Adamandeve.com (http://www.adamandeve.com/news), America’s most trusted source for adult products, is back this month with the latest findings in its sex survey results. When the company asked over 1,000 adults if they would be open to having a relationship with someone transgendered, the responses they got may surprise you.

While 65% of those polled said they would not be open to having a relationship with a transgendered individual, 12% of the respondents said they were open to it and 23% said they were undecided.

Of these, more women than men (14% versus 10%) were open to a relationship with a transgendered partner, while 28% of the women versus 18% of the men were unsure.

“Transgender is defined as someone whose gender identity assigned at birth is not congruent with the gender they identify as,” explains Dr. Kat Van Kirk, adamandeve.com’s resident sexpert. “While the latest studies have shown only .3 percent of the population identifies as transgender, it’s a hot topic right now and has definitely gotten people talking about what it means to them. As it turns out, gender, like sexual orientation, may exist more on a spectrum than we once believed.”

“Adam & Eve encourages healthy sexuality between consenting adults,” says adamandeve.com Director of Marketing Chad Davis. “Although people generally associate adamandeve.com with women and couples, our products cross gender lines… after all, sex is something for every adult to enjoy.”

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.

  1. What a horrible article trying to reduce human psychosexuality to an abstract socio-political concept. Human psychosexuality doesn’t adapt to socio-political beliefs no matter how hard some people try (ex: conservative gay people trying to live straight).

    Just because some egalitarian thinks that they would be comfortable with this as an abstract socio-political concept doesn’t mean they would when being physical with a real world transgender person. People that socio-politically despise transgender people often find themselves attracted to a real world transgender person and violently lash out at them for “tricking” them into sexually behaving against their bigoted beliefs. This is a huge cause of violence against transgender people.

    What a dangerous and irresponsible article that assumes the ability to abstract sexuality is a unique exception when it involves transgender people.
