Sex is safe again

Publication YearIssue Date 

Students can sleep safely this week, the Students' Union's supply of free condoms has been replenished.

Students looking to get lucky last week with the aid of a free condom from the SU may have noticed an empty fish bowl and a sign asking students to donate money to the Campus Food Bank. Contrary to popular belief, this was not a cruel joke, the SU simply ran out of condoms.

"The fundraiser had nothing to do with the condoms," said SU Vice-President Events Richard Bergen.

The lack of condoms can be attributed to human error. The condoms are donated by Trojan's parent company, Church and Dwight.

"Church and Dwight sent us 2000 free condoms this summer," explained Bergen. "We got low and drafted another [request] letter, which was lost."

While SU members were fumbling with paperwork, volunteers at the Info Centre made an attempt to raise money for the Campus Food Bank.

Two thousand new condoms arrived courtesy of Church and Dwight Fri., Oct. 24.

Students need not worry about another condom shortage in the future. Bergen promises "this time we'll be on the ball."

Condome is an easy solution in a mix society but nothing is better than to avoid it in a society of mature and educated people. Once an option of getting married any time and at an any place is availble. Grown up adults do realize the consequences a female suffer once she undergo an unwanted pregnency. She needs to be saved from such physical and mental horror. Although as a young mind and under the over-riding influence of youth she may yield to sexual intercourse but a few minutes of couplation may last an agony of months...... We all need to educate ourselves and the best education is available in the teachings of the Holy Quran. Just read the english translation of the Holy Quran and you will find the answer.
