Government plans to reduce waiting times for appointments at sexual health clinics in England to 48 hours cannot be met without a “massive expansion of capacity”, doctors said on Thursday.

Keeping Sexual Desire in Sync Past Midlife

Sexual HealthJan 20 06

When it comes to desire and drive for sexual intimacy, many women at midlife find they are no longer in sync with their partners.

Although many people assume that a decrease in sexual desire inevitably occurs at midlife, that’s not necessarily the case. Age has less of an impact on sexual desire than does general health and availability of a willing and able partner.

But aging does play a role, according to the Mayo Clinic Women’s HealthSource. After menopause, thinning of the vaginal tissues and decreased lubrication may cause pain or discomfort during sexual stimulation. Less hormonal flucuation in women can pose a challenge; couples need to become more creative in their lovemaking, allowing additional time and stimulation for arousal.

Canadians can have group sex in clubs

Sexual HealthDec 21 05

Group sex between consenting adults is neither prostitution nor a threat to society, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on Wednesday, dismissing arguments that the sometimes raucous activities of so-called “swingers” clubs were dangerous.

In a ruling that radically changes the way Canadian courts determine what poses a threat to the population, the court threw out the conviction of a Montreal man who ran a club where members could have group sex in a private room behind locked doors.

Sexual HealthSep 28 05

Doctors, drugmakers and health officials should take steps to curb abuse of erectile dysfunction drugs while research continues on whether use of the medicines increase the rate of HIV infections, especially among gay men, experts said in draft guidelines on Tuesday.

Research may suggest a role, but more studies are needed on how the drugs affect transmission of the virus and whether they encourage risky sexual behavior, a group of physicians, drug company representatives and patient advocates said at a government-sponsored conference near Washington.

More than half of teenage boys in a new survey said there was at least some chance they would get a girl pregnant in the near future-pointing, researchers say, to the importance of boys’ intentions and attitudes in preventing teen pregnancy.

The study, of 101 sexually experienced teenage boys treated at a California STD clinic, found that about one quarter said they intended to get someone pregnant in the next 6 months. Another third said they had no such plans, but were nonetheless likely to get a girl pregnant.

Croatia confronts sexual abuse of children

Sexual HealthJul 19 05

Croatia is coming to terms with a type of crime it never addressed under communism - the sexual abuse of children.

Several investigations undertaken by prosecutors in recent weeks show child abuse and paedophilia may be more widespread than the staunchly Roman Catholic country cares to admit.

Officials ordered inspections of state orphanages earlier this month after two girls in a state-run home in the coastal town of Pula said a cook tried to rape them.

Drinking in middle school tied to risky sex

Sexual HealthMay 06 05

Kids who begin drinking in the 7th grade are more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior in mid-adolescence - but parents can make a difference in their kids’ drinking habits, researchers have shown.

In a new study, U.S. investigators found that students who said they started drinking by the 7th grade were more likely to say they had unprotected sex, multiple partners, sex while drunk or high, or been pregnant.

In another related study, a group of researchers showed that middle-schoolers who binge drink—downing at least 5 drinks on one occasion—are more likely to binge drink in high school.
