      SINGAPORE: University students in Singapore who do not use protection
      during sex maintain it is unnecessary, uncomfortable or too
      expensive, a survey released on Saturday showed.

      Half the 360 Nanyang Technological University undergraduates surveyed
      also said sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS and gonorrhoea
      do not pose a risk.

      The survey showed that slightly more than one-third of those students
      engaging in premarital sex use protection all the time.

      Twenty-eight per cent said they opt for contraception most of the
      time, 18 per cent sometimes, 5.7 per cent rarely and 11.3 per cent
      never.

      Nearly 40 per cent of those who had unprotected sex said they did
      not "like the feeling" of contraception, while 20 per cent said such
      a practice was "not spontaneous".

      About eight per cent said protecting their partner against pregnancy
      was "too expensive."

      "I'm worried about their mentality, not so much their lifestyle,"
      family life centre executive director David Kan told the Straits
      Times.

      "They have an `enjoy now, suffer later' mentality," he added.
