A repost of a topic that got locked when board changes were made, but might still have some merit for those who are either looking to try something new, or just tend to be sort of cheap. What follows are all the offers for samples of safer sex-type products I could find, with as much crap and Free-XXX-Porn links weeded out as I could manage, too. None of the links contain adult-only material, though some offers are only open to those over eighteen, and sometimes only to the States, too. I make no guarantees about any of these offers, but they're yours to browse through, and maybe find some cool stuff in, too.

(BTW, I fond the original topic when browsing through some results for an unrelated search. That board function can bring up some rather cool stuff; even if it's not what you were looking for originally, it's bound to bring up something useful.)

KY UltraGel. I don't know what makes it Ultra, I guess that's what the sample's for.

December's issue of Cosmopolitan magazine also has a free sample of KY. I suppose it'll probably be in future issues too, hopefully.

And there's always FreeCondoms.com.

I found this faboo site, which provides low-cost condoms because it's run by students. They sell only Durex and Lifestyles condoms, and don't offer spermicide condoms. Yay! http://www.condomhall-condoms.org/

Hello,
Spermicide is a substance that kills sperm. Usually, spermicide is a strong detergent which dissolves sperm membranes. We don't recommend spermicide at Scarleteen because it irritate genitals and it's not very effective at preventing pregnancy.

Some schools do provide free condoms, and college clinics may offer discounts on contraceptives and free condoms, but as far as I know, no high schools provide free dosages of the pill. Due to the abstinence-only stance that the US government has, not many health insurance plans cover contraceptives.

For more information about the pill and how to get it, please check out the Sex Basics & Sexual Health FAQ.

In some states, minors can obtain abortions without parental consent; in others, parental consent is necessary. In the future, please take a moment to utilize the board search function before posting your topic. You could have searched for spermicide and the pill and found lots of answers. Furthermore, I think you'll find the FAQs in each forum very helpful. Most of the time, you'll be able to find the answer to your question just by doing a search, which saves time for you and makes our lives a lot easier too. Thanks!

Free condoms for Los Angeles County residents!!!

If you'd like a packet of condoms packed by yours truly, please call 800.758.0880. That's right, you get 8 Lifestyles lubricated condoms with instructions and a bilingual pamphlet on STDs, all packed lovingly by me into a discreet manila envelope.

Call the STD hotline at 800.758.0880, ask for a condom mailer, provide a name and address, and they'll be on their way to your mailbox. Who knows, maybe it'll be me on the other end of the line
