You may pick up the following items every two weeks:

Condom Pack

Condoms, sometimes called external condoms, are put onto a penis or sex toy to provide protection during oral, anal, and vaginal sex. There are five types of condoms, available for you to choose what’s right for you: two types of lubricated, non-lubricated, non-latex, and extra-large.

Lubricant or Spermicidal Gel

Lube helps to decrease friction during sex (all types of sex-oral, anal, vaginal, outercourse) which can help reduce condom breakage and increase pleasure. Spermicidal gel can help to decrease some friction like lube, but also contains a sperm-killing agent. The spermicidal gel provides some protect against pregnancy, no protection against STIs, so is most effective when used with a barrier method of birth control. Lube does not protect against pregnancy or STIs and should be used with a barrier method of birth control. Remember water-based and silicone-based lubes are safe to use with latex. You can only pick up one of these two products every two weeks.

Latex Barriers

Latex barriers, sometimes called dental dams, provide STI protection during oral stimulation (oral sex) of the vagina or anus. You can choose from a variety of flavor scented latex barriers.

You may pick up the following items once per year:
