ADAMANDEVE.COM ASKS: WOULD YOU BE OPEN TO DATING SOMEONE WHO IS HIV POSITIVE?

Hillsborough, NC — Adamandeve.com (http://www.adameve.com), America’s most trusted source for adult products, is back this month with new results from its annual sex survey. This time, the company asked over 1,000 adults if they would be open to having a relationship with someone who is HIV positive, and the responses they got may surprise you.

Only 6% of those polled saying they would be open to having a relationship with an HIV+ individual, while 78% of the respondents said they were not open to it and 16% said they were undecided.

Of these, more men than women (8% versus 5%) were open to a relationship with an HIV+ partner, while 19% of the women versus 13% of the men were unsure.

“HIV, or the human immunodeficiency virus, is a sexually transmitted infection that, if left untreated, can cause AIDS,” explains adamandeve.com sexpert Dr. Kat Van Kirk. “With around 1.2 million Americans now living with HIV, and advances in medical treatment, you would think that the virus would lose much of the stigma it had for so many years. Many couples that include one HIV positive partner (sero-discordant) compare it to living with any other chronic disease with the successful use of safer sex practices.”

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.
