Romanian men hold they had a median number of 17 female sex partners, while their female counterparts say they had sexual relations with a median number of six men, Mediafax reported, quoting the findings of a Durex study released by eponymous condom manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser. The median number of sexual partners reported by Romanian men is on par with that of their British or German counterparts, and higher than the Russians’, 15, and the Dutch, 12. Furthermore, one in five Romanian men (21 pc) and 12 pc of the women engaged in a steady relationship admit having cheated on their partner. Also, 6 pc of Romanian sexually active men say they have three or more concurrent sexual relationships. The Durex global study was conducted to mark the World AIDS Day, with its results based on online questionnaires filled out by people from 35 countries and personal interviews. The study also reveals that nearly 6 in ten Romanians (56 pc), men and women, did not use any means of protection against sexually transmitted diseases when they had sex for the first time. Reckitt Benckiser officials for the Balkans say Romanians only use a median of one condom a year, twice fewer than their Hungarian counterparts and seven times below the UK median.
