Packing a rubber isn't just his responsibility anymore.
Thankfully some of you have already received the memo: About a third of women say they carry protection in their purse on their night out, reports a new survey from the American Sexual Health Association (ASHA), which just released a short and sweet PSA to empower more females to follow their lead.
In the 32-second clip titled “You Be the Influence," alcohol is poured into an empty martini glass in front of a stark white backdrop while a voice talks over the sounds of a bar scene and warns that drinking can lead to unsafe sex unless you come prepared. A hand then tops off the drink with a condom in place of a decorative lemon wedge on the edge of the glass.
Considering that nearly 20 million new STI cases are reported each year and about 50 percent of all pregnancies are unintended, you might want to keep a condom—such as one of these four—handy. Check out the PSA here or watch it below, then spread the word to your girlfriends.
