Generation Z: The Future of Safe Sex in Australia

Generation Z: The Future of Safe Sex in Australia

Posted by Danny Achurch on Jul 11, 2023

Gen Z is growing up in an era of unlimited information and limitless possibilities. This is especially true when it comes to sex and love. As the youngest generation to enter adulthood, Generation Z has been dubbed the "sexual revolutionaries" for their more open-minded attitudes towards sex and relationships. But what does this mean for their attitudes towards condoms and safe sex practices in Australia?

More or Less Likely to Use Condoms?

According to recent research, the answer is both encouraging and concerning. On the one hand, a survey by Durex found that Australian Gen Zers are more likely to use condoms than any other age group, with 63% of respondents reporting that they always use condoms during sex. This is a promising statistic, as consistent condom use is one of the most effective ways to prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unintended pregnancies.

However, the same survey also found that Australian Gen Zers are less likely to prioritise sexual health than previous generations. Only 43% of respondents reported that they have regular sexual health check-ups, and less than half said they would feel comfortable discussing sexual health with a healthcare professional. 

This suggests that while Gen Zers may be more sexually active and more likely to use condoms, they may not be fully informed about the importance of regular STI testing and other safe sex practices.

More Info Than Ever Before

The good news is that Gen Zers in Australia have access to a wealth of resources and information on safe sex practices. Organisations like Family Planning Australia and the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations offer comprehensive sexual health information and resources, including information on the importance of consistent condom use and regular STI testing. Additionally, online condom stores like CondomSales offer discreet and convenient ways to purchase high-quality condoms from a wide range of brands.

So what can we take away from this research?

For one, it's clear that Gen Zers in Australia are taking steps to prioritise their sexual health through consistent condom use. However, there is still work to be done in terms of educating this generation about the importance of regular STI testing and other safe sex practices. 

By continuing to promote sexual health education and providing access to high-quality resources and products, we can help ensure that the sexual revolutionaries of today are also the safe sex champions of tomorrow.
