the issue is not about "sex happens", but about basic personal
true, "sex happens", but especially in the modern world, not taking
basic precautions to guard your health and that of your partners is
the height of irresponsibility. basic common sense dictates that if
you are sexually active, you carry condoms ... been doing so since i
was 18, lets see that was about 22'ish years ago.

hey, i carry my own field kits with me optimised for my primary
activities ... that being to repair abrasion (motorcyclist) and to
deal with my allergies. that is easily carried in my kit-bag.
usually pack more complete general kit in the truck, still it's nice
to know that the people responsible for the other specialized
activities that i enjoy (say heavy fighting) have the foresight to
keep medical kits optimized for those activities to hand ... i have
no problem contributing to allowing funds to be allocated to support

no need to resort to isults or make unwarranted assumptions about my
beliefs, nor attempt to "seed" the conversation accordingly.

like i said, if you can't afford them, weren't responsivble enough
to pack them, need more than you planned for, feel free to track me
down, as i usually carry spares ... and as practice usually donate to
the "condom jar" when i pass it by (take one when you need one, put
one back when you have one ...).
a public donation system (the jar approach) seems to work a lot
better about keeping such matters visible and in mind ... which in
my experience serves to encourage people to take responsibility for
their own actions.
though it would be wonderfully amusing if some king levied a
kingdom-wide "condom tax" for grins ...
