Funding Acknowledgements

This study was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (grant number: 1002174). The authors are indebted to David Shellard and the staff of the Hunter Valley Research Foundation for managing data collection and undertaking the interviews for this study, and to the Social Research Centre for producing weights for the data. The authors also thank the 20 094 Australians who took part in the two phases of the project and so freely shared the sometimes intimate aspects of their lives. Professor Anthony Smith died during the course of this project and we intend this work to be a tribute and a further example of the extraordinary contribution his work has made to the sexual health and wellbeing of Australians.
