ISELIN, N.J. – LifeStyles’ SKYN, the No. 1 non-latex premium condom brand, announces today the results of their annual sex and intimacy survey designed to analyze the behaviors, attitudes and preferences of sexually active Gen Z and millennials. Findings from the 2020 SKYN Sex & Intimacy Survey uncover Gen Z and millennial’s differing perspectives on intimate experiences – the before, during and after.

Committed to strengthening intimacy and sexual encounters, SKYN Condoms, discovers how sexually active adults engage in foreplay, sex…and even cuddling. With the companies’ recent expansion of product offerings that cover all of the phases of intimacy; from intimate accessories and paraben-free lubricants, non-latex premium condoms and intimate refreshing wipes, the brand looks to explore consumer perception and behavior throughout these phases.

The survey unveils the below insights related to the attitudes and behaviors during sex:
