While I try hard to believe that are populace are mature and well-
behaved (add in your own adjectives)  people, there will be those who 
will abuse any generosity.  Give them an inch... they'll take a mile. 
But I am against the position of condoms for sale.  There are too 
many people who show up to events with just enough or not enough 
funds to make it home.  Good health is not just for those who can 
afford good health.  Donations would be good, but not mandatory.

They should be made available in an area that is not being monitored.
