A recent study found that Australians are becoming more experimental and open-minded about their sexual practices. People are not just more accepting of homosexuality and premarital sex than they were 10 years ago, but they’re also actively trying to inject more spice into their bedroom romps.
The study — conducted by the University of New South Wales, La Trobe University and the University of Sydney — interviewed around twenty thousand Australians about their sexual habits. Here are some of their key findings.
Australians are having… less sex?
The study found that Australians are not as active as they were a decade ago. From having sex 1.8 times a week, they’ve dropped to 1.4 times a week. People in their twenties (and those in their 60’s) are getting more sex, but it seems a huge demographic — executives, married couples or those in long-term relationships — aren’t.
Experts analyze that internet use, and the fact that many people will “bring homework” via mobile or laptops, have affected sex lives. Many bring a phone into bed, disrupting connection and intimacy.
But they’re enjoying sex a lot more!
While they are having sex less frequently, an astounding 90% of men and 75% of women said their sex life was either “very pleasurable” or “extremely pleasurable.”
We really can’t tell how many of them were being completely honest, but we are noticing that they’re more open to trying new things in the bedroom. Aside from oral sex (tried by at least 86% of the survey respondents), 25% of them have reported trying anal sex. Interestingly, most of the people who reported trying anal sex were between the ages of 30 to 49. A great deal more discreetly pursues other sexual interests by booking an Australian private escort who can indulge requests such as fetishes, BDSM or light bondage, or threesomes. Other couples invite escorts to join them.
“We’re entering a more exploratory, diverse time,” researchers said.
