||Hillsborough, NC ‹ Whether it is bragged or whispered about, or awkward or embarrassing, your first time is always memorable. A recent study by Adam & Eve shows that for most folks, however, it is a positive experience.
Adam & Eve, the most trusted name in adult entertainment, recently asked over 1,000 American adults to rate their first sexual experience on a scale from one to ten. Surprisingly, nearly 70% of the respondents rated their first experience as "alright" to "amazing."
The survey revealed that only 30% of respondents selected the answer options zero through five, meaning that around 1/3 of respondents had a less than ideal first sexual experience.
The single largest response (28%) was that the first experience was "alright." An additional 31% of respondents rated their first experience as better than "alright," while only 7% of respondents rated their first experience with sexual intercourse as "amazing." (Of the 82 respondents who had an "amazing" first experience, 90% were men.)
Because sexual curiosity is part of human nature, Adam & Eve, the nation's most respected name in adult entertainment, recently commissioned Cvent, the event management and web survey software company, to launch a sex survey determining Americans' sexual practices, and the results are surprising.
"Because the average ratings are overwhelmingly positive, we feel Americans are becoming much more educated, and therefore, comfortable, in all aspects of sex," says Katy Zvolerin, Adam & Eve Director of Public Relations. "While the typical American (31% of the males and 30% of the females) admits to having their first sexual experience at age 17 or 18, the study shows that this rite of passage can also be a healthy one."
The web-based survey, conducted by Cvent, of over 1,000 American adults age 18 and up, was sponsored by Adam & Eve to study sexual preferences and practices. For more information about Adam & Eve, visit their website at http://www.adamandeve.com/news.
