    
Tuesday                     12                      9
Wednesday                14                     6
Thursday                    13                     6
Friday                         22                     23
Saturday                     30                    35
Sunday                       20                    12

While 2011’s respondents could choose multiple days, more than 60 percent of those polled in both 2011 and 2021 said they have no preference when it comes to which day they choose to have sex.

Dr. Jenni Skyler, resident sexologist at Adam & Eve, believes that down time on the weekends can contribute to more sex. “Couples need to make time for their relationships—whether it’s a lazy Sunday afternoon or a quick romp on a Wednesday night—it’s important to find the time to be intimate.”

Chad Davis, marketing director for Adam & Eve, adds, “When it comes to sex, most American adults are happy to make time in their busy schedules. Adam & Eve offers many products to enhance the experience ... whether it’s a stolen weekday afternoon or an entire romantic weekend.

The web-based survey from Adam & Eve was conducted by an independent third party survey company, with more than 1,000 American respondents, age 18 and up.
