Adult products company Adamandeve.com informs about adults’ sexual habits. This month, the company asked over 1,000 men and women at what age they started sexting.
While just over 35% of Americans admit to sexting (sending sexually explicit photographs or messages via cell phone), most (32%) say they started between ages 19 and 29.
Twenty-seven percent say they started sexting between ages 30 and 40, and 22% started at 40 or older. Only 18% of sexters are between 15 and 18, which many parents will find reassuring.

“Sexting can be a fun, naughty way to flirt,” says Dr. Kat Van Kirk, resident sexpert for adamandeve.com. “Many people use sexting as a way to stay connected when they have to be apart… or as a way to spice up a relationship in a surprising way. For underage sexters, I just say ‘don’t.’ But because that’s not realistic, I encourage anyone who sexts to protect their privacy by not including their faces in images or video.”

“Adam & Eve encourages adults to explore their sexuality in a safe, positive way,” says adamandeve.com director of Marketing Chad Davis. “For individuals who do not wish to engage in sexting, we offer a wide variety of products to liven up any relationship.”
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.
