We all think it’s a guy’s job to have condoms all the time, but what about us ladies?. Why are we scared to just go buy a packet of condoms in a shop? Is it because we worry too much about what people will say? Or that we will be judged by the teller at the counter who may think we are loose? What ever the case, I believe it’s everyone’s responsibility to carry a condom. Especially if you are sexually active. As a woman, carrying a condom means you care about your health, well being and that you are willing to take the steps to protect yourself in any way possible.
So what if our boyfriend doesn’t want to use a condom?
Well at GirlZtalk, one of our golden rules is :
If it’s not on, it’s not on. Meaning if your guy isn’t wearing a condom we aren’t going to have sex. For us the pleasure is the same so why would we put ourselves at risk of contracting STIs, HIV or falling pregnant just because a guy says he likes having sex without.
It also boils down to respect and if our guys respect us then they will be happy to protect us. Condoms are the only form of contraception that will protect us against STIs and HIV and do not have any health side effects.
SO ladies don’t be shy, protect yourself and carry a condom. Think of it as just another essential in your purse. After all, your health is in your hands.
