MeThink: Unprotected Sex among Swedish Teen

From WHO report, according to the Local:

Not only are 15-year-old Swedish girls more likely to have sex than their peers in other countries, but they are also far more likely to do so unprotected.
Lily Eriksson of the Swedish National Institute of Public Health (SNIPH), the agency responsible for compiling the Swedish statistics, believes that Sweden could do more to stress the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases.
“Even though we have a very good sex education curriculum, there hasn’t been as much emphasis on the dangers of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases,” she told The Local.
Nearly 40 percent of 15-year-old girls in Sweden failed to use a condom the last time they had sex, compared with the overall average of 28 percent. Only girls from Romania reported using condoms less often. In contrast, only 5 percent of girls from top ranked Spain said they didn’t use a condom.
And statistics for Swedish boys aren’t much better, with 31 percent saying they last had intercourse without a condom, compared to an average of 19 percent. Only boys in Slovakia were more likely to have unprotected sex.

Well, this is not so good news for some people, but the explaination given was even worse…

Erikssson thinks that part of the explanation lies with Sweden’s relatively relaxed attitudes toward sex.
“We have a very open and liberal attitude about sex and talking about sex here in Sweden and I think that as a result, Swedish young people probably answer questions about their sexual habits a bit more truthfully than youngsters in other countries,” she said.

WHAT? So she means that because others lied and therefore Sweden’s number look bad? It has REALLY nothing to do with 40% 15-year-old teenage girls and 31% boys are not practising safe sex despite having a good sex education? … I mean I am not surprised the number is high here because during Durex Sex survey, the same high number of unprotected sex with new partner was observed among the adult Swedish too: >70% in year 2005.
Well, probably she should work hard to convince the other teenage around the developed countries to be more truthful about their sex life and then only realise it is not an issue afterall (since everyone is having the same problem)?

Sigh…
