Users who use cocaine usually don’t use condoms which will put themselves at risk of STDs

Using cocaine put people at higher risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). According to a new study by researchers at the Johns Hopkins University of Medicine, cocaine results in “sexual-impatience”, which means users are less likely to use condoms.

 

One study found that the longer someone who had taken cocaine had to wait to get a condom, the less likely they were to use one. This means that they put themselves and their partner at risk of STDs and unwanted pregnancy.

 

According to the researchers, using cocaine increases an individual’s sexual desire and so they are less willing to postpone intercourse, even if this means more time to get a condom. They become impatient so are more likely to put themselves in the situation of having risky intercourse.

 

 

Another study that looked at the effect the alcohol has on decision making when it comes to safe sex revealed similar results. Although alcohol doesn’t increase sexual desire, it does mean people are more impatient so may skip out on condom usage.

 

Remember play safe sex, use a condom always.
