Are you happy to talk about sex, romance, relationships and sexual health? If so, and you’re over 60, then perhaps you would like to share your views.
The Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health & Society (ARCSHS) at La Trobe University, The National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) and the University of Sheffield have just launched the first national survey on the sexual and romantic relationships and sexual health of Australians aged 60 and over: Sex, Age & Me. This study will make an important contribution towards improving the health and wellbeing of older Australians, and will inform policy and practice in this area.
The project team has recently begun recruitment for a survey. If you’re aged 60 years or older, are living in Australia, and are fluent in English your can take part in the survey at sexagemesurvey.org.au. The survey is open to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities and will take about 40 minutes to complete.
