Researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine analyzed data from 34, people aged 16 to 44 about their sex lives and found that nearly a third of men and women had no sex in the last month. Fewer than half the men and women in the study have sex at least once a week. The decline is most prevalent among the over 25 set, as well as married couples or unmarried couples who cohabitate, according to the study published Tuesday in the peer-reviewed journal BMJ.
