The 2011 Playboy Sex Survey: Reader Survey:

Thirty years ago, we polled 65,396 male and 14,928 female readers of Playboy about their sexual habits. This year we repeated the survey so we could compare sex today with sex at the dawn of the digital age. With the help of Harris Interactive, we collected responses from 8,002male and 2,001female visitors to Playboy.com, the results of which were weighted to reflect the demographic of the average Playboy reader. Harris also presented the survey to 2,310 adults who aren't necessarily Playboy readers, to represent the average American.

**First time with a vibrator...awesome!

Last time I had sex was with my ex boyfriend. We were at his parent's house and he just happened to hit the right spot and we both got kind of loud. it was probably the second best sex I've had.

I had sex with my best friend who I am in love with but he doesn't know it. It was amazing.

The last time I had sex I orgasmed for the first time in months. I hardly ever orgasm becuase I am on antidepressants. I was on top facing him. I usually orgasm in my sleep.

My boyfriend came home and his mom went to church he was so in control demanding and so sexy he chased me up stairs and took off my clothes and his and fooled around for a while then we had the best sex we have ever had.

My current partner and I had been chatting on IM all morning. He kept begging me to come home (he lives right next door) and was describing what he wanted to do to me. Finally I couldn't take it anymore and left early for lunch from work.

My husband and I had amazing sex two nights in a row for his birthday. I was on top both times.

Horrible. Current boyfriend might have ED but is too proud to admit it. I don't get off and he barely does. Lots of cuddling which I'm not opposed to but dear god I really want some rough satisfying sex.

I was at the kitchen sink in my nightgown and my husband rubbed against me so I lifted my gown (no panties) and he dropped his boxers and he took me from behind. I was so wet. I orgasmed almost instantly.

We were in the room with a candle lit. My boyfriend was on the bed looking up music. He has his zune list pulled up. He played "Sexual Seduction" and I did a strip tease for him. He got to the point where he couldnt handle it so while watching me he started to pull his shirt off. I pulled his pants down and it went from there.

Had sex a month ago with a guy that is not my husband. (husband is out of the country for long periods of time--we have an agreement that we can have sex with another person while separated as long as it is just sex and protection is used). Partner is a friend from work and 8 years older than me. We had sex for a few hours it was fun but I like sex with my husband better. Although it did help take off the edge on being horny. Don't regret the act itself but I do feel kind of guilty about it being with my friend because I had assured my husband that i would not have sex with this man.

it was a quickie...which unfortunately is the way it is when your hubby wakes up at 4 am and is in bed at night before your kids...lol

I told my husband I wanted a divorce after 5 years of marriage...I cried the whole time we had sex and he said it was the first time he had ever made love to me.

Amazing! Very rough sex including choking (hands around throat) and pulling hair. Starting with him behind me moving to me on top then to him on top then to doggy then on the couch then standing then him holding me up while he was standing then me on top again facing away from him then towards him ending with me laying on my stomach and him on top. I orgasmed twice.

in the back of a car in a church parking lot during a first date

I last had sex about 2 days ago. I had shaved my vagina & it's always soaking after I shave:) I went into my hubby's "man room" and told him to feel inside my pants. He took me right into the room & started licking away & sucking on my tits....feels so good when I had an orgasm and my cum was all over his face...then he fucked me hard!!!

This morning with husband he woke me up needing release. He's really good at oral and I work at staying turned on by him. He knows I prefer sex with my black lover.

We said "wanna have sex?"...then we did.

Quickie in the mall parking lot before shopping. I stripped nude in the back seat in broad daylight! Felt really excited with the possibility of being seen.

It was with my boyfriend at night before we fell asleep at his house. It was amazing as usual and reaffirmed my belief that sex is so much better and more amazing when it's with someone you care about. When there are real emotions involved sex becomes that much more intense and amazing.

I wasn't able to fall asleep so I decided to tire myself by having sex with a friend at the time.

I had just come home from work while our 2 year old daughter was napping. My husband was resting on our bed I came in undid his pants and started sucking his dick. Then I climbed on top facing him. I love our time during nap time it feels very intimate.

so earlier today i had sex it was a quickie my partner and i both had class so we had sex on the couch and it was really nice he came all in my ass and it was fantastic.

it was hurried but very hot my husband had been out over the road for too long and i NEEDED sex.we went quietly into a bedroom as soon as it looked like the kids were actually gone for their walk and he laid me on my back with my head hanging over the side and inserted his cock into my mouth and i gave him oral upside down while he fingered me.then he flipped me up and around and we did it doggy style.very satisfying and hot because we didnt know if we would get interupted or caught or not.

The last time I had sex it was a dud.. It was a while before I had sex and it lasted a good 10 minutes because my partner was drunk. It felt good because he went down on me but it wasn't long enough to satisfy me.

The last time was over a month ago. My husband sat me on the side of the bed took my clothes off and fifteen minutes later he was getting dressed to go out with his friends.

I had sex a few hours ago as a sub dressed in a maid outfit and i came 3 times. I gave him oral sex.

The last time I had sex was about 8 months ago with my ex boyfriend. We had just broken up about a month before but decided to go to prom together. It happened afterwards and it didn't feel right. We had sex in his truck and because of the break up and the pain we didn't have the same connection.
