Abstract

Teenagers need specific, direct and practical advice about why and how to use condoms, if they are to ever to accept them as a routine part of their sex lives.

Nurses need to actively promote effective and consistent condom use, as an element of safer sex, among young people.
Three indisputable facts about teenage sex are that:
1) Teenage sex has always happened
2) Numbers of teenage unplanned conceptions in the UK are going down since implementation of the current Teenage Pregnancy Strategy
3) Many unfortunate consequences of unprotected intercourse — such as infections, including HIV, and unplanned conceptions — are avoidable with correct and consistent use of condoms.
