Part of being a responsible adult is taking the necessary precautions before you have sex with someone. Aside from talking about each other's sexual history and giving consent, it's also important to use a condom. When it comes to health and safe sex, using this contraceptive method is a pretty big deal. Fun fact: A recent study conducted by Southeast Asia's leading online shopping companion, the iPrice Group, shows that in the Philippines, Pinoys googled "birth control pills" the most in the first trimester of 2021. Apparently, there's a growing interest in condoms and emergency contraceptives.
And ICYMI, a "unisex condom" officially exists now! (Yup, that's right.) According to a report published on October 28 by Reuters, "A Malaysian gynaecologist has created what he says is the world's first unisex condom that can be worn by females or males and is made from a medical grade material usually used as a dressing for injuries and wounds." (Pretty interesting, right?) Introducing: the Wondaleaf Unisex Condom. Check it out below.
