  Football fans could put their health at risk during the World Cup this summer by drinking too much and having unprotected sex, a charity has warned.

  THT has published an online guide, entitled Scoring Without Getting an Own Goal, to give sports fans tips for safe sex this summer.

  THT spokeswoman Genevieve Edwards said: "If people are getting so drunk they can't remember what they did the night before, it's more than likely protected sex and condoms won't have been top of their priority list.

  "This is really worrying in relation to the World Cup this year, with thousands of people gathering in both the UK and South Africa to watch the tournament, enjoying a holiday atmosphere, having a lot to drink and potentially putting themselves at huge risk of sexually transmitted infections and HIV if they are forgetting about protected sex.

  "With the UK having the worst sexual health in Western Europe and 5.2 million people living with HIV and AIDS in South Africa, the highest rate in any country, it's vitally important sports fans look after themselves by using condoms throughout the World Cup this summer, whether at home or abroad."

  The campaign is being backed by Dr Christian Jessen, presenter of Channel Four's Embarrassing Bodiesand THT supporter.

  He said: "The World Cup is bound to put you in the mood for some post-match fun. With the sun hopefully shining, lots of drinks on the go and masses of people gathering in pubs across the UK and abroad it's the perfect pulling ground.

  "But it's also likely to be a time you might forget all about safer sex and put yourself at risk of those oh-so-passion-killing sexually transmitted infections."

  英国一家慈善机构日前警告说,在今夏世界杯足球赛期间,球迷们可能会因为酗酒和不安全性行为而受到健康威胁。

  英国民间慈善机构泰伦斯·席金斯基金会近日发布了一个名为《别自摆乌龙》的在线指南,为球迷们提供世界杯期间安全性行为方面的建议。

  THT基金会的女发言人吉纳维芙 爱德华兹说:“人在喝得烂醉时,不会记得前一天晚上做了些什么,极有可能忘记采取性保护措施和使用安全套。

  “今年的世界杯尤其令人担忧,因为将有成千上万的球迷聚集在英国和南非看球,享受节日气氛,喝很多的酒,如果此时他们放松了警惕,极有可能染上性传播疾病和艾滋病。”

  “英国是西欧性健康状况最差的国家,而南非有520万人口身患艾滋病,患者比例居全球之首。所以在今夏世界杯期间,球迷们要使用安全套来保护自己,无论在国内还是国外,这一点非常重要。”

  这一宣传活动得到了泰伦斯 席金斯基金会的支持者、第四频道《限制级诊疗室》节目主持人克里斯蒂安 杰森博士的支持。

  他说:“世界杯上的气氛一定会让你在比赛之余想去找点乐子。明亮的阳光,酒吧里聚满了人,几杯酒下肚,你就有些忘乎所以了。

  “但此时你也很可能将安全性行为方面的注意事项抛之脑后,从而受到性传播疾病的威胁。”
