Study Shows that Many People Worldwide Aren’t Using Condoms Correctly


Back in January, SuzyKnew asked you if you knew how to use condoms correctly. Now it appears that using condoms incorrectly is a real problem – all over the world! A recent study in Sexual Health shows that not using condoms correctly is causing unintended pregnancies and infection. Led by the Kinsey Institute Condom Use Research Team, the study compared 50 studies across 14 countries.

What were the common problems?
Not leaving enough room at the tip, taking the condom off before the deed is done, failing to check for damage before using, and yes turning the condom on inside out before using.
