Over 40s turn away from safe sex

Younger people are better at practising safe sex than older generations, a government study has found.

after a certain age, you don't need contraception anyway.

and you've probably caught all the diseases by then.

and since you're practically dead already, getting more diseases isn't really a problem.

Hmmm...

Younger people have casual sex more often and embark on more sexual relationships, the study also showed. One in five people in the 17-30 age group had a new sexual encounter every year, while only one in 25 did so in the 46-60 age bracket.
So... older couples in established relationships aren't using condoms...?

Why is that shocking?

What is shocking is that someone actually thought it was a good idea to do "a study"...

Re: Over 40s turn away from safe sex

I remember not long ago there being news in the States about the waves of syphilis in retirement homes. The advent of viagara combined with people being past their childbearing years resulted in some embarrassing rediscoveries.

What all of it tells us is that people are more afraid of breeding primates than getting sick.

Who says those established older daters go for routine regular checks, then? If fidelity is what matters and they have been given medical clear, etc, why not. But it is not always the case, nor is fidelity. The thrill of doing it bare back is appealing to all, not just the young ones. I think while younger generation has been exposed to massive campaigning (and do not want kids, just yet), it could be the older ones that think nothing will ever happen to them.

It would be more surprising if they were using condoms.
Imagine you have to deal with both Viagra and condoms. That should be pretty complicated
