most places give condoms in the fresher pack.
at ours we got a condom, extra strong (for tough gay loving) and lube
and a teabag...

Hehe, things haven't changed then! We got a sachet of coffee as well though

As far as I'm aware, it's not for any twisted sexual practices, they're from the Fair Trade company, but for some reason they come in the same pack as the condoms. Tragically my Freshers' week ones are still in my drawer, I think :rolleyes:

I wouldn't really give a damn about packaging myself. And if anyone didn't know by my age that "condoms are the only form of contraception that protects against STDs and pregnancy" then I think they need their head seeing to.

No one's ever heard of teabagging then..?
And hint - it doesn't involve teabags anymore than 'fudgingpacking' involves fudge

and don't give them out in the bar. they inevitably get inflated, and people get hurt trying to get them on their heads.
seriously it took ages for the marks to go away.
O, and give out free dental dams. theyre hilarious

No, I'm an innocent little girl. Don't feel any need to enlighten me on this matter.

MattG - either your Freshers' week was very different from mine, or your expectations are very high. As for why they don't give out female contraception - I have no idea, but girls get given condoms as well, so it's not like we're missing out.

Two things:

One, in the survey is says you can't buy them under 18 - do you mean this as what some people might *think*?

Two, you keep asking about packaging. Well I know everything has to be sterile but sometimes the outer box (not the actual condom) is excruciatingly hard to get into (oh my... that sounds funny).

I wouldn't NECESSARILY agree with "not that bad" but I'm assuming you're looking at the treatment etc. But what about future sex life with partners and/or children? Surely that would inhibit your future?

what are your thoughts of receiving a free condom during freshers week.

Sounds great... I get them free down the "YES" centre... in all flavours & styles along with KY... but no coffee....

Needs to be openable when drunk!

Hey i love your sig btw!

What is a Yes centre - reminds me of the "YES! car credit" adverts lol.
In y11 we had a talk about contraception where they showed us all the different kinds but when someone asked they said they couldn't give us free condoms as some of us were under 16 and it could be seen as encouraging us to have sex!
So instead a group of the lads started having a fight with the morning after pills we were being shown. How immature we were back then.....
