According to a new Department of Health poll, only one in three adults used a condom the last time they had sex. 68.2% did not. The city is filled with people who boast multiple partners, too: 771,000 New Yorkers had two or more sexual partners last year, and 457,000 boasted having three or more partners. 

The poll seems kind of shocking on the surface—most one-night-standers at least make a drunken move toward the condom drawer, right?—and, yeah, once you actually dig into the numbers a bit, you can see why it's so inflated. 78% of adults aged 45 to 64 don't use condoms. 89% of senior citizens don't either.

Hang on a sec.

Okay, I'm back.

The number of married people, or adults otherwise not terribly concerned about accidentally having a kid at 60, artificially increases the number. When you actually nail down boinkers who really should be stocking up on Trojans—like single adults 18-24 and gay men—the number rises to 63% and 79%, respectively.

So there is no excuse: Nearly everyone our age is wearing a condom. Wrap it up, fools.
