Abstract/Summary Sex… and … Health After sex, health is one of the most searched topics on the Web 61% of American adults look online for health information but 86% of all adults also ask a health professional. 68% of all adults ask a friend or family member. 54% use books or other printed reference material. A majority of e-patients access user-generated health information. But few are actively writing or creating new health content Online health inquiries have an impact on decisions or actions and there are clearly more positive experiences than negative ones.
