ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issues surrounding condom distribution in the U.S. Condoms have been used to prevent unplanned pregnancies and the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases (STD). Those who support condom use argue that condom distribution is a realistic and practical response to human sexual behavior. On the other hand, opponents of condom use claim that such practice is immoral. The history of condom use and distribution in the U.S. is explored, along with definition of terms related to condoms.
