“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.”
