Condom fatigue

Condom fatigue is a term used by medical professionals and safer sex educators to refer to the phenomenon of decreased condom use. "Condom fatigue" can also be used to describe a general weariness of and decreased effectiveness of safer sex messages. (This is sometimes called "prevention fatigue.")

The term has particularly been used to describe men who have sex with men, though the term applies to people of all genders and sexual orientations. Condom fatigue has been partially blamed for an increase in HIV infection rates, though this has not been substantiated in any study.
