Presentation Abstract

Although any population is at risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases, young adults between the ages of 20–24 years are at a higher risk of contracting these infections. Apart from abstinence, which is the only method that is 100% effective in preventing STIs and unwanted pregnancies, consistent condom use has been found to be the next most effective way to prevent STIs. Attitudes towards condom usage is an important predictor of consistent condom use. The purpose of this study is to examine how attitudes towards condoms impact safe sexual behaviors. It is expected that the results will provide deeper context into barriers that exist that prevent college students from engaging in protected sex. This will give further insight into how safe sex programs can be created and implemented on campuses to get impactful results.
