all things condoms

Kids and credit cards can mix

Posted by Condomologist on February 28, 2009

Kudos to our British friends for their seeking to bring innovative condom solutions to the high rates of teen pregnancy and STDs in their backyard. In Reading they’re giving out credit card-like incentives to be redeemed for condoms when teenagers go to clinics to speak with sexual health professionals about risk reduction. Until sex ed is part of normal school curricula the world over and larger structural deficiencies like poverty and homelessness and unemployment are remedied, the best we can do is think outside the box in promoting condom use. Part of that is discussing how sex can still be pleasureable with a rubber, and part of that is putting condoms in the news like they’re doing in Reading or, as I mentioned the other day, with the soccer club Burnley FC, by putting condom vending machines in college dorms, or whatever clever condom campaign you decide to take on.
