Condoms on and off: A review of prophylactic barrier use and youth sexual well-being

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Barriers remain an essential, developmentally relevant element to prevention of sexually transmitted infections for most youth. In particular, barriers can be flexibly implemented to a variety of sexual behaviors that reflect diverse partners' preferences as well as sexual and gender identities. However, barriers continue to represent a broad challenge to the beliefs of many young people about sexual trust and intimacy. The objective of this review is to provide an evidence-based understanding of the role of barriers in the sexual well-being of contemporary youth, with emphasis on sexual relationships, sexual function, and pleasure.
