Sexuality - Statistics & Facts

More than half of all adult single Americans have had a one-night-stand at least once in their lives – a slightly higher percentage than those who have had unprotected sex with someone whose health history and background they did not know. Regarding the number of sexual partners in a lifetime, Americans are slightly above the global average, earning them a solid 13th rank out of more than 30 selected countries.


With progressing age, condom usage among American men is decreasing, however, the condom usage rate of male teenagers is remarkably high. Fortunately, condom usage and safer sex have led to a significant decrease in infections with dangerous sexually transmitted diseases since the Nineties. The numbers of syphilis infections and HIV fatalities are both continuously declining. Not surprisingly, almost 90 percent of Americans consider birth control usage morally acceptable, and the majority of Americans think that employers should provide the appropriate health care plans covering contraception and birth control.
