What’s so great about the condom?

Everything! It protects you from diseases and pregnancy. You can get it anywhere, from the gas station or from you local grocery store, and anyone can buy a pack. No doctor’s appointments needed, no prescription, and there’s not even an age limit. Anyone can buy and use condoms, and so everyone has access to good prevention.

Why should you familiarize yourself with the condom?

Practice makes perfect. You can practice putting on a condom, even if you haven’t had sex with other people yet and aren’t planning to for a long time. The more you do it, the easier it gets. All genders need the practice. If you have a penis, you can practice using a condom while masturbating. It’s also possible to practice for example by rolling the condom over a carrot. The important thing is to open the wrapper correctly, to roll on the condom and take it off properly.

Why use a condom?

Because you deserve it! And so does your partner. Nobody wants to contract a sexually transmitted disease or become accidentally pregnant. Using a condom means feeling good and not having to worry afterwards. Using prevention is a sign that you’re smart and have good manners. It shows that you care about yourself and about your partner(s). So do a good deed and use a condom!
