Study Dispels Some Sexual Behavior Myths:

"We did have some of our preconceptions dashed," she said, explaining they had expected to find the most promiscuous behavior in regions like Africa with the highest rates of sexually transmitted diseases. That was not the case, as multiple partners were more commonly reported in industrialized countries where the incidence of such diseases was relatively low.

It looks like Kay Wellings has a bunch of interesting publications (oh for days and days to lounge around a half-decent university library). And The Lancet's sexual and reproductive health collection could also keep me reading for quite a while.

You mean that the incidence of sexual disease is explained more by the state of health care and poverty level in countries than by sexual promiscuity? Wow. Who could have imagined that!
