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

by James “JB” Bryson

When we first settled here, and I say “we” as I was lock step with my wife at all times, it is hard to deny the utterly open and transparent sex industry that prevails in Panama.

Not merely for the obvious reasons associated with careless sexual liasons, but also for the fact that they often do not know that it is ingrained in the local culture. From the night clubs to the casinos, an interlude is truly at your fingertips.

This article from La Prensa, will illuminate that these risky practices are continuing to rise despite the fact that information and data is readily available that would lead people to be more careful. It seems more often than not, when the mood strikes, people are still not taking heed to advice.

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.
