Why use condoms?
  • Think it’s awkward asking someone to wear a condom? Imagine being told you’ve got an STI
  • People with STIs often don’t know they’re infected, so protect yourself just in case
  • You can never tell who has an STI just by looking at them, which is why condoms are so important
  • Condoms come in different sizes and flavours, meaning there’s never a reason not to use one
  • Carrying condoms means you’ll never be caught in the moment without one
  • It only takes one person to make the decision. No condom, no sex
