Not everyone has sex: about 3 in 100 men and women in Australia aged between 16 and 59 have never had sex, and around one in 10 will not have had a sexual partner in the last year. These statistics are just a few of an orgy of initial findings reported from the Australian Study of Health and Relationships. The study was a quantitative survey conducted by a multidisciplinary research team; it covers a broad range of sexual and reproductive experience, including masturbation, sexual difficulties and commercial sex. Interviews with over 20 000 individuals were conducted between 1999 and 2002. More detailed reports from the study are expected.
