Condoms and Anal Sex

Men using condoms during anal sex — women aren’t: Health Department

Just 23% of women make their partners use condoms during anal sex compared with 61% of men, a new Health Department study says.

The practice was most common among women ages 18 to 24, and Asian women.

Health Commissioner Thomas Farley said the HIV risks of unprotected gay anal sex are widely known, but the study found “a large number of women are also putting themselves at high risk.”

Farley urged all New Yorkers to “use a condom every time.”
