This article reviews the existing British literature on the micro-social details of young people's heterosexual encouters, emphasizing the cultural factors which impede the adoption of health education advice.
Most of the findings cited come from qualitative projects that relied primarily on detailed interviews or group discussions.
Six issues are highlighted:
difficulties in talking about sex;
the gender-role expectations brought to an encounter;
the primary function of condoms as contraceptives;
problesm in buying, carrying and using condoms;
how the stage of a particular relationship affects behaviour, and gendered power relations.
Several important issues are not addressed in the existing literature.
