Almost 20 per cent of young adults would have sex with someone knowing the other person had an STD, so a new research has revealed. Of these adults about 40 per cent actually already had unprotected sex with someone they knew had an STD. Most say that they were happy to deal with the consequences later.
Another 26 per cent explained they would be happy to have sex with someone with an STD because if they used protection it would be ‘impossible to become infected’.
