They are sexually active and are good with contraception. These two factors characterize the 14–17 and 18–25-year-olds today. Cultural differences exist depending on background.

Sexual and social relationships among 19­–25-year-old male and female students

The sexual and relationship behaviour of young, academically educated men and women is the focal point of the current study. Commissioned by the BZgA, the Institut für Sexualforschung und Forensische Psyiatrie at the University Clinic Hamburg-Eppendorf is examining the reproductive behaviour as well as the effects of the ‘new media’ on the sexual socialization of young, highly educated adults.

Work and a desire for children, contraception and family planning, reconciliation problems and deferring starting a family: are these all women’s issues?
