HILLSBOROUGH, N.C., June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Do you remember the first time you saw an X-rated movie? This month, AdamAndEve.com (http://www.adamandeve.com/news), America's most trusted source for adult products, asked over 1,000 adults what age they were when they saw their first adult movie.
For men, the answers varied from ages of 5 to 85, with the most (13%) stating they were 18 years old. Nearly the same amount (12.9% and 12%, respectively) admitted they were 16 and 15 when they viewed their first adult content. And 11.6% said they were 12 years of age when they saw their first XXX movie.
Of the women who admitted watching adult content, 16.6% said they viewed their first explicit content when they were 18, followed by 11.8% at 16 years of age and 9.1% at 15. The ages ranged from 6 to 48.
AdamAndEve.com's resident sexpert, Dr. Kat Van Kirk, doesn't find these results surprising. "Humans have an innate curiosity about sex," says Dr. Kat. "Of course, there is a reason adult videos are not supposed to be available to children under 18… but with that said, I'm encouraged that the average viewing age appears to be in line with that."
"Adam & Eve goes to great measures to make sure its adult content represents a healthy image of sexuality and is available to adults ages 18 and over," says AdamAndEve.com Director of Marketing Chad Davis. "Whether our customers prefer to order a DVD through our catalog or website, or watch Adam & Eve's video-on-demand channel, they can rest assured the content is sex positive."
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 new book, "12 Minute Sex Solution: A Realistic Guide to Married Sex," can be found on Amazon.com.
