1 in 8 Men Have Brought a Condom to a Funeral, Data Reveals
Yes, you read that correctly.
Leading condom brand Trojan reveals sex and condom trends.
According to its study which aims “to dig deep into the mindsets and behaviors of adults 18-35 when it comes to intimate connections,” Gen Z and Millenials have an interesting approach to sex. When asked about who should have a condom, 77% of respondents believed it was an “equal responsibility,” the brand shared. Also, 88% of couples are using sex toys in the boudoir, a shift from once being considered taboo.
However, it appears sex and condom culture is more layered than most assumed. Apparently, “close to 1 in 8 men 35 and under admit to bringing protection to a funeral…just in case,” the study results revealed. On a more positive note, however, 65% of adults are bringing condoms to a first date — just in case, too.
Overall, Trojan’s study points to an evolution of condom and sex culture. One that prioritizes safety, regardless of gender roles and respectability politics.
