ADAMEVE.COM ASKS: WHO SHOULD TEACH TEENS ABOUT SEX?

Hillsborough, NC — When it comes to sex, adameve.com, America’s most trusted source for adult products, isn’t afraid to ask the tough questions. This month, they’re back with new results from their annual sex survey, where they asked over 1,000 adults who should teach teens about sex.

While 22% of the respondents feel that sex education should come solely from parents or guardians, only 2% of those surveyed believe that teens should receive their sex education in school alone. The majority, 76% of the respondents, said that sex education should be provided by both parents or guardians and the school system.

“The saying ‘it takes a village’ applies to sex education as well,” says Dr. Kat Van Kirk, resident sexologist for Adam & Eve. “It’s imperative that teenagers receive information from different sources and understand that each source has its own agenda… whether that is religious, cultural or social. But teens are much more astute than many people realize, and they can pull the data they need from what is provided.”

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. "Sex Chat with Dr. Kat" can be found on podcasts through iTunes or www.drkat.com. Her book, “The Married Sex Solution: A Realistic Guide to Saving Your Sex Life,” can be found on Amazon.com.
