California: Orange County College Cancels Plan to Put Free Condom in Campus Newspaper

November 8, 2007

Complaints from some students have halted plans to distribute free condoms in an upcoming issue of the Daily Titan newspaper at California State University-Fullerton. The paper and the student health center had planned to put some 4,500 condoms in the Nov. 14 edition. But a poster touting the giveaway showed stick figures appearing to have sex, leading some students to complain to the administration, which cancelled the promotion. The paper will instead include coupons that can be redeemed at the health center for free condoms. Executive Editor Ian Hamilton doubts this will be as effective. "It will just mean more students are likely to get pregnant or contract a disease because everyone will be too embarrassed or forget," he said.
