Fellas please chime in?
The federal government has spent nearly half a million dollars to fund a study to find out why some men would prefer not to wear condoms during sex.
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a branch of the National Institutes of Health, has awarded a $423,500 grant to researchers at The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction.
The Bloomington, Ind., based research team will use the funding to study “barriers to correct condom use,” according to a release from the institute.
“This project aims to advance our understanding of, among other factors, the role of cognitive and affective processes and condom application skills in explaining problems with condom use in young, heterosexual adult men,” reads an excerpt of the study, which will be funded through May 2011.
But critics aren’t so sure that this is the way the government should be spending taxpayer dollars.
