More than two thirds of all adults have had unprotected sex and not used any form of contraception when they've not been trying for a baby.
The YouGive survey, commissioned by condom brand SKYN by Mates found that 73 per cent of men said they had ever had sex without using any form of contraception when not trying for a baby making them slightly more likely to have done so than women who said they had had unprotected sex at 63 per cent.
Londoners who have ever had sex without using contraception seem to be more spontaneous though, with almost half of respondents admitting to “spur of the moment” unplanned sex, more than those who have ever had sex without using any form of contraception in the rest of the UK.
Barry McCool, Head of Global Marketing of the Sexual Wellness Division of Ansell comments: ”Our signature condoms have been described by consumers as the “closest thing to wearing nothing” and I hope that this will encourage more to practise safe sex.”
The YouGov survey was commissioned by SKYN as part of its promotional campaign promoting its ultra smooth polyisoprene condom, which is clinically proven to enhance sensation combining the strength of a premium latex with the sensitivity of the real thing and advocating safe sex amongst young and unattached people.
