At What Age Did You Start Sexting?
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.
