Women Across the World Reject the Female Condom

Honestly can any women who read the blog can actually say that they have used this? It just look relly uncomfortable and really un-sexy so I can see why it has not caught on. More below:

Where female condoms have been made available, they’ve proven to be an effective defense in sexual matters.

“This is a 15-year scandal born of ignorance and inertia,” said Oxfam International spokesperson Farah Karimi, in a press statement released during last week’s International AIDS Conference in Mexico City. “We now know that millions of women might have been spared HIV, unwanted pregnancies, and empowered themselves in the process, if they had access to this simple method.”

Cost has also been an obstacle.

Carlos Zarco, director of Rostros y Voces, the observer member of Oxfam International in Mexico, said: “The female condom is 18 times more expensive than a male condom. It’s obvious why women are not using it more.”

On drugstore.com, five female condoms cost a hefty $17.89 compared with the $7.19 charged for 12 men’s condoms.
