Just a note to thank you for the beautiful condom cases. I clearly delighted a group of very at risk high school girls the other day when after a not so promising conversation about healthy decisions, I brought out a few of the cases. They thought they were beautiful and wanted to know more about condoms…..the conversation took a positive turn. Today, I took two dozen to the Mitchellville Women’s Correctional Facility. About every 12 weeks I do a program about STD/HIV and birth control for inmates who are preparing for release. They will receive the cases upon release when they get a few personal items to get started along with information about every Title X funded clinic in the state. Staff members were impressed that they were so pretty and functional.
I will look forward to hearing from you, and again, thank you such a great product and for making it available to us.

What are people gonna think? Growing up in the 60′s and 70′s I remember guys carrying condoms in their wallets for “JUST IN CASE®” they got lucky and not having one was a “deal breaker.” Girls didn’t – exactly for the reason you stated, “What wouldpeople think?” Taboo!
I am of the mindset that it has always been a guy’s responsibility to have one. But now, that my precious daughters are involved, just having one is so much more important that who brought it or what people think. If someone had told me ten years ago that I would someday purchase “condom compacts” for my daughters, I would have rolled my eyes and walked away. Because that person would have been the person my dad warned me about when he said, “never argue with an idiot, people watching may not be able to tell which is which.”
My how things have changed. I just purchased 2 condom compacts a Valentine gifts for my daughters… Wonder if anyone will notice my selfishness… they are actually gifts to me.
Sincerely, An Old-Fashioned Dad
