Less Condom Use If Girls Get Spending Money From Boys

Teen girls whose primary source of spending money comes from their boyfriends are less likely to use condoms, according to a study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health and reported by ABC News. For the study, researchers from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine used data from an HIV prevention study that included 715 African-American teen girls in the Atlanta area. Researchers found that teenage girls were 10 percent more likely not to have used condoms in the previous 60 days if their spending money came from boyfriends instead of family or jobs. Researchers also found that girls whose boyfriends owned cars were also about 50 percent more likely to not use condoms than those whose boyfriends did not own cars. Overall, researchers found that women with less relationship bargaining power had a limited ability to negotiate for safer sex and were at higher risk of not using condoms.
