U. Utah Uses ‘Pleasure Packs’ to Discreetly Send Condoms to Students

U. Utah Uses ‘Pleasure Packs’ to Discreetly Send Condoms to Students

“We want to empower students to feel like they have access to resources”

Are students incapable of accessing condoms on their own, if needed?

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

The University of Utah created ‘Pleasure Packs’ to discreetly mail condoms to students

It’s sort of like the Grubhub of safe sex.

Only in place of ordering a burger and fries, the University of Utah’s new delivery service lets students pick out a custom package of condoms and lube.

“And they’ll be sent right to your dorm,” boasted Grace Mason, a junior and the force behind starting the program, hosted by the U.’s Center for Student Wellness.

The school has cheekily branded the deliveries “Pleasure Packs.” And students can request one for free and have it delivered to campus housing in a discreet envelope. All it takes is filling out a brief survey of what you want — latex-free or XL condoms, oral dams, water- or silicone-based lubricant — and an order will be mailed your way.

The service launched in January. In the first week, more than 30 students requested a pack. By month’s end, more than 50 had.

“We want to empower students to feel like they have access to resources,” Mason added. “And this is just a great way to do that and break down the stigmas around sex with funny slogans, reminding people that pleasure is a part of sex.”

Anyone else remember the old Doonesbury story line about the Dr Whoopee delivery service? Once again satire not only becomes reality, but the reality is even more extreme than the satire.

“Access to resources “? In my day, we had access to Thrifty. SavOn, Walgreens, Long’s…

I recall a couple kids came up with ‘SpermBusters’ when i was college. Recall also that UofU is accross town for BYU (IIRC) and they take great pleasure in tweaking the Mormon culture and BYU when ever they can. Lot’s a JackMormons.

I don’t think it’s a good idea to encourage sex outside of marriage, yes, even though I am aware most people engage, I think the 60’s free for all has had a devastating effect on our culture and country

I was part of it, I know…

They can buy the condoms at the corner store

We wonder why college is so expensive

    Absolutely. There are times I’d like to apologize to the world for a large part of what I did between 1968 and 1975 or so.
