New survey on sex in US

Researchers say the largest, most comprehensive national survey of Americans' sexual behavior since 1994 suggests everything looks pretty normal.

Filling 130 pages of a special issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the study offers detailed findings on how often Americans have sex, with whom, and how they respond.

Among the findings was a high rate of condom usage among 14- to 17-year-olds. Another intriguing finding - rates of condom usage among black and Hispanic men were significantly higher than for whites, suggesting HIV-AIDS awareness programs are making headway.

The lowest condom usage rates were for men over 50 - and the researchers said this was worrisome, since an increasing number of older adults had multiple sexual partners.
