Men had more extramarital intercourse than women in 11 states: Survey

New Delhi: Men are found to be having had more sexual intercourse outside their marital or live in relationships with 4 per cent higher than women with 0.5 per cent, a survey held in 11 states and UTs by the National Family Health Survey.

But it is women who have more sex partners than men, according to the survey.

The NFHS Survey conducted among 1.1 lakh women and 1 lakh men showed that the number of sex partners on average for women was higher than for men in many states and Union territories.

These states and UTs are Rajasthan, Haryana, Chandigarh, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Kerala, Lakshadweep, Puducherry, and Tamil Nadu. Rajasthan had the highest number of women with an average of 3.1 sex partners as against 1.8 for men.

But the percentage of men who had sexual intercourse with someone who was neither their spouse nor live-in partner, in the 12 months preceding the survey, stood at 4%. For women, the number stood at 0.5 per cent.

The National Family Health Survey-5 conducted during 2019-21 surveyed 707 districts of the country from 28 States and eight UTs.

The national report also provides data on socio-economic and other background characteristics, useful for policy formulation and effective programme implementation.
