According To A Study, Men Don’t Care To Practice Safe Sex If The Woman Is Attractive
No matter how much people preach the importance of safe sex, some still engage in sexual activities that make theme susceptible to sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as HIV. (No shaming here but safe sex is the best sex and y’all know it.)
So, who exactly are these individuals we’re speaking of? According to a new study out of the University of Southampton in the UK, straight men are actually less likely to wrap it up if they find their partner to be very attractive.
Their research on attractiveness influencing condom use in men began by gathering 51 straight guys between the ages of 19 and 61 and asked them to rank the attractiveness of 20 different women based only on their black and white photographs. After giving their rankings, they were then asked a few invasive questions on their hypothetical intentions with those women in the bedroom. Questions ranged from if would use a condom or how likely they thought it was that the woman had an STI.
In conclusion, they found that men were indeed more likely to consider unprotected sex with the women they found the most attractive, even if they thought she might have an STI. In addition, perceived STI status had no clear connection in how men were attracted to women with some men founding “riskier” partners more attractive. (Yuck!) However, there were others that were more attracted to the women they thought had a clean bill of health.
So, at the end of the day, put on a condom y’all. And like Snoop Dog said on “Nuthin’ But A G Thang,” take heed because ‘ain’t no p**** good enough to get burnt while your up in it.’ And that goes for the ladies, too. No matter how fine he is, no glove, no love!
