Rates of infection for sexually transmitted disease chlamydia in the UK doubled between 1995 and 2001 to 70,000 cases a year, according to new data published by the Office for National Statistics.

HIV cases also reached unprecedented levels in 2001, reflecting the increasingly disease riddled British population.

In more sex news, the Observer revealed a surprising solar connection to sexual activity, uncovered during the solar eclipse of 1999.

According to the paper, sales of sex lubricant KY jelly increased by 300% during the month of the eclipse, in the West Country area where the full eclipse was visible.
