Young Australians are playing ‘Russian roulette’ with their sexual health according to a new study

The survey commissioned by GlaxoSmithKline found a staggering 63 % of young aussies do not practice safe sex. The common reasons for not using protection included lack of sensation, being in a rush or being too drunk.

The study also found 65% of 18 to 25 year-olds have never been tested for a sexually transmitted infection, while only 20% sought medical advice when they experienced symptoms.
