The Buzz from WaPo: High school students and college-age adults have been complaining to District officials that the free condoms the city has been offering are not of good enough quality and are too small and that getting them from school nurses is "just like asking grandma or auntie."
The Official Response: So D.C. officials have decided to stock up on Trojan condoms, including the company's super-size Magnum variety, and they have begun to authorize teachers or counselors, preferably male, to distribute condoms to students if the teachers complete a 30-minute online training course called "WrapMC" -- for Master of Condoms.

Let's get one thing real straight here. Condoms save lives. Pure and simple. Either by the prevention of STDs or by the prevention of pregnancy, especially among those people who are not ready to be patents...and some are never ready.
If you think the distribution of condoms promotes sexual activities, especially among young people, you need to think some more. People have been having sex at ages younger than you think is appropriate since the beginning of time, and no amount of praying, preying, or guilt mongering is going to change that. Not on this planet.
Condoms should be freely available at every corner.
