I want to use condoms

A:

YouthCO is open 10:00 – 5:00 Monday to Friday and we have lots of free condoms and lube – or you can pick them up at your nearest youth clinic.

Condoms are the only thing that prevent both pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. They work best when they’re used correctly, and with lots of water-based or silicone lube.

To learn how to properly put on a condom, check out our condom demo video on YouTube.

We can also turn a condom into a dental dam, for safer oral sex on an anus (rimming) or vulva (going down / eating out).

Having safer sex can also mean talking to our partners about our sexual health, getting tested, and  choosing forms of intimacy that are less likely to pass STIs.  And of course, making sure that ourselves and our partners are into whatever it is we’re doing by first getting consent.
