  1. The effectiveness of condom use in heterosexual prostitution in The Netherlands.

    Article - En anglais


    To assess the extent to which condoms are used effectively in commercial heterosexual intercourse.

    Data on the number of condoms that had broken or slipped off, the sexual technique during which this had occurred and the perceived cause of failure were collected.

    The use of non-water-soluble lubricants and of non-fortified condoms during anal intercourse, and the demand for a greater variety of condom sizes were also examined.

    Subjects and methods

    One hundred and twenty-seven female prostitutes and 91 male clients from different parts of The Netherlands were interviewed face-to-face between july 1990 and March 1991.
