Money, youth and sex

Comprehensive new research from Relationships Australia touched on a number of categories when it comes to sexual activity and one of the most interesting revelations was that wealthy people appear to have more sex than those in lower income categories, according to The Advertiser.

The fact is that the richer a person is, the more likely he or she is to be sexually active. Australian participants who were in households that made $80,000 or more had almost double the chance of regularly engaging in sex compared to people making $60,000 or less. Forty-four percent of those in the latter group had sex on a regular basis, while 81 percent in the former category did the same.

The real surprise may have come in the form of how much people are having sex these days. In a culture saturated with the idea and image of knocking boots and hook-up "relationships" seemingly running rampant on college campuses, one might think that sex itself may be at a zenith of popularity.

The findings of the study challenge this impression. Overall, the number of times Australians have sex seems to have dropped by 3 percent since 2008. Those aged 25 to 34 appeared to be getting the brunt of this jaded attitude toward sex. Despite their inclination toward social media and other online outlets for relationships, this age group reported being the loneliest of all. The only demographic that experienced growth in sexual activity was Australians aged 70 and over – a quarter of respondents reported having intercourse, up from 17 percent in 2008.
