MPs Vote Against Compulsory Sex Education In Schools

Conservative MPs have voted to block plans for sex and relationship education (SRE) to be made compulsory in schools.

Government guidance on Sexual Education currently allows free schools & academies to opt out of teaching the subject in class. As the law stands, state schools are obligated to cover sex education from a biological aspect, but no British schools are required to teach pupils about the social or emotional aspects of sex, or make classes LGBT inclusive.

This obviously leaves a LOT up to the parents. How does EVERY parent approach the subjects of sex and relationships, same-sex relationships, sexual consent, sexual violence and domestic violence in the right way and without help from schools? These are ALL important topics which are growing more concerning as time goes by, and at a younger age for children!

The rejected amendment comes amid fresh criticism from charity campaigners, who claim present teachings are seriously out-dated for the “smartphone generation” of children who are exposed to the internet and influenced by social media.

SRE guidance for schools has not been updated in close to 17 years – making the current legislation older than the majority of pupils learning about the subject.

We at GiftCondom.com that this is abysmal from the current Government. How can children learn more about extremely important and sensitive topics from Twitter and Facebook, than their own schools?! There is some serious misguidance at play here and TOO MUCH is left down to parents.

Top 5 Condom Myths BUSTED

Each and every one of us has our own opinions on condoms. However you feel, they do put a stop to numerous problems we could all live without. There are some common misconceptions which that we are here to BUST. From the downright ludicrous to the absolute crazy, here’s numbers 1 to 5:

Pull Out Game Strong!
So, how many babies do we think are created because the guy promises he’d pull out in time? I’m hazarding a guess at hundreds of thousands. The fact is, before climaxing, a guy will pre-ejaculate, inseminating his female counterpart, and THEN ‘pull-out’. Pre-cum, as it has been fondly coined, is still able to get a girl pregnant! As Planned Parenthood says, a male who does not carry out withdrawal properly increases the chances of the woman becoming pregnant by 27%!

“I can’t feel anything with that thing on!”
This is perhaps the biggest lie told before sex by a man on one night stands. It is really something that with just a thin layer of latex, a penis becomes completely numb. Granted, it may take away a small amount of feeling, but the way some men go on about it being like “picking your nose with a glove on” is RIDICULOUS.

Double-wrapping
Not only is double-wrapping a total waste of condoms, but it can create friction between the two and eventually lead to hidden tears and a leakage of juices! A single condom is your best bet for protecting yourself from the dangers unprotected sex may bring.

‘I’m the girl, why should I have one?’
PET PEEVE ALERT. Just because girls do not own a penis, it does not mean they should not empower themselves! The best form of protection for intercourse for both genders is without a doubt condoms. So, why should it be a man’s job to carry them?! While we’re here, there is no reason for girls to be ’slut-shamed’ over preparing for sex in the right away either!

‘I always break them’ – Jimmy (5ft 3”, size 5 feet)
Oh boy, oh boy. Condoms come in all shapes and sizes and actually stretch in order to wrap around larger members of the penis fam. Now, I’m not saying condoms are unbreakable, because they certainly are, but come on… it really is hard to do so! Unless Shaquille Oneil is making this claim, I’d certainly not trust that person and ask why they don’t buy XL condoms if there was an issue.

So there we have it, five myths well and truly debunked. Remember, you can share the love and protect someone TODAY by visiting GiftCondom.com

The Best Form Of Protection

Where life is possible, it always tends to find its way toward procreation. Whether you’re Human or a randy Ladybird, intercourse is commonplace in life, But just so with Humans as it is with poor little ladybugs, sex comes with risks. With rising STD rates in both species, let us explain why Condoms are the best form of protection in the bedroom.

Birth Control pills are an excellent solution for contraception in many cases, but they are not a fail-safe method and they do nothing to prevent STDs. If you forget a pill then you may get pregnant, and even if you luck out, using a condom for a while is still advisable until you’re schedule is back on track with the prescription. Another thing to note is that, according to the NHS, some illnesses and antibiotics can affect how well the pill, or any hormonal birth control works. If you’ve been on antibiotics or have been sick with anything causing vomiting, you will want to use condoms as a secondary measure to protect against pregnancy.

Unplanned pregnancies are a major concern the world over. In today’s world, there are many contraceptive methods, but when one of these methods fails or isn’t present in a sexual scenario, condoms inevitably turn out to be the right answer. Many medical professionals recommend using two methods of contraception simultaneously to be completely fail-safe. Try to name me a safer combo than hormonal birth control and condoms, I’ll wait…

Some people now use a method known as “Natural Family Planning.” This is where the girl tracks her menstrual schedule and during the two weeks closest to her ovulation when she could get pregnant, unprotected sex does not occur. Most couples use condoms to protect against pregnancy.

There are many ways to have protected sex, but every single one of them is either better with a condom as well or better with a condom instead! Help someone stay completely safe today with GiftCondom.com

Antibiotic Resistance Week – What You NEED To Know!

Monday 14th November marked the start of Antibiotic Resistance Week! Huge numbers of people are inadvertently putting themselves at risk and do not have a CLUE what is happening or understand the full extent of this global issue. So, here we are to clear things up for you (yes, YOU). With the rise of bacteria resistant to treatment, consequences are becoming ever present in societies across the planet.

To understand the true gravity of the situation and why this week exists, here are some FAQs with answers from Public Health England

Q: So, what in Heaven’s name is Antibiotic Resistance anyway?

It’s when bacteria become resistant to our antibiotics so the medicines no longer kill the bacteria

Q: Yikes… What are the causes?

It happens naturally over time, especially when they’re taken with no need or the wrong antibiotics are administered

Q: Hold on a second, can we not just develop new ones?!

The last time a major new class of antibiotics was introduced was during the 80s!

Q: Fudge. But how many people are actually dying from it so far? Surely it’s not taking it’s toll yet?

It’s estimated 25,000 in Europe alone have suffered

Noticeably for the UK, a recent outbreak of the STI Gonorrhoea (HL-AziR) has raised concerns much further, ESPECIALLY for sexually active 18-25-year-olds who are most at risk. This particular strain of the STD has become resistant to treatment, becoming extremely hard to contain, and dubbed ‘Super-Gonorrhoea’ by the press (to read up further on that particularly sticky situation, click here)

PROTECT YOUR STUDENT KIDS NOW WITH GiftCondom.com

With 1 in 3 people taking antibiotics at least once a year, it is important that more people take notice of what’s going on and start thinking about measures to protect yourselves and your families.

For 18-25s everywhere, with the current state of resistant STDs, the advice is simple: EVERYONE can significantly reduce their risk by using condoms with all new and casual partners. And this, people, is just one of the reasons we are doing what we are at GiftCondom. Protect your loved ones TODAY!

Pillow Talk: When You Shouldn’t Take “NO” For An Answer!

Modern media is rightfully spotlighting sexual conduct and emphasising the importance of mutual consent. There are obviously important legal, social and moral aspects of sex. In almost every instance “No” should serve as an immediate reason to comply with the wishes of your partner. However, there is one time when ‘No’ just isn’t good enough… Never take “No” for an answer when it comes to protection!

 
1. “No, we don’t need a condom because I’m healthy and I’m clean.”

If someone claims that they are so healthy and clean that you don’t need to use a condom, their claims may turn out to be inaccurate. Someone who isn’t using condoms with you is unlikely to be using condoms with everyone else and your risk of contracting an STI goes up!

2. “No, I don’t like condoms, it’s difficult to use them.”

Using condoms can leave a mark on someone’s memory if they’ve had trouble with them in the past. Maybe they weren’t able to get hard or they couldn’t figure out how to unwrap a condom properly in the dark. Gift Condoms are high-sensitivity material properly lubricated for maximum pleasure, so that excuse is nonsense… and honestly, if they don’t have the intellect needed to properly unwrap a condom, are they really someone you want to be intimate with at all?

3. “No worries, I’m already on birth control.”

If you had a pound for every person who has lied about taking birth control you would be too busy counting your money to contemplate having sex with anyone! You want to prevent pregnancy, you need to protect yourself from getting an STI – that means YOU need to be the one making sure you are safe and you can do that easily by rejecting their “no” and telling them to it’s a condom right now or it’s time for that awkward walk home alone while contemplating what could have been!

4. “No, and we are done talking about it.”

Someone who says something like that to you before sex doesn’t have a problem that can be solved by a condom. Dump that loser right now and find yourself someone worth having sex with instead. Even more than the gift of a condom, you deserve the gift of a loving, caring and open-minded partner capable of treating you with the respect you deserve!
