Experts found out in which cases young boys and girls prefer to refuse contraception.
Psychologists conducted a survey among students at a University in Canada and found out which groups of young people tend to engage in unprotected sexual intercourses.
The respondents were divided into three groups. There were 156 people in the group of heterosexual men and 178 people in the group of heterosexual women. Men of non-traditional sexual orientation also took part in the experiment. There were 107 of them. The age of all participants ranged from 18 to 25 years. The purpose of the survey was to find out the answer to the question why young people prefer not to protect themselves during sexual intercourse, because they know about the possible infection with sexually transmitted diseases or the consequences of an unwanted pregnancy.
The survey suggested different scenarios for sexual and romantic relationships, as well as ways to develop them. Young people had to choose what they would do in a given life situation.
The results of the study showed that each group of respondents would have acted differently. Heterosexual men were more likely to consent to sex without using contraception. But heterosexual women insisted on using a condom during sexual intercourse. Many stated that they would refuse to have sex if the partner did not want to use protection. As for men with non-traditional sexual orientation, their answer was somewhere in the middle. They prefer to negotiate with a partner and discuss what to do in a given situation.
The authors of the experiment were able to identify the reasons why young people do not want to use contraception. For example, heterosexual women refuse to use condoms when they have a long-term relationship with their partner and they see the prospect of their further development.
However, psychologists believe that a full-fledged experiment is not over yet. Girls with non-traditional sexual orientation and other sexual minorities did not participate in the survey.
By the way, as a result of research, doctors concluded that condoms as a means of contraception are only 82% reliable. Birth control pills are 91% reliable.
