|From Good Magazine|
Do take a look at this fascinating article by Christopher Purdy at GOOD Magazine, on how social media helps young people around the world to access and learn about condoms...especially in societies where sexual connection is more taboo. A taster:
...Social media and internet platforms have made it easier for young people around the world to access information, overcome cultural barriers, and engage in discussions that often sell condoms more as a lifestyle accoutrement than a prophylactic device. This was driven home to me one day when I sat down at a restaurant in Jakarta and was amazed to see a teenage girl sitting with her parents and wearing a DKT “Fiesta” condom foil strung on a necklace.
A fascinating read.
