Many are starting to discuss “stealthing,” a term that describes when a man removes a condom during sex despite agreeing to wear one. A report found that U.S. cases are on the rise; it’s important to know that “stealthing” is a form of non-consensual sex and more common than you’d think.

In her study, Alexandra Brodsky writes:

Professionals are taking to Twitter to spread information about the practice:
