Sexuality is mainly determined by psycho-social, biological and cultural factors. The sexually active life periods were extended in both genders, toward the youth and to the elderly as well. There are only limited available and reliably data on sexual activity of different populations. During routine medical consultations the issue of sexuality is mostly neglected. Without validated method and reliable medical records, it is hard to compare data from different sources regarding sexual activity. The aim of our study was to evaluate the sexual activity of Hungarian men among medical setting.

Consecutively selected 885 male patients were involved in the study, performed in a Hungarian outpatient’s centre between January 2002 and June 2006. Before andrological and urological examinations, or primary care consultations, men were questioned on their regular sexual activity, about the numbers of their weekly intercourse.

The mean age of men was 34.2y (21-61y). The mean weekly activity was 2.9 coitus (SD ±1.9) in the age cohort between 20-50y. The means within the cohort of 21-30 year were 2.9; between 31-40y: 3.1; between 41-50y: 2.9 and over 50y: 1.9. Differences were higher between individuals, than between age decades (

It seems that differences are mainly between individuals and not between age decades within this life period. Hungarian data provided by this study were compared other national data from commercial origin
