Fantastic freebies! Free condom!
Recently, however, U.S. News and World Reportnoted that condom usage has drastically dropped among women. According to the Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit reproductive health organization, "only 30% of women with multiple partners have used condoms in the last month, and only 20% reported 'always' using them over the past year." The reasons for not using condoms include discomfort with discussions about safe sex, trust issues, and shame about sex. Planned Parenthood is attempting to combat this problem with the release of "proper attire" condoms, which are aimed at female consumers.
Of course, my favorite solution is to find a way to make safe sex more economically viable. Luckily, Trojan is offering free condoms.
