The survey was funded by Church & Dwight Co. Inc., makers of Trojan condoms, and was conducted by a team at Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion.

Using Internet questionnaires, the researchers surveyed almost 6,000 teens and adults ranging in age from 14 to 94.

  • Men and women usually engage in more than one sex act during a single sexual encounter.
