Men Using Condoms

By on April 28, 2013

There’s evidence that sexual “abstinence only” campaigns are not as effective as once thought. According to a national survey, more teenaged males are using condoms when they have sex for the first time. So make no mistake that teenage boys are having sex. And chances are, with your son or daughter.

Dating back to 2002, there has been a 9% increase in young males reporting using a condom the first time they had sex, with 80% now taking that precaution. There was also a 6% increase in males using a condom along with their female  partner using a hormonal method of birth control. One could translate these behaviors to young people considering implications of unprotected sex that ever before.

Coupled with statistics that show a continuing trend toward slightly  less sexual activity overall among youths aged 14 to 19, it did not  surprise the researchers that teen birth rates have again dropped.

“That helps explain why the teen birth rate has lowered,” said survey  author Gladys Martinez, a statistician with the U.S. National Center for  Health Statistics. In 2009, the teen birth rate hit an historic low of  39.1 births per 1,000 teenaged females, a 37 percent decrease from a peak  rate of 61.8 births per 1,000 teenaged females in 1991. But, she said, there are still troubling numbers in the report.

“Black males still have higher levels of sexual experience than white  and Hispanic males, and Hispanics have lower levels of contraceptive use,”  she noted.

The findings come in the results of a 2006-10 survey of adults and  children, including 4,662 teenagers. Forty-three percent of females who’d  never been married said they’d had sex at least once, compared with 42  percent of males. Those numbers are roughly the same as they were in a  2002 survey. It’s not clear why some of the sexually active teens don’t use  contraceptives since the survey didn’t ask that question, Martinez said,  although future research will ask about that.

The survey found the most common reason for not having sex was that it was against their religion or morals;  41% of the females in that group said that was their most important  reason, compared with 31% of males.

Latex condoms are a good way to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STI), including HIV. Animal skin condoms are not recommended for HIV/STI prevention but are believed to increase sensitivity.

    This goes in one ear and right out the other with most of them. They just do not care. If anyone wants a real view of trying to reach them and get through to them, you need to definitely visit the comment sections of various porn oriented sites like myvidster and you will see. You can shout about condoms all you want and you will be attacked by a lot of folks about it. It is sad folks do not want to protect themselves. YOU ONLY GET ONE DAMN BODY!
