    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The II National Youth Survey  revealed that 44.5% of sexually active Costa Ricans, aged between 15 and 35, never used condoms during intercourse.

    The survey, conducted by the Council of Young Persons (CPJ in Spanish), found that only 29.3% used condoms “all the time” and that Costa Ricans initiate sex at a younger age now than they did in the past.

    Currently, adolescents between 15 and 17 years old indicated that their sexual activity began, on average, at age 15. The most common reasons given by respondents for having sex were “mere curiosity  and being in love.”

    “This justifies the need to provide high-quality sex education from an affective and psychological perspective at an earlier age,” said the director of CPJ, Kenneth Carpio at a press conference. The survey also confirmed that young people learn about sexuality mostly at school and at home. 60.1% of young people in Costa Rica are single, 17.5% are married, 19.1% live with a partner, and 3.3% report a different status.
