Why Safe Sex is More Important Than Ever

Why Safe Sex is More Important Than Ever

Posted by Kenny Condom on Jun 27, 2017

If you are sexually active, statistics show that it is more important now than it ever has been to buy condoms and keep them on hand. STI’s are on the rise in Australia and have been for the last five years with no end in sight.

For example it is estimated that 260,000 Australians aged between 15 and 29 have chlamydia and don't know it. While we don't have HIV statistics from 2016 yet we do have a full report for 2015. At the end of 2015, slightly more than 25,000 people were estimated to have HIV infections in Australia.

Out of those 25,000, 10% or 2,500 were unaware of their infections. That’s 2,500 ticking sexual time bombs walking around Australia. The next time you have sex with a new partner, think about whether they might be one of those 2,500.

Why Safe Sex is More Important than Ever

Since 1982 when the first case was documented until 31 December, 2015, the total of documented HIV infections in Australia was 36,171. In 2015, there were 1,025 new cases of HIV documented in Australia, which was on a par with each of the previous three years.

There are full, documented facts on all of the HIV diagnoses made in Australia during 2015. 68% of the cases were caused by male on male sex. 20% of the cases were caused by heterosexual sex. 5% were of semi-determinable origin, either by male to male sex or injecting drugs. 3% were semi-determinable by either heterosexual sex or injecting drugs. 4% of the cases were undetermined. Either they didn’t know or they weren’t talking.

STI’s are a growing problem that isn’t going away soon. Gonorrhoea is up in both Queensland and in Western Australia to a point where it has become a severe problem. You need to keep yourself safe.
