University of Indiana Sex Study

The University of Indiana recently published its findings in the most comprehensive sex study that has been conducted in years. The National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior surveyed the sexual experiences and condom usage of nearly 6,000 people from the ages of 14-90. Some interesting findings:

  • People over the age of 40 were least likely to use a condom of all the age groups.
  • 85% of men report that their partner had an orgasm in their last sexual encounter, but only 64% of women claim that they did indeed have an orgasm. (There’s a pretty big discrepancy here, guys.)
  • Condom usage didn’t inhibit the sexual pleasure of most adults.

Are you surprised to learn that adults over 40 are the least likely to use a condom?  Thoughts?

    The news made a big deal about the study when it first came out. Especially the condom usage among adults. But what I found interesting (and although I have heard a lot of press on the news about th results of the study, no one commented on this aspect) the acts that fall into the “same sex” variety fall below the much touted “10% of the population are gay” stat. Re-inforces the inaccuracy of that stat. Follow the link to the article and then click to see the chart.
    Or am I just reading it all wrong.
