Adam & Eve, purveyor of adult sex products, asked over 1,000 adults if they felt transgender individuals should use public restrooms that match the gender they were assigned at birth.
While 30% of the respondents (24% of the women and 38% of the men) felt that transgender people should be required to use the restroom that matches their assigned birth gender, 48% of those polled (55% of the women and 43% of the men) said transgender individuals should use the restroom that matches their identity. Twenty-one percent of the respondents (22% of the women and 19% of the men) said they were unsure.
Dr. Jenni Skyler, Adam & Eve's resident sexologist, finds these number encouraging. "I'm grateful for the 18 states, plus Washington D.C., that have bathroom bills inclusive of transgender individuals," said Skyler. "I'm hopeful for the other 32 to follow suit. It is my opinion that every human on this planet is entitled to the right to safety in both public and private spheres."
"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.
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.
