“Sexual Revelations…”

41 different combinations of sexual acts

Using Condoms:

79% males 14-17yo / 58% females

45% males 18-24yo / 38% females

29% males 25-34 / 24% females

These are just a couple results from the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior conducted by the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University. There is a total of 130 pages in the Journal of Sexual Medicine that shows the results of 5,865 respondents between the ages of 14 and 94 years old.

Check here for the National Study Website.

It’s also the cover story in the Washington Express – “Rates of condom use among black and Hispanic men were significantly higher than for whites. The researchers said this suggested that HIV-AIDS awareness programs were making headway in those communities, which have relatively high rates of the disease.”

80% of our male youth using condoms? It’s encouraging to see a positive result from the national and local programs around condom use.. maybe we are making headway! Or, is this a misrepresentation of use? What do you think?
