Of all the older boys and younger men in the world, 47% report to have used a condom at the last time of high-risk sex. The region with the highest condom use is North America, at 63.5%. The lowest condom use is in the Middle East at 36.8%.
Male and female condom use is not the same for a few reasons. Homosexual sex disconnects figures for men and women. Also, many men might sleep with the same women, whilst other women do not have ‘high-risk’ sex. This is particularly the case because female prostitution is more common than male prostitution. There are also reporting biases.
