Young People's C-Card - Guest Blog

The C-CARD Scheme, if you do not already know is a FREE confidential condom distribution network for young people living in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly. The scheme is available up until the age of 25 and has over 200 organisations offering the service.
Condoms are the only form of contraception that protects you against a sexually transmitted infection as well as unwanted pregnancy. However, what people do not realise is that condoms also enhance pleasure and enjoyment in your safe sexual practice. Imagine enjoyable oral, vaginal or anal sex, not worrying about catching Gonorrhoea, chlamydia, syphilis or HIV. Imagine using condoms that enhance pleasure and prolong erections through rib and dots, stimulating lubricant, various sizes and a great choice of flavours.
“Biggest reason condoms fail is user error!”
The freedom that condom use can give a couple across all aspects of their healthy lifestyle is immense. Condoms should not be seen as an after-thought in sex. The C-CARD scheme is about teaching you to be a condom pro or a sexpert before you need to use them. It gives you the opportunity to discuss your sexual health with a trained professional, ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask but not too sure who to ask about sex and learn about safe sexual health. The scheme also gives you choice with condoms, from sizing, latex free, flavours and ribs and dots all completely free of charge and unlimited access.
