Check The Number Of Indirect Sexual Partners You've Had

It's important to be aware of your sexual health. Cases of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are on the up. Chlamydia alone increased by eight per cent between 2006 and 2008. If you do not practice safe sex you are putting yourself at risk of contracting an STI.

You may have heard of Six Degrees of Separation. It's the idea that we're all just six connections away from everyone else on the planet. This is the inspiration for Sex Degrees of Separation. By answering the questionnaire below we will be able to calculate the number of indirect (and direct) sexual partners you have had, going back six degrees of separation.

The calculator is not a diagnostic tool but does highlight how exposed you can be to STIs if you do not practice safe sex. If you are concerned about your sexual health you can either talk to your GP, pharmacist or visit your local GUM clinic. Information regarding a range of sexual health issues can be found via the menu on the left-hand side of the page.

Obviously, if you are not sexually active or have only one sexual partner who hasn't had sex with anyone else, you will avoid sexually transmitted infections. Condoms provide protection from some STIs, but not all. For example, HPV can be spread through sexual skin-to-skin contact, oral sex and sex toys as well as penetrative sex.
