Single Black Female Addicted to Retail

To all my single females who are feeling down and out, read this. It will definitely make you realize how lucky we are to be single. 🙂

Protect Yourselves…Female Condoms on the Rise???

I am a stickler for being in the know or just reading. I love to find things so what does that take, RESEARCH and much reading.

I got an email from the CityPaper about free events and movie screenings that you can win tickets to. I already put my name in for two *crossing my fingers*.

I ran across an extremely interesting article about the female condom. I was lucky enough to learn about this contraceptive in the 10th grade. Many teens at that age know only about the male condom. The article discusses how at a hair gallery, they have the female condoms sitting out and are free to take. The bad thing about it is that they have been sitting there for weeks. I think that females are scared to try things that they don’t know or haven’t been taught about. What I say, is to do your research, it is only to protect you. I can personally say I have seen one in person and it is quite interesting and it seems a little complicated to have on, but I say if more woman promote it and teach other females how it can be used, I think it will become pretty common in the months or years to come.

This year, Washington will be the first city to roll out a large-scale promotion aimed at getting women to use the female form of contraception that few even consider. M.A.C. gave a $500,000 grant which went to 5 local non-profit organizations that will distrubute 500,000 free female condoms at nail salons, barbershops, health centers and liquor stores around the area. I can say that they picked perfect spots to distrubute them, so two thumbs up for that.
