2019 Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll Survey live

Burnet Institute

13 March, 2019

Burnet Institute has launched its 15th annual Sex, Drugs and Rock’n’Roll (SDRR) survey to find out about young Victorians' sexual behaviours and knowledge, alcohol and other drug use, and other lifestyle behaviours.

“Collecting these data over time is important so that we can see how people’s behaviours change,” project co-ordinator, Caitlin Douglass, said.

“This year we have some new open-ended questions. One asks people to reflect on if they could go back in time, what they wish they had learnt about pornography. We know from previous research that sexual health education often misses key topics for young people.”

Ms Douglass said results from the SDRR survey help direct Burnet’s other research, while also informing policy regarding young people’s health.

In particular, responses to the question on pornography may inform improvements to sexuality education programs.

Participation in the study involves filling in a questionnaire, which should take 15-20 minutes to complete. Participants have the chance to win a gift voucher. All responses are kept strictly confidential.

Originally run in 2005 at the Big Day Out music festival, the SDRR survey has provided insights into young Victorians’ behaviours in the years since and is now online.
