The so-called Sex Revolution traits include mainly contraception, abortion, homosexual lifestyle, divorce, premarital and extramarital sex, which on the other hand earned great support from most Western developed countries like France, Germany and Britain.

This survey was conducted by asking 40,000 respondents in 40 countries what they thought about the most common sexual moral indicators that are most discussed around the world including: extramarital affairs, homosexual lifestyle, abortion, premarital sex, divorce, and the use of contraceptives.

For each of these important moral issues, respondents were asked whether it is morally acceptable, morally unacceptable or not a moral issue at all.

According to the study, respondents from Uganda overwhelmingly rebuffed the sex moral indicators, especially homosexuality which was rejected by 93% of the respondents.

Asked on whether married people, having an outside affair was acceptable, 80% answered in the negative, while abortion was opposed by 88%.

Other practices shunned by Ugandans included premature sex, [77%] divorce [76%] and gambling [80%].

Some lenience was, however, evident when it came to alcohol misuse, as only 57% said it was morally inacceptable, while only 38% refused use of contraceptives.

Developed countries France, Germany, UK, and Spain scored mostly below 10% on views concerning rejection of premarital sex, divorce and abortion.

Observers described the study as revelling of the deep seated moral decadence in mainly western nations, exposing huge proportions of people there; who embrace abortion as morally acceptable, and the shocking numbers who insist that extramarital sex is acceptable and the overwhelming majority who claim that premarital sex is acceptable.

According to the research median percentage scores, extramarital affairs was the most abhorred worldwide scoring 78%, followed by gambling [62%], Homosexuality [59%], abortion [56%], premarital sex [46%], alcohol use [42%], divorce [24%] and contraception [54%].
