WHY YOU SHOULD
SEX STATS SO SCARY,
YOU WOULD WANT TO GET PROTECTED!
Frightening but True Reality of Sex in Malaysia
Sex is a natural physiological need. Sex helps to destress the mind, is an act of intimacy, love and procreation. It is scientifically proven to give many health benefits as well. However, without protection and the lack of awareness, sex can bring illness and disease as well as a life-long responsibility of providing for an unplanned child.
We compiled several statistics about sex in Malaysia and they will blow your mind:
40% of all pregnancies worldwide are unplanned & half will end in abortion. The lack of sex education and low usage of contraception are some of the reasons why this happens. It has been widely argued that Malaysia is in need for a more comprehensive syllabus on intercourse and contraception in schools, with some suggesting starting it in primary schools due to the rise of teenage pregnancy. The current data shows that 45 teenage girls will give birth each day in Malaysia.
1 in 5 Malaysians believed that an STI is transmitted by mosquito bites and can be transferred from person to person while 25% of Malaysians believe that trust between the partners will enable them to don’t use protection. Meanwhile, 1 out of 10 Malaysians believed that douching after sex will prevent pregnancy. All three facts are not true and dangerous as people are not taking steps to ensure their protection. The real facts are that STIs are transmitted via skin-to-skin contact such as kissing and penetration while the only way to prevent pregnancy is by using proper contraception methods like wearing condoms and taking contraceptive pills.
Top 3 STDs contracted by Malaysians are AIDS, Syphilis and Gonorrhoea while 10 Malaysians will discover that they have contracted HIV each day. Compounding the fact is that there are more than one million new cases of treatable sexually transmitted diseases every day globally, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) in their 2019 report.
It is important to be informed of the facts and take control of your health. All it takes is one mistake that comes with heavy consequences. Have open lines of communication with your partner to discuss steps to be safe and have fun together. It is highly recommended that you use to forms of birth control to greatly increase your protection: a condom with other methods such as IUD and the pill.
