A study of women between the ages of 18 and 40 found a large percentage adopt a ‘head in the sand’ approach to sexually transmitted diseases.
The average single woman has had unprotected sex 11 times with a total of four different men, according to figures.
Research showed than one third of women get ‘swept away in the moment’ and forget about using condoms.
One in five said they trust their sexual partners not to give them an infection.
Eighteen per cent of single girls said they are often too drunk to use contraception – and 8 per cent said they ‘just don’t like using condoms’.
Dr Tony Steele is co-founder of online doctor and pharmacy DrFox.co.uk, which carried out a survey of 2,000 women’s attitudes to sex.
This kind of behavior can lead to unwanted pregnancies.
