EN: The Lancet was not afraid to ask and made a series about sexual and reproductive health public. Unfortunately the articles are only available with a subscription but the free podcast gives already a good impression about the series. Many topics are covered including sexual transmitted diseases, contraception, abortion and general sexual behaviour. Some surprising findings contradict the usual expectations (previous studies). For example it seems that promiscuous behaviour cannot be blamed for the higher rate of sexual transmitted diseases in developing countries. Another result is that the average age at which people have sex the first time is not decreasing.
