I can definitely vouch for the embarrassment of buying ones first condom, especially at a younger age. Im from the United States and at my university and in the residence halls they have condoms in the vending machines. Most people in the states can order condoms online via Amazon or the local delivery service in the area will usually have condoms available for delivery. I agree that even in the states there is a negative stigma behind condoms. There needs to be a major international campaign to change that view


Kevin commented on Sex Education With Virtual Reality

I think this is a great contribution for the future when VR is more widely used and cheaper, however, from what I know, one oculus rift console costs somewhere around $400. If we are trying to implement it into schools and the general public, it might be hard for the underfunded or people living in poverty. I suppose some deal can be made with the company that makes Oculus rifts or a grant given from the department of education or a non profit to start raising money to have them in schools. Have you considered using augmented reality on mobile phones (like Pokemon Go) as a temporary solution or a short term solution since they are relatively more cost effective/ more accessible to the general public?

Nevertheless that is a great idea and hope to see it in use in the future!


Kevin commented on Sexual and reproductive education in Pakistan

Thank you for your contribution!
Perhaps there is some way we can change the view of the groups or show them that sexual/reproductive health education is not necessarily a western agenda but much needed information to produce a better lifestyle.
