Girls should always carry condoms. Know why? Sometimes, you just don’t plan for sex but it can happen, and as the saying goes, ‘Prevention is better than cure.’

For a country of one billion people and still procreating, we are rather odd about how we shun all talk of sex and contraception. Never mind the heaving bosoms and pelvic thrusts of our movies, it is rare to see a scientifically accurate conversation about sex taking place at school or work. So this ad is an albeit cheeky but welcome take on the need to carry protection because accidents happen. People have sex, sometimes planned and sometimes spontaneous. Having an active sex life is part and parcel of people’s life but there is still a lot of myths shrouding contraception as well as shame around it, especially for women. So watch this video and remember, safe sex is the way to go!
