No condom Bond slammed
09:30 04 October 2005
James Bond has been slammed by doctors for bedding countless women and never using a condom.
Medics have accused Hollywood of glamourising unsafe sex and singled out agent 007.
In his 20-film career, Bond has slept with 44 women and has never caught a sexually transmitted disease or had a child.
The Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine has slammed movies, including 2002's 'Die Another Day', for their contraception-free sexual antics and say Hollywood is to blame for the rise in sexually transmitted diseases and accidental pregnancies.
Doctors at Sydney University, Australia, found no mention of birth control in 98 per cent of sex scenes in the top 200 films of the past 20 years.
Dr Hasantha Gunasekera, the author of the research paper, says, "The social norm being presented in movies is worrying given the HIV and illicit drug pandemics.
"The motion picture industry should be encouraged to depict safer sex practices and real consequences of unprotected sex."
