ISELIN, N.J., July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennials are closing the orgasm gap according to a national study conducted by Ansell, a global leader in protection solutions and the makers of LifeStyles® and SKYN® Condoms ("SKYN"). Recognized as the manufacturer of two of the nation's leading condom brands, Ansell is debuting the results of the 2015 SKYN Condoms Millennial Sex Survey, which reveals the encouraging finding that millennial females are achieving orgasm nearly as often as men during sex.

Slippery Slope: Millennials are using lubricants more now than they did in past years, with 43 percent reporting lubricant usage as part of their sexual routine.

The 2015 SKYN Condoms Millennial Sex Survey reveals the habits, preferences and desires of sexually active millennials across the U.S., including information about favorite positions, preferred partner attributes, likely locations for sex, online and mobile dating trends, and much more. Additional findings include:

Naughty Behavior: Millennials have found new ways to engage in sexual behavior on their mobile phones. A staggering 57 percent of millennials report having sexted, with 7 percent sexting daily and 11 percent sexting several times per week. Also, 49 percent of millennials send naked pictures on their mobile phones, with 25 percent specifically sending pictures via Snapchat.

Sixty-six percent of millennials with a Doctoral degree and 65 percent of those with a Professional degree reported using condoms, compared to 44 percent of those with a high school diploma. Notably, 58 percent of millennials currently enrolled at a university report using condoms.

Sex vs. Tech: A staggering 37 percent of millennials claim they would give up sex for a year rather than give up the Internet.

Celebrity Hall Pass: Adam Levine and Megan Fox are the celebrities that millennials would most want to have sex with. For women, a close second was Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Gosling, and for men, Scarlett Johansson and Emma Watson.

Surf's Up: Of respondents that participate in a variety of sports and recreational activities, those that identified as surfers tend to play it the safest outside of the water, with 75 percent reporting they use condoms regularly.

Birthday Sex: Birthdays are the occasion marked with the most sex with a reported 79 percent of millennials having sex on a birthday followed by Valentine's Day with 73 percent.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.
