Using plastic bags instead of condoms during sex would put teenagers at risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and severe vaginal lacerations, the Public Health Ministry warned yesterday.

A study has shown that some Mathayom 1 students in the Northeast had used plastic bags to prevent pregnancies and STDs.

Public Health Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said yesterday that the Disease Control Department’s Aids, Tuberculosis and Sexual Transmitted Disease Bureau had informed him that the use of plastic bags was unusual among teenagers who want to experience sex.
