First let me say that I believe we have first aid kits to care for
individuals who get minorly injured doing something SCA related. Now, I am
fully aware that having sex at events is no new/unheard of thing, but it
is not the REASON we are there (well not officially for some of us
anyway). We are there to recreate this wonderful period and do fighting of
all kinds in which, unfortunately, some of us occasionally get hurt.
I'd like everyone to sit back and look at WHAT we are, what we do...events
(like it or not) are traditionaly gatherings wherein we pummel one another
into submission -I know that now we are more PC and have events other
than tourneys, but look at our roots, where we came from, way back when
it was about knights and ladies and then we got PC, and a lot more fun :).
Yet I digress...Sex is a side thing that happens, just like going to
the bathroom or smoking...it's not the reason we are there but rather an
occurance that takes place at said events. Does it really sound
prioritized to provide condoms in first aid kits originally designed for
our fighters which others use when in need?
DO NOT get me wrong I AM ALL FOR SAFE SEX, and what you do with whom is
your own business and doesn't concern me unless it does, if you catch my
