So how is your sex life? Would you tell?

According to a web-based survey sponsored by Adam & Eve, a retailer for adult products, when asked, "Do you share intimate details of your sex life with friends?" 30 percent of the female respondents admitted they did, while only 18 percent of the males polled said they shared intimate information with others.

The 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.

"Emotional intimacy tends to rank high among women - making it more natural for them to share information on sexual escapades than for men," explains Dr. Kat Van Kirk, resident sexpert for “Just make sure to share mutually appropriate information that is comfortable for both of you to divulge."
