More Partners, Less Sex: How Sex is Changing in Britain

September 23, 2016 by Justin Lehmiller

In what ways have people’s sex lives changed in the last twenty years? Results from the third National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal-3) offers some insight, at least in terms of how things have changed for folks in Britain. In the infographic below, data from the Natsal-3 are compared to data from earlier versions of this survey, and they suggest that British people today seem to be having sex with larger numbers of people, but they are doing it less often. Check out the infographic below for a closer look at these and other findings.

For more information on the Natsal-3, including the latest research publications based on these data, check out their website.
