It takes 4 hands to open this ‘consent condom,’ but does that really equal consent?

Argentinian sex toy retailer Tulipán has released a limited-edition condom in a special “tamper proof” package that requires four hands to open. Their goal is to raise awareness about consent. “Why can this box only be opened by two [people]? Because this is how consent works in relationships.

HIV Incidence and Risk Behaviours of People Who Inject Drugs in Bangkok, 1995–2012

HIV incidence in people who inject drugs in Bangkok declined from 5.7 per 100 person-years during the cohort study, to 2.7 per 100 person-years in the vaccine trial, to 0.7 per 100 person-years among PrEP study placebo recipients. Incidence peaked at 12.1 per 100 person-years in 1996 and declined to <1.0% during 2005–2012. Several factors likely contributed to the decline, including decreases in the frequency of injecting and sharing, improved access to HIV testing and antiretroviral therapy, and the use of PrEP. Expanding access to effective HIV prevention tools can hasten control of the HIV epidemic among PWID.
