The year is 1992. Strictly Ballroom is playing in cinemas, Paul Keating is Prime Minister, and Nirvana and the Violent Femmes are headlining the first Big Day Out. This was also the first year of a 25-year national survey about adolescent sexual health in Australia. So how has young people’s sexual behaviour changed from the era of grunge rock to the rise of R&B?

Examining data from this 25-year survey, Professor Jayne Lucke will give us insights into what has changed and what has stayed the same in the sexual lives and literacy of young people.


Professor Jayne Lucke is Director of the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University and Honorary Professor at the University of Queensland’s School of Public Health.
