Adameve.com Asks: Should Same-Sex Couples Be Allowed To Adopt?

When it comes to sex, adameve.com, America's most trusted source for adult products, isn't afraid to ask the tough questions. This month, they're back with new results from their annual sex survey, where they asked over 1,000 adults how they felt about gay and lesbian couples adopting a child.

While 12% of the respondents (12% of the women and 13% of the men) admitted they weren't sure how they felt, and 14% (9% of the women and 20% of the men) said they did not think gays and lesbians should adopt, an overwhelming 73% (79% of the women and 67% of the men) believe that same-sex couples should be able to adopt a child.

Although it has been legal for same-sex couples to adopt in all 50 states since 2016, many LGBT couples still face discrimination from fostering or adopting children in America.

"The purpose of Adam & Eve's annual sex survey is to gauge changing sexual attitudes and values with American adults," says Chad Davis, Director of Marketing for Adam & Eve. "Adameve.com carries a wide variety of products for adults in all stages and types of relationships. From toys to games and novelties, Adam & Eve is a judgment-free retail space for everyone."

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.
