Navigating the condom aisle at the drug store has usually been the guy’s job, but Planned Parenthood is now offering a new line of condoms marketed to young women who may have felt embarrassed to carry condoms in the past. Packaged in chic, colorful boxes, “Proper Attire Condoms” advertise themselves as a “must have accessory” that are “required for entry.” With recent statistics in from the Center for Disease Control that 25 percent of all teenage girls have a sexually transmitted disease, condoms that women feel comfortable buying may be more important than ever.
