The Truth About Our Sex Lives: What, When & Who We’re Doing

In 2019 we looked into how much sex Aussies are really having, after Mamamia spoke to 1000 women about their private lives and fantasies. 

But since then the world has changed dramatically, so we conducted another survey in 2021 to find out what impact the events of the past 18 months have had on us and our partners in the bedroom.

The Quicky speaks to Mamamia's Evening Editor to find out what's changed since last time, and a sex therapist to consider whether our darkest desires for sexual pleasure are healthy or cause for concern.
