Asks 'Do You Engage in Dirty Talk During Sex?'

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C.Adam & Eve is back with the latest statistics from an all-new survey, comparing the results from 10 years ago on the question: Do you engage in “dirty talk” during sex?

Based on the latest poll, adults aren’t partaking in dirty talk quite as much as they used to. In 2011, 12 percent of the respondents said they always talked dirty during sex, while 11 percent of 2021’s respondents did. Over 38 percent of those surveyed in 2011 said they sometimes engaged in dirty talk, compared to 31 percent in 2021. And 29 percent of those polled in 2011 said they rarely talked dirty, while 20 percent admitted they did in 2021. In addition, 18 percent of the respondents in 2011 said they never engaged in dirty talk, compared to 20 percent of those polled in 2021.

Dr. Jenni Skyler, resident sexologist at Adam & Eve, believes these figures may be representative of our current culture. “While using dirty talk in the bedroom can be fun and exciting, many people tend to engage in lovemaking for comfort and reconnection during times of heightened stress,” Skyler says. “During uncertain times, couples often prefer intimacy—more eye contact, skin-on-skin stimulation and cuddling—to rougher, more aerobic sex.”

Chad Davis, marketing director for Adam & Eve, adds, “When it comes to sex, Adam & Eve offers a wide variety of products to enhance any encounter.”

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.
