"Breaking news" from theage.com.au:
A culture of binge drinking among backpackers is driving up risky sex and rates of sexually transmitted infections in Sydney, specialists say.
Loads of free condoms have been delivered to backpacker hostels across the city in response to a new trend showing more travellers are seeking diagnosis and treatment for new infections, especially chlamydia.
Local health authorities and councils have teamed up with the NSW Backpackers Operators Association to promote better sexual health practices among young international travellers.
As part of that, free condoms have been distributed in backpacker accommodation throughout Sydney to try to reduce the incidence of STIs among this group of people.
Do any hostels have condom vending machines?
