It’s the world’s largest sex survey: More than 2,00,000 respondents from Denmark giving a peek into their sexual habits, needs, fantasies, gender preferences and much more. The study, titled Project SEXUS, aims to establish a relationship between sexual happiness and healthy living.
“We’re launching this massive machinery with a great deal of enthusiasm but also a great deal of humility. We’re asking the public to answer some very personal questions, which they may not normally speak to other people about,” project leader Morten Frisch, a doctor in the Department for Epidemiology Research at Statens Serum Institute, Denmark, was quoted as saying in Science Nordic.
“We’re naturally excited because such an investigation has never been made in such detail before,” he added.
The respondents will be asked a range of questions, including their gender preferences, frequency, likes and dislikes, fantasies and much more. The participants are aged from 15-89 years, and the questionnaire contains 150-190 questions.
However, there is more to the study than just sex. A lot of the questions deal with interaction with other people, how much they smoke and drink (or whether they don’t), their family history, previous record of health problems and what they feel about their own bodies.
