Magnum, Ecstasy, Bareskin. You might be more familiar with these different Trojan condoms. But did you know that there are 4 types of condoms?
1. Condoms w/ spermicide, which is a chemical that kills sperm. Not recommended for oral or anal sex.
3. Latex. Did you know that latex can stretch up to 800%? Used w/ oil-based lube will cause breakage and slippage.
4. Non-Latex. OK w/ oil-based lube
Condoms are THE cheapest and most accessible form of birth control. According to bedsider.org, 1 condom can costs as little as 18 cents! 18 cents vs. all the expenses of having a baby? Is that even a question?! Use a condom.
No money? No problem. Check your local family planning clinic and see if they offer free or low cost condoms.
