One in Five Young Women Having Unprotected Sex This Summer
New Survey Says We're Not Using Condoms Often Enough
Ladies, ladies, ladies. You can have a summer fling without putting your health at risk! Scarily, a new survey in the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports that one in five women under 30 will have unprotected sex while on vacation this summer.
Some are having it with their boyfriends, while others are getting lucky (or unlucky, depending on how you look at it) on location - with one in ten having the unprotected sex with either a total stranger or a guy they met during their trip.
Why aren't they asking their partners to wrap it up? 18 percent claim they're usually too drunk to remember, while 8 percent say they simply don't care for condoms.
Not to sound like their mom here, but don't they know how dangerous that is? Who wants to come home from a glorious beach vacation with an STD or an unwanted pregnancy or, hello, AIDS?
Thankfully, women seem to get wiser as we get older with only one in five of us between the ages of 30 and 40 having unprotected sex.
2,000 women participated in the study. Hopefully, all of them finally came to their senses and will be packing some protection in their suitcases the next time they head out of town.
