Eight out of ten men brought a condom to a funeral “just in case”.

My goodness! According to a survey, eight out of 10 men have brought a condom to a funeral “just in case”.

It may seem like the last place you’ll find someone to have sex with, but one in eight men under the age of 35 has brought a condom to a funeral, according to a survey.

US condom brand Trojan released a new study that found one in eight men admitted to having protection with them for the celebration “just in case”.

While the funerary element may seem shocking, it appears that grief can activate libido, according to Patti Britton, a clinical sexologist and sex educator.

Sex releases endorphins, also known as the “happy hormones,” which can boost mood.

He said Mel Magazine: “It’s really about filling the void — literally and figuratively.”

“The grieving process is about a loss of closeness — a loss of intimacy.” That’s why our libido kicks in: to fill that gap.”

Trojan’s State of Sex study, which surveyed 2,000 adults aged 18 to 35, also found that 77 percent of respondents believe men and women should be equally responsible for protection.

About 78 percent of men said they would rather wear condoms than force their partner to use birth control.

But more than half of the women taking part in the survey said they would prefer their sexual partners to wear condoms to taking birth control pills.

Currently, the only methods of birth control available to men are wearing condoms or having a vasectomy — a minor, usually permanent, surgical procedure that prevents sperm from reaching semen ejaculated from the penis.

The male birth control pill is currently in trials, with researchers calling it “groundbreaking” after a promising US government-funded study.

The drug is taken 30 minutes before sex and appears to be 100 percent effective in preventing pregnancy for at least two hours.

It prevents male sperm from swimming towards eggs or maturing to the point where they can fertilize an egg and produce a baby.

Although it has only been shown to prevent pregnancy in mice so far, there is good evidence that the contraceptive works in humans too.

The State of Sex survey also found that 65 percent of respondents took protection with them on their first date.

However, 63 percent of them said they would be most likely to talk about protection with their partner if they were already in bed with them.
