Words of caution to the trappings of Panama for newcomers; the Sex comes with consequences

From the night clubs to the casinos, an interlude is truly at your fingertips.

The results of the study, released yesterday by the Gorgas Institute, indicate that the risk is higher among women: 60.3% said they had had several sexual partners in the 12 months prior to the survey. Of the men, 52.4% did it.

The situation is aggravated if one takes into account that only 14.1% of women and 13.3% of men said they had used a condom in the last high risk relationship.
