Sexual Health

Condom Use

According to the Canadian Community Health Survey (2011–2014) among non-married Simcoe Muskoka residents (15-49 years) with more than one sexual partner in the past 12 months, 66% (57.8%, 74.4%) reported using a condom the last time they had sexual intercourse. This was not significantly different than what was reported for all of Ontario for the same time period; where 65% (62.6%, 67.8%) reported using a condom the last time they had sex.

In Simcoe Muskoka, condom use with the last sexual encounter was higher among males, younger ages and those with lower household incomes. These differences were not statistically significant; however, failure to detect statistically significant differences could be due to the small number of Simcoe Muskoka respondents that answered the survey questions.
