Australia: More Than Half of Sex Survey Respondents Didn’t Confess STD
July 18, 2007
In its annual sex survey, the women's magazine Cleo reported that 55 percent of respondents who had contracted an STD said they did not tell their past or present sexual partners. Ninety percent of respondents said they had failed to use a condom during sex at some point. Among the 400 respondents, the top five fears related to sex were pregnancy, contracting an STD, contracting HIV, poor performance, and emotional attachment. Nearly half the men and 64 percent of women said they were faithful to their partners.
