OB Bureau

New Delhi: Wanting to be prepared for any circumstances, nearly one in eight men under 35 years of age have admitted that they took condoms with them to a funeral, claimed a study. The study was conducted by a leading condom brand through an online survey with the participation of about 2000 adults aged 18 to 35 in the United States, according to a report in Metro UK.

An intriguing aspect of the study suggested that humans can experience arousal in the face of grief. Sex, in addition to serving as a means of filling an emotional void, can provide a distraction from the pain one may be going through. It is believed to trigger the release of endorphins, commonly known as the “happy hormone.”

And that is not all. The brand also found that about 65 per cent of adults carried condoms to a first date. However, 63 per cent of them revealed that they most likely ask their potential sex partner about protection once in bed. The study also discovered that about one in four millennials carried a condom to their high school reunion.

Interesting statistics

  • Around 77 per cent of people between 18 to 35 believed that both males and females should be equally responsible while taking care of protection.
  • Around 78 per cent of adults claimed that they would rather be responsible for putting on the protection than make their partner take birth control.
  • 52 per cent of the women stated that they would make their partner put on the protection rather than taking the pills.
  • A significant majority of adults, comprising 52 per cent, prefer to keep condoms on their bedside tables.
  • 57 per cent of women follow this practice making it the most popular location for them.
  • For 52 per cent of men, the favourite spot to store condoms is their wallet.
