Coitus Int hailed from Utrecht, the Netherlands. The band started out as a typical schoolboys punkrock-band in the late 70s. They made a 7 inch ("Dead Excitement ep", 1980) on the local Rock Against label. At that time many more p-bands appeared on the Utrecht scene, and Coitus Int. quickly changed style to a slower, more radical and just as heavy sound, with a barracuda bass style what would be part of their trademark sound, all influenced by groups as Gang of Four and Stranglers, In the years to come three albums were released, all on their own independent (and nameless) label, and made with different drummers:
- Coitus Int, 1981
- Sex For The Wealthy, 1984
- Rules For making Love And Babies, 1991

Singer Jos de Groot is still active today, he runs 7 inch garagepunk label A Fistful Of Records. Just recently he also did a compilation-cd on early 70s Dutch glamrock (called "Clap Your Hands And Stamp Your Feet") for Excelsior Recordings.
For a couple of years during the 80s guitarist Marcel Uffing was also the singer for Dutch outfit Hedda Gabler
