Researchers at the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) and at the EMNID research institute have launched a survey on “Health and Sexuality in Germany” funded by the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA), a press release said Monday (November 5, 2018). Around 5,000 adults aged 18 to 75 years throughout Germany are being interviewed from October 2018 to April 2019 to collect comprehensive, basic data on relationships, experiences and sexual attitudes.
Three-year research project
“A key research focus of the study will be the dissemination of knowledge about sexually transmitted infections and related sexual practices. The results should help to develop prevention, prevention and care measures in sexual health,” said Prof. Dr. Peer Briken, Director of the UKE Institute for Sexual Research and Forensic Psychiatry.
Provisional results in 2019
Interviewees are being asked to describe their previous experiences with love, sexuality and partnerships. The survey also includes questions about sexual desires and related problems, sexually transmitted diseases and about general health. The first results should be available by late 2019.
