SYDNEY, Australia, 31st October 2023 - Real-time data from Australia’s largest online sexual health clinic group, Stigma Health, shows age definitely isn’t a barrier to a healthy sex life.
The latest STI testing data proves that ‘Dear Ol’ Gramps’ sex life might be spicier than you think, with a number of patients pushing 80. And whilst the largest age group accessing testing is 20-30, under 20s are given a run for their money with the 60-70 age group very close behind.
James Sneddon, co-founder of Stigma Health shared “At Stigma Health we’re in a really unique position to get a daily insight into the comparative sex lives of Aussies, based on which age groups are accessing STI testing - we always have a bit of a smile on our face when we see the 70+ age group coming through in the data.”
When it comes to sexually transmitted infections, testing is one of the best ways to help curb infection however stigma surrounding STIs as well as access to testing means many people shy away from that awkward doctor moment.
“The sexual antics of older Australians have their own societal taboos to contend with so it’s great to see that access to discreet online services, such as Stigma Health, to obtain a referral for testing is helping this group enjoy this time of their life safely,” Sneddon said.
So, the next time you’re thinking about dropping by for a cuppa with Gramps, we’d like to suggest you call ahead first!
Stigma Health offers comprehensive testing with a bulk-bill option for Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV. Access is available through www.stigmahealth.com or via the Stigma Health app.
