Sex and statistics
It's Monday morning, and there's a long week ahead of us. So let's talk about sex.
Ahem. Maybe I should rephrase that. I'm not just being salacious, I'm actually referring to the results, published over the weekend, of The Observer's 2008 Sex Poll, which includes some very interesting statistics about attitudes to sex and disability.
A sample of 1,044 UK adults aged 16-plus were interviewed in September 2008. Of these, 70%. One of the questions they were asked was: Have you ever had sex with someone with a physical disability?
- 70% said No, and I don't think I would.
- 26% said No, but I would not rule it out.
- 4% said Yes
Oh, and men are slightly more likely than women to rule out the possibility.
The question is, Ouchers: do these figures seem to reflect your own personal experiences?
