Condom Co-op opens at Salt Lake Community College
Salt Lake Community College’s (SLCC) Health and Wellness Services announces the formation of the Condom Co-Op on World AIDS Day, December 1, 2011. During the HIV and AIDS awareness activities on campus, Health Promotion Program Manager Tatiana Burton and Family Nurse Practitioner Michelle Neeshan, APRN talked about the co-op and how to use a condom correctly.
Membership into the co-op is the cost of a box of condoms, and there are two boxes to choose from. The Pleasure Box offers 15 condoms for $5. It has glow-in-the-dark, ribbed, baggy headed, ultra-thin and flavored.
“Strawberry is the best,” says Neeshan.
According to Burton, the Mega Box contains 55 condoms and is “like a big happy meal box.” In addition to the Pleasure Box condoms, the Mega Box contains 40 regular condoms.
Students at SLCC support Health and Wellness Services through student fees and are eligible to take advantage of the low- to no-cost programs that they offer.
Sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing is free for students. Co-op members get an additional STI test free. They also support Health and Wellness Services for other students and get a great deal on safer sex options.
Health and Wellness Services encourages students to “Buy more. Use more. Spread less.”
