I just wanted to give a shout out on the virtue of Safer Sex Kits... it's sort of like a more "grown up" version of a Travel Fun Kit or Happy Meal (well, without the food unless you're talking flavored lubes and condoms...) but arguably even more fun!

Hooray for buying your own condoms! I've always been a fan. :) I will also say that free condoms from health centers and clinics, as great and necessary a public service as they are, are OK but I really recommend spending the money on a brand that you and your partner/s like for comfort and safety reasons. I see it as a good investment and even pretty darn "cheap" entertainment when you think of the extremely low price per condom (compared to the $10+ admission per person at so many movie theaters these days, for example.)
