On Popular Demand, Monogamy Rules The Roost!
A global survey targeted to comprehend sexual behaviors of human beings has found that concerns over the rise in pre-marital sex in the present day are unfounded. Monogamy is still held in esteem and very much in demand. The results of this survey are published in The Lancet.

The research has gathered details from 59 countries, which found that people were in single relationships and the likelihood of live-in relationships and marriage figured on their wish-list.

These findings support the latest information enabled by the Office of National Statistics, which was published recently, that reiterated the monogamous nature of the British society, despite soaring rates of sexually transmitted disease (STDs) and teenage pregnancies.

The authors said "Most people are married, and married people have the most sex. Sexual activity among young single people tends to be sporadic, but is greater in industrialized countries."

Kaye Wellings, of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, the lead-researcher, said: "In Britain, the average age at which people lose their virginity is 16 for both men and women. The latest estimates suggest 12.5 per cent of boys and 6.9 per cent of girls have had sex before the age of 15, but these figures may be skewed by the tendency of boys to exaggerate sexual activity."
