52% Of women almost never use a condom, says study

Issues related to female empowerment and gender equality have been widely commented on today. However, when we talk about a woman's sexual behavior, it is possible to realize that there are still many taboos and barriers to be overturned.

This fact can be seen in a survey on sexual behavior commissioned by the Olla condom brand. The study interviewed 1,000 sexually active people between the ages of 18 and 35.

When questioned about the frequency of condom use, about 52% of women answered that they never or rarely use condoms. For men the number is 47%. In addition, only 29% of women usually carry the condom in the pouch, while 45% of men are always wearing condoms.

For women, not using condoms may be related to the discomfort of acquiring condoms, since 42% % say it is very uncomfortable and 37% feel judged at the time of purchase. In response to the same question, 72% of men said they thought it natural and safe to buy condoms.

Fear of trial

No matter how women take a daily stand and advocate gender equality, fear of judgment is still a deterrent to make them feel comfortable in using a condom and to get the condom.

Female behavior anthropologist Mirian Goldenberg analyzed the results of the research and, according to the expert, the embarrassment and shame seem to be related to women's fear of being judged as promiscuous, while men do not suffer the same judgment. This is because there is still a stigma that sexually active women are socially represented very negatively, as if they were promiscuous.

The mismatch between discourses, behaviors and values ​​can explain the distance between what they say and what they actually do , explains Mirian. In such a way that the sexually free woman is a woman who suffers accusations and who also internalized the accusations and existing social prejudices.
