One quarter of students in year 10 report sexual intercourse, and around half of those in year 12. Rates for young men have remained stable or fallen slightly, while for young women, rates have increased particularly among year 12 girls, rising from 46% to 61%. It also appears that students are having sex with more partners.http://www.latrobe.edu.au/news/videos/4th-national-school-sexual-health-survey
