Regular readers of this blog know that Ab and I tend to enjoy sex in the early morning. I don’t know if it’s a function of age or what, but I usually feel so exhausted in the evening that I am often not in the mood. Even when we do like to fool around at night, I find it difficult to have an orgasm–maybe I’m thinking too much about falling asleep and not able to relax! Either way, I thought this press release that came across my desk was interesting.


HILLSBOROUGH, N.C., July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Adam & Eve and AdamAndEve.com, (http://adamandeve.com/news), America’s most trusted source for adult products, are back with the latest results from their Great American Sex Survey. This time, they’ve asked what time of day adults prefer to have sex.

Not surprisingly, most adults (52%) prefer to have sex during evening hours, followed by late night (47%), morning (33%) and afternoon (21%). What is interesting is that even though these are the preferred times to make love, the respondents said they actually have sex mostly during late night hours (48%), followed by evening (45%), morning (26%) and afternoon (13%).

Dr. Kat Van Kirk, Adam & Eve’s resident sex expert, attributes this differentiation between “preferring” and “doing” to the realities of daily life. Dr. Kat says, “If we were to examine our natural biorhythms, hormonally our highest time for arousal is early morning for men and afternoon for women. Unfortunately, sometimes people have sex because of their schedules… not when their bodies are actually most receptive.”

“Adam & Eve has a large line of products to help couples get in the mood for sex,” says Chad Davis, Marketing Director for Adam & Eve. “From sensual lubricants to romantic games, we offer a huge variety of items to enhance the lovemaking experience for both partners.”

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.
