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.

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.

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.
