The show featured the same format as international versions The Dating Game and Blind Date, with a contestant determining their "perfect match" by asking three potential suitors of the opposite sex hidden behind a screen a number of scripted compatibility questions. One featured a male asking questions of three unseen females, the other had one female asking questions of three male contestants.
Viewers of the show could see all contestants throughout each round.
WWF professional wrestler Paul Roma also made an appearance on Perfect Match.
Cameron Daddo replaced him as host of Perfect Match from 1987 to 1988.
The survey found men aged 50 or older were less likely to use condoms and more likely than younger men to think that condoms reduced sexual interest."It would actually put them off having sex," medical director of Family Planning NSW, Deborah Bateson, said."Or they'd feel worried about having sex with a condom.
So I think it's really important we actually address that perception."Older men that may not have used condoms for decades, they may remember grappling with condoms in their youth and not know there's been a change in technology."So I think it's about changing that old perception of 'sex in a raincoat'."The survey found 49 per cent of men over 60 did not know that Australia's most prevalent sexually transmitted infection (STI), chlamydia, often does not cause any symptoms."It is a worry, we want everyone to know that most STIs don't have symptoms because obviously what can happen otherwise is that you can have an STI and not know you've got it and pass it on to somebody else," Dr Bateson said.
The segment included footage of their weekend away, along with edited highlights of video interviews with each individual in isolation after returning home, which would be played to the couple as they were interviewed together in the studio.
Sometimes previously unrevealed true feelings would be revealed when the video interviews were replayed.
