III. Methodology And Limitations
To collect the data shown above, we surveyed 1008 respondents in the United States who have been in a relationship in which they share a bed with their partner. An attention-checker question was included to ensure the participants did not mindlessly answer questions.
Because the survey relies on self-reporting, issues such as telescoping and exaggeration can influence responses. Please also note that this survey’s results do not reflect our opinions.
