National Survey of Sexual Health and BehaviorFlowingData is running a visualization contest this month based on data from the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior study. You can find the data here. Here is my entry:
Note that I concatenated Sex & Behavior to determine which acts are the most frequent and by whom. I chose a red-blue pallet since our sexual activity goes hot and cold. Displaying the data in the manner, I was able to quickly identify that:
- Men masturbate their whole lives
- The age ranges from 20-39 are clearly the peak sexual activity periods, with 25-29 standing out the most
- There is very little woman on woman and man on man oral sex
- We run out of steam in our 70s
