How much do Australians know about sex? Sex survey results will blow your mind—LITERALLY!

Jaw dropping results of a national sex survey shows Australians still need to learn a thing or two about sex. And the results are going to leave you scratching your head and wondering what the actual hell!?
The sexy survey was carried out by
NORMAL.com, a certified sex coach aspiring to educate Australians (and the results prove that sadly as a national we really do need to be better educated. Seriously, who doesn’t know how pregnancy occurs!? 1000 participants between the ages of 18 to 90 answered a series of questions based on their sexual knowledge.

The results of the sex survey begs the question: What the hell are they actually teaching high school students in SexEd? Believe it or not, out of the 1000 Aussies who took part in the research, they weren't listening in class or when their parents taught them about the birds and the bees because (and you might want to sit down for this…)

25% of women and 48% of men aged 24 years and under reported they weren’t taught how pregnancy occurs. And if that sex statistic doesn’t blow your mind,9 in 10 didn’t learn the difference between porn and real sex.

Even more importantly, when it comes to consentual sex, education is sadly lacking as well. This doesn’t bode well for preventing a rape culture. Disturbingly, NORMAL sex survey found that educational institutes are failing when it comes teaching to respectful relationships. Only 26% of females understood the legal rights and obligations regarding consentual sex, while only 34% of males were more informed.

In addition to those shocking results, the sex survey not only highlighted the need for further sex eduation, but it also revealed insight into the sexual tastes of Australians. So what do Australians like behind closed doors? It won't come as any surprise that the survey highlighted women prefer the lights out and males want the lights on. Who needs a survey to point out that? But what you will find surprising is that while Gen Z (under 24 years of age) and Millenials (born between 1981-1996) may not have been educated on how pregnancy occurs,  but29% of Gen Z and 33% of Millennials having bought or used a sex toy.  Approximately, a third of Baby boomers and Gen Z have experimented with fetish play or kink.

At Sexy Secrets, we have decided it’s time to put sex under the spotlight and help educate Australians on having a healthy sex life and embrace sexual preferences with a great range of sex toys, items for fetish play and kink. It’s time for sex to be celebrated and not something that’s clandestine.

It is our aim to make you feel comfortable when you shop in store. There’s no need to be embarrassed and no question is too silly—absolutely no judgment. Our staff believe sex is a healthy and normal part of life no matter what your sexual preferences or personal fetishes.
