47% of Millennial Women Feel Empowered When They Please Themselves Sexually

Epi24, creators of the Womanizer (www.womanizershop.com), the clitoral stimulator that produces orgasms in 60 seconds or less, today unveiled findings from a consumer survey that indicates millennial women are embracing sex-positive attitudes toward the usage of sex toys. ‘Sex positive’ refers to maintaining a healthy attitude toward sex, while embracing safe sex through education.

The survey, conducted online in October by Harris Poll on behalf of epi24, asked over 2,000 U.S. adults to rate a series of statements related to sex toy usage. Millennial women between the ages 18and 34 appear to be more agreeable than older women to the benefits of sex toys and are more likely to say that they feel empowered by sexual self-satisfaction.

  • 71% of women age 18-34 agree that sex toys can add intimacy in the bedroom, compared to only 40% of women age 45 and older.
  • 67% of women age 18-34 agree that using a sex toy can help a person know their body better, compared to 40% of women age 45 and older.
  • 47% of women age 18-34 agree that they feel empowered when pleasing themselves sexually compared to 29% of women age 45 and older.

“Our research suggests that millennial women are more comfortable than their older peers with using sex toys to explore their sexuality,” said Alicia Sinclair, Director of Education, and In-House Intimacy Expert forepi24. “We’re entering a new era where women are no longer shy or hesitant to use sex toys. Whetherthat’s due to box office hits such as 50 Shades of Grey or changes in social norms, it’s a great time for women to discover their sensual desires.

Only a small portion of American women agree that they feel selfish pleasing themselves sexually–just 15% among women age 18-54 and 8% among those age 55+.
“The fact that only a small percentage of women feel selfish about pleasing themselves sexually is definitely reassuring. The benefits of doing so are vast. Women can learn more about their bodies and their personal sexual response gain greater self-awareness, and ultimately, build a deeper sense of understanding and self-confidence,” said Sinclair.

Survey Methodology
