As I was browsing on Facebook recently, I saw a picture of an order number showing that the state of Texas was offering contraceptives for free, along with free shipping.

You can also get lubrication and dental dams added to your order. The state of Texas is using a website called www.texaswearscondoms.com, where you can get up to 50 free items sent to any address in Texas. The state of Texas started this for its residents since the risk of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease (STD) has gone up in the past few years, especially among high school and college students.   

On the website, there is a lot of good information that everybody should take advantage of, such as tips for knowing how to give consent to your partner for having intercourse. The website offers a lot of helpful information, such as the right way to put on a contraceptive and the right way to have a healthy sex life. There is another tab to help identify the symptoms of the many STDs, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes and syphilis.

The site also provides information for where to get pap smears done, procedures and the reason why woman must have this done at least once a year. It also lists the locations of clinics across the state where you can receive STD or HIV screenings. It’s an amazing program which people should take advantage of to keep a healthy relationship with your partner and protect yourself.

Once you place your order, you will receive an email survey within 24 hours. After completing the survey, you will receive an order confirmation. Your order should arrive within 14 to 21 days. The program only sends these items to residents in Texas. These items are for personal use, not to resell, and only one order can be placed per month.

This is a great way to keep everybody protected, since I know many college students make excuses for not wearing protection or using contraceptives, such as not having enough money, being too embarrassed to go shop for them, or not knowing the right way to use them because of a lack of knowledge. I would really encourage people to at least visit the page and see if this will work out in the long run. Condoms are often used in sex education programs, because they have the capability to reduce the chances of pregnancy and the spread of some sexually transmitted diseases when used correctly. According to a 2000 report by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), consistent use of latex condoms reduces the risk of HIV/AIDS transmission by approximately 85 percent relative to risk when unprotected sex is happening.

It is really important to have a healthy sex life and be responsible for yourself and your surroundings. Therefore, I agree and support the website, a discrete way to get help and be informed.
