Did you know…

-The legal age of consent in Ireland is 17 – whether you’re a girl, guy, gay, or straight.

The burden of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) is greatest among young people under the age of 25.

The most frequently reported STIs in Ireland are chlamydia – comprising over half of all reported cases – followed by anogenital warts, gonorrhoea, and herpes.

Reported STI cases in Ireland rose from 3,361 in 1995 to 12,719 in 2012 – roughly a 300% increase.

-You can’t tell by looking at someone if they have an STI.

The largest study of young people’s sexual behaviour and attitudes, Understanding Teenage Sexuality in Ireland(also known as the Hyde Report), was done in 2004 and features interviews and information from 226 students across the country.
