SexySleep Tip #1- Intimacy/Sex & The Mattress Purchase

Furniture World News Desk on 5/22/2013

Tip #1:  In Leggett & Platt’s SexySleep research, the components manufacturer learned that 85% of people never consider sex when purchasing a mattress. The majority of people interviewed said intimacy/sex will be a determining factor when making their next mattress purchase, however. “During qualitative interviews, we learned that many people buy a mattress and later find out it doesn’t properly support their intimate needs. Then they’re stuck with it. As an industry, we need to do our part to ensure shoppers are considering the purchase from all angles so we have happier customers,” said Leggett & Platt’s Mark Quinn.

About The Research: The SexySleep research was commissioned by Leggett & Platt and conducted in Las Vegas by independent research group POCO Labs (random sample, n=255 U.S. men and woman 21+). The products chosen were selected in conjunction with GoodBed.com. Read more about the SexySleep research at Ultimate-Hybrid.com.
