huh? Are you referring to health insurance rates? Then modern society 
should provide condoms with our tax dollars. Otherwise, I am not sure 
what insurance you are referring to.

I have NEVER needed to see a chirugeon. Why? Because I carry my own first 
aid kit. Its the responsible, intelligent thing to do. 

Why do events sometimes have chirugeons and sometimes have first aid 
kits? Because its a courteous service to offer.  Do we have to offer it? 
No. If there has been a minor injury, its nice to get it quickly taken 
care of. I have used stuff out of my own kit when needed. 

I don't think, though, that condoms fall under the FIRST AID category. I 
certainly wouldn't think to ask the chirugeon for a condom. People have 
sex everyday at events and at home (and probably other places too). I 
don't know anywhere as an adult that I can go in modern society to get 
free condoms and I don't see why an SCA group should provide that service 
either.  I don't really care if they do, I just don't think they should 
have to or be expected to.
