Family Planning

FullSizeRender (42).jpgWhy is it not easy to buy condoms in Berkeley, California?  It’s easy to buy crack in Berkeley, California. I walked into CVS to buy condoms today and found them locked up in a cage. I pressed a button and over the loud speaker I heard, “Someone come help miss sexually active buy the big box of Durex Extra Sensitive Extra Lubricated condoms to assist with her family planning needs” or something like that.

Google defines family planning as, “the practice of controlling the number of children in a family and the intervals between their births, particularly by means of artificial contraception or voluntary sterilization.” Umm, I’m just trying to have protected sex no bigee. Why is this section called family planning if you can also by flavored lube and vibrators? Why the fuck are condoms locked in a cage? And pregnancy tests too, that’s just rude. I’ve actually been lectured by the store clerk with the power to unlock my First Response before.

I refuse to believe that the sex stuff is locked up at CVS because people steal it. Do people steal a lot of tampons too? The experience made me grumpy. I got the big box so that I don’t have to return anytime soon.
