Britons start sex young and experiment into old age

By Kate Kelland, Health and Science Correspondent LONDON (Reuters) – Britons are having sex from their teens until well into their 70s and experimenting with experiences and techniques once dismissed as deviant, according to a major series of scientific studies of sexual behavior. “People are working very very hard, they are very busy,” said Kaye Wellings of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, when asked why she thought people had reported a drop off in average frequency. “We need to start thinking about sex differently – sexual health is not merely the absence of disease, but the ability to have pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free from coercion,” said Wellings, who co-led the series and presented the findings at a briefing in London. Improving the quality of people’s sexual experiences and relationships was also important for their broader health, the researchers added.
