RIJSWIJK - Sex is not so important to the Dutch. This emerged from a survey carried out by Bayer Schering Pharma that was published on Tuesday. The pharmaceutical company conducted a large-scale survey into sexual behaviour and anti-conception in 12 EU member states.

Of the respondents surveyed in the Netherlands only 54 percent feel that sex is very important to them. This was the lowest percentage of all countries taking part in the survey. Only one third of the Dutch said that they would like to have more sex.

Twenty-five percent of the Dutch respondents admitted to once having had a one-night stand. Of all the Europeans who took part in the survey the Dutch scored lowest in this area. The same holds for the average number of sex partners that Dutch respondents have had in their lives - on average 5.7.

Seventy-five percent of the respondents indicated that they had never had sex without being in love. Just 10 percent said they had had an affair despite having a serious relationship.

The survey was conducted among 2,400 sexually active Europeans between 16 and 49.
