Most Americans prefer having sex in the evening, a new research by Adam & Eve and AdamAndEve.com has revealed.
The Great American Sex Survey shows that 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.”
