    ...13 happens to be the age of consent for japan...

    And yes, why not sell condoms in unis? The only difficulty will be buying them from dudes who know you...I'd imagine it's a lot less embarassing to buy from some back alley pharmacy...

    I don't personally see any reason to not do it. It's not like people will be having less sex if they are less available (people aren't that smart). Worst case scenario will be people going a little farther away to get them or the absolute worst case scenario were people have unprotected sex.

    I agree with alphabeta here. Condoms should be for free especially if they're sold at an university.
    But in general it's a good idea. Protection is important. Unfortunately some people don't care.

    At my university, you can get them for free at several places on campus. By university, I think most students already have pretty firm beliefs about sex before marriage. If you're against it, giving you free condoms won't make you start doing it. But if you are for it, having easy access to protection will keep you safe.

    Even in the most conservative of countries, there will always be people who start having sex before marriage. Giving them condoms is not only protecting them but also protecting you in case you marry them in the future without knowing their sexual history.

    Re: Do you agree with selling condoms in Universities?

    I agree that condoms should be sold at universities. As it was said before, you can't stop two people from having sex. So, would you rather those two people have protection from unwanted pregnancies, STIs/STDs, and other issues? I would.

    As for the idea that a university is a place to learn, well, people will have sex anyway. So it goes back to my point, would you rather have protection or would you rather run the risk of becoming pregnant/gaining illnesses?

    Re: Do you agree with selling condoms in Universities?

    You know, a thought just crossed my mind. In my previous post i said that condoms should be given away for free. But if we look at the problem from another angle why not give pills away just like condoms. Condoms yes, but not pills?

    I don't have to explain you the difference between pills and condoms. Fact alone that pills exist is enough.

    Well, condoms are far easier to use, they don't have side effects (is there such a thing as latex alergy) and you don't have to wear one every day..... Can't be too sure about which one is mor efficient though, don't recall the numbers.... factors like smoking and drinking along with something like forgetting to take the pill can reduce its efficiency while a condom will always be as efficient as long as you use it properly (or you get a flawed one simply because no manufacturing proccess is 100% effective)....

    Re: Do you agree with selling condoms in Universities?

    What a hilarious thread

    Well I can't see any problems with it, I'm really not that religious, although I don't deny a possibility of God either.
    Culture is culture, meaning, it came from the people in the first place. If the people change, then I think it's totally oki for the culture to change as well. The moment you try to control culture and the people, it stops to evolve or slows down atleast.

    Whats the point with culture if the only value you got is to cling to old values..? For me atleast, to desperately hold on old values means that you don't accept culture as culture, but culture as a "law" to be uphold, which in my way of seeing it is denying the human to evolve and to be truly free.

    So back to the main topic, condoms at the university..? Come on, whoever studies there are fully aware of how sex works, and also fetch condoms if needed. If someone try to send a signal to people outside the University then I think it's ok.

    If people change, so will the culture, you shouldn't control people, and thus not control the culture.
    Sending a signal, is not controlling, it's people's own choice if they think it's oki or not, thereby culture will change as a result of that.
    Stopping a signal like this is the same as killing culture, the moment you "force" on it, the moment it stops to be culture.

    In my opinion atleast

    The pill is a medical intervention which strongly affects the body of the woman. Those should never be handed out without consulting a doctor first, not just for possible negative effects but also to explain the handling properly AND to choose the correct one for the girl in question. There are many different ones with different contents and it's not uncommon that the girl has to switch to a different product for better toleration. Personally I decided completely against it due to the possible side effect.

    Ontopic: I'm a little sad the topic starter is relating universities exclusively to unmarried young adults. I'm 31, mother of two children and attend university. I'm by far not the only one in my major and pretty much every university here offers a kindergarten system for their students by now. Additionally dual, post-education, late and elderly studies become more and more important. In some majors, especially Master and PhD, you have more 30+ aged students than young ones coming fresh from school.

    I live with my kids in a student dorm exclusively rented to families (students with kids), btw.

    True, it's the same here at my University. Even if I'm 24, I see a lot of people over my age having families and kids.
    Also Denmark is not a very religious minded country in it's culture, so having sex before marriage is pretty normal.
    Even if one came fresh from school, most people here would be 19/20 years old or more if they came directly from school. It's really not early to have sex.. Most extreme religious people would already be married --> sex at this age, and most none religious people would have had sex at this age.

    It's the same thing that happen with women eating hot dots in early days, women had to hide when eating hotdogs because it did send a wrong signal
    It was a huge taboo, but now a days, it's completely acceptable.
    Which I think is extremely good btw, just in case anyone did misunderstand.

    Same thing seems to be happening to condoms in various countries now, it's disturbing because it's something new, sending a "signal".

    We actually do have condoms for free in our universities. Not all the year of course, but still several times in semester you can get them for free in practically unlimited number. Also the funny thing is that those who handle this thing are little pretty teenage girls.

    I actually totally pro this. You can't prohibit sex for teens, especially when they go to university and thus the best way to handle it is to inform them about safe sex. I would say it's government's responsibility.

    Re: Do you agree with selling condoms in Universities?

    During our orientation week for first years, they gave all of us a condom within our welcome bag. Some people don't take it seriously and laugh at the fact that the university or orientation leaders/organizers do that, but they do it for a reason. I'm pretty sure that the upper years have experienced many things throughout their lives at post-secondary and they just want the first years to be safe in whatever they're doing whether it may be sex-related or not. The matter of the fact is that it would be irresponsible for the university to not try and reduce the percentage possibility of students contracting STIs around campus through sexual interactions. In short, I think it's a rather good idea to be selling condoms; even better would be leaving them out for free at the health clinic on campus.

    QFT, I agree.
    Also another angle to put it, is that universities isn't interested in women getting pregnant while they study, so that they can reach success before they worry about getting a family.
    Which is quite within the area of a University, to try promote it's students to continue their studies.

    I know many women just take a break and come back, but not all, and certainly also a bad thing for the overall study if it happens midway, getting out of sync with your study, so to say.

    Also on the note about pills, I think condoms are better due to the fact that the pills can be dangerous. It's rare, but not super rare... So why risk it, when condoms are perfectly fine?
    Yes I dislike having condom on, but it's important in many ways.
