What is the substitute for a condom

Because a young couple from Vietnam wanted to have sex but didn't have condoms on hand, they got a pretty stupid idea.

Proper sexual education among teenagers around the world is still a major concern, according to a recent study. This obviously failed for a couple from Vietnam as well. The two were looking for an alternative to condoms - and ended up in the hospital.

International problem
Said study took place between 1990 and 2015 and looked at the sexual education of young people worldwide. The result was shocking: many young people around the world have not been sufficiently informed for a long time and found sex education classes to be embarrassing, stressful and ineffective. In less developed countries in particular, sexual education is often still a taboo subject and is treated more badly than rightly by teachers. A young couple from Southeast Asia has now impressively demonstrated what the inadequate treatment of the subject can trigger.

Inappropriate replacement
The young Vietnamese wanted to sleep together for the first time, but hadn't thought of buying condoms. Instead of postponing your special moment to a later date or buying that important contraceptive, the two of them grabbed a plastic bag. As was to be expected, sexual intercourse with this unsuitable contraceptive turned out to be difficult. Both of them sustained wounds on their genitals and had to be treated in a nearby hospital. What sounds funny can end up not only painful but also very dangerous. After all, condoms not only protect against unwanted pregnancy, but also against serious sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, syphilis or hepatitis B. In order to educate about the benefits of contraceptives, sex education must be promoted internationally and should play a major role in the curriculum. In Germany, too, many students report insufficient school education. A problem that should actually no longer exist in our society today.
